At the Beijing Auto Show, which opens tomorrow, September 26, Changan will unveil the Vision-V concept. This is the prototype of the second model from the Uni family.

The first car in the new series is the compact crossover Uni-T. So, obviously, the new member of the family will surpass the “first-born” in size. The debutant of the auto show in Beijing has already appeared before the public, without waiting for the official premiere: he was declassified by the local media during the preparation of the brand’s stand. The novelty was named Uni-V.

In length, it can reach 4.9 meters with a wheelbase of 2.8 meters and have a three-row salon. For comparison, the length of the “junior” SUV was 4,515 mm, the distance between the axles was 2,710 mm. It is difficult to predict whether the serial crossover will look like a show car: Uni-T at one time did without a demonstration prototype. Recall that the same Uni-T is set in motion by a one and a half liter gasoline “turbo four” with a capacity of 180 hp, combined with a 7-speed “robot”. A cross is worth 113,900 – 133,900 yuan.

For the new Changan Uni-T, they predict a 233-horsepower two-liter turbo engine. The automatic transmission from Aisin can act as a gearbox.

But the “senior” crossover is unlikely to get all-wheel drive. But an electric modification, taking into account the interests of local motorists, may appear. At one time, Uni-T was supposed to arrive at the Geneva Auto Show. So the Uni family is expected in the European car market.
