At the Guangzhou International Motor Show, the Chinese brand officially unveiled the Changan UNI-K crossover, the second model of the new Gravity series.

UNI is a new brand from Changan Automobile that unveiled its first production model at the beginning of the year. Dubbed UNI-T, it was an elegant SUV aimed at younger buyers. The brand’s second model is the UNI-K crossover, which draws inspiration from its “little brother” but has a design inspired by the Changan Vision-V concept unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show last month.

The novelty is positioned as a 5-seater mid-size SUV. It is assumed that the price of Changan UNI-K may exceed 180 thousand yuan, or about 2.09 million rubles, and its sales will start only in the first quarter of next year.

The front grille of the production model gradually evolves from a hexagonal element with a beveled bevel in the center to a more rounded one and finally merges with the front bumper. Sharp split headlamps on both sides of the front end are matched with unique LED daytime running lights on both sides of the front bumper.

The dimensions of the model are 4865/1948/1690 mm, and the wheelbase reaches 2890 mm. The most eye-catching spoiler and through taillights, reminiscent of the aerospace brand. The exhaust pipes are located on both edges of the rear bumper, which gives the new product a visually stylish and sporty look.

The interior of Changan UNI-K uses a new technology intelligent cockpit, in which a narrow and long LCD display is brought forward, and the viewing angle is maintained at 13 degrees. Thus, the distance that the eyes travel between the multimedia system and the road is reduced. The large center control screen uses an automotive-grade curved J-shaped Corning Gorilla glass that not only sharpens images, but also prevents fingerprints.

The car is also equipped with iFlyy 3.0 intelligent voice assistant, which supports voice training and customizable voice assistant audio source functions. In addition, UNI-K also uses a completely new computing platform to speed up the system. The download takes just 4.7 seconds, which greatly reduces the waiting time.

As for the engine range, the Changan UNI-K will be powered by a new generation Blue Whale 2.0T turbocharged engine with a maximum output of 230 hp, which is paired with an Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission. At the same time, the car will also be equipped with a timely all-wheel drive system, which is available at a surcharge.
