The company showed the image of the second-generation machine

The Chinese premium brand Hongqi (the name translates as “Red Flag”), which is part of the FAW group, has published the first images of the new generation H7 sedan. The model will first try on a new design, developed with the participation of ex-Rolls-Royce stylist Giles Taylor, and will also receive a number of technical changes.

The current Hongqi H7 is the first generation of the car. The sedan, built on the Toyota Crown platform, was shown in 2012, and in 2016, the model experienced a small facelift. The new H7 will be made in a different way: “more square” contours of the body, a U-shaped grille, taillights connected by a luminous stripe. Probably, the “cart” will be updated.

Chinese journalists say that a HBO will be registered under the hood of the H7 in 4GC20TD three options forcing. The most powerful will produce 380 Nm of torque (now the most powerful H7 engine – a three-liter atmospheric turbo six – gives out 300 Nm of the moment). The gearbox is a preselective robotized with two clutches, replacing the six-speed automatic transmission. Acceleration time to 100 km/h – less than eight seconds.

In addition to the H7, the Hongqi model range has HS5, HS7 and electric EHS3 crossovers, as well as the H5 and L5 sedans. The latter evolved from a family of machines intended for the party elite of China, but was conceived as a model for free sale.
