Competitor BMW X4 from Changan dumped camouflageJuly 9, 2018
Photos of the disguised cross-coupe Changan were published in May this year. Now in the “heavenly” social network Weibo appeared pictures of the model without any camouflage. Local media believe that the novelty will be called CS85, in the line of the brand, it will occupy a niche between the SUVs CS75 and CS95. It is assumed that the first cross and became a donor for the coupe.
Changan CS75 itself has recently been updated, in its dimensions this all-terrain vehicle is close to the BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, so that the Germans can be considered competitors of the Chinese cross-coupe. The length of the restyling CS75 is 4 650 mm, width – 1 850 mm, height – 1 695 mm, wheelbase 2,700 mm. For comparison, the dimensions of the first generation BMW X4 (this model is currently sold in China): 4 683/1 890/1 636 mm, wheelbase – 2,810 mm. Dimensions of the GLC Coupe: 4 734/1 890/1 603 mm, the distance between the axles is 2,873 mm.
Data about the filling Changan CS85 is not available yet. Most likely, the engine will get the novelty from the CS75: an updated “SUV” is available in China with a petrol turbo-four 1.5 power of 178 hp, working in tandem with six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The drive of the updated CS75 is only front, although the pre-reform crossover has a 4×4 version.
It is expected that the official premiere of the Changan cross-coupe will be held before the end of this year. The price will be higher than that of CS75. The last cross today costs from 99,800 yuan. At the same time, the Chinese coupe is obviously much cheaper than the BMW X4 (from 489,800 yuan) and the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe (from 463,800 yuan)
