Hunkt Canticie is another Chinese copy of the Range Rover SportNovember 16, 2019
Another Range Rover double came from China. Hunkt Canticie is based on last year’s Zotye T900, another Range wannabe.
The SUV, created in the image of Range Rover Sport, belongs to the Chinese automaker Hanlong Auto from Hubei Province. Its Chinese name is Kuangshi, and it is much cheaper than the original Range Rover. As these images show, the appearance of the Hunkt Canticie is very similar to the current Range Rover Sport.
For all the similarities, there are still some unique touches, including headlights, a chrome front grill and taillights, but if you attached a couple of Range Rover badges, many would not replace the differences, in fact thinking that this is the latest car from the British automaker.
Local buyers will have the only available engine, namely a 2.08-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 218 hp, which is far from the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 used, for example, Range Rover Sport SVR. Canticie has a top speed of 185 km / h, which is also quite modest in relation to any legal Range Rover car.
To Hanlong’s credit, the interior is very different from any existing Range Rover model. Most noteworthy is the fully digital instrument cluster and a second screen with infotainment controls in the center of the dashboard. There is also a large round gear selector and a number of physical buttons for climate control.
Prices are what make Canticie very attractive. In China, the lowest-priced full-size Range Rover costs 1.22 million yuan. In comparison, Canticie will cost only 126,800 yuan, making it ten times more affordable for local customers.
