Chery did not keep up with all the other brands, and also decided to create its own subsidiary brand, designed for a specific target audience. Jeotur is preparing for its debut with its first model – the X70 crossover.

As early as January 2018, it became known about the creation of a new brand of Jeotur, a subsidiary of the Chinese company Chery. The public debut took place in April at the Beijing Automobile Show. According to preliminary information, the new brand will be issued exclusively by crossovers and minivans. Of course, the first model was a crossover, which received the X70 index, already known prices, and the crossover itself is completely declassified.

So far, the company has not started disclosing information on which platform Jeotur X70 was built, but experts are confident that its own development of Chery was used. At least – this is the most logical option. The length of the X70 is 4 720 mm, the width is 1,900 mm, the height is 1 695 mm, the wheelbase is 2 745 mm. Road clearance – 210 mm.

The novelty will be offered both in two, and three-row modifications, but whether the rear row will be convenient for adult passengers – is not yet known. For the Jetour crossover, there are: 17-, 18- or 20-inch discs, a large-scale infotainment system, a digital instrument panel, an autonomous parking system, a rear view camera, heated steering and seats, frontal collision avoidance systems and alerts for leaving occupied by the lane of motion.

Under the hood of the X70 will be installed a 1.5-liter turbocharger with a maximum power of 147 horsepower and 210 Nm of torque. In a pair with it will work six-speed manual transmission, or eight-speed automatic transmission. Full drive systems will not even be in the list of additional options.

The cost of the Jeotur X70 will be about 73,000 yuan for the base equipment, and the top-end version will cost about 124,000 yuan. A more detailed price will be published later. There were no plans to sell Jetour cars in other countries in Chery.
