This model entered the market two years ago. Since that time, the SUV has been available with an uncontested “turbo six”.

The motor boasted a displacement of three liters and a power of 337 horsepower. Such a power unit is combined with an 8Aisin automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system. Now the automaker has prepared for its large SUV a two-liter 252-horsepower “turbo four”, supplemented by a 48-volt starter-generator.

A seven-speed “robot” was chosen as a transmission for it. The new front-wheel drive Hongqi HS7 45TD with a “junior” engine received a price tag of 275,800 – 309,800 yuan. For comparison, the more powerful 50TD version cost 349,800 – 459,800 yuan. The interior of the new crossover, despite the lower price tag, received a natural wood finish. But for the upholstery of the chairs they used eco-leather and suede.

Also, the novelty got a virtual dashboard, a 10.1-inch central screen and a “touchscreen”, which is responsible for the “climate” in the car.

The new, more affordable version is expected to help Hongqi HS7 catch up with its foreign brand logo competitors.

Previously, the photos showed the new luxury crossover Hongqi E-HS9, which is made in the style of Rolls-Royce. The main feature of the novelty is a fully electric power plant. A very rich set of options and electronic assistants will appear in the starting configuration.
