Now the whole process is preparing the Chinese three-row crossover for sales. In the meantime, car lovers are spoiled with fresh photos showing the novelty salon. It is designed for five passengers and the driver, but, apparently, can safely accommodate the seven.

The base model T500 company Zotye Auto showed at the Shanghai Motor Show a year ago, and then in the spring released it to the Chinese markets. A three-row version of the SUV in the Middle Kingdom will not appear next week, on the eve local media shared photos of the salon.

In the company the crossover is positioned as a six-seater, but we see that the second row is not divided, but on the contrary it is connected and represents something like a sofa. Roughly speaking, of course. And although there are only two seat belts, three people can be accommodated on this row with comfort.

It is not known for certain whether the dimensions of the three-row version have changed, but most likely they will remain the same as for the standard: length – 4,632 mm, width – 1,850 mm, height – 1,695 mm, wheelbase – 2,700 mm.

Under the hood of changes, no one is also expected, so there’s a 1.5-liter TNN4G15T turbo engine with 156 hp and 215 Nm of torque. Couple with it will work 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. By the way, for the usual cross we also offer the TNN4G16A engine with a capacity of 1.6 liters with the output of 116 hp and 151 Nm, plus 5-speed manual transmission. For both versions only the front-wheel drive is provided.

On the cost, however, the manufacturer has not yet announced, although the sales are already on the nose. Standard T500 in China is sold from 69.8 thousand yuan.

In the meantime, Zotye has already released the youth crossover Traum Seek 5 to the Chinese market. The rear optics of the model somewhat resembles BMW cars, and the bumper – of other Chinese counterparts.
