Greatwall have jumped into the hatchback game feet first once they realized that SUV and Truck sales were about to fall through the floor. Their first model was the Great Wall Peri, which they followed up with the Greatwall Florid, the Coolbear and the soon to be unknown hatch.

Their first concept sedan was shown at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year where it surprised crowds with its funky looks, which appeared to be a mixture of sporty and formal, an unusual mix that worked just right for the usually bland designing automaker.

A leaked early version of a forthcoming Greatwall mini sedan has been leaked to the internet and early opinions are not good. The mini sedan seems to resemble the unknown hatchback mentioned earlier, with a notchback trunk attached to the rear. The sedan seems to have E-Class like folds in the door (although, every car has them now) and a Lifan 520 front end. It’s not clear where Great Wall are going with this one, perhaps its just best to bring out the sports concept sedan instead?

Re: Great Wall sedan

Nothing special in my oppinion. In reality it will be even less attractive.

But at least it's not an exact copy of some other model.
Greatwall Voleex C30 Priced

The Greatwall Voleex C30 comes in four levels: ’standard’ for 58.900 rmb, ‘comfort’ for 62.900, ‘luxury’ for 65.900 and ‘elite’ for 71.900 rmb. One engine for all (for now): 1.5 litre with 77kw and 138nm. Greatwall expects the hardest competition from the Buick Excelle and Hyundai Elantra. Size: 4452×1705x1480, wheelbase is 2610.

‘Voleex’ is Greatwall’s new brand name for sedans but will only be used outside China, in Chinese all Voleexes are called ‘Tengyi’.

Great Wall Motor releases 2013 C30 sedan in October 10th, which has the same lineup as the 2012 model. Prices for the seven 1.5L models, with a MT or CVT, remain unchanged, ranging between 64,500-83,500 Yuan.

Upgrades are limited and largely non-consequential (except perhaps the addition of daytime running lights). On the outside, one will notice that the front grille now comprises two chrome bars instead of three, wheels are changed to a five-spoke design, and the front lighting system now features daytime running lights to improve safety.

Interior modifications are more noticeable, as the instrument panel and dashboard underwent a few major cosmetic alterations to increase aesthetic appeal. One functional improvement comes to the ignition keyhole, which now gets illuminated.

Optimization is reported done regarding the model’s NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) to make the drive quieter and smoother.

The C30 (formerly Voleex C30–GWM has recently dropped the Voleex marque) is one of the most popular sedans from China’s native automakers. 85,553 units of it were sold in the first eight months of this year.
