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

anything new regarding this sedan?
Re: Great Wall sedan

hi mico, does it look like the sedan in the pictures above? thanks!
Re: Great Wall sedan

hi daewoo-chev, where'd you get the measurements on the car?
Re: Great Wall sedan

anything new about this sedan? is it really the size of a corolla? if so, how can the dashboard of the phenom/i7 fit into this car, which is supposed to be smaller?
Re: Great Wall sedan

i dont know if it's the same... i think the code is the same CH041, plus the grill, but the interior is quite different. maybe they used the interior for the phenom temporarily for the mock-up
Re: Great Wall sedan

so.... it's not the size of a belta/vios/yaris, and not the size of a corolla either... so it's not "inspired" by other cars? :D

corolla is 4,540 x 1,760 x 1,465, with wheelbase of 2,600 mm

this is 4454 x 1740 x 1489; wheelbase 2608.

so what car will this model compete with?
Re: Great Wall sedan

nice.... nice.... nice.... go GWM! the last one, in my opinion, kinda combines elements from BMW and mercedes benz... BWM 6-series butt, MB E-class tail lights, BMW 3-series headlights...

although, it's a bit too early to tell since these pics are small and low res...

but these are nice pictures nonetheless... thanks analyst!
Re: Great Wall sedan

It seems like they'll have quite a few sedan concepts in the Autoshow:

whatever happened to the CHB011 concept? it would have been a good looking car, albeit a little like a bmw
although the changes are minor, the the 2012 C30 looks better and more mature :D

also, less bright colors in the dash means less distraction for the driver :D

by the way, is there a new transmission supplier? Ricardo perhaps? the shifter looks different.
Headlights now have amber corner lights. Most of the changes that I've noticed are with the interior
