Maiwei (迈威) is the name of the new "unidentified" SUV/crossover whose pictures have appeared on the web recently.

My previous posts from the "Lifan concepts for Shanghai autoshow 2015" thread:
An unidentified new Lifan SUV. On some forum threads, people are calling it X70, but the X70 is a completely different vehicle.
There are some news reports mentioning a future X55, and fewer also talking of an X66, e.g. this old article:

Re: Lifan Maiwei (new SUV)

I just can imagine advertising campaign for this, sung by Frank Sinatra:
"And more, much more than this
I did it my way"

Sorry, I just couldnt resist.:)

Sinatra did of course advertise the 1980s Chrysler Imperial coupe which of course went really well......not.

Lifan MyWay will start sales in Argentina on September 15.

The Lifan MyWay bookings, test drive and pre-sale will began in Argentina on September 15, at AR$ 414K for the only trim level.
But our Maiwei is not the only player on the 7 seater game, there's the Chevy Spin.
So we compare:
Chevrolet Spin LTZ 7-seater AT 2017, 1.8, AR$ 419.000

Lifan MyWay 1.8 MT, AR$ 414.000

So we have AR$ 420.000 on the pocket, what we buy?
Spin pros:
-Automatic gearbox
Spin contras:
-Outdated platform, design and engine
-Uncomfortable third row seats (yea, that's true, ask on Google)
-No ESP
MyWay pros:
-New design
-Comfortable for all the passengers
-Reliable engine
-High quality plastics
-Economic price tag for a new, safe and beautiful car.
Contras:
-They're a few dealers of Lifan.
-People here bash everything Chinese (until they see a Hongqi!!!)
-Can we say that it doesn't have AT as an option?
Choice is yours... I'll go to the MyWay.

Re: Lifan Maiwei (new SUV)

With the title of #BienDeFamilia, Lifan presented MyWay advertisements on TV and in YouTube (sometimes the ad appears on Televisión Pública Argentina, most frequently at 11 am. Curiously appears a Chery New QQ advertisement [internal battle?]).

NOTE: TV advertisement is shorter (duration of 21 seconds, while the original one has a duration of 1 minute and 27 seconds). If it's possible I'll record the TV ad.
