Chery V5 CrossEastar

Chery presented new model named CrossEastar powered by bio-diesel engine:




I assume, it's just a concept car for now, but what is it based on? Is this a station wagon of old Eastar or is this already new bodystyle of upcoming A6? Does anyone have some additional photos and info about the car?

Chery Eastar Cross 1.8L launched in Shenzhen.

Chery Auto said that its Eastar Cross 1.8L is launched today at the Shenzhen auto show. This car meets China's national IV emission standards, and its power is close to a 2.4L engine.

The new car model is driven by the powerful ACTECO 1.8L engine which generates 97kW of power and 170 N.M of torque and performs better than the Mitsubishi 4G64 engine used in the 2.4L model. Chery holds the intellectual property rights to the ACTECO 1.8L engine developed jointly by Chery Auto and the Austrian AVL group. This more powerful engine can help the car achieve energy efficiency as it has created the record of consuming only 5.04L fuel in 100 kilometers.

Chery Eastar Cross is an all-new leisure car developed on the upgraded second-generation Eastar platform. Its major features include a sedan's comfort and maneuverability as well as an MPV's roominess and multi purposes. The launch of the Eastar Cross 1.8L will boost the Eastar Cross brand's lineup and highlight its price/performance ratio.

BTW, here is a little older article about Malaysia-made Eastar:
http://paultan.org/2008/09/03/chery...assembled-24-liter-chery-eastar-7-seater-mpv/

Chery’s B240 MPV has been relaunched in Malaysia as a locally assembled car and it is now called the Chery Eastar. The locally assembled Chery Eastar MPVs will roll out of Oriental Assembler Sdn Bhd’s plant in Johor, but a new CKD plant will be up and running in Pekan, Pahang by the end of 2009. The Pekan plant will include an investment of over RM50 million in equipment and will begin assembly of up to 100,000 Chery vehicles a year, including 10 models such as hybrids, SUVs, MPVs and executive cars.

According to Chery Alado Sdn Bhd’s chairman Tan Sri Cam Soh Thiam Hong, more details on the plant will be announced in the next two months together with its joint venture partners which may include a GLC. “Malaysia is the largest passenger car market in ASEAN and also the important link for Chery to other ASEAN countries’ market. We currently have 7 other overseas factories in countries like Russia, Iran, Egypt and Argentina and are planning to accelerate more overseas factories in the coming 2 years,” said Chinese automaker Chery Automobile Co Ltd’s president Yin Tongyao.

Chery currently exports 120,000 vehicles yearly and plans to hit 400,000 vehicles by 2010. As it is, the Malaysian plant will export 30% of its Chery Eastar production to countries such as Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and Australia. Local sales of the MPV is expected to be between 120 to 200 units monthly.

Under the hood of the 7-seater Chery Eastar MPV is a 2.4 liter SOHC Mitsubishi long-stroke engine producing a rather sedate 127 horsepower at 5,500rpm and 198Nm of torque at 3,000rpm. This is quite a conservatively-tuned basic engine (SOHC, 9:1 compression) which does not produce much power for its displacement but should be relatively easy on maintenance. It is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting. The MPV measures 4662mm long, 1820mm wide and 1590mm tall with a long 2800mm wheelbase.

The new Chery Eastar is priced at RM79,888 for the standard version and RM86,888 for the high-spec version. The standard version includes LED rear lamps, side turn indicators on the wing mirrors, all-round disc brakes, a radio cassette player with 6 speakers, manual windows and 16 inch steel wheels while the premium version adds a CD player with MP3 support, steering wheel audio controls, ABS brakes, traction control, power windows for all four doors, dual SRS airbags for the front, and 16 inch alloy wheels. Further options include 18 inch alloy wheels and an NGV kit.

The high-spec version adds It comes with 1 year free service (for the first 1,000 units sold) and a 3+2 year warranty.

Eastar XT:
http://paultan.org/2013/06/21/chery-eastar-xt-variant-introduced-rm-94k/

Chery Automobile Malaysia has introduced another Eastar MPV variant, this one being known as the XT. Its arrival brings to three the number of seven-seater Eastar versions in the country, the others being the regular ES and upkitted ST, which was introduced a year ago.

No mechanical changes to the running gear – the Eastar continues with the 2.0 ACTECO unit, good for 134 hp at 5,750 rpm and 180 Nm at 4,400 rpm, mated to a four-speed auto transmission.

What’s new on the Eastar XT? Well, new design headlamps, for one, and there are interior upgrades such as leather seats, a six-speaker DVD player/navigation system and LED display screens for rear occupants, these being located behind the driver and passenger seat headrests. Oh, and there’s a reverse camera as well. Safety kit includes ABS, EBD and dual airbags.

The Eastar XT is priced at RM94,040, on-the-road with insurance, which makes it cheaper that the ST when that first arrived (RM96,888 when launched last year). Available exterior colours are Sunbeam Silver, Mystic Black, Brown Silver, Chili Red, Sapphire Silver and Snow White.

The Chery Reely brand was officially launched today by Chery, bringing the world yet another automotive brand.

Whilst Riich is Chery’s upmarket brand, Reely will be Chery’s MPV/Business brand that will see a range of MPV’s and other ‘business vehicles’ being launched under it over the next six months. The first vehicle to be launched by Reely is the Reely V5. You might recognise the Reely V5 as basically the old Chery V5 7 seater station wagon, but it has undergone some slight rhinoplasty and has also been given a nice new diesel engine.

The latest diesel engine from Chery, a 1.9 TDDI high compression diesel engine will find its way into the Reely V5 alongside 1.8, 2.0L gasoline engines with 5 speed manual and 4 speed automatic gearboxes being available for consumers.

The V5’s pricing is set rather low with the cheapest starting at 100,980rmb, rising to 140,980rmb for the top model.

Chery also revealed that their new Reely brand is actually an acronym rather than a random word they picked out of the dictionary and mangled up to be cool and down with the kids, Reely actually stands for Reliable, Economic, Leading, and Young, Chery do seem to be missing an E somewhere though.
