How very polite to say that driving the Eastar 6/ Chery A7 over here in Germany will be quite a rare and exclusive experience. You could probably also say that it´ll be disappointment, saleswise. No wonder, using the Ford Milans back and being a bit uninspired in it´s design after all. I also doubt that it will be touch a price league like BMW/MB/Audi or comparable. Even pricing it like an upscale Kia (Magentis, for example) would be quite a burden for this cars possible sucsess over here.MCV87 said:This car looks absolutely fantastic.
The question is how much this car will cost in Germany when it is on the market.
Probably almost as much as a Mercedes C-Class or BMW 3er.
For sure it is much better equipped but I think, that it will be very rare and exclusive in Europe.
Chery Automobile, a fast-growing Chinese car manufacturer announced the launch of two new sub-brands in China.
The two new brands are: Riich which is for high-end, luxury automobile and Rely which will market business cars.
At the launch ceremony the first Riich model was also shown. Called the G6 it is a 5-meter long sedan, which is powered by Chery's self-developed, EU4-compliant gasoline engines. There's a smaller, four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter unit, capable of 125 kW @ 5500 and a bigger, 3.0-liter V6 with 143 kW @ 5500 rpm.
Suspension is with double wishbones front and multi-link at the rar, with adjustable dampers. Bi-xenon headlights, LED taillights, a slew of airbags and a long list of standard features (TPMS, rear-view camera, ventilated disc brakes, electrically adjusted seats and mirrors etc.) indicate that Chery is serious in its intent on creating a worthy competitor to the likes of BMW and Audi.
Chery now has got four brands under its belt. In addition to Chery, Riich and Rely there's Karry which is being used for light commercial vehicles.
