In December 2017 in China, the presentation of the seven-seat crossover Changan X70A took place. In terms of exterior design, the new model was in many respects similar to the Land Rover Discovery of the previous (fourth) generation.
The latter is reminiscent of a radiator grille, a side-glazing line, characteristic punches on the sides, and a roof with a step. As for the Changan X70A, on the second row there are two separate chairs, and on the gallery – a single three-seater sofa.
The 10.0-inch screen of the multimedia system flaunts on the center console of the SUV, and cupholders are made on the sides of the front panel. The basis for the new Changan X70A 2018 lay the rear-wheel-drive platform from commercial long-distance wagons. The crossover has a bearing body and a spring suspension.
The overall length of the car is 4 620 mm, while its wheelbase is 2,750 mm. In height and width, the car reaches 1,770 and 1,820 mm, respectively. The ground clearance is declared at a level of 180 millimeters. The volume of the trunk does not open, but the cargo hold is small, with no hooks or loops inside.
The Changan X70A in the new body is powered by a 1.5-liter atmospheric engine with a power output of 107 hp, which is paired with a 5-pivot mechanism that transmits traction to the rear axle wheels. The equipment list includes a rear-view camera, an engine start button, an air conditioner, a parking sensor and a parking camera in the right mirror, the lens of which is aimed at the front wheel, which allows you to put the car close to the curbs.
In the Middle Kingdom, sales of Changan X70A will start in January 2018 at a price of $ 13,000. The withdrawal of the model to the markets of other countries has not yet been planned.
