The huge LS5 SUV is a good variant for those who search for solid crossover of Chinese production. The wheel and wheel disks of novelty are decorated by a traditional Golden Sunflower in the center (it is a logo that has been used on Hongki’s cars since 1960) and surrounded by drawings representing wind. The saloon is presented by a modest bench in the second row. You can’t find any place for bags in the third row because of folding seats located in the trunk. The front panel with two displays in the center is the same like in a L5 sedan.
