The Chinese media has “spy” photos of Changan CX70, passing a road test. This is a new mid-size crossover with the landing formula 2 + 3 + 2. The length of Changan CX70 makes 4 680 mm, the wheelbase is 2780 mm, the width – 1800 mm, and the height – 1750 mm. The model will take place between CS35 and CS75 in the line-up of the Chinese car brand. The sales will start in the local market by the end of 2015.

It’s interesting that Changan and Ford Companies have a joint venture in China. Of course, the copycat has adopted some elements from the Ford Explorer 5 generation. The characteristic design of the C-pillar and window and the front part are borrowed from the American crossover. The salon is less similar. There is a large multi media display at the central console. Among the other design elements there are the sunroof, 17-inch disks and the rear view camera.

The Chinese novelty is equipped by 1.6-liter four cylinder petrol engine with the capacity 117 horsepower. Perhaps in the future the power unit range will be expanded. The debut of Changan CX70 will be held at the Guangzhou Motor Show in 2015. The price information is not available now.
