Omoda C5 set to be first UK model from Chinese car maker Chery.
Another new name will be coming to UK showrooms in the early part of 2024 when the Omoda C5 will spearhead a range of new models coming from Chinese car maker Chery.
Although the Omoda name won’t be familiar to UK buyers, the name Chery may well ring bells – it has had a joint venture in China with Jaguar Land Rover since 2012.
And in spite of only being founded in 1997, Chery is already the biggest exporter of cars in China, with over 450,000 cars going to Russia, Asia and South America, amongst other countries.
The Omoda C5 is a mid-size SUV set to rival the likes of the Nissan Qashqai when it arrives next year.
It makes use of Chery’s own T1X platform and will initially be powered by a 1.6-litre TGDI petrol engine offering 194bhp and 290Nm with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Hybrid and fully electric versions are expected soon after.
