Chang’an Eado Turbo Airs Itself
Published February 20, 2013
The Changan Eado sedan was aired in Frankfurt last year ahead of the Beijing Auto Show last year, now the company is prepping its handsome hatch version which carries the same naturally aspirated engine and a range topping 1.5T unit.
The hatch variant measures in at (LxWxH) 4425/1815/1485mm and is 195mm shorter than the sedan version, 15inch and 16inch wheels are available on the model range. The 1.6L naturally aspirated engine is nothing to write home about, but the range topping 1.5T is good for 165bhp and has a max torque of 250Nm, more than enough to hold its own. Shanghai Auto Show will be the host to the Eado Hatch launch with sales beginning soon after, pricing has not yet been announced but a guess of around 120,000 to 140,000RMB for the turbo model being quite conservative.
