Chery Riich G5 launched!
Published December 23, 2009
Cherys Riich G5 is the top of the line flagship model from Chery, and is Cherys attempt at taking the fight to the Japanese controlled mid size sedan segment.
The first model to come down the line is carrying Cherys home built 2.0T engine. The G5 measures an impressive (LxWxH) 4717/1794/1473 and has a wheel base of 2700mm. Chery is reportedly aiming this car squarely at the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata with a high class product, but undermining them in price as the above mentioned cars are in the 200,000rmb and rising price segment.
The 2.0T engine from Cherys ATECO line up is no slouch, it is capable of producing 125kw/170bhp, and 235Nm of torque at 1900rpm. This is Cherys first turbo engine to make it to production, and it appears to be getting off to a good start judging by the statistics.
Pricing is from 142,800rmb for the 2.0T 6 speed manual, 156,800rmb for the 6 speed manual elite model, and the luxury 5 speed auto will come in at 179.800rmb.
