The new 4-door Chery Arrizo GX sedan goes on sales this year. The model will supposedly be offered with one turbo engine.
Chery introduced the Arrizo GX at the Beijing Motor Show in April 2018. The production car was brought to the show with locked doors, so the salon was not seen to the public.
And only now the brand has distributed official images of the model’s interior, which looks restrained: no bright inserts, the front panel is gray leathered.
The car got a multimedia system with a large touchscreen, there is another touch panel under it with two ‘washers’ for climate control. The devices are analog, the third screen is put between them.
The Chery Arrizo GX is built on the M1X platform developed by the Chinese company together with Jaguar Land Rover. The front part of the model is made in the style of the Chery Tiggo 8 crossover.
The expected dimensions are 4,700 x 1,825 x 1,480 mm and 2,670 mm of wheelbase. So, the Arrizo GX is longer than the Chery Arrizo 7 (4,652 mm), although the latter has bigger distance between axes (2,700 mm).
The company has not revealed the motor yet. It is likely to be a petrol turbo 4-cylinder 1.5-liter unit known on other Chery models. In particular, there is such an engine in the range of the Arrizo 5 (its Sport version) and Arrizo 7 sedans. The motor’s output is 147 hp (210 Nm), it is mated with a 5-speed manual gearbox or CVT. The flagship Arrizo 7 also has got a 152-hp version of this engine
The Chery Arrizo GX can become the most expensive model in the sedan line-up of the brand. For now the Arrizo 7 is the brand’s flagship. The GX will be sold only in China. The company has not announced yet if it’ll be marketed in other counties.
