Spied – The posh sibling of the Wuling Hongguang (Chevrolet Enjoy) caught in China

Posted on: Mar 18, 2013 - 4:14pm IST

As GM India is making its final preparations for the launch of the Chevrolet Enjoy MPV, its donor model, the Wuling Hongguang is all set to get an upmarket sibling in China.

The yet to be named MPV was caught by the Chinese media while testing with a heavy camouflage. The basic shape of the car reminds us of the Hongguang but there are noticeable differences to the front and rear fascias.

To start with, the headlamps sports HID bulbs, the front grill is bigger, though we suspect that it could be different in the final production version. The front bumper is also completely new with a wide air intake.

The sheet metals on the side follow the Hongguang until the rear fender where the horizontal tail lamps are wrapped around. The Hongguang has a vertical tail lamp cluster and the rear fascia feels much more modern.

The interior of the test mule bears a completely new design and layout. The steering wheel is new and there is a provision in the dashboard which would integrate a touch screen infotainment system.

There is no further information about the premium MPV from Wuling which would sit above the Hongguang. However, India is not expected to get this MPV since it will be more expensive than the upcoming Enjoy.

    Looking forward to the release and especially the pricing adopted. It could turn out to be a pretty decent MPV for India sitting below Ertiga & Innova.
