China – (Chevy Enjoy facelift) Wuling Hong Guang S facelift launched

Posted on: Aug 10, 2013 - 5:59pm IST

After numerous spy shots and extensive testing, the facelifted Wuling Hong Guang S has been launched in China. The Hong Guang is better known to us as the Chevrolet Enjoy.

The Wuling Hong Guang is made in China thanks to the industrial partnership that exists between General Motors, SAIC and Wuling motors. Despite the strange name, the Hong Guang finished 2012 as one of China’s most bought automobiles.

For China, the Hong Guang was powered by a 1.2-liter petrol engine producing 86bhp or a 1.4-liter producing 102bhp (which is what the Enjoy gets in India). Now, a more powerful 1.5-liter 112bhp engine has also been included in the lineup. Meanwhile the 1.4-liter engine seems to have been discontinued.

Piano black surround for the touchscreen multimedia system is one of the key points of the completely redesigned dashboard.

Cosmetically, the facelift carries a new grille with new foglamps and bumpers. A set of new taillights and redesigned alloy wheels complete the exterior package.

    Thanks to GM India that they have admitted the emission issue to Indian government and have great guts to recall the vehicles. They even sacked all guilty officials for the deviation. I am sure they are an honest automobile manufacturer across world and driven by ethics.
    There are many hiding under wraps. The entire automobile industry is under scan that we as a customer have right to fair products or not? Certificates are papers or genuine practice ;don’t know.

    Chinese designed vehicle, launched by GM only in India and China…this combination is a big NO NO…It will same as Tavera..where GM guys faked the ARAI tests and launch the unsafe vehicles in India..and had big profit margin …Learning from GM”s Tavera Fiasco, I will never buy GM’s Asia specific vehicles…

      Probably this Chinese van is not as good as the Japanese or European one, but it’s sure better than TATA’s. So, I’m sure it’ll have market in India…

    One question to GM – Why is the old model sold in India ? Say, they are “testing” our market to clear their stock….eh!

    The facelift makes the current model (in India) appear spartan (which It is already). Kudos to GM for not bringing this model to India, other manufacturers can “Enjoy” as this wont cause any threat to them.

    This is not merely a facelift. Externally, this one sports panel / sheet metal changes from the regular model, most notably aft of the C-pillar evident by different rearmost (third) side windows and tail light contours, and is longer by 95 mm (and taller by 20). So, probably a different version, if one may say so. It will coexist with the regular model, which explains the “S”.

    Similarly, the Rong Guang microvan will get a more modern-looking “S” companion soon.
