2018 SEM DX7 Is A Pininfarina Designed SUV For China

Meet “the first Chinese SUV with an Italian touch,” as Pininfarina describes the SEM DX7 unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show. Designed by the Italian styling powerhouse, the DX7 is an SUV built by Chinese carmaker South East Motor, also known as Soueast or SEM. The DX7 SUV is a different species from most Chinese-designed SUVs. “With 85 years of history, Pininfarina is the key partner for SEM enabling them to create a new strong brand identity through high-value aesthetic projects like the DX7. Working together with the SEM team we created a bold design language, which is central to communicate the uniqueness of a vehicle that stands out from the competition,” said Pininfarina’s CEO Silvio Pietro Angori. Pininfarina started collaborating with SEM in 2012, but their first major project is the DX7 SUV. Designed according to Chinese customers’ preferences, the DX7 features sculptural and muscular surfaces with wide convex areas. The sculpted shapes of the bonnet and bumper also underline the strength of the car, while the front grille and headlights are connected to emphasize its width. Inside, the DX7’s dashboard is splitted into two major elements which feature different colors and materials. The HMI area is integrating all the functions, monitors, and vents in a coherent form, while the instrument cluster is highlighted by the three-dimensional “binoculars” that emerge from the aluminum strip. The DX7’s dimensions rank it in the compact SUV segment. It’s 4,537mm long, 1900mm wide, and 1700mm tall, with a 2700mm wheelbase. Engine options include 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol units.

2018 Changan CS95 7-Seat SUV Is Ready For The Car Market

A seven-seat family SUV that could be part of an export drive to the UK by Chinese company Changan, the CS95 is the bigger sister to the crossover-sized CS55. Technically, the CS95 and CS55 are related only by being made by the same company – they use different chassis platforms, despite being launched within 12 months of each other. Getting under the Changan CS95’s skin The roomy CS95 went on sale in China in late 2016, based on an all-new monocoque platform designed and developed in-house by a team featuring European engineering talent based at Changan’s engineering centres in Chongqing, central China. There’s a more direct British link – the all-new Blue Core 233bhp 2.0-litre turbo direct-injection four-cylinder petrol engine that powers the CS95 was designed and developed in Birmingham at Changan’s UK engineering centre. And a styling studio in Italy’s car design capital, Turin, helped create the CS95’s wholesome, Land Rover-influenced styling. The transmission on our test car was a six-speed Aisin Warner automatic, driving all four wheels via the transversely mounted four-pot petrol. Suspension is front struts and a rear twist beam for front-drive variants and a multi-link rear for all-wheel drive – the latter built around BorgWarner components to shift drive rearwards via an in-line driveshaft. Steering is electrically assisted and a suite of electronic safety aids is either standard or on the options list. Automatic emergency braking, for example, is available as part of the intelligent cruise control package on the top-spec model being tested here – an indication that Chinese own-brand cars are catching up with the West. At 4.9 metres long and sitting on a 2.8m wheelbase, the CS95 is sized just about halfway between the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Discovery, but its price range is resolutely more affordable. In the home market, it starts from £20,780 – that’s Nissan Qashqai money – and the top-spec all-wheel-drive CS95 extends to just £28k, although UK pricing is a long way from being finalised. Chinese brands are also making progress in interior design quality in leaps and bounds. There are hard plastics and a few inelegant design details, but the overall ambience inside the CS95 is attractive. Highlights include a polished chrome trim, robust switchgear and a crystal-clear infotainment system, which can be displayed in English. It fits the bill as a comfy family hauler, with a well-planted cruise, good cabin refinement and a fair balance of body control and ride quality. At its best, the CS95 is a motorway hauler that moves its occupants in comfort and keeps noise levels supressed, bar wind noise from the side mirrors. A pair of hefty front and rear subframes no doubt help isolate noise paths from the front and rear suspension and, in China’s choking city traffic, the CS95 rides quietly. Changan’s engineers say they have tried hard to ensure braking and transmission refinement in stop/start traffic, and they have succeeded – the CS95 has easily modulated brakes, making smooth stops in traffic easy to achieve. On Changan’s own smoothly surfaced handling test track, the CS95 is also surprisingly agile and can be hustled through corners with reasonable speed, albeit accompanied by a fair degree of body roll, despite front and rear anti-roll bars. Changan’s British chassis engineers accept that cornering could be better-controlled by thicker anti-roll bars, but the deterioration in ride wouldn’t fit the CS95’s role as a comfortable family cruiser. China’s roads are very mixed in surface quality and frequently vary between undulations and potholes that demand rugged and compliant suspension. The British-designed 2.0-litre turbo delivers a smooth and cultured accelerative push, but the choice of gear ratios in the Aisin Warner six-speeder doesn’t match the engine as well as it could. We had no chance to measure fuel economy and official figures were not provided, but we were told a combined figure of 30mpg was typical. Acceleration off the line is strangely muted, the calibration seemingly holding back the power delivery until the speed moves through the 30mph mark. And the CS95 is a hefty lump to get up to speed, loading the scales to a two-tonne kerb weight. A Discovery Sport, for example, is featherweight in comparison, weighing around 200kg lighter. The chance may not come for a number of years yet, as Changan is eyeing up the UK market but won’t commit to a launch date. The company is most likely to wait until the next-generation model to further hone engineering and design to Western tastes. If a CS95 went on sale in the UK now, it would offer a competitive alternative to Korean and European rivals, albeit with its appeal focused on comfort and refinement rather than dynamic prowess.

2018 Soueast DX3 Flagship Interior and Exterior Overview

This is the new SouEast DX3, a new and sharp looking compact SUV for China. The DX3 is the production version of the SouEast DX Concept. It will debut later this week on the Chengdu Auto Show and launch on the Chinese car market in November. The interior, this is a test car so there are some wires hanging around. Touch screen is large and the air vents are huge. Center tunnel looks a tad outdated with a large gear lever and a mechanical handbrake. Price will start around 65.000 and end around 90.000 yuan. Power will come from a Mitsubishi-sourced 1.5 liter four-cylinder petrol engine (4A91) with 120hp, mated to a five-speed manual or a CVT, sending power to the front wheels. A 1.5 turbo with some 150 horses will be added to the lineup later. The closed D pillar with a ‘floating roof’ is totally hip among local Chinese car makers. They literally all have it, with mixed results for the looks of the car. The DX3 though looks neath enough. This is the test car again, missing most of its rear lights. Overall design is very nice but the exhaust pipe is ugly, just hanging around under the bumper without any proper finish.

The DX7 is a compact SUV built by Soueast Motor on basis of the R7 concept unveiled at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. The production model was launched at the 2014 Guangzhou Motor Show, where it was named “Bolang” in Chinese. With a 2700mm wheelbase, it is 4537mm long, 1900mm wide, and 1700mm tall. A turbo 1.5L or turbo 2.0L will be employed. The DX7 is designed by Pininfarina.
