This model entered the market two years ago. Since that time, the SUV has been available with a non-alternative “turbo-six”.
The engine boasted a working volume of three liters and a power of 337 horsepower. This power unit is combined with 8 automatic transmissions from Aisin and a four-wheel drive system. Now the automaker has prepared for its large SUV two-liter 252-horsepower “turbocharger”, supplemented by a 48-volt starter generator.
A seven-speed “robot”was chosen as the transmission for it. The new front-wheel drive Hongqi HS7 45TD with a “Junior” engine received a price tag in 275 800 – 309 800 RMB (slightly more than 40 800 – 45 800 dollars). For comparison, the more powerful version of 50TD cost 349 800 – 459 800 yuan ($51,700 – $ 68,000). The interior of the new crossover, despite the lower price tag, received a natural wood finish. But when upholstery was used eco-leather and suede.

Also, the new product got a virtual “tidy”, a 10.1-inch Central screen and a “touchscreen” that is responsible for the “climate” in the car interior.
It is expected that the new, more affordable version will help Hongqi HS7 catch up with its competitors with logos of foreign brands.
