Arrizo GX Champion Edition adds the red embellishment to highlights the sporty and younger position of the car. It is powered by a power combination of 1.5L+CVT from the Arrizo 5 Pro but not the 1.5T from Arrizo GX, so Arrizo GX Champion Edition is actually positioned below Arrizo GX.
In terms of appearance, the overall design of Arrizo GX Champion Edition is based on the Arrizo GX. The biggest feature of the Champion Edition is the addition of red and gray two-tone body color. The red decorative strips are mainly reflected in the hood, around the daytime running lights, front and rear bumpers, etc., while the taillights are also blackened, further enhancing the sporty visual effect.

In terms of interior, the overall design is basically the same as the Arrizo GX, but the Champion Edition adds a black and red interior color scheme. Red stitching has also been added to the seats, which enhance the sporty feeling. In addition, the Champion Edition comes standard with an 8-inch LCD touch screen and a multi-function leather steering wheel.
Unfortunately, as an “sports” car, the Champion Edition doesn’t use the 1.5T eigne that is powered on Arrizo GX, instead, it is powered by a 1.5L aspirated engine, the 1.5L engine generates 85kW (114hp) and peak torque of 143N.m, matching a CVT geargox.
