Chery’s Sporty Car Arrizo 5 GT Will List in China Soon


The compact sports sedan of Chinese vehicle brand has attracted much attention. From the earliest Lynk & Co 03 to today’s GAC Trumpchi Empow, many brands have launched cost-effective models.

For example, Chery also came up with the Arrizo 5 PLUS, which is also a model that is close to the people. However, in order to further demonstrate its personality, Chery recently launched a more youthful and sporty version based on this car.

The new car is given the name of Arrizo 5 GT. The models that can be called GT all have the characteristics of strong power and other sports. The new car is built on the basis of Arrizo 5 PLUS, but the overall style has been greatly changed, and it is sporty sense.

The blackened grille on the front face is similar to the spindle grille of Lexus, but the actual details are still very different.

Since the new car is based on the Arrizo 5 PLUS, the side shapes of the two are the same, including details such as rearview mirrors, waistline, window frames, and side skirts. However, the Arrizo 5 GT is equipped with 17-inch double five-spoke blackened wheels, matching 205/50 R17 Giti tires, and the brake calipers are of the opposite dual-piston structure, which is much stronger than just spraying a color.

The rear of the car has been replaced with a new style of bumper, and the exhaust layout with a total of four sides on both sides is very eye-catching. It would be better if there are exhaust noises, and there is an airflow diffuser in the middle. Other details of the tail are the same as the Arrizo 5 PLUS. The taillights are more fashionable and avant-garde when the taillights are lit, and the tail logo with the word GT is added.

As a model that focuses on young sports, in addition to the sharp appearance, it is also important to have a stylish interior with a sense of technology. Compared with the PLUS, the Arrizo 5 GT has a different design in details, and the overall changes are relatively large.

The center console adopts the popular dual-screen, the most eye-catching, the new-style three-spoke steering wheel looks more dynamic, and the car logo has also been changed to English spelling. The electronic gear lever has been replaced with a yacht-style push rod, the air-conditioning vents have been rearranged, and perhaps the seats will use a more sporty shape.

In terms of power, the new car will be powered by Chery’s Kunpeng 1.6T engine, referring to Tiggo 8, with a maximum power of 197 horsepower and a maximum torque of 290 Nm. The transmission system is expected to be matched with a 7-speed wet dual-clutch gearbox. Referring to the 0-100km/h acceleration time of Hyundai Festa 1.6T 190Ps, it is 6.78 seconds. We believe the new car’s performance will be better, which is already faster than Honda Civic and Trumpchi Empow.

The price of Arrizo 5 PLUS is 69,900-99,900 yuan, while Arrizo 5 GT is expected to be 10,000-20,000 yuan higher after adding more rich elements, that is, 90,000 – 120,000 yuan, which is very close to the price of its competitor Trumpchi Empow.
