FAW Flastship Sedan Hongqi H9 Officially Launched in Chinese market


For a long time, Chinese vehicle brands are best at producing low-end cars, because the overall level of car manufacturing is so so, and they can only rely on low prices to attract consumers. It is precisely because of this advantage that China-made cars have been very popular in recent years, but this has not been the case. The people also hope that a Chinese luxury car will appear. Later, the Hongqi L5 appeared, which was comparable to Maybach. The Hongqi H9 is even more known as the “Chinese Rolls-Royce”. After it was unveiled at the auto show, it made people dream of it.

Hongqi H9 is the flagship model from FAW, a C+ class luxury flagship sedan, it was finally officially launched today, the 2020 Hongqi H9 is offered by a total of 5 models, and the price range is 309,800-539,800 yuan (~US$44,828 – US$78,109).

The exterior design of Hongqi H9 utilizes the latest design language. From the front, it is indeed similar to Rolls-Royce. After all, its designers have also worked for Jaguar and Rolls-Royce, and have participated in the design of models. After changing the style, we feel that the Hongqi H9 is indeed more gorgeous than ordinary cars, and the dual-color body is particularly fashionable. The slip-back roof, coupled with the large-size aluminum alloy wheels, makes the car feel sporty.
