The Chinese are still more willing to believe in foreign auto brands such as Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, etc. SWM was once a motorcycle brand in Italy, in 2014, Chinese private enterprise SHINERAY(Chinese say “Xinyuan”) Holdings went to Italy to acquire the SWM brand and established a car design center in Milan, Italy. Not to mention the SWM car, even if it is SWM’s off-road motorcycle, few people have seen it in China. In the case of such a so-called European famous brand, there is no mass base in China. Anyway, Although SWM has European Italian origin, SWM has become a Chinese auto brand.
SWM Motors started passenger car market with SUV model such as X7, X3, G01, A few days ago, we obtained a set of spy photos of the new X7. The new X7 still uses the similar appearance and interior design of the current model. The power is still equipped with a 1.5T engine, but the 6-speed manual transmission is replaced. The new X7 will be officially launched in the fall of 2019.
In 2017, SWM Motors hired former BMW Quality Director Franz Görman as the chief quality consultant for SWM Motors to enhance the quality system. At the end of 2017, SWM Motors introduced the Ex chief designer of Toyota Europe and the chief designer of Audi, Kovos Sotirios, as the design director of SWM European Design Center, responsible for the related work of modeling design.
But it seems nothing has changed on the new X7
In terms of appearance, the new X7 is still maintained in the design of current model. The stable and sleek shape is decorated with some chrome-plated decorative pieces, the bottom of the car is also equipped with black plastic scratch-resistant plates. In terms of body size, the length, width and height current model is 471018551770mm, wheelbase is 2750mm
In terms of interior, the new X7 also maintains the current model design, because it is an entry-level model, it is not equipped with a vertical center-controlled screen, but a smaller central control system.
