The Dongfeng Fengguang 580 is an attractively priced C-SUV for China
Dongfeng has launched pre-orders for a new compact crossover SUV, the Fengguang 580. The car is rather large for its class, but manages to cost between $15,000 and $20,000 USD (96,000 – 130,000 CNY).
The length amounts to 4,720 mm (184.4 in), the width to 1,865 mm (72.9 in), the height to 1,710 mm (66.8 in) and the wheelbase to 2,785 mm (108.8 in). The interior offers three rows of seats with the second row represented by two individual high-comfort seats – quite an uncommon feature in this price segment. Specifically, the seats are 8-way adjustable, heated and ventilated with headrests that can transform into cozy pillows for those wishing to sleep. The third row also has only two seats.
The exterior and the interior are both executed in a way that feels modern and not overdone. The front panel contains a 12.3-inch touchscreen display and a 7-inch digital dashboard, while hardware controls are kept down to a minimum. The gear lever is a joystick.
A 1.5-liter turbocharged engine under the hood drives a six-speed automatic transmission with 184 PS (181 hp / 135 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque. Drive type is unknown, but Dongfeng points out that the car burns through 7 liters of gasoline per 100 km (33.6 MPG) in mixed cycle.
