    Wuling Hong Guang X SUV Teased

    Carscoops




    Back in April this year, Chinese media reported that the Wuling brand had plans to go global, with three models to fuel its expansion.


    According to slides from an internal presentation that leaked online, one of the models will be an SUV presented under the Ursa name at the time. Now, the brand owned by the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture has revealed official teaser images of the concept version of the SUV, which will be known as the Hong Guang X.

    Comparing the teaser images with those from the leaked presentation makes it pretty clear that we’re talking about the same vehicle. Why the different names, then? Well, Wuling will probably name the SUV Ursa in export markets, with the Hong Guang X nameplate reserved for the domestic market.

    Interesting that we keep hearing that the Chinese like understated vehicles. I can think of a lot of adjectives** to describe this, but understated isn't one of them.

    **ugly, amateurish, weird

    Funny, but.........Let me compose myself. . . . . . . . . . . . . That was the first thing I thought upon looking at it. This thing is an absolute styling train wreck. It is anything but understated and elegant.

    one part I like it* and the other I want to see the adults redraw it into a production vehicle and it might be OK
    * the basic shape I like the details I do not *

    have a solid Disco / LR3 vibe to it

    Wonder what the red color is called "Comrade Red"?
