Brilliance are doing some amazing things in China recently, their FRV for example had an order book of over 5000 cars per month at one point. Brilliance now have two new models in the works to boost their FRV line up, the first one of which is this fantastic Crossover:
The Brilliance FRV in standard form is a fantastic car, but the FRV Crossover is an amazing improvement. As for the engine, the FRV Crossover will be packing a
1.5l 1.6l Mitsubishi model, the same as the standard non crossover 1.6l.
The compact Crossover market was originally opened by the Suzuki SX4, but the quick additions of the VW Polo Cross, and Livina Crossover has seen the market segment explode with demand from consumers, and also a greater choice of cars especially from Chinese manufacturers.
The FRV Crossovers initial success may be short lived, both Chery and Geely both plan to launch crossovers this year, Chery will be launching the Faira Crossover and Geely will be bringing the Panda in crossover form to the table.
Edit: Its also come to light that Brilliance will be adding a 1.5l option to the line up as well as the 1.3l, and 1.6l offerings.
