Chang’an brings CS35 SUV to Beijing

Determined to increase the sales of their self-branded cars, Chang’an brought us the crisp Eado, designed by Changan’s team in Chongqing. The CS35 on the other hand was penned by the automaker’s Shanghai team and proves to be no slouch either.

The crossover’s dimensions are 4160 × 1810 × 1670mm (L × W × H), and a 2560mm wheelbase. That’s relatively small: it’s about 155mm shorter than the Nissan Qashqai. But on the inside it’s actually pretty roomy.

The CS35 had 215/50 R17 tires in Beijing. Hopefully the 17 inch wheels will stay in the production version. No more tiny wheels in big cars, please.

The interior is also a pleasant surprise, showing good workmanship and materials quality. This interior is easily better than all of Changan’s current offerings.

On the equipment side though, it’s a bit lacking. The multifunction steering wheel, and USB and auxiliary inputs are becoming more of a standard; although a sunroof is available.

Powering this urban SUV is a 1.6L “BlueCore” engine, capable of 160 horsepower. This will be mated with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. An 1.5 turbocharged engine is also on the horizon.

All in all, the CS35 is a commendable effort from Chang’an. It’s expected to hit the market soon, priced at around 90,000 RMB (about 14,300 USD).

    Nice job. What are the interior plastics like? It’s hard to tell from the photos.

    Acura called, they want their logo back. (even though it’s upside down)

    Other than that, that’s a nice looking compact SUV.

    Acura should call back and ask them really nicely if they can borrow their designers. This looks better than anything Acura have in their line up right now.
