What is happening at Chang’an Auto? It seems to be one of the few Chinese auto companies that seems to be producing auto designs that are capable of making car designs that will fit with Western and Eastern consumer tastes. Have a look over the new, as of yet unnamed, A301 hatchback below.
Sure it has a hint of an enlargened Chevrolet Spark about it, especially as both came in a signature green color for the Chinese market but it also looks very unique, a mixture of Opel Adam and Citroen DS styling which overall gives it a cool funk. Technology levels seem to be overly high, from these spy shots we can see the yellow model is boasting a full glass roof which if we’re not mistaken is possibly a first for a Chinese company.
Under the hood we are expecting 1.2 and 1.5 engines with the possibility of a 1.5T engine making its way in there. This cool little chariot might be on show in Guangzhou but don’t hold your breath just yet, it might be shelved in favor of a Beijing Auto Show launch in April 2014.
