Chinese brand Venucia is preparing to introduce a new “SUV” — the third in its model lineup.

In particular, the SUV will see a vertical led daytime running lights. No specifications, nor even the name “SUV” is not yet disclosed. We only know that the cross will enter the market in the fourth quarter of this year.
Recall that the Venucia – a joint project of Nissan and Dongfeng, the brand created in 2010 specifically for China. At first this brand produced turned the old “Nissan”, and later developed an independent model in which basis all lies the “trolley” from “Japanese” of previous generations.
Today in the lineup Venucia two crossover kupeobrazny T70 and T90, are both based on the platform of Nissan Qashqai of the first generation with the rear memorycache. Likely, the new SUV is also built on the platform of the Japanese company, but exactly what that data yet.
The “seventies” in two versions – standard and “off-road”, the latter characterized by the presence of unpainted body kit. The length of a regular Venucia T70 is 4 630 mm width 1 845 mm, “off road” option, the figures are 4 and 1 614 786 mm, respectively. The height and wheelbase are the same – 1 653 2 630 mm. Both versions are available with “aspirated” 2.0 (144 HP, 198 Nm) and “turboservice” 1.4 (140 HP, 196 Nm), the first engine combined with the CVT, the second works in tandem with the “mechanics”. For “just” T70 has “aspirated” 1.6 (121 horsepower, 154 Nm, 5МКП).

This “SUV” is also equipped with engines 1.4 T and 2.0, transmission the same as that of the “seventies”. Both crossover Venucia offered only with front-wheel drive, so that the future SUV will certainly be a version of 4×2 – wheel drive models in China, demand not.
Price T70 – 89 from 800 yuan (us$13 600). Kupeobrazny T90 will cost at least 109 800 yuan ($16 600). “The seventies” at odds better in 2017 in China was implemented 54 153 cars and 46 of 221 item sold, T90.
