Spy photographers recently captured a mysterious Chevrolet crossover testing in China, but with a little inferencing, it looks like the FNR-X is headed to production.
The spy shots show a heavily camouflaged vehicle, but its similarities to the FNR-X concept are most apparent at the rear. The prototype wears similar creases to the concept car, which made its debut last April at the Shanghai Auto Show. From the various exterior bits shown, it does look like the car is quite far along in development.
The same can be said for the interior. The lone photo of the cockpit reveals a very different design than many current Chevrolets. A massive touchscreen display sits front and center in the interior’s stack with other buttons and controls below it. The gear selector is also quite different from anything we’ve seen before, too. One last observation: the gauge cluster appears fully digital.
The car could be a China-only product, but we’d love to see a production FNR-X replace the frumpy-at-best Trax. The small crossover segment is one that thrives on funky design—just look at the Toyota CH-R, Hyundai Kona, and more. This could be Chevy’s big splash.
