Earlier this month, GM Authority reported that the interior design of the all-new Wuling Xing Chen was revealed for the first time in the latest round of spy photos on the model in China. Now, SAIC-GM-Wuling has just released the first official images of the Wuling Xing Chen’s interior, confirming that the compact crossover has the most modern and best-designed cabin in the brand’s history.
The Wuling Xing Chen debuts a new interior design language for Wuling’s most advanced models, which bear the brand’s latest Global Silver logo and were specifically designed to expand both the Chinese market positioning and international reach of Wuling. In fact, the new Xing Chen will be the most strategic model to achieve that goal as the popular Chinese brand’s first global crossover.
The first official photos of the Wuling Xing Chen’s interior confirm that the compact-sized crossover has a modern and minimalist two-tone cabin. The second General Motors joint venture in China says that the Xing Chen’s horizontal dash was configured with three well-marked levels – upper, middle and lower – where the different control elements are positioned neatly and ergonomically.
In addition to the new steering wheel and the horizontal dash layout, what stands out most at first glance from the interior of the all-new Wuling Xing Chen is a generous 10.25-inch center infotainment screen, which has an ultra-slim design and is semi-suspended in an elevated position. This display introduces a new infotainment system for Wuling and is paired with a fully digital instrument panel.
On a functional level, one of the competitive advantages and main attributes of the Wuling Xing Chen will be its spacious and comfortable cabin for five passengers and their luggage. SGMW claims that the interior was designed to maximize space, promising a comfortable ride for people of different heights in each of the five seats. For this, the second row has a generous bench and a flat floor.
The all-new Wuling Xing Chen will be officially launched in the next few days and will go on sale in China before the end of Q3 2021. The new crossover is the second production vehicle to be introduced for the new era of Wuling, after the Victory MPV, and has a highly strategic role for the future of the brand by being positioned in the segment with the highest sales volume of the global automotive industry.
