At the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show, SAIC-GM-Wuling officially introduced the all-new Wuling Xing Chen as its first global-market crossover for the popular Chinese brand. General Motors’ second joint venture in the country had only shown the Xing Chen’s exterior so far, putting its interior design on hold until now, which was just revealed in the last round of spy shots of Wuling’s new model in China.
The all-new Wuling Xing Chen was captured in a parking lot in the capital of the Asian country, alone and completely undisguised, allowing spy photographers to obtain the first images of the crossover’s interior. Notably, both the unit displayed at the auto show and the first real-world images showed the new Xing Chen with tinted windows that deliberately concealed the entire cabin.
However, SGMW was unable to keep it under wraps, and the interior design of the new Wuling Xing Chen was revealed before the automaker officially unveiled it. Although it follows the two-tone, beige and black color scheme seen in the Wuling Victory MPV, which is the brand’s first model to wear the Global Silver logo, the Xing Chen’s cabin is inspired by the brand’s latest design language.
The spy shots show that the all-new Wuling Xing Chen boasts a modern and minimalistic interior, with a horizontally stepped dashboard accentuating the feeling of space while improving forward visibility. The compact-size crossover will debut a new large and slim infotainment screen that stands out on the center stack, alongside a fully digital driver instrument panel and a new three-spoke steering wheel.
In addition, the Wuling Xing Chen’s seats are upholstered in beige leather, with a much more elaborate design than those in the rest of the brand’s models, with diamond-shaped patterns and contrast stitching that add a touch of elegance. For its part, the second row of the crossover looks spacious and comfortable, able to accommodate three occupants thanks to a wide bench, adjustable headrests and a good amount of headroom.
The all-new Wuling Xing Chen is expected to be officially launched in the Chinese market during the third quarter of the year, as the second member of the new family of more modern products seeking to expand the international reach of the brand. As such, these models were developed with the global market in mind and with higher manufacturing standards in order to elevate Wuling’s image.
