Auto-sales-statistics-China-Changan_Linmax-MPVSales figures for the Changan Linmax in China.

The Chinese name of the Linmax is Changan Lingxuan. It’s a cheap domestic 7-seat MPV as there are dozens available in China. Unfortunately for the Linmax, it’s a bit late to the party and the segment that was still booming in 2016 has turned to decline in 2017. Power will come from the familiar naturally aspirated 1,6-liter four-cylinder with 125hp/160Nm that you can also find in the Changan CS35 among others. The gearbox is either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic. Dimensions are 4.730/1.795/1.730mm with a 2.760mm wheelbase. Prices run from 67.900 yuan to 80.900 (€ 8.800,-/US$9,900 to € 10.500,-/US$11,750). There’s a whole bunch of rivals out there in various degrees of succes, among others the Chery Cowin V3, Huansu H3 and Baojun 730.

Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
