Auto-sales-statistics-China-Chery_Cowin_V3-MPVSales figures for the Chery Cowin V3 MPV in China.

The Cowin V3 has a similar grille design with new Cowin logo as the Cowin X3 SUV, which has been launched simultaneously. It is based on the Chery Karry K60, which was launched in Q3 of 2016 and which focuses more on the commercial MPV market. The V3 is marketed as a crossover and does have more of a two-box design than most MPVs in this class, but we’re still not falling for it. This is an obvious rival to cars like the Dongfeng Fengguang 330 and China’s best selling vehicle the Wuling Hongguang. It offers seven seats in a three-row configuration and has a similar 10.1 inch infotainment screen in the center console at its SUV sibling Cowin X3. The screen between the dials is a bit smaller at 4.2 inch. Despite having to haul more passengers than the X3, the Cowin V3 offers less power from older (thus cheaper) technology, as power comes from a 1,5-liter four-cylinder engine, pumping out 109hp, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. Exterior dimensions: 4.606/1.790/1.750mm, with a 2.765mm wheelbase. Prices start below those of its SUV sibling, at 62.800 Yuan (€ 8.500,- / US$9,500).

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