Auto-sales-statistics-China-Dongfeng_A9-sedanSales figures for the Dongfeng Aeolus A9 in China.

The Fengshen A9 (Aeolus is the English name for the Fengshen sub-brand) shares its platform with the Chinese Citroën C6, as Dongfeng-Peugeot Citroën is the Joint Venture which produces all PSA vehicles in China. Naturally, the A9 is positioned lower in the market than the C6 and carries a lower price tag to reflect Citroën’s more premium image compared to the Dongfeng brand. It has the same 204 hp 1.8-liter “THP” turbocharged engine and a very similar exterior design, although the C6 will have a distinguished front end and a much fancier interior. At 179.700 Yuan (€ 24.500,-), the A9 is by far the most expensive sedan in the Dongfeng line-up, but still cheaper than the upcoming C6, which starts at 189.800 Yuan. A DS9 version of the same car is expected as well.

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