Sales figures for the Dongfeng Fengshen AX5 in China.
Dongfeng likes to divide its model range into subbrands based on its different subsidies which all have their own distribution and dealer network, a very inefficient strategy. One of these subbrands is Fengshen, whose English name is Aeolus. You may have heard of the Aeolus A9, the domestic sibling of the Chinese market Citroën C6. Logically, Fengshen’s most popular models are its crossovers AX7 and AX3, and it has now filled the void between these two with the Fengshen AX5, even though the newcomer is shorter than the latter of the two existing models. The AX5 measures 4.501/1.806/1.650mm with a 2.630mm wheelbase, making it wider and higher than the AX3, which has a more station wagon-like appearance. The AX5 is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine with 140hp and 196Nm of torque which also optional on the AX3, and it is mated to a 5-speed manual or an optional 6-speed automatic Dual Clutch Transmission.
The Dongfeng Fengshen AX5 has a fresh and modern design with sharp creases and an almost European appearance, once more underscoring the improvement in the styling department the domestic Chinese automakers have made in recent times. This continues in the interior, which has a clean look with nice touches like the chrome details on the dashboard and a big touchscreen on top of the center console, just what the doctor ordered. Prices run from 89.700 (€ 12.200,- / US$13,000) to 128.700 (€ 17.500,- / US$18,700), on par with the GAC Trumpchi GS4 and Roewe RX5.
Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
