The best-selling crossover Changan has become more powerful, the design has changed slightly

Changan CS75 SUV has undergone a local update in China.

Changan has upgraded its bestseller, the CS75 crossover (known in Russia under the name CS75FL). The design changes are not significant — the CS75 with the Blue Core package received a new front bumper and a radiator grille with an enlarged air intake, the shape of the exterior mirrors and fog lamps changed, and bright orange inserts around the perimeter and other rims with a diameter from 17 to 19 inches complete the image.

The body has not changed, but due to the different body kit CS75 Blue Core is one centimeter longer than the «seventy-fifth» for Russia. It is curious that the height of the novelty is also greater by the same centimeter, and the Chinese press service of Changan does not explain this fact — perhaps it is only in the increased tire profile. Formally, the Blue Core is just a package, but the Chinese auto giants like to disguise the restyling as a special version, and in the future, all Changan CS75 will probably receive similar external changes.

The main technical innovation is the emergence of a new 1.5-liter gasoline turbo engine with direct fuel injection. The unit went to Changan CS75 from

The interior did not change — the Changan CS75 still has a virtual dashboard with a 7-inch screen, an infotainment complex with a 10.25-inch keystone touchscreen, voice assistant and online services, and among the options — a panoramic roof, circular cameras review and keyless access. In fact, for three and a half years in the Changan CS75 cabin, only the finishing materials and the transmission selector have changed.

In the Celestial Empire, sales of the updated Changan CS75 Blue Core are planned to begin before the end of September, and prices are unlikely to increase significantly from the current range from 103,900 to 121,900 yuan (from 1.17 to 1.37 million rubles). Export deliveries are in question. For comparison, in Russia, you cannot buy a basic front-wheel drive Changan CS75FL without 1.83 million rubles, although a crossover with a 150-horsepower (220 Nm) turbocharged 1.8 engine and a 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission is available for this money. And by paying 2.11 million rubles, you can buy the all-wheel drive CS75FL with a more high-torque (245 Nm) version of the same engine and in the maximum configuration Luxe.
