The Chinese car manufacturer Chery, interested in expanding its customer base, has set up its subsidiary CheryExeed. It specializes in the production of premium SUVs and crossovers. The lineup of the company includes several interesting cars, the flagship of which is Chery Exid VX 2022, which can be bought on the territory of the Middle Kingdom in five trim levels at a price of 1,899,000 - 2,570,000 rubles for Starbucks and Star modifications, respectively. This car can be called a competitor for the Toyota Highlander, Mazda CX-9, Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe.
Crossover Cherie Exid VX 2022 is currently sold in China in a new body. This model can impress its potential buyer not only with rich configurations, but also with attractive prices. Also, the cross attracts attention with its spectacular appearance, which can be estimated from the photo in the article. However, despite such obvious advantages, first of all it is worth considering the main technical characteristics of the car, which, by the way, are also impressive.
In the Chinese market, the car is sold in several modifications with two power units to choose from. In this case, we are talking about reliable and unpretentious gasoline turbocharger units with a volume of:
- 1, 6 liters with a return of 145 horsepower, as well as 290 N * m of torque;
- 2.0 liter with 187 horsepower and 390 Nm of torque.
Only a 7-speed robotic gearbox is used as a transmission. The crossover is available for sale with a choice of front or all-wheel drive. The car boasts the following dimensions:

The Chinese crossover is sold in five and seven-seat variants with a capacious trunk. The fuel tank of the car holds 50 liters of fuel, which provides a good range, considering the average consumption of about 8 liters in the combined cycle. AI-92 gasoline is used as fuel. It is also worth noting the good dynamics of the cross and an impressive top speed of 180-200 km / h.

When choosing a car, many potential buyers pay close attention to such a point as vehicle safety. In this regard, the Chinese premium crossover CheryExeed VX boasts not only rich equipment and a variety of systems, but also a well-developed body, which is designed for serious accidents and can fully protect the driver and passengers as a result of an accident. We must pay tribute that, according to the results of the tests carried out according to the Asian system, this SUV scored high rates and earned a five-star rating.
Handling and off-road performance
The Chinese car CheryExeed VX, in general, feels great both on paved roads and off-road. Of course, we are not talking about a frame SUV. However, the car quite confidently copes with obstacles in its path. This applies to the all-wheel drive versions of the Chinese. Front-wheel drive models are focused on a comfortable ride in urban environments and on highways. Here, the car owner will be able to fully enjoy the comfort and equipment of the vehicle, which has numerous electronic assistants, which allows the driver to relax while driving.
Advantages and disadvantages
In order to make it easier for motorists to make a decision to buy this crossover, it is worth highlighting its main advantages, which include the following:
- the use of more affordable AI-92 gasoline;
- compliance with the requirements of the Euro-6 standard;
- rich technical equipment;
- ultra-modern appearance;
- luxurious interior design;
- impressive dynamics and handling;
- good off-road performance.
It is also impossible to ignore some obvious shortcomings when reviewing a car. In particular, one can single out not the most impressive motors for a premium car.
The indisputable advantage of the Chinese is its luxurious appearance, which attracts attention when driving in traffic. The crossover looks stylish, impressive and brutal, and besides, it is distinguished by individuality. Of course, there is some similarity with the Japanese premium SUV Toyota Land Cruiser 200, but it is minimal. As for the interior, it is completely designed in such a way as to fully meet the expectations of the car of the future. There are a lot of high-tech elements inside. In addition, the most successful location of the key management components can be identified.
The spacious seven-seater CheryExeed VX crossover is still considered a novelty in the automotive market. This car was announced in the Middle Kingdom several years ago, and its free sales started in 2020. Now the Chinese in the first generation is available only on the home market, but the manufacturer does not plan to limit itself to this. At the moment, it is known that this car will soon be presented in Russia, but there is no exact information about when exactly this will happen. It is possible that the first production variants will go on sale in 2022.
CheryExeed VX has plenty of rivals, but among the general mass I would like to highlight the most interesting options, namely:
- Kia Sorento;
- Hyundai Santa Fe;
- Toyota Highlander;
- Mazda CX-9.
