Handling and off-road performance
Since we are talking about a front-wheel drive compact SUV, albeit with an impressive ground clearance, you should not consider this car as a universal vehicle. The off-road characteristics of the "Chinese" are no better than those of the Russian cross-hatch Lada X-Ray.

The design of the car was thought out to the smallest detail, which, in principle, is characteristic of all modern "Chinese". It is impossible to highlight any shortcomings in the exterior. The car looks exactly as any modern vehicle should look, albeit in the budget price segment.
If you pay attention to the interior of the car, then you will not be able to highlight something worthwhile. Yes, there is a practical placement of the main controls inside, all the necessary devices are located at hand, however, something special that could not be found in competitors is definitely not found here.
