FAW Hongqi, China’s oldest and most luxurious domestic passenger car maker, has revealed their new FAE Hongqi H9 luxury sedan poised to go against models like the Mercedes E-Class, the Audi A6 and the BMW 5-Series.
Compared to its European mid-size premium rivals, even LWB ones like the E-Class L, the new Hongqi H9 has a larger footprint. Technically, it’s closer to full-size luxury sedans at 5.2 meters long with a wheelbase of over 3 meters for acres of leg room at the back.
Power is provided either by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 252 HP and 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) or a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 272 HP and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) driving the rear wheels through an automatic transmission, with the latter hitting 100km/h (62 mph) in an unimpressive for today’s standards, “just under” 8 seconds. Hongqi’s new H9 also rides on air suspension and offers a “Level 2.5” semi-autonomous driving system.
