IT'S being touted as the Ace of Space, and this Chinese crossover from Chery is here in Brunei. The seven-seater Cross Eastar has, its press release says, all the comforts of a high-class station wagon with enough space to fit your whole family comfortably.
Claiming it offers the best of both worlds value and price distributor TCY Motors says the MPV boasts distinctive sophisticated styling with a sporty edge, state-of-the art features, power and luxurious interior.
"The Eastar also adopts the high-class car chassis adjusted by the Lotus Company, with a hint of the French TGV or Japan's bullet train about its styling and the clean flowing lines it employs," it says.
The side profile is one that employs a high slab-sided waistline, which along with a straight non-parallel roofline, means the front of the cabin has an airy look, but this gradually morphs into a more defensive/aggressive style towards the rear.
"The Cross Eastar illustrates the harmonious perfection of crossovers with its 1.6m height which provides the best field of vision based on the exterior height and human vision height," the company says, adding that it is the most appropriate distribution of vehicle length, chassis and tire integration technique while obtaining the best wind resistance coefficient for driving safety.
The Cross Eastar is powered by a big Mitsubishi 2.4-litre, long stroke four-cylinder engine. While peak torque of 144lb/ft arrives at the crucial mid-range 2,500-3,000rpm, there is plenty of torque on offer from the engine.
The Cross Eastar's multivariant feature of the MPV means the seats can be laid down to give more space and arranged in combinations to create a comfortable environment for passengers.
The car will retail for $34,750 and will be launched at the TCY showroom in Batu Bersurat on Friday.
