In order to meet the needs of the A+ market, GAC Toyota launched the Lingshang, a brand-new model specifically for China.
The whole series of the car is equipped with a 2.0L self-priming engine, and the body is lengthened synchronously, which can be regarded as a “small” Camry.
A few days ago,
GAC Toyota announced the core configuration of the entire Lingshang vehicle series. The new car will be launched in June, and the pre-sale price of one of the models is 24999 US dollars ,
which is between Lei Ling (11.38-15.28 million yuan ) and Camry (179.8-279,800 yuan ). Lingshang offers two versions of 2.0L Deluxe Edition and 2.0L Premium Edition, with 7 airbags as standard.
Sister” model of GAC Toyota
It is worth noting that a few days ago, the “sister” model of GAC Toyota Lingshang , FAW Toyota Asia Lion, has also been officially launched. The car has launched 5 models with sales of 142,800 to 179,800. It is foreseeable that Lingshang’s final listing price will not be much different from it.
From the configuration information that has been exposed, Lingshang comes standard with 7 airbags, body stability control system, traction control system, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, four-window one-key lift, electronic parking system, keyless entry, and electric folding exterior Rearview mirror, etc.
From the perspective of vehicle safety, Toyota Lingshang comes from the TNGA architecture. Previously, Toyota TNGA architecture models were almost “slaughter” in the China Insurance Research Institute. At the same time, the blessing of the Lingshang 7 airbag has made the car’s safety performance even higher.
Located between Ralink and Camry, it is built on the TNGA GA-C platform. The wheelbase is 2750mm, which is 50mm longer than the current Ralink. It is a sister model with FAW Toyota Asia Lion.
In terms of power, the new car will be equipped with a 2.0L engine with a maximum power of 178 horsepower and a peak torque of 210 Nm. It is matched with a CVT gearbox.
Compared with models of the same price, this level of power is slightly weaker. However, later Toyota may also launch a hybrid version for it.
The arrival of the car will compete with joint venture A+ class cars such as Volkswagen Sagitar, Lingdu and Weilang. However, referring to the price of Asian Lions, Lingshang will be stronger than other brands in terms of price, so the price is not very competitive. In the later period, whether domestic consumers can accept Ling Shang, sales will tell everything.
