Huansu C60 Hyosow five-seat SUV is affordably priced and takes power from either a 1.5-litre or 2.0-litre engine
No matter how big the Chinese automobile industry grows, clones and copycat cars refuse to not give in, and in the latest line of look-alikes, Huansu Auto has stunned the world by going after Lamborghini Urus. Global manufacturers tend to develop country-specific spacious vehicles deviating from the regular range for China based on the descending customers’ preference.
The largest car market in the world is also the leading consumer of electric vehicles and international brands make strategic tie-ups with local companies for a sustainable future at the People’s Republic. However, Huansu Auto does not need any kind of partnerships and took a hit on the world’s fastest production SUV in the world, Lamborghini Urus.
Dubbed the Huansu C60 Hyosow, it is an obvious clone of the Italian ultra luxurious performance SUV from the company, which is part of Beijing Auto International Corporation (BAIC). Its nameplate refers to Magic Speed but its powertrain will tell a different story.
In all fairness, the exterior is not a complete rip off but the apparent styling cues are just there including the sleek headlamps and fender vents. It is more of a conventional take on the Lambo’s design. The Huansu C60 Hyosow is expected to be priced between 100,000 yuan (Rs. 10.45 lakh) and 150,000 yuan (Rs. 15.67 lakh).
It takes power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 195 horsepower and at the lower-spec it can be had with a 1.5-litre unit making 1150 horsepower. While it is several folds cheaper than the Lamborghini Urus, it is also down on technical terms as the Italian SUV kicks out 641 horsepower and 850 Nm from the 4.0-litre twin turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine.
It can accommodate as much as five adults due to the wheelbase of 2,815 mm. The C60 Hyosow is making local debut in China on the 6th of June.
