2020 Wey VV7 China facelift brings 40 improvements
Wey – an automotive sub-brand owned by the Great Wall – is barely three years old, but is already refreshing its model range. The 2020 Wey VV7 crossover/SUV debuts today with a new coupe version called GT.
You may tell the facelifted SUV from its predecessor thanks to a prominent new radiator grille, new wheels and bumpers. The top trim version now also ships with adaptive laser headlights.
The cabin looks quite similar to that of the P8 GT Hybrid. In particular, the center tunnel and the multimedia system with its huge 12.3-inch touchscreen display and driver recognition system look identical.
In its most basic form, the Wey VV7 comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine rated at 234 hp (174 kW), mated to a seven-speed DCT. The GT Coupe version packs the same engine, albeit with only 227 hp (169 kW) at its disposal. On the other hand, the coupe has Launch Control and an engine sound imitation module.
Sales in China begin in November. Prices are still pending; the current VV7 costs U.S. $24,000 and above.
