The CS55 Plus crossover is now sold on the Russian market under the name Uni-S – as promised, it has become part of the Uni line and has changed its index to the letter S. One of the first such cars was photographed; its image is published by the Chinese Cars portal. It is worth noting that the renaming will also affect another Changan model – the Lamore sedan. It will turn into Uni-L, although there is no confirmation of this yet.

The fact that Changan decided to reform its model line in Russia became known at the end of 2023. Then it was reported that the crossover CS55 Plus and Lamore would become part of the Uni family and would be called Uni-S and Uni-L, respectively. The Uni family itself will be positioned as a sub-brand with an original logo, and it was proposed to choose it through voting. And in January 2024, one of the options was patented by Rospatent.

The Uni-S and Uni-L will join the Changan Uni-V liftback, the Uni-T compact crossover and the larger Uni-K SUV, which are already on sale in Russia. During this year, the Changan model line will undergo other changes: sales of the CS55, pre-restyling CS35 Plus and CS95, CS75 FL and CS85 will end. And the Alsvin and Eado Plus sedans, CS35 Plus, CS75 Plus, CS95 crossovers and the Hunter Plus pickup will remain in service. According to the company’s plans, by the end of this year Changan will sell 180 thousand cars in Russia – 90 thousand Changan and Uni each.

Returning to the CS55 Plus/Uni-S, it is currently presented in Russia in three equipment levels, with a 1.5-liter turbo engine producing 181 horsepower and a seven-speed “robot”. It has exclusively front-wheel drive. Prices for the model range from 2,629,900 to 2,749,900 rubles. It is unknown whether they will change with the renaming of the crossover to Uni.
