SVM G05 Pro 2024 is a mid-size front-wheel drive crossover from the Chinese automaker, claiming to be the optimal choice for a family audience. This car is the largest, although not the most expensive, in the SWM brand line. This model boasts a spacious interior with a comfortable three-row layout. As for the technical “stuffing”, everything is quite simple and unpretentious – under the hood there is a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with a capacity of 138 hp, coupled with a 7-speed robotic transmission. The G05 was first presented to the public in 2019 at the Chongqing Auto Show. In fact, it was just an evolution of the first SWM model – the X7 crossover. In 2021, the car underwent restyling and received the Pro index in the name. The main competitors of the G05 Pro in the car market are crossovers such as Haval H6, Geely Atlas Pro, Chery Tiggo 8, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Skoda Kodiaq.

However, the technical characteristics in Russia do not raise any questions – they are the same regardless of the seller. Prices for SVM G05 Pro 2024 currently start at approximately 2.5 million rubles. Current photos can be seen in this article.

Options and prices
Today, the Chinese crossover is offered in Russia in two main trim levels: Smart and Family. Essentially, the difference between the trim levels comes down to the presence of a third row in the Family version. But each of them is also divided into three more subversions, which already differ in equipment.
Smart is the basic configuration of the crossover with a starting price of 2,625,960 rubles. In this version, the car is equipped with seats covered in eco-leather, which have several adjustment ranges, but not electrically, but mechanically. In particular, the driver’s has six adjustments, and the passenger’s has four. The optics in this version are halogen, but there are LED DRLs. The taillights are also LED. Some nice optical features include a light sensor, as well as the “walk me home” function, which illuminates the road in front of the exited driver for some time after the car has been set to alarm.
The steering wheel is multifunctional and can only be adjusted for tilt. Also, the car in this version boasts a rear view camera with dynamic lines, which makes it easier to park a very large model. The multimedia complex is modern. It is represented by a large touch screen unit, reaching 12 inches. But the musical accompaniment is not the best – only 4 speakers.
Additional features of this version include:
starting the engine with a button and keyless access to the interior; small monochrome display on the dashboard; several driving modes; electric transmission control selector; power windows for each row of seats; air conditioner; 17-inch alloy wheels; roof rails.
This is perhaps all that can be said about the equipment of the crossover. Then, optionally, you can supplement it with full climate control, black headliner and other little things that ultimately will not make a significant difference in price.
The Family package has exactly the same equipment, but costs about 100,000 rubles more than the Smart version due to the additional row of seats. Thus, it turns out that the minimum price for this vehicle configuration is 2,733,460 rubles.
Under the hood of the G05 Pro is a modern 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with direct fuel injection. Its working volume is 1499 cubic centimeters. The maximum power of this power unit is 138 horsepower at 5600 rpm. Peak torque reaches 212 Nm in the rev range from 2000 to 4000 rpm. The engine is coupled with a 7-speed robotic transmission with two clutches. This gearbox is characterized by fast and smooth shifts. The crossover has exclusively front-wheel drive. There are three transmission modes: sport, economical and standard. The dynamic characteristics of the crossover are also quite adequate for this class: acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 12 seconds, and the top speed reaches 185 km/h.
The suspension is made according to the traditional design: independent MacPherson strut at the front, semi-independent spring at the rear. The braking system includes disc brakes on all wheels, with ventilated discs installed on the front axle for better cooling during intensive use. The steering is rack-and-pinion and equipped with electric power assistance for easier handling. The fuel tank capacity of this model is 52 liters. Recommended fuel is AI-95 gasoline. The environmental class of the crossover complies with Euro-6 standards.
Regarding dimensions and weight, SWM G05 Pro has the following parameters:
length – 4750 mm; width – 1865 mm; height – 1780 mm; wheelbase – 2750 mm; curb weight varies from 1625 to 1670 kg depending on the configuration; trunk volume – 670 liters.
To summarize, we can say that this SUV is a practical and roomy seven-seater crossover, equipped with a modern and fairly economical engine. It has the optimal combination of dimensions, comfort and dynamics for everyday urban use.
Contents after purchase
The crossover is attractive to buyers not only due to its affordable price, but also due to its relatively low operating costs. This makes it an even more attractive choice for the average Russian family. Firstly, the manufacturer gives the car a three-year warranty with a mileage of up to 60 thousand kilometers. This eliminates unplanned repair costs in the first years of operation. Secondly, the intervals between scheduled maintenance are quite long – 10 thousand km or 1 year. The cost of maintenance varies from 6 to 12 thousand rubles depending on the region. Thirdly, repair costs should also be moderate due to the high build quality of the crossover and the availability of spare parts. Finally, an MTPL policy for the G05 Pro will cost about 10 thousand rubles a year, and a CASCO policy will cost about 60 thousand. This is due to the relatively low class and low likelihood of the model being stolen. Thanks to a smart pricing policy, the Chinese manufacturer has made its new product truly accessible to the average Russian car owner in terms of the total costs of acquisition and operation.
