All the pros and cons of Kaiyi X7 according to Cenyavto.com magazine
Recently, a whole scattering of Chinese-made models has appeared on the Russian automobile market. One of the latest brands is Kaiyi. In the near future, the Kaiyi Kunlun X7 crossover will be launched on our market, and not so long ago the prices for this crossover became known. Today, this SUV remains a mystery for potential buyers. We have collected reviews from Chinese owners of the X-Seventh in order to somewhat clarify the picture about the main advantages and disadvantages of the Kaiyi X7.
Technical analogue of Chery Tiggo 8. First of all, Kaiyi X7 is structurally very similar to the popular Chery Tiggo 8 model, which has proven itself well in Russia. It has the same 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine producing 197 hp. Same 6-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Almost identical chassis and braking system. Essentially, Kaiyi X7 is a clone of Tiggo 8, but under a different brand and with a slightly modified exterior.
Spacious salon. Further, the owners note the spacious and high-quality interior. Soft materials are used, the strict design of the dashboard creates the feeling of an expensive car. For rear passengers, there are USB connectors for charging gadgets, a climate control system, and an armrest with cup holders. Comfortable seats with adjustments, good visibility and ergonomics of the driver’s seat are also pleasing.
Soft suspension. However, like any car, the Kaiyi X7 crossover has certain disadvantages. In particular, some car owners on the Internet complain about the soft suspension, which does not cope well with bad roads, resulting in strong vibration and swaying in the cabin.
Problems with electronic systems. In addition, there are complaints about electronic systems – in rare cases, there are malfunctions in the operation of multimedia, cruise control and parking sensors. (photo: Kaiyi)
