The Exeed LX crossover, which opens the brand's range on the home market in China, has undergone a restyling at the end of October this year. In Russia, an SUV with a different appearance is presented, because this model entered the market in March of this year (now dealers have front-wheel drive versions of the LX). The all-wheel drive modification received a vehicle type approval (OTTS) last month, the document was issued for cars made in China. Now, the Russian representative office of Exeed has officially announced the start of collecting pre-orders for the new product.
The new version of the Exeed LX is equipped with a SQRF4J16 petrol “turbo four” with direct fuel injection (this engine is in the line of the mid-size TXL SUV presented in the Russian Federation). The engine displacement is 1.6 liters, the power is 150 hp, and the maximum torque is 275 Nm. The pair offers a seven-speed robot with two clutches. This Exeed LX takes 10.2 seconds to accelerate from standstill to hundreds.

In addition, there is a corresponding driving mode - 4x4; this list also includes Eco, Comfort, Sport, Snow and Ground.

The crossover has an expanded set of ADAS driver assistance systems. Due to the adaptive cruise control, the Exeed LX is able to maintain a distance from the vehicle in front. The minimum set speed threshold is 30 km/h. The kit also includes a collision avoidance system that warns the driver of danger with an audible signal, and can also use autonomous deceleration if necessary. This system is able to recognize not only other vehicles, but also pedestrians and cyclists.
