The pre-reform Brilliance V5 with an atmospheric 1.6-liter 110-horsepower engine made its debut in Russia three years ago in 2014 and, frankly, the bestseller of the domestic market did not. To date, sold just over 2500 copies of the Chinese SUV, stylized under the Bavarian crossover BMW X1 first generation . Sales of the model are scanty against the background of the main competitors Hyundai Creta , Renault Duster , Renault Kaptur , Lifan X60 New and other budget crossover with a price tag of up to 1,000,000 rubles, while pre-style versions of Brilliance B5 were offered at a price of 740.9 – 857.9 thousand rubles .

Let’s return to the updated model and find out what has changed after the restyling of the Chinese crossover, equipped with a default drive only to the front wheels.
The most important asset of the updated V5 crossover from Brilliance is, of course, a new engine – a petrol four-cylinder 1.5 Turbo (143 HP 210 Nm), offered in Russia exclusively in the company with 5 automatic transmissions. The new engine with a turbo, but the dynamic and high-speed characteristics of the SUV with a body weight of 1530 kg cause, frankly, bewilderment: from 0 to 100 kmh for 13.9 seconds, maximum speed 175 kmh, fuel consumption with combined mode of motion 7.2 liter.
Strange and incomprehensible, but similar characteristics were demonstrated by the pre-reform crossover with an atmospheric 1.6-liter 110-horsepower engine (acceleration to 100 kmph in 13.9 seconds, a top speed of 165 km / h, fuel consumption of 7.2 liters). The difference in power from the engines is already 33 horses, and the maximum torque in general is 59 Nm. Where is everyone?
Otherwise, the technical filling of the model did not change, if you do not take into account a slightly different suspension settings that provide a more comfortable movement on the road surface of poor quality. The front suspension is independent with McPherson struts, rear semi-independent with torsion beam, all wheel disc brakes, power steering electric.

In actual fact, it turns out that the restyling of the model slightly changed the body of the crossover, and a multimedia system with a color 6.5-inch screen appeared in the cabin.
