Ahead we see quite an interesting bumper, which also received an aerodynamic skirt, beautiful stamps and stylish fog lights. At least for that designers should have to say thank you. Not a bad optics, neat label manufacturer, teardrop-shaped exterior mirrors make the front of the sedan is quite lovely.

It should be noted that the back and front, even tall people cling to the ceiling crown will not be, and it is important at times. This seat is not on the floor, and picked up at a very comfortable level.
To trim down minimum claims. The database is a fabric upholstery, but you can order and interior made entirely of synthetic perforated leather. Used plastic is not oak, but quite durable and reliable. Perhaps the central console is not performed in the style of modern cars, but still require something of this from the budget sedan hardly worth it.
We can say that the interior 2018-2019 Chery Bonus 3 (A19) did not disappoint, and even allowed to feel some nostalgia notes. Comfortable steering wheel, a comfortable chair, good distribution of controls, good equipment makes this car attractive to prospective buyers.

Although it is a wealth of configuration options, and at least for a fee and make the purchase of such vehicles priority over more expensive cars, in which the set of prerequisites have to re-buy for a fee, for the database there are too few options included.
As we have said, officially 2018-2019 Chery Bonus 3 cars in Russia yet. Therefore, to talk about the prices, we can not for the Russian market. Nevertheless, let’s find out what prices are set at the low-cost sedan in China in terms of the more familiar to us dollars, because I believe in RMB somehow complicated.
So, for the basic version of the already known equipment in China asked about 8700 dollars. Over the following packaging cost you have to pay about another $ 600 on top. For predtopovuyu version of the manufacturer asks for another 600-700 dollars to more than, well, a top execution will cost 11 200 dollars.
Modern and innovative developments in the engine compartment company Cherie their customers does not spoil. And in this case we are dealing with a car built with front-wheel drive platform, independent front and semi-independent rear suspension.
- As for the power unit, then there is available only a gasoline engine 1.5-liter that produces not very impressive 108 horsepower with a torque of 140 Nm. Gearbox also do not have to choose, because the engine is complemented by a manual transmission without alternative on five stages.
