China's Dongfeng Motor Corporation will unveil a number of its novelties including its new flagship A9 sedan at the Moscow International Automobile Salon (MIAS 2016).
The A9 uses a platform from joint venture partner PSA/Peugeot-Citroen. The model was developed on the platform of the Citroen C5.. Dongfeng and PSA have the long-running Dongfeng-PSA joint venture that makes various Citroen and Peugeot branded cars for the Chinese market. Dongfeng Motir is furthermore one of the largest shareholders in PSA. The vehicle shares a production line with the C5 at Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen's assembly plant in Wuhan. The model is popular in China. China’s appetite for cars is growing with each and every passing year. The Chinese are madly in love with cars that offer ample legroom for the rear occupants.
It also uses a 1.8-liter turbocharged gasoline engine supplied by the Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Automobile Co., a 50-50 joint venture between Dongfeng and PSA. The A9 is the second sedan Dongfeng has developed with PSA's technology and further consolidates the partnership between the two carmakers. Dongfeng paid 800 million euros for a 14 percent stake in the French carmaker in 2014 as part of a financial bailout.
It is a 5-meter long premium class sedan. A very nice interior with shiploads of woods and leather. Center tunnel nicely done and screen for the infotainment system seems big enough. Seats are wide but flat. Rear lights are huge but very stylish with integrated LED strips. Lights are connected with a heavily chromed strip. Large exhaust pipe tips fir neatly fit in the bumper.
Aside from the A9 and L6, Dongfeng's Aeolus-badged product mix includes the S30 and A60 compact sedans, the AX7 crossover and E30L electric car.
