Following the GAC brand, which recently announced sales of the seven-seat GS8, another Chinese brand with a similar name announced similar intentions.

It is claimed that the JAC S7 is endowed with one of the most spacious salons in the class. With a length of 4,790 mm and a wheelbase of 2,750 mm, it has three rows of seats, and the two rear can be folded in the proportion of 60/40 and 50/50. The claimed trunk capacity ranges from 960 l in the five-seater version to a maximum of 1,358 l.

The crossover will be released on the market, as expected, armed with two turbomotors of 1.5 l and 2.0 l. the First develops 174 HP and 250 Nm of torque, the second-190 HP and 300 Nm, and they will work with six-speed mechanics or a robot with " wet " clutches. Curiously, all-wheel drive JAC S7 will not get in any version - only the front, while the GAC GS8 can be both mono - and all-wheel drive.

The list of proposed equipment for the Russian market includes six airbags, a set of driver's assistants, dual-zone climate control, electronic handbrake, electric trunk, Parking sensors, all-round cameras and so on. Multimedia capabilities of the future novelty include a 12.3-inch digital dashboard with three options for displaying information, a multimedia system with a touch screen and a projection display. Top-end version of the JAC S7 promised, for example, leather interior, infinity speakers with subwoofer, panoramic roof, electric seat adjustments and so on.

To produce a crossover for Russian buyers will be relatively close-at the plant "Saryarkaavtoprom" in Kazakhstan. Accordingly, we can hope for relatively affordable prices, but they will be announced only closer to the start of sales, which is scheduled for August 2020.
