The Chery B14 MPV be a nice competitor to the Naza Ria and Toyota Innova if it is priced below RM100,000. It’s also known as the Chery V5 Crossover. The MPV is a 7-seater powered by 2.0 petrol, 2.4 petrol or 1.9 turbodiesel engine options. I’m guessing the petrol engine options are the same as the Chery Tiggo’s and we’ll get the 2.0 litre unit. It was first unveiled as a concept vehicle at the 2004 Beijing Motor Show.
Alado Corp Sdn Bhd plans to assemble the Chery V5 Crossover locally at Oriental Assembler Sdn Bhd’s plant in Johor Baru in October 2006. This 7-seater MPV should be on sale in November 2006 if plans go smoothly.
