Great Wall Wingle spotted again on test!

Great Wall Wingle

Volkswagen MagellanHere’s another shot of the Great Wall Wingle being tested in Malaysia, this time snapped in Genting by reader Mior. This time there’s a very clear front shot of the car, featuring a design that was clearly “inspired” from the Volkswagen Magellan Concept (shown left). I have no idea when this is scheduled to launch, but from what I am aware of, it uses a Bosch-developed 2.8 litre turbodiesel engine putting out 95 horsepower and 225Nm from 1,600rpm. Having it appear so often doesn’t really mean anything especially with a Chinese marque as there is a precedent somewhat set by the ChangAn CM8, which was also spotted over a year before it was actually launched. In case you’re wondering what’s with the odd name, Wingle is actually said to be a combination of Wind and Eagle.

  • i guarantee the quality sure like dog shit.

    i've owned a china made car before, and NEVER AGAIN will i ever want to get a china car.

    the workmanship is non-existant, panel gaps are so huge you can fit the Nile River inside. and the engines are pratically ancient.

    no thank you. even if its cheap, i dont want to put my life/comfort at risk.

    "i've got a wingle in my garage. wanna see it?"

    funny how Malaysians laugh at Chinese products, I have never seen anything made from Malaysia in my life in New Zealand, possibly can't make anything at all. it's very funny to see southern asians criticizing something that they couldn't even make… LMAO

  • What a bunch of losers and Hypocrites you have in Malaysia, what does proton produce? the ugly and super unreliable Gen 2? and "The Asia Answer to BMW" Aka the Waja? The badge of Lotus is the only thing lotus on all protons, Proton only produce shit old Mitsubishi cars, nothing innovation at all. Just look at sales record overseas and reviews. This is more of a political debate rather than a technical one. China will dominate the world in the very near future, learn to leave with that losers!!

      at least its still a “mitsubishi”
      even though u said its “old mitsubishi”
      i think its way much better than “new” chinese car FFS!
