Dongfeng Aeolus A60Mon, 19 Mar 2012
Dongfeng Aeolus A60 is set to go on sale in the Chinese market this month for the first time.
The car, which uses the platform of the Dongfeng Nissan Bluebird Sylphy, features large headlamps that flank the chrome-topped front grille, creating a DRG reminiscent of its predecessor, the Aeolus A30 as well as some European and American sedans. A rising beltline runs from front to rear, lengthening the appearance of the car and addin a more dynamic character to waht is a very conventinal three-box sedan. The rear is different to the original Nissan Bluebird SYLPHY, with rear lights reminiscent of those on the Citroën C5.
Inside, the company has opted to retain almost all of the characteristics of the Dongfeng Nissan Bluebird Sylphy apart from the instrument cluster and steering wheel, which are unique to the car.
The Aeolus A60 is 4,680mm in length, 1,720mm wide and 1,515mm high, with a wheelbase of 2,700mm. The Aeolus has targeted the Besturn B70 and the Roewe 550 as its main rivals within the market.
