The Russian representative office of the Chinese brand announced the start of sales of the SUV, the production of which was launched at the end of last month at Avtotor's facilities.
The owner of the Kaiyi brand is the Chinese multi-brand company Chery. Kaya's first-born in the Russian Federation was the E5 sedan; production of this model started at the Kaliningrad Avtotor plant at the end of January of this year. By the way, a Kolesa.ru correspondent has already conducted a test drive of this four-door. Now another model has been added to the local lineup: we are talking about the Kaiyi X3 crossover.

The Comfort and Luxury versions differ not only in equipment, but also in appearance: for example, the basic version received a radiator grille with a pattern in the form of horizontal stripes, while the top-end version of the SUV was decorated with the so-called “matrix” grille with a pattern of small dots. The central and rear roof pillars are made in black, thereby achieving the effect of a “floating top”. The palette includes six body color options – white, black, red, blue, light gray and dark gray.

Recall that the closest relative of the Kaiyi X3 produced in the Russian Federation is the imported Chery Tiggo 4 SUV, which is familiar to Russians ( Now in the local line there is a version with a Pro increase; the pre-reform Chery Tiggo 4 left the Russian market last summer). Its cost today varies from 2,249,900 to 2,699,900 rubles. It is worth noting that the Kaiyi X3 Pro with a sportier appearance will soon enter the Russian market; its price tag will be declassified later.
