Forthing T5 Evo on the Russian market will receive new exterior options and a different interior

Interior changes include a sand-colored interior trim that will complement the current black and red options.

The Forthing brand belongs to the Chinese concern Dongfeng, in the home market it is Fengxing, which literally translates as “popular”. It entered the Russian car market in 2023. Let us remind you that the importer, whose role is played by the company Ixen Motors Rus, is responsible for the sales of models of this Chinese brand. One of the models presented in Russia is the Forthing T5 Evo crossover; this year it will undergo several changes.

As reported by Ixen Motors Rus, the Forthing T5 Evo will have three appearance options. It is noted that the changes consist of “adjustments” to the bumpers, sills and radiator grille, while the body panels remain the same. In the first version, the so-called “classic”, the model is presented now – it has a large radiator grille with vertical lines in black and a neat air intake at the bottom of the front bumper.

The second option has the same “grill”, but the exterior differs due to the enlarged splitter at the bottom of the front bumper, as well as contrasting accents – bright thin lines along the perimeter of the body. The third version has a different radiator grille – a modified shape and with a pattern of horizontal stripes, as well as modified bumpers. By the way, such a crossover made its debut on the domestic market at the end of last spring: it was announced as a special version with an addition, which translated from Chinese means Hurricane, that is, “hurricane.”
