A Look At Chinese Made Limo Maker Hongqi’s H5 Sports Sedan

The 2019 Shanghai Auto Show plays host to lots of brand names and models you’ve likely never heard of. Among them, is the H5 Sports made by Hongqi, a local Chinese carmaker that’s mostly known for creating high-end limos and sedans for state officials.

But as you can see, the H5 Sports is no government car. In fact, it’a mid-size sports sedan, offered as a more dynamic alternative to the regular Hongqi H5.

Compared to the regular model, the H5 Sports gets a bevy of exterior upgrades, including new front and rear bumpers, reworked grille, glossy black lower trim, and boot-mounted spoiler, and quad exhaust tips. The most evident feature of the car shown in Shanghai is the bright yellow paintwork contrasted by a black roof and other darkened elements mentioned above.

Power comes from a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine, rated at 178 horsepower and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, like in the regular H5, and the car is front-wheel drive. Both the H5 and H5 Sport are based on the same platform as the Mazda6.

The non-Sports model is 4,945 mm (194.7 in) long, 1,845 mm (72.6 in) wide and 1,470 mm (57.9 in) tall, with a 2,875 mm (113.2 in) long wheelbase. This means that it’s 80 mm (3.1 in) longer, 5 mm (0.2 in) wider and 20 mm (0.8 in) taller than the third-gen Mazda6 Sedan, whereas the wheelbase is 35 mm (1.4 in) long.
