OMODA widens appeal of C5

OMODA South Africa has expanded the OMODA C5 range from three to five models including the introduction of Luxury and Luxury S grades.

Prior to the introduction of these new models, the OMODA C5 range consists of the Tech, Elegance and Elegance S models. The new Luxury and Luxury S grades will slot in between the Tech and Elegance ranges.

In terms of specifications and styling the new Luxury grade is similar to its Elegance siblings than to the Tech model.

Both Luxury models have 18” precision cut alloy wheels with 215/55 tyres and red brake callipers. These models also have the same stylish roof-mounted spoiler, LED running and brake lights and sunroof as the top of the range model.

These models can be ordered with a dual colour scheme where the roof is in a contrasting colour to the rest of the body.

As with the Elegance S model, the Luxury S model receives vibrant red detailing in the front bumper, alloy wheels and roof mounted spoiler. This distinguishes it from the OMODA C5 Luxury model. Inside the new Luxury and Luxury S models the cloth seats of the Tech model have been replaced by leather upholstery.

Other upgrades from the Tech specification level include powered seat adjustment for both the driver (six ways) and the front passenger (four ways). The sunroof is powered, as is the rear hatch door for easy access and greater security.

OMODA has also added the popular 360-degree camera system to this specification level, thus allowing for easy manoeuvrability .

Other luxury features in this grade includes climate control, cruise control, intelligent voice commands that control everything from the air temperature to the operation of the sunroof, the dual 10.25 inch information and entertainment clusters linked to a SONY sound system. The latter is connected to 8 speakers, up from the 6 speakers on the OMODA C5 Tech model.

Under the hood, the OMODA C5 in Luxury and Luxury S trims have the same powertrain as the other C5 models. This means it is powered by a smooth 1.5 turbo petrol engine that delivers 115 kW at 5 500 rpm and 230 Nm between 1 750 rpm and 4 000 rpm.

The engine drives the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with manual-shifting capabilities. Also shared with other OMODA C5 models are the comprehensive service plan and mechanical warranty. The new models are sold with a comprehensive 5 year / 150 000 km warranty and 5 year / 70 000 km service plan.

The OMODA C5 is backed by the Chery Group’s unmatched 1 million kilometre / 10-year engine warranty.

The new models retail for R477 900 for the OMODA C5 Luxury and R479 900 for the OMODA C5 Luxury S model.
