But considering the features & value for money it offers, the Glory 580 Pro is still the least expensive option among the competition with an added advantage of being a 7-seat crossover SUV. The DFSK Glory 580 Pro will compete against the likes of Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Proton X70 and the MG HS whereas with a price tag lower than that of Honda Civic turbo, the 580 Pro will also entice expensive sedan buyers into buying a fully loaded crossover SUV.
