The Senia R7 City version gets a revised front end appearance using a large grille design, with sharp fog lamp enclosures on both sides of the bumper. ‘SENIA‘ has been written on top of the front grille. The R7 City is now also equipped with roof luggage rack, so that its practicality has been improved. The car comes equipped with double five-spoke alloy rims and red brake calipers.
Inside, the R7 City carries the same interior with some improvements. The steering wheel and seats are wrapped in leather and equipped with Yijiazhi entertainment system.
The Senia R7 City will be equipped with the same naturally aspirated 1.6 liter unit with 109hp and 155nm, that comes with the regular R7. However a turbocharged 1.5 liter engine, with maximum power of 150 horsepower & peak torque 220 Nm, will be made available as well. The R7 will likely get a 6-speed tiptronic transmission.
FAW is expected to bring the R7 SUV in Pakistan by 2019. Stay tuned to CarSpiritPK for more information on FAW R7/ R7 City.
