All-new Jetour X70 Plus is a fully-loaded 7-seater for the family
The Jetour brand wants to immediately make its presence felt in the Philippine market by heading straight to the crossover segment with its initial offerings.
In its brand launch today, Jetour has also introduced the all-new X70 Plus, serving as the bigger but just as stylish sibling of the Dashing crossover.
Measuring 4749 mm long, 1900 mm wide, and 1720 mm high, the 2023 X70 Plus lines up right in the midsize crossover / SUV territory. Size-wise, the X70 Plus is slightly longer and wider than the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro but sits a bit lower. The wheelbase is also longer than the Tiggo 8 Pro, and it has 210 mm of ground clearance.
At the front, the 2023 X70 Plus' angry-looking front fascia reminds us a lot of the current-generation Isuzu mu-X, but the Chinese crossover distinguishes itself by having the "J E T O U R" emblem proudly placed above its large front grille. LED headlights and DRLs are fitted as standard to provide the X70 Plus with night-time illumination.
Meanwhile, the raked beltline and the slim windows give a low roof effect to the X70 Plus when seen from its side profile, along with wearing 20-inch wheels as standard. The rear end features full-width LED taillights with smoked lenses. Together with the big quad exhaust finishers, the Jetour X70 Plus completes its look as a sporty 7-seater.
Inside, the X70 Plus greets you with a dual-screen display on the dashboard, complete with soft-touch leather padding on the panels and silver contrasting accents. Its overall design is actually reminiscent of Mercedes-Benz interiors. As seen from the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro, the X70 Plus likewise has an elevated center console, which houses things like the shifter, drive mode selector, electronic parking brake, and controls for the A/C system.
Other creature comforts include a 62-inch panoramic sunroof, power-adjustable seats with heating, cooling, and memory functions, rear A/C vents, and a bunch of USB charging ports.
In terms of its engine, the 2023 Jetour X70 Plus is powered by a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder T-GDI engine that puts out 156 PS and 230 Nm of torque. It is paired with a 6-speed wet-type dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the front wheels.
Jetour Auto Philippines is offering the X70 Plus for PHP 1.499 million.
