Through a cooperation project with Geleximco, two Omoda C5 models were brought to Vietnam for research and market exploration purposes before officially opening for sale.
Specifically, previously, Omoda & Jaecoo Automobile Co., Ltd., a member of Chery Group, China, signed a principle contract with Geleximco Group to cooperate in building an automobile manufacturing and assembly factory worth 800 million VND. dollars in Thai Binh, and after 3 months, the Omoda C5 prototype was tested in Vietnam.
Omoda C5 appears in Vietnam with 2 standard and advanced versions, the car has dimensions of length, width and height of 4,400 x 1,830 x 1,588 mm, wheelbase 2,630 mm. With the above parameters, the Omoda C5 will belong to the B-size SUV segment, which currently has many competitors such as Hyundai Creta, KIA Setlos, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, Toyota Yaris Cross, MG ZS, Peugeot 2008 or Mitsubishi Xforce.
The exterior of the Omoda C5 follows the current trend of not having too many cut lines and instead being smooth. Notably, the front of the car has a bold direction with an overflow grille connecting the 2 navigation light clusters above, and below is the Bi-Led headlight cluster.
Although the outside does not have many highlights, the interior space follows current design trends with a dual screen cluster integrating an electronic driving clock and central screen. The car also has some standard equipment such as sports seats, D-Cut steering wheel, wireless charging, sunroof…
But in the standard version, the equipment is somewhat less with only mechanical seats, leather and felt upholstery, etc. The center pedestal uses a rather large electronic gear lever with a design that is not really aesthetic. In addition, it will also be equipped with an electronic handbrake with an automatic brake hold feature.
Regarding safety, Omoda C5 also has a lot of equipment such as 6 airbags, 360-degree camera, especially the ADAS active safety system with up to 14 different features. This can be considered a plus point because there are rarely any competitors in the same segment that have such a large number of safes.
The engine block on the Omoda C5 is also somewhat superior when equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged gasoline engine with a capacity of 150 horsepower, 230 Nm, comes with a CVT gearbox that supports 9-speed simulation and comes with 2 driving modes: Sport and Eco. . This parameter is only inferior to the Honda HR-V L/RS version and is superior to other competitors.
It is expected that Omoda C5 will officially launch to Vietnamese users at the end of this year. Although it belongs to a Chinese brand, it will likely be imported from Indonesia before being assembled at the end of 2025. Selling price It is not yet public but is estimated to be between 700 and 800 million VND.
