In addition to a rich interior and many options, the SUV surprised with an unusual engine.
The premium brand TANK, part of the Great Wall, held a presentation for the Russian market, where it announced configurations and prices for the Tank 500 SUV. Nikita Gudkov, deputy editor-in-chief of Za Rulem magazine, shared his first impressions of what he saw.
First of all, he noted that the car is not as big as it looks in the photographs. Experts compared the Tank 500 with the Toyota Land Cruiser 200, but, according to Gudkov, it is “missing” before it. But what surprised me was the abundance of chrome, fitted unexpectedly inaccurately for the modern “Chinese”. By the way, only the version with a spare wheel under the bottom, and not on the back door, will go to Russia.

“But the salon is expensive and rich, the Cruiser never dreamed of – even the“ three hundredth ”. The steering column is electrically adjustable, the rear sofa is ventilated. Since the frame props up from below, both front and rear landing is closer to the floor than we would like. In front, there are also some playfully embossed chairs, but you have to travel. You can drown in the list of electronic options, but the third row, individual seats on the second, pneuma and diesel are not provided, ”Nikita Gudkov shares his impressions in his Telegram channel.
But what really surprised the expert was the Chinese V6 3.0 biturbo engine, unique for the Russian market. For each row of cylinders – a turbocharger. Gasoline, unlike most “Chinese”, only the 95th.
The expert also noted that the automaker carried out a number of improvements for the Russian market, in particular, an additional anticorrosive agent.
Delighted Nikita Gudkov and a palette of four colors in which SUVs are painted. At the same time, only one is frankly dark – the rest are all sorts of gray-beige.
