Chevrolet’s new FNR-X concept for the Shanghai auto show is incredibly sexy. In fact, it is one of the coolest SUVs in a show absolutely packed with one-off showpieces. Most of these are a million miles from the production cars on that same brand. Is the FNR-X?
Perhaps only a half-million miles. It actually seems feasible for these design themes to come to life, as well as the Volt-inspired PHEV drivetrain.
The reasons we love the FNR-X design are its gorgeous proportions, low roof and sharply carved surfaces. Check out the three-dimensionality of the tailgate! Or the slimline LED lamps in a precisely cut face of layered bumpers/intakes.
It just looks so cool! Compare this with the new Equinox…?
Reminds us of a previous Chevy showcar from China.. the Miray (below) and of course the FNR itself (above). Both great and hopefully still influencing the US range as well.
