Video: 2023 Chery Omoda 5 – The value king, or just another pretty face?

Back in July, Chery made its official comeback to the Malaysian market with the launch of two new SUVs, and one of them was its B-segment fighter – the Chery Omoda 5. Locally assembled in Kulim, Kedah, the Chery Omoda 5 is offered in two variants – the C and H variants, and is priced at RM108,800 and RM118,000 respectively.

On the outside, the Chery Omoda 5 features the brand’s “Art in Motion” design language. Equipment-wise, the X50-fighter is packed with LED lighting and 18-inch alloys as standard. The H variant also gets sequential turn indicators, welcome light animations, and red accents on the outside.

Inside, the Chery Omoda 5 is fitted with faux leather and fabric combo upholstery, twin “floating” 10.25-inch displays, together with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. It also comes with a wireless charging pad and an ambient lighting system.

The H variant gets extra features such as an 8-speaker Sony Premium sound system, a six-way powered driver seat with ventilation, full faux leather upholstery, a powered sunroof, and a hands-free powered tailgate.

Powering the brand’s B-segment SUV across its range is a 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 156 hp and 230 Nm. The mill is paired with a CVT gearbox with nine virtual gears, sending power to the front wheels.

The Chery Omoda 5 in Malaysia comes with a 7-year/150,000 km manufacturer’s warranty, together with five years of free labour. Customers can also opt for an extended 10-year/1,000,000 km engine warranty package by topping up an extra RM2,000.
