DFSK Glory 580 Pro.
The Dongfeng Fengguang 580 is a compact crossover SUV manufactured since 2016 under the Dongfeng Sokon (DFSK) sub-brand by the Chinese automaker Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd.
The upmarket version of the 580 is the Fengguang 580 Pro, which was originally only available on the Chinese market. At the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show, it was first displayed and went on sale to the public in China on 31 July 2019.
The 580 Pro has a separate front and rear fascia and is paired with an automatic 6-speed transmission. In 2018, in collaboration with Regal Motors, DFSK launched the Glory 580 SUV in Pakistan.
As disclosed by Amir Usman of GM Sales and Marketing, the vehicle’s introductory price is PKR. 4,549,000. Usman has also confirmed that bookings for the vehicle are expected to begin on 21 December 2020.
It is worth noting here that the Glory 580 Pro is still the cheapest top-trim level compact crossover SUV in the segment, despite apparently having a price bump of Rs. 100,000. In comparison, the car is sold with a warranty of 3 years/60,000 kilometers, which is not the highest on the market, but is also arguably beneficial.
The vehicle will have a 4-cylinder turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 150 horsepower at 2000 RPM and 220 Newton-Meters of torque at 4000 RPM, all of which will be transmitted to the front wheels via an automatic 6-speed CVT gearbox.
The Glory 580 also consists of McPherson struts upfront and a torsion bar coil spring suspension in the back with respect to the suspension setup. With ABS technology to allow for improved stopping ability, the vehicle also has disc brakes, both upfront and outback.
With a sleek and subtle dash style, the DFSK Glory 580 has a very attractive interior. A reasonably elegant look is provided by the wood trim piece that runs along the top length of the dashboard. A floating, 9-inch touch-sensitive LED panel for the infotainment device that provides Mobile access is above the elegant central air vents.
There is a sporty-looking steering wheel on the driver’s side with perforated leather stitching, multimedia features, cruise control settings, and a gauge cluster in the middle with a digital screen displaying the critical details of the car. The car also comes with a panoramic sunroof that makes it look much cooler and more comfortable by letting light into the cockpit.
The cabin is pretty spacious and new as well. The car is available with three-row seats, and also has air conditioning vents in the rear. There are cup holders for all travelers in the third row, who will be sitting in the back.
In terms of architecture, the DFSK Glory 580 Pro has been significantly refreshed for the 2020 model. It had a fairly tidy and subdued look in the past. Yet the vehicle looks a lot more distinctive and modern with the redesign.
You get a modern-looking pair of LED headlights with DRLs and sequential turn signals on the front, a few fog lights at the bottom, and a radical but tasteful new grid concept for limitless starlight. With indicator lights incorporated within the mirrors, you even get driven mirrors.
