    This is why I'm personally not confident in purchasing Chinese cars (except for Maxus which is locally distributed by the Ayala Group)

    I've seen a "Changan thread" as early as 2005, another thread in 2013 and 2019. I've seen a van (or 2) on local roads.

    But I personally didn't know they left (PH) and was surprised to see this morning's news that they're "re-entering" the local market under CMPI

    Changan re-enters PH market with five new models, including one EV | TopGear PH



    Chinese carmaker Changan is back in the Philippines, and it’s re-entering the market with no less than five new models. This time around, the brand will be distributed by Changan Motor Philippines, Inc. (CMPI), managed by the same leaders who brought in Hyundai to the Philippines.

    CS35 Plus - subcompact SUV
    CS75 Plus - compact SUV
    CS95 - seven-seat midsize SUV

    CS35 looks good. I wonder how this will be priced.

    I think their 1yr or 20,000km maintenance interval is pretty good. Can we ask for transparency or pricing for the 5yr maintenance cost?

    Chinese Ancap scores?

    The recent local Changan renames the brand into Kaicene to give way for this "new" Changan.

    The previous one Sports the old Star Trek Logo, and sells their light commercial vehicle models. I wondered that time why they didn't use the new V- logo. When the news of the name change came, with all the Chinese big names coming in, it was a safe bet already this is bound to happen.
