CHINESE car maker LDV has reset its D90 7-seat SUV offering to the Australian market, to deliver unrivalled value, safety and technology – with new standard features including adaptive cruise control, autonomous braking and blind spot monitoring.
With a focus on safety, the D90 presents buyers with an array of technology usually found in far more expensive vehicles, including lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition, front collision warning and an advanced electronic stability control.
The complete package ensures the driver maintains control and reduces the likelihood of a vehicle roll-over. The third tier of safety equipment, designed to protect the occupants in the event of accident, is headlined by six airbags.
The LDV SUV features a rigid passenger safety cell, and is powered by an advanced turbocharged petrol engine, with a choice of 2WD or 4WD; the latter with an advanced terrain selection mode, ideal for those family camping weekends away.
“We’ve listened to the market, simplified our line-up and re-calibrated the LDV D90 for hard-working Australian families,” LDV Automotive Australia GM Dinesh Chinnappa said.
“The D90 is a demonstration of the advanced technical and design capabilities of LDV. Nothing in its segment comes close, particularly to the range-topping D90 Executive, in terms of value for money, space, equipment, comfort and safety.”
With the four-wheel drive system – which includes an electronic differential lock – the driver can select vehicle set-ups according to the terrain. These options include rock, mud, sand and snow.
To further help make life that bit more comfortable, every variant in the range comes with seven spacious, adult-sized seats, and luggage capacity that expands to an impressive 2,382 litres.
“The D90 is a critical component of our brand’s growth and journey,” says Chinnappa.
“With this realigned pricing, the D90 now sets new benchmarks when it comes to value-for-money motoring, allowing us to build and prepare for even more exciting developments on this vehicle in 2020,” he added.
The LDV D90 range starts at $35,990 for the 2WD auto, ahead of $39,990 for the 2WD version of the range topping D90 Executive, and $43,990 the 4WD Executive variant, with terrain selection and an automatic transmission. All prices are drive away.
It’s backed by a 5-star ANCAP safety rating and a 5-year 130,000km warranty.
