The compact Chinese crossover Great Wall Hover M4 was unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show in 2012.
Great Wall Hover M4
Designers combined the classic forms of the Great Wall SUVs and the current trends in crossover design in M4. The appearance of the car can be called attractive and stylish. The front of the Hover M4 consists of a massive surround bumper, a black trapezoidal air intake, a narrow slotted false radiator grille, which is decorated with a chrome strip with the Great Wall logo in the center, large fog lamps in a chrome-plated frame and impressive size headlamps. A small hood in the corners is decorated with shiny lining.
The body profile eloquently hints at the attitude of the car to the class of crossovers: large circular radii of wheel arches place tires 205/60 R16 on alloy wheels 16 radius. Powerful vyshtampovki arches, puffed door surface with a high sill, compact glass, drop roof line and minimal overhangs give the image of the car even more energetic look. The line of windows does not end in the back of the car, but surrounds it from behind, creating the illusion of circular glazing. The entire lower part of the Great Wall Hover M4 is practically finished with unpainted plastic in order to protect the metal from unwanted minor damage.
The car's feed received a large rear bumper and elegant taillights, which literally spread out along the rear wings of the car. The rear window is rounded and covered with a small spoiler placed on the roof of the car. The tailgate divides the lights into two parts and the bottom is decorated with a thin chrome line. The body colors are applied bright colors of enamel: white, silver, gray, red, red pearls, dark red, bright blue, black and fashionable terracotta.
Body dimensions are 3961 mm in length, 1728 mm in width, 1617 mm in height, with 2383 mm of wheelbase and 1481 mm - front and rear track, 210 mm ground clearance (ground clearance).
Four tall passengers can easily stay in the cabin of the Hover M4, without constraining each other. With the fifth member of the crew, the “gallery” will not be as comfortable as the two head restraints hint at. There is enough space above your head, your knees do not rest against the back of the front seats. The rear space was achieved thanks to a high-mounted seat cushion, a practically vertical back and the displacement of the second row to the rear of the cabin to the detriment of the trunk volume.
