Excitement as new Jetour X90 Plus enters Nigeria’s auto market

Jetour has unveiled its new model, X90 Plus, introduced into the Nigerian market with some unique features to meet the mobility needs of Nigerian auto lovers.

Also known as Cruise, Jetour Mobility Service, says the model comes with luxury, power and opulence.

According to the auto firm, the introduction of Jetour into the Nigerian auto market brings excitement and great expectations because of its background and offerings.

Jetour Automobile is a new brand launched by Chery Holdings in response to market trends and consumer demand.

Presently available in the Nigerian market are Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) like the X70-Liberty, X70 Plus-Elegance, X90 Plus – Cruise and the Dashing.

The X90 Plus – Cruise – remains the lead of the pack, offering fantastic and mouth-watering features that are hard to find in its class.

“With the Jetour X90 Plus, what you find are an affluent experience, intelligent safety and world-class luxury that last throughout your journey, be it a city drive or long-distance adventure. Compared to its peers, the Jetour X90Plus offers enviable manoeuvrability and stability courtesy of its 1780mm height and exciting interior space based on its 4858mm length and 1925mm width.

“Its sophisticated nature is emboldened by the hexagonal chrome-plated front grill, complemented by Tri-LED headlights. Connecting its double waistline is a new angular designed bumper, stealthy housing front cameras and radar sensor,” Jetour Mobility said.

The vehicle’s appearance is further enhanced by its 20-inch alloy wheels and suspended roof design with contrasting side pillars.

Jetour X90 Plus rear design finishing is facilitated by the LED taillights, chrome-tipped dual exhaust and bigger tailgate with blacked-out D-pillars.

The vehicle offers 35 smart storage areas with flat-folding rear seats, just as the panoramic roof, 36-decibel noise insulation, and the CN95 air filter further boost its interior ambience.

According to Jetour, the X90 Plus “expansive cargo and cabin space fit everything and everyone you want to take on your next adventure. Enjoy the total luxury and comfort of the Jetour X90 Plus 5/7-seater layout.

The X90 Plus advanced virtual cockpit utilises a dual 12.3-inch HD centre touch screen. A uniquely integrated central control screen offers seamless control of all comfort functionality.

The 5-Star safety-rated vehicle comes with a 75 percent high-strength steel body cage, 360-degree panoramic camera with front and rear radar, as well as advanced safety features like lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and micro-electric cruise control.

The SUV is backed by a powerful engine. Its 1.6-litre four-cylinder Turbo engine is made to deliver 197 bhp of max power, just as its 7-speed DCT transmission powers the front wheels seamlessly. It also comes with a 2.0-litre Turbo engine that delivers 254 bhp of max power in addition to the 1.6 L engine.

According to Jetour, “the independent multi-link suspension improves ride quality, while smart onboard electronics ensure vehicle stability.”

Jetour, with an apt slogan of Drive Your Future, is a product of a well-established family, the Chery Holding Group, and is being distributed in Nigeria by Jetour Mobility Services.

Based on 23 years of production experience, Chery Holding Group has sold over 8.5 million cars, exports exceed 1.6 million cars, and it has ranked number one in China’s passenger vehicle exports 18 years in a row.
