Great Wall X200 Diesel On Sale In Australia From April

Mike Stevens | Feb 10, 2012

Great Wall Motors distributor Ateco has confirmed that its X200 SUV will go on sale in Australia from April, starting at $25,990 drive-away.

Power for the Chinese SUV is provided by a four-cylinder turbodiesel engine delivering 105kW and 310Nm of torque, with fuel consumption listed at 7.6 l/100km.

The entry model is equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and on-demand all-wheel-drive, and a five-speed automatic with on-demand all-wheel-drive and cruise control (auto variants only) is available at $28,990 drive-away.

Standard features include leather seats, air-conditioning, power mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels and a touch-screen system with MP3/CD/DVD compatibility and six speakers.

On the safety front, the X240 carries a 4-Star ANCAP crash safety rating and it is likely that the X200 will warrant the same result.

It is fitted with driver and front passenger airbags only, leaving out side-impact side and curtain airbags but offering the now federally-mandated Electronic Stability Control as standard.

Anti-lock brakes and electronic brake-force distribution are also standard, along with a rear parking camera (still not a common standard feature in the Australian market), reversing sensors and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

The X200 is covered by a three-year / 100,000km warranty.

Unfortunately, I doubt we'll ever be able to provide informed opinion about the quality of the vehicle or the merits of the purchase. Before considering a purchase, you might wish to ask the distributor Ateco as to why there are so few Australian press reviews of Great Wall products.

    Just arrange a private extended test drive with a dealer then and do your test drive review that way. Easy fixed.

      I have just purchased a X200 getting it fitted with gas. It is claimed there will be an increase in power from the people who put it in (read reviews on diesel gas you will be surprised)the dealer was more than happy to let me go for a couple of drives. Once up a very winding, and step road, and then out on a highway, and whoops 140 kph real quickly. I did the speed limit except for that little of burst. I travel to the N.T so I wanted to get a feel of the power, no probs there, so more than happy to buy it. Don't like the speed where cruise control starts, no good for city starts at 70 kph

    Check out gwownersforum.com if you want to hear comments / criticisms and praise from Great Wall owners around Australia about all their models.

    The best way to find out if a car is worth buying is to hear about what long term owners have to say about their experiences.

    Also I agree with Mark's comment, if one wanted to do a review I'm certain there would be dealers who would oblige for an extended test drive.

      If the manufacturer won't make a vehicle available for review, why should TMR chase one via a dealer rolleyes

      Review cars that are made available instead.

      Hi Paul,

      The X240 carries a 4-Star rating and it is likely that the X200 will warrant the same result. You're right however, the X200 has not specifically been tested.
