This week’s Shanghai Auto Show has brought more than a few SUV-related unveilings, and here’s another: the Zinoro Concept Next.
Revealed purely as a design study, the Concept Next has nothing to offer but its looks. There’s no interior with this one, no powertrain, and zero details.
But, for Zinoro, a collaborative brand launched by BMW and China’s Brilliance in 2013, this midsized SUV concept is an important preview of things to come.
This new concept, then, represents our first look at what Zinoro can offer in the way of an SUV styled to its own formula.
When it eventually reaches production, the Next is expected to be built on the same platform that underpins the current BMW X3.
Developed exclusively for the Chinese market, where SUV sales topped 474,100 in March alone, the Zinoro brand is unlikely to come to Australia.
Watch for details on the Next’s evolution as a next-generation SUV to come in the year ahead.
