The company says the Omoda 5 is its first truly global model, simultaneously developed in left- and right-hand drive and benchmarked against the Mazda CX-30, Hyundai Kona and Toyota C-HR. Those are some heavy hitters in the small SUV segment, so does the Omoda 5 stack up? And can it topple more established Chinese players like the MG ZST and GWM Haval Jolion? The Omoda 5’s look is perhaps vaguely reminiscent of the Nissan Qashqai at the rear, but Chery’s designers have given it a memorable look – it’s far from a copycat design like the brand’s old QQ and J11. There are some funky colors available too. The interior, like the exterior, offers plenty of flash. There’s some substance here, too, but the technology still has some bugs to be ironed out.
