Essentially a production version of the Neora concept, the Luxgen5 has an aerodynamic body, an advanced infotainment system and two turbocharged engines.
Luxgen has unveiled their 5 sedan, ahead of its public debut at the 2012 Taipei Auto Show.
Essentially a production version of the Neora concept, the Luxgen5 has a prominent grille, LED-infused headlights and an aerodynamic body with a 0.28 drag-coefficient.
The exterior styling isn't terribly exciting, but the cabin is a tech lover's dream. First and foremost, there's an Android-based THINK+ Touch infotainment system that was co-developed with HTC. Designed to provide "consumers with a new level of convenience," the system has a nine-inch touchscreen display which can be used to access Facebook, look up directions and send/receive e-mails.
The cabin also has leather seats, aluminum trim, an LCD/LED instrument cluster and a heads-up display that raises from the dashboard to give the "driver the visual illusion of being seated in a fighter cockpit."
Under the hood, two turbocharged engines are available. The 1.8-liter unit develops 150 hp (112 kW / 152 PS) and 231 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque, while the 2.0-liter unit produces 170 hp (127 kW / 172 PS) and 256 Nm (189 lb-ft) of torque. The latter engine is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
The Luxgen5 will be sold globally, but there's no word on market specifics.
