Already Australia's lowest priced SUV, the Chery J11 is now $17,990 driveaway thanks to a $2000 cashback offer available until the end of August.
Powered by a 2.0-litre four cylinder petrol engine, the J11 features leather seats, airconditioning, power windows, MP3 compatible four-speaker stereo, 16 inch alloys and remote keyless entry.
The J11's 2.0 litre engine boasts 102kW power and 182Nm of torque, while safety features include ABS, EBD, dual airbags and front seatbelt pre-tensioners.
An automatic transmission is available as part of a $2000 option package that includes cruise control and steering wheel mounted audio controls.
The J11 is covered by a three year 100,000km warranty which includes 24/7 roadside assistance.
"The strong Aussie dollar combined with the massive economies of scale derived by the Chinese auto industry is presenting the Australian car buying public with some genuinely compelling options," Dinesh Chinnappa, general manager of Chery Automotive Australia, said.
"Why would you buy a small car when you can have an SUV for the same or less money?"
