(t%s su&&osed to $e a little more cross3over than a re"ular small hatch so we "ot $ehind the wheel to see what%s what4 Performance 5nder the $onnet you%ll find a ,.+3litre &etrol en"ine that delivers 66#W. 7or the size of the car it%s am&le &ower that "et%s delivered from the en"ine hel&ed alon" $y ,82!m of tor-ue the C20R does a decent 'o$ of &ullin" itself alon". )o "et some real "runt from the en"ine you need to #ee& the revs u& a little &ea# &ower 9the 66#W: only #ic#s in at ;000R0M. /o if you%re a$out to "o u& a hill dro& a "ear you%ll than# me later. Economy Claimed economy is 6.6 <=,00#m. We seemed to avera"e 'ust over > <=,00#m which isn%t all that $ad. Considerin" the risin" fuel &rice cars li#e this that are a$le to maintain a "ood fuel consum&tion are more and more a&&ealin". Tech 7or a small entry level hatch the C20R comes &ac#ed with a &retty serious amount of tech. )he radio $uilt into the dash is C?=Radio=M08 ca&a$le. @ou also "et some controls on the steerin" wheel that allow chan"e volume and s#i& trac#s on the radio. All round you have electric windows and aircon is also standard. )hey do a neat dial3within3a3dial thin" with the aircon dials. @ou even "et &ar# distance control which may not $e as advanced as some cars $ut &urely delivers an audi$le si"nal when you%re a&&roachin" an o$'ect $ehind you.

Practicality /ur&risin"ly the C20R scores some nice &oints in the &ractical de&artment. )he rear seats fold down and then there are 2 fla&s that fold over the little "a& $etween the $oot and the folded down seats creatin" a smooth seamless loadin" area. (f the foldin" rear seats aren%t enou"h then you%ll $e "lad to hear that the rear seats have a reclinin" feature. )he seats slide forward sli"htly and then recline $ac#wards. !ice touch4 But the trum& card for this car is that it%s "ot ,62mm "round clearance which is a "ood 803B0mm more than cars "enerally in this se"ment. )o "ive it a $it of an /51 loo# GWM have attached s#id &lates on the front and the $ac# which is a really nice finish. Conclusion Great Wall Motors as itCs #nown really have &ulled out all the sto&s with their new cars. (n the C20R they%ve added a ton of e2tra "oodies that we%re 'ust not used to seein" in cars of this se"ment. /o when you consider that the C20R is a "ood R,03,+# chea&er than the e-uivalent 0olo 1ivo Ma22 $ut comes with a $unch more stuff it%s stac#in" u& to $e a "ood rival. )he $uild and -uality of the C20R is e2cellent too it%s not li#e the 0olo is DthatD much $etter. )he C20R carries off a fun#y fresh desi"n even comin" standard with cool ,;E Alloys and red $ra#e calli&ers. )he real test for GWM is how well these cars stac# u& in the lon" term we #now 1W%s last we%ll have to see how far we can "et in a GWM. (f ( was $uyin" a car in this se"ment and ( had the choice of the /te&way Ma22 and C20R my money would $e on the C20R without a dou$t $ut you can chec# more here.
