The Chery A5 is a compact car that was produced by the Chinese manufacturer Chery from 2006 to 2010. This car appears to take inspiration from the 2003-2007 Nissan Maxima, despite being unrelated. A facelifted variant of the A5 called the Cowin 3 was produced from 2010 to 2013.


The car is available with three engine options: a 1.6-litre engine, a 1.8-litre engine or a 2.0-litre engine. A hybrid version, named Chery A5ISG or A5BSG, is also produced.[4] It is considered to be the first Chinese-designed mass-production hybrid vehicle.[citation needed] It is equipped with safety features such as ABS, EBD and ESP.


All engines are ACTECO engines, designed in cooperation with the AVL engineering company, of Austria:
