Chery Omoda 5 pricing and models
There are two models in the line-up, the entry-level $29,900 Chery Omoda 5 BX, and the $32,900 Chery Omoda 5 EX we are driving here. All pricing is plus on-roads.
This pricing places the Chery Omoda 5 in the heart of the compact SUV segment, close to sales heavyweights like the MG ZS, Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-30, Toyota Corolla Cross and new Subaru Crosstrek.
Chery’s trying to overcome the lack of buyer awareness and knowledge about the brand with a lengthy list of standard equipment.
It includes an impressive tech display with two 10.25-inch digital screens mounted on the dashboard – one for infotainment, and the other for instrumentation such as the speedo.
Wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto are standard, and there is also wireless smartphone charging. There are dual USB-A points, albeit on the far side of the centre console to the driver. But you don’t get satellite navigation or a digital radio band.
Six-way powered front seats are trimmed in synthetic leather, while an eight-speaker Sony sound system, dual-zone climate control, a power tailgate, a sunroof, and multi-coloured 18-inch alloy wheels are all included.
Chery’s backed up their value pricing for the Omoda 5. with a long seven-year warranty and capped price servicing program that adds up to just over $2,000 for seven workshop visits.
However, the service intervals are a short 10,000km (or 12 months – whichever comes first), which means you’ll likely be headed into your dealer twice a year.
