Exciting news for SUV enthusiasts and budget-conscious drivers in Australia! The 2024 Chery Omoda 5 small SUV lineup has just been expanded with a new base model, the Omoda 5 FX, which comes at a significantly reduced price. This new variant is now one of the most affordable new SUVs available on the Australian market.

Price and Affordability

The Omoda 5 FX is now on sale at an attractive price of $27,990 drive-away. This is $6,000 cheaper than Chery's previous entry-level variant, the BX, which was priced at $33,990 drive-away. With this new pricing, the Omoda 5 FX positions itself as a highly competitive option among small SUVs in Australia.

Comparative Pricing

In the realm of affordable SUVs, the Omoda 5 FX is now cheaper than several popular models, including:

  • Mitsubishi ASX automatic ($28,490 drive-away)
  • Kia Seltos ($31,990 drive-away)

However, it remains slightly more expensive than:

  • GWM Haval Jolion ($26,990 drive-away)
  • MG ZS ($22,990 drive-away)
  • MG ZST ($25,490 drive-away)

Features and Specifications

To achieve this lower price point, the Omoda 5 FX has undergone some adjustments compared to the BX model. Notable differences include:

  • Removed Features: The FX loses the 18-inch alloy wheels, full synthetic leather-look upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-speaker Sony sound system, and LED headlights. It also omits acoustic front door glass, soft-touch upper interior door panels, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, wireless phone charging, and a 12-volt socket in the boot.
  • New Features: The FX is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, fabric seats with synthetic leather-look bolsters, single-zone air conditioning, a six-speaker Sony stereo, and halogen projector headlights.

Despite these changes, the FX retains several key features from the BX, including:

  • A 10.25-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • A 10.25-inch digital instrument display
  • A power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Keyless entry/start
  • All BX safety features

Engine and Performance

Under the hood, the Omoda 5 FX is powered by the same 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine found in the BX and EX models. This engine delivers 108kW of power and 210Nm of torque, paired with a continuously-variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Updated Pricing for Other Models

Since the announcement of the 2024 Omoda 5 lineup in January 2024, there have been some price adjustments for other variants:

  • Omoda 5 BX: $33,990 drive-away (a reduction of $500)
  • Omoda 5 GT AWD: $40,990 drive-away (a reduction of $500)

However, it's worth noting that the BX is still $1,000 more expensive compared to its MY23 pricing.
