The first images of the Chery TX concept have been released ahead of the small SUV's world premiere at next week's 2012 Beijing motor show.
Although the TX concept is just a design study at this stage, it showcases a sleek styling direction that is expected to inspire an all-new production crossover from the rapidly evolving marque.
The flowing, purposeful and muscular lines of the TX concept are a world away from the Chinese brand’s small SUV offering in Australia, the boxy and dated Chery J11.
Chery’s future SUVs promise to be significantly more advanced than its previous creations. Last month, the brand confirmed a joint venture with Jaguar Land Rover, allowing it to leverage the Brits’ research and development, technological and manufacturing know-how.
The TX SUV will be joined in Beijing by another more futuristic concept that Chery calls the Ant concept (pictured above).
Little is known about the unique concept other than that multiple Ants can physically link together in an arrangement that reportedly increases the mechanical army’s fuel efficiency.
