DFSK, in partnership with Regal Autos, had launched the Glory 580 SUV in Pakistan in 2018. For the first couple of years, the vehicle was sold as a complete built-up unit (CBU) in Pakistan. However, a couple of months ago, the very first Glory 580 SUV rolled off the assembly line.
Following that promising development, the automaker has now introduced the premium variant of the vehicle in Pakistan, i.e., the Glory 580 Pro. It will have a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine. The engine generates 147 horsepower at 2000 RPM and 220 Newton-Meters of torque at 4000 RPM and sends all of that power to the front wheels via a 6-speed CVT automatic gearbox.
The Glory 580 Pro will, as standard, be loaded with convenience and safety features which are as follows:
- I-Talk intelligent voice command features
- Infinite starlight front grille to give the car a premium look
- Full LED headlights with DRLs
- Hammer pattern LED taillights with sequential turn signals
- LED fog lamps
- Electronically folding side-mirrors
- Panoramic sunroof
- Keyless entry and go
- Adjustable rear seats
- Electric power front seats
- Automatic wipers with rain sensors
- Automatic Climate Control with rear A/C vents
- 18″ alloy wheels
- Dual exhausts pipe
- 9″ floating infotainment touchscreen
- Infotainment controls on the steering
- Modern center console
- Cruise Control
- Modern instrument cluster design
- Vehicle Running Recorder
- Electronic Stability-Control Program (ESP)
- Hill Start Brake Assist
- Built-in security alarm
- Immobilizer System
- 4 SRS Airbags
- 360° camera
- Rear parking sensors
- Lavish leather lined interior
The Glory 580 Pro is relatively cheaper than its competition, as it will be priced at Rs. 4.4 million, making it the cheapest compact crossover SUV in the segment that comes with all of the premium features. It can be said that Sportage Alpha presents some competition in the price range. However, the base Sportage does not nearly have enough modern features to compete with the Glory 580 Pro.
As a comfortable, well-equipped family hauler, the DFSK Glory 580 Pro is an exciting prospect, and with the added features and quality, it is likely to give its competitors a run for their money.
