Why 2021 Hongqi H9?
One may question the exterior aesthetics, as the H9 comes across as a mishmash of design elements.

That said, the instruments are virtually unreadable on bright sunny days as the digitized dash panel reflects a lot of glares.
Hongqi’s designers have made liberal use of glossy piano-black trim on the dash and center console, but the faux brushed aluminum strip that’s positioned alongside looks distinctly naff.
Rear seat space is vast, with acres of legroom and shoulder-room, and adequate headroom for anyone under 1.83m tall (6ft in the old scale).
There’s a control panel on the center-rear arm rest, allowing rear-seat dwellers to adjust the positioning of their seat, and even slide forward the front passenger seat to give themselves more legroom.
