LUXGEN U6 TURBO 1 600x428 at Luxgen U6 Turbo: Specs and Details

Luxgen, in case you’ve forgotten, is a Taiwanese automaker trying to be the next Kia. They just unveiled a new vehicle called the U6, and it seems to be a cross between a SUV, a family sedan, and an MPV. They say the principles used to design and build this car are Beauty, Cool, and Innovation. It’s Taiwanese beauty and cool and innovation, mind you.  

The Luxgen U6 turbo may not seem very interesting at first, but it is a rather clever piece of kit. For one thing, it is overcompensating for its lack of charm and style with an endless list of features. Take safety features for instance. The U6 comes with DAS+ integrated driver alert system consists of FCW+ Forward Collision Warning System, PDS+ Pedestrian Detection System, LDWS+ Lane Departure Warning System, Active Eagle View+ 360 degree surround imaging system, Side View+ blind spot and rear view monitoring system and Night Vision+ high sensitivity night vision system.
