A Russian-made SUV produced as a mid-range model for teenage parties made its North American debut at the LA Auto Show.
The Bremach 4×4 was rolled out at the annual events last week, the first time it will be offered in the U.S. under the Fox Indian automaker’s name.
The company says the SUV was designed to appeal to young party-goers who want an SUV on the cheap.
The Bremach 4×4 is aimed at people between the ages of 15 and 19, with the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine providing 255 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. It’s rated for a 0-60 mph time of 5.9 seconds, with a top speed of 122 mph. A safety feature called Front & Rear Head Detection detects potential collisions.
The firm also offers a 4×2 model with as much as 335 horsepower and 432 pound-feet of torque, as well as four doors for easier customization.
“We wanted to offer a 4×4 vehicle for teens that is safe and fun-to-drive,” Fox Indian CEO Steve Yoshimura said in a statement. “The result is a low-cost SUV that has cool features at an affordable price.”
The company says it has delivered its first two Bremachs in Florida and California, where buyers can choose from four optional colors. The price per vehicle starts at $27,000.
Fox Indian Group is a Moscow-based company owned by Russian toy and collectible industrialist Dmitri Yezhov, who launched the first Fox Indian model called Starch to compete with the Flashman Lightgun in 2009.
