The V5 is a compact SUV built by Brilliance Auto in Shenyang, Liaoning. It is the first SUV model in the Zhonghua lineup. While having a shorter wheelbase, the V5 is based on the H530 sedan (the development codename for the V5 was "A3," that for H530 "A4"). The exterior styling, especially the double-kidney front grille, evokes the BMW X1 (BMW produces the X1 in China in partnership with Brilliance).

The V5 was launched and released at the 2011 Guangzhou Auto Show. The same powertrain options founded on the H530 were provided, which feature a Mitsubishi 1.6L engine or a Brilliance turbo 1.5L engine.

2012 sales of the V5 reached 36,391. Annual sales were 47,936 in 2013 and 32,782 in 2014.
