The C37 is a low-cost van manufactured by DFSK (Dongfeng Sokon), a vehicle maker founded on June 27, 2003, by Dongfeng Motor and Chongqing Sokon Industry. It was released on September 21, 2009.

Sitting on a 3050mm wheelbase, the C37 is larger and more comfortable than the previous K and V series of DFSK microvans (K07, K17, V27, V29 etc.). Three seating arrangements are offered: 2+2+3, 2+2+2+3, and 2+3+3+3. With a low starting price, the C37 misses some basic features on low trim levels such as front fog lamps, air conditioner, and airbags.

In the second half of 2012, DFSK also launched a cargo-van variant of the C37, the C35, which had 2 or 5 seats and replace the windows in the back with steel plates. The C35 was withdrawn from the market in late 2013.
