Alright, let me give you a simple scenario. Ready? What if you’d be able to buy a 7-seater SUV right now? Wait… Let me try it one more time. What if you’d be able to buy a premium-level SUV while at an affordable cost?
Well, that is no longer a fantasy, but a new reality! DONGFENG SOKON MOTORS (DFSK) is a new player in the game, entering an already crowded arena in Nepal. How do they plan to compete with the likes of Kia Sportage, Jeep Compass, Hyundai Creta, Toyota Rush, and the others? Offer everything premium at half the price!
Kuzu Nepal Pvt. Ltd., the authorized dealers of DFSK in Nepal, is introducing the all-new DFSK Glory 580 in Nepal. It has been almost two months since its soft-launch, but nobody is paying DFSK any attention. And, that’s unfair! So, we want to talk about the all-new DSFK and all its nifty features.
DFSK Glory 580 comes in two different variants: manual and CVT transmission. If you haven’t read the title already, the DFSK Glory 580 price in Nepal is Rs. 62,80,000 for the manual transmission. Likewise, the DFSK Glory 580 price in Nepal is Rs. 69,99,500 for the CVT transmission.
DFSK Glory 580 Overview
DFSK Glory 580 is powered by 1.5L SFGT Turbocharged Engine with a 1498cc displacement. It can generate a max power of 134.102HP! Furthermore, it comes with a fuel capacity of 58 liters with an average mileage at 7.4kmpl.
Talking about the suspension setup, you get a MacPherson Independent Front Suspension and Torsion Beam Rear Suspension. Moreover, you get dual disc brakes on both front and rear wheels with ABS.
Unfortunately, it only comes as Front-Wheel Drive with no 4WD option. However, that shouldn’t be a major turn-off as DFSK Glory 580 comes with “Snow Mode”. This mode kind of acts as a temporary 4WD for slippery road scenario and intra-city off-roading.
DFSK Glory 580 Styling
Talking about the styling, Glory 580 is a very attractive SUV. You get a sports style front design with the chromed front grille. Moreover, you will also get a lion-shaped headlamp with DRLs. Likewise, you get stylish alloy wheels and a SUNROOF!
No joke, DFSK literally gives you a sunroof at this price point. In comparison, you can only get a sun-roof on a vehicle priced way above Rs. 1 Crore. This is why DFSK Glory 580 deserves attention.
DFSK Glory 580 is available in five different color variants: White, Brown, Red, Blue, and Black.
DFSK Glory 580 Features
This is the part that you should focus on. Let’s list out all the “premium” features in Glory 580. Although, please keep in mind that all the listed features are included in the Rs. 62.80 Lakhs price tag. The number of features on offer at that price is simply amazing!
DFSK Glory 580 comes with features like Delicate Leather Interiors, Multi-Functional Power Steering, Intelligent Central Console, Large 2-Seats to 7-Seats Adjustable Luggage Space, Push Start Button, and so much more.
Additionally, it also comes with Intelligent Key and in-built Vehicle Running Recorder (Dashcam) which is perhaps among the segment-first features.
Talking about the safety features, it is pretty much the same story as the features. You will get ABS, Electronic Parking Brake (EPS), Rear Sensors, 5-Star Safety Vehicle Body, Auto Crash Unlocking, Four Air Bags, etc.
Look, let me put it this way. If I were to talk about all the features in the DFSK Glory 580, we’ll be here all day. So, if you are curious to find out more about the 7seater SUV, please feel free to visit the DFSK Showroom at Pani Pokhari, Lazimpat.

Should You Buy DFSK Glory 580 in Nepal?
Hell Yes! Are you kidding me? Clearly, it has so much to offer for that price point. Moreover, I know for the fact that people have settled for far less. Don’t believe me? Consider Kia Sportage with a starting price of Rs. 69.9 Lakhs. Despite being priced as much as a top-variant Glory 580, Kia Sportage base variant does not even have a freaking fog lamp!!! Even if I let that one slide, that same variant comes with halogen headlamps. I mean, that is so unfair!
If popular car brands pull stupid stuff like this, DFSK deserves more attention. I know, DFSK is a new brand, but they are trying. Yes, I know that being a new brand is the only disadvantage. And, people don’t usually leap head-on towards a new brand. But give it a chance!
Moreover, DFSK Nepal knows it is a new brand. So, in order to make people put more trust in the “DFSK” name, Glory 580 comes with a 7-years or 150,000km warranty on the engine.
In conclusion, I haven’t been able to put complete details about the DFSK Glory 580 in this article. Well, it’s not because I got lazy, there’s just so much to talk about! But we are planning to do a Full Review very soon. So, all the details we’ve missed, it will be included in that review video.
