The number of new SUVs released at this Guangzhou Auto Show seems to be less than in previous years, but Guangzhou Auto Show also has a lot of new vehicles to look out for. Interestingly, some of heavyweight models at this Guangzhou Auto Show aren't all of popular brands, but some generally relatively low-profile models have opened up their own major facelifts. Below we have selected several models of heavy SUVs presented at Guangzhou Auto Show, all of which have a high degree of relevance and have merits worthy of expectation.
Mazda unveiled new CX-50 compact SUV at Guangzhou Auto Show, which can be considered successor to CX-5. The look can make a stunning impression. The front end features Mazda's latest design elements. The size of headlights has been reduced, but as overall shape has become more capable, it looks more energetic.
The design of front bumper has also become sportier, air intakes on both sides are quite impressive, and lower part has a silver skid plate to reduce roughness caused by matte plastic material. The design of China Open is also full of features. The overall size has increased compared to past, and more common through-type elements are not used, but a black piano frame is added to make bezel more three-dimensional. .
The side profile has become more functional, from more rounded lines of past to more muscular lines that look more athletic. However, details are relatively traditional: there are no hidden door handles familiar today, nor a radical rim design that is more in line with traditional aesthetic.
The design of tail is unexpectedly radical. The 3D design of rear light is different from existing models, and internal details are also in place. I think this will give a good effect after flare. A pair of large airflow channels is also a rare design at same level. In addition to repeating front, it also effectively improves feeling of movement, but there is no real ventilation performance.
The show car did not show interior design, as for overseas version of model, in general, it is relatively traditional, without excessive pursuit of technology, with more emphasis on luxury and high-end. However, such a design seems too conservative, especially in domestic market where large screens are flooded, it is not known whether such a lightweight design can be recognizable by consumers.
In terms of power, since CX-50 uses CX-30 platform, two power systems are basically common. However, domestic version's power plant is very different from foreign version's power plant, and main foreign 2.5T engine will not appear. It is expected to be powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0/2.5L engine and a related hybrid model will also be launched.
Comments: The Mazda CX-50 has a satisfying performance all around, which also fits in with Mazda's key message of not going down conventional path. Perhaps Mazda models have not been updated for a long time. This time, CX-50 has a relatively high degree of attention High, if there is a reasonable price, it can have a good market performance.
Wei Pai Blue Mountain
Wei's new medium-to-large SUV is officially called Lanshan, and its flagship positioning can be felt already in name, and its shape also belongs to high-end segment. The appearance adopts a completely different design style, front fascia adopts a simple design language, closed central grille looks more comfortable, and trapezoidal air intake grille makes front fascia more imposing. The headlights have a split layout and LED daytime running lights are very thin. The design extending to fenders makes front of car complete, and illuminated headlights are combined with air intakes on both sides, which is very recognizable.
The sheer size of his body is felt from side, and snowflake rims also match well with body tone.
The rear of car looks well-structured, thru-type taillights have a large area, and main light groups on both sides extend to both sides, matching style of front. But otherwise, there are not many design highlights, overall look is relatively simple, and chrome finish of exhaust is not bad, which corresponds to positioning of model itself.
There is still relatively little information about show car, and interior is not shown in its entirety. At present, it is only known that it can use a hybrid system consisting of a 1.5t engine and 3 motors. The official figures are more attractive, with a maximum power of 380 kW, peak torque of 933 Nm, and acceleration from 100 km to 100 km can be done in 4.9 seconds.
Commentary: This time, after Wei Pai presented design to public, it seems to have had a wonderful effect. Compared with shape of previous ad image, it is more acceptable after formal makeover has already been done, and performance of data is also worth waiting for.
The Haval H-DOG still retains its recognizable design, and its styling will be more hardcore. The exterior retains design elements of a large dog. The round headlights are quite retro, and interior uses LED light sources. Details You can also get a feel for manufacturer's intentions on screen, for example shape of dog bone in center of headlight is a nice Easter egg.
The design of China Open highlights elements of electrification. The pixel-shaped interior design is paired with chrome material to make front more textured. The car logo also uses blue as a background color. The rest of details also make most of hardcore styling, such as protruding bumper and added bottom guard, which match SUV look in look.
The side design is relatively compact, and waistline is raised as much as possible to show enough muscles. The wheel arches are studded, combined with long suspension travel and ground clearance it really has an off-road flavor, but wheel rim shape is a little too trendy if replaced with a wilder design, I think it would be more in line with tone of floor model.
The tail design also uses classic off-road elements: round taillights as main body and offshoots at top, adding a retro touch while maintaining a stylish design.
The interior design has become more distinctive, and sense of technology is quite appropriate. The combination of an LCD instrument panel and a large central control screen is very common, but interplay of rigid design elements makes the interior more unique.
In terms of power, new car is equipped with a unique DHT two-speed transmission, which theoretically has best high-speed power performance, and data is also relatively impressive. The 1.5t PHEV hybrid system equipped with it, 240kW power and 530N peak torque .m, providing a power reserve on pure electricity up to 100 km.
Comments: Lately hardcore has become a very popular element. HAVAL also added more wildness to H-DOG. While it's not necessarily good off-road, PHEV drivetrain and hardcore looks are enough for H-DOG. attention.
Honestly, this Guangzhou Auto Show gave people a "hide and fill" feeling. Many of heavyweight models originally planned didn't show up for various reasons, but upside is that everyone took notice of some restrained strengths. , Models such as few mentioned above. As with sedans, enthusiasm of in-house brands is still to be commended. The quantity and quality of new cars produced are quite good. Two models such as Lanshan and H-DOD are new vehicles that many consumers are looking forward to. As for Mazda, due to weakness of her peers, she has become "responsibility for movement" of compact SUVs at this car show. Although salon is not on display, it has a good flow of people.
