The 20th Guangzhou Auto Show will officially open on December 30, 2022. As final exhibition at end of year, many new cars will be released at this time. In this Guangzhou Auto Show, some sedan models on display deserve everyone's attention, and we clearly feel that our own brands are stronger than before, and their enthusiasm is also higher. We have also summarized some of Guangzhou Auto Shows worth paying attention to models, and first take real shots of them to see what their static characteristics are.
The appearance can be identified as a Changan model at a glance. The front panel uses currently popular dot matrix with digital style grille design, and it also implements borderless concept, so that front panel has a strong technology, sense, but also has a higher degree of recognition.
At same time, bumper design is quite aggressive, and combination of air intakes on both sides and leading edge also improves overall taste of performance. The headlights have a refined design. In addition to being integrated into front, more details have been added to interior. Thanks to combination of different light strips, details are relatively in place.
The side design is reminiscent of a hatchback coupe, but it's actually a standard sedan with sporty touches added to make it look younger. Performance in detail is also good, use of hidden door handles is surprising, and performance in technology configuration is on par with new energy vehicles.
The rear of car has a unique three-dimensional effect. The tail lights do not use a through-type design, but like headlights, they create a stronger texture due to internal luminous part. However, there are some reservations about chrome finish of exhaust pipe, this part can be equipped with a genuine exhaust system that looks much better than such a "fake".
The interior is based on principle of simplicity. The large central control screen is eye-catching and dashboard is smaller. It is believed that main functions should be controlled through a large screen.
In terms of power, Yidong is equipped with a 1.5T engine with a maximum output of 170 horsepower and a maximum torque of 260 Nm, which is matched with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
Comments: Changan Yida is a brand new model based on Ark architecture. The exterior and interior design uses new Changan family design. Sufficient sense of movement and technology can better meet needs of ordinary users.
FAW Toyota Crown SportCross
Toyota has unveiled two all-new Crown models this time around, with first being Crown SportCross crossover, and a sedan version will also be introduced. The appearance of Crown SportCross subverts image of Crown of past. First of all, Crown SportCross is positioned as a cross-border model, which is completely different from image of Crown luxury cars in past.
This is reflected in exterior design as well, with Crown SportCross looking younger overall. A more discerning design has been adopted on front, and lamps built into front also add a sense of future. The size of air intake grille is relatively large, and it is integrated with air intakes on both sides, making car look lower than it really is.
A hatchback design with matte black plastic wheel arches is standard on crossovers, while rear of car is finished in a two-tone contrasting color scheme for a more layered look. The taillights follow front, and through-type light bar is of good length, which can also give a good sense of technology after lighting.
The interior uses a relatively conventional design, with an asymmetrical layout similar to current Toyota models, but without overemphasizing intelligence. The combination of plenty of leather and soft materials continues to be crown jewel in terms of luxury, while also placing more emphasis on driving ambiance than previous models.
In terms of power, Crown imported to China in future will have two different powertrain configurations, including a 2.4T front-wheel drive hybrid version and a 2.5L hybrid all-wheel drive version. The 2.4T hybrid model is equipped with latest Toyota 2.4T turbocharged engine. The supercharged engine combined with motor has a maximum output of 255 kW and a peak torque of 551 Nm, which is quite powerful.
Commentary: Although Crown SportCross is called Crown, it can be considered a completely new model, and its design takes a more radical cross-border path. Perhaps it would be more acceptable if it wasn't called Crown. On contrary, usually displayed Crown Sedan is more acceptable, and its design and positioning is closer to previous Crown models, which seem to be more worthy of all expectations.
Compared to other Hongqi models, Hongqi H6 will be more sporty. The front panel still features familiar design of Hongqi family. The Hongqi logo, stretching from hood to China Open, is still quite imposing. The China Open uses Piano black. color scheme, with "X" shape elements on inside, combined with chrome decoration on outside, luxury is still an element that Hongqi cannot lose.
The interior design of light group also has many details. If you do not explain this beforehand, you may not be able to spot split headlight design first time. Matrix LED daytime running lights are already exciting enough, except for lights themselves. In addition to light, it also extends to both sides of China Open, and visual effect is quite shocking. Real headlights are located on both sides. When they are off, they look like air intakes. With sporty bumper design, sporty feel of front end is clearly improved.
The side profile has changed from stable style of past, and you can feel smoothness and dynamics of side profile, and two-tone body and shape are also better matched. The rear light also has a split design, and a through-type light bar is used at top. The real highlight is main light group, which also has a dot matrix style and follows front of car.
The exhaust system has a more radical design. The location of central exhaust and shape with two outlets make visual effect more shocking. Combined with piano black rear bumper, workmanship on this part is truly superb.
The interior is made in bright colors, but overall style remains same. The T-shaped layout of center console and large central control screen do not cause problems in use, and the materials used also reflect sufficient meaning. luxury.
In terms of power, the Hongqi H6 will be equipped with a 2.0T engine with a maximum power of 180kW, which is matched with an 8AT gearbox, but specific information has not yet been announced.
Comments: Hongqi H6 brings enough surprises, and design also shows good craftsmanship. It combines sports and Hongqi brand elements well. I look forward to its dynamic performance.
Special model: BMW M2
Clearly, BMW M2 is not a saloon, and that doesn't stop it from being centerpiece of this showroom. The new BMW M2 is also in spotlight at BMW booth. As latest M Power model, M2 lives up to expectations in every aspect. Design has continued to be tone of BMW in recent years. The huge central grille and air intake are not decoration, but more designed to meet heat dissipation and air intake requirements of S58 engine.
However, it is inevitable that new BMW M2 is a lap larger than old model, and effect of wide body is close to that of neighboring BMW M3. Forged wheels with 19-inch front wheels and 20-inch rear wheels are also quite impressive. The shape of rear of car is also very radical: in addition to oversized exhaust pipes on both sides with four outlets, air vents on both sides are also full of momentum.
The interior is much more civilized, with dual-screen design making interior more concise, and center console retaining some of physical buttons. The show car is equipped with a carbon fiber interior kit, center console and door panels are covered with carbon fiber, and even the paddles are also made of carbon fiber, which creates a strong combat atmosphere.
In terms of performance, new BMW M2 is equipped with a 3.0T engine with a maximum output of 460 horsepower and a maximum torque of 550 Nm. Models imported to China only have an 8-speed automatic transmission. , modification potential of S58 engine is quite huge, and in original state, it has excellent stability, and there is no problem even when driving on highway for a long time.
Comment: Compared to BMW M3/M4, new BMW M2 will be more compact, but this does not mean that it is as light as 1 M. Fully armed, new M2 weighs about 1.7 tons, which is not as heavy Too many positives. However, that doesn't stop it from being a rising performance car star. It still defends performance car territory with pure sportiness, although days like this won't last long.
In addition to models listed above, this time there will be many powerful models at Guangzhou Auto Show. From static performance of these models, it is not difficult to see that design of independent brand models is more mature than in past, and also bolder to use. From a market point of view, although SUV market share is growing, current domestic sedan market is still full of vitality. Judging by share of new cars at this Guangzhou Auto Show, number of new sedans even has an advantage. . And own brands also have a higher product replacement efficiency. Several models reviewed this time are new faces, which is enough to prove that manufacturers attach great importance to market. Another interesting phenomenon is performance cars at this year's motor show. Apart from "special guest" BMW M2 this time, models such as Honda Civic Type R and Lotus Emira also met expectations of car enthusiasts. This proves that there is still enough market for vehicles with fuel specifications in China. I don't know if there are models in this inventory that you like, you can chat with each other in comments area.
