Already in August, Guangqi Honda also introduced us to its latest sports utility vehicle, ZR-V Zhizai. The estimated price of fuel version is between 159,900 and 195,900 yuan, and new car is also based on latest Honda architecture. structure, with its characteristic appearance, also has a very high popularity at beginning of market, and now latest hybrid version is about to debut and will also be equipped with fourth generation Honda i-MMD hybrid system, as ZR-V hybrid version will behave on this once?
I assume everyone is familiar with Honda's latest fourth generation i-MMD hybrid system. The combination of Tkinson hot cycle motor + motor is basically same as third generation i-MMD in terms of overall structure, in which maximum motor power is 105KW, maximum torque is 182Nm, motor power is 135KW, maximum torque is 315Nm.
However, this system is also equipped with a newly developed PCU intelligent power control unit and IPU intelligent power supply, so actual driving of new car will also be greatly improved, but it should be noted that current fourth generation i-MMD set is not a complete version After all, iconic 2AT gearbox has yet to wait for eleventh-generation Accord to be officially installed. It's also Honda's consistent styling.
In practice, you will find that performance of this brand new power has been greatly improved. First of all, logic of this system is mainly based on "electric drive", so at initial stage, new car is large. The car drives part of time in EV mode, engine does not directly interfere with power output, so first feeling you get from new car is that it is very similar to a "tram car", and thanks to fast response of engine itself, direct output torque and other characteristics, power characteristic of whole vehicle is very positive, basically it can be done when you step on it, and such better heel feel than 1.5t version.
In addition, a new car runs entirely on electricity most of time, and sometimes even when it reaches 80 km/h, it can still continue to run on electricity. Since battery capacity of HEV model itself is not large, you can still feel engine interfering with driving process, but fortunately, switching between powers is very gentle and smooth, mostly it will not bother you.
In high speed conditions, if you are willing to step on accelerator pedal, new car can still give you good power feedback, which is a huge improvement over previous generation system, and I personally think new model is more like on a car with a large volume of fuel, overall driving quality is very high.
The steering wheel grip is thick and comfortable, steering damping is also stable. The front McPherson + rear multi-link independent suspension is adopted, and overall adjustment is also quite mature. The suspension system can provide very good support and keep a certain road feeling, which can ensure car owners a lot of pleasant handling.
After a full day of test drive and development, new car still maintains a fuel consumption level of around 5 liters. Such a result can be called very good, and I believe that if it is used, its fuel consumption will definitely be able to hold a finger to a lower level.
Product Modeling Overview
For a new car, essentially hybrid version is basically same as fuel version, and this set of styling is also different from all current Honda products on sale. It's more sporty and avant-garde. main reason for the attention of young consumers.
In terms of details, ZR-V hybrid version is also equipped with a new straight front air intake grille with a waterfall and blue logo of exclusive hybrid car, etc. After adjustment, it also makes whole car more sporty. with black color scheme of our test drive car today, this feeling is basically Black Samurai modification style that young people like.
The shape of tail is also full-bodied, and there are not many changes compared to fuel version. However, it is commendable that new car still uses a dual-exhaust single-exhaust layout, which creates a feeling of movement in general. Still very Fine.
The interior design is also in line with Honda's latest family-style design that has been applied to many new vehicles, but hybrid version also has an exclusive shift mode like Honda's hybrid models. All models use an electronic push-button gearshift mechanism.
In addition, new vehicle is also equipped with a 10.1-inch floating screen and Honda CONNECT 3.0 intelligent interconnection system.
In addition, Honda SENSING super-sensing security system is also not missing, and it supports one-button opening. At same time, detailed driving information is displayed.
The one we shot today is also a top model. The new car is also equipped with a wireless mobile phone charging system, interior lighting, 10 airbags, a BOSE audio system, a power trunk, etc. The overall configuration level is also quite high, enough to meet needs of most consumers.
Based on Honda's latest platform architecture, ZR-V can be said to deliver outstanding performance in terms of handling, and with support for fourth-generation i-MMD hybrid system, it's even more powerful. It can be said that appearance of a dynamic version will make new car more productive, and I believe that such an SUV that is easy to drive, economical and has a strong sense of control will also become model of choice. a new generation of young consumers, but at a later stage still needs attention The most important thing is still question of price. After all, price of e:HEV has already started at 163,900 yuan. As for future price of this ZR-V, what is it? He still deserves our attention.
