[YesAuto Connected Travel] Fengxing T5 EVO is the first model of Dongfeng Fengxing brand after the renewal. It targets young consumers and positions itself as a compact SUV. In addition to the recognizable appearance of “for others to see”, Chinese “loose generations” are more concerned about their own feelings-the environment of the cockpit and the convenient services provided by the vehicles during driving. In this regard, popular How is T5 EVO doing? Let's take a look together.
What can we expect from a 100,000-class SUV?
Since the beginning of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, such a dual-screen design has gradually been adopted by more and more models. While taking into account the sense of high-level, it is also full of science and technology. Although overseas brands are far inferior to Chinese brands in terms of car and machine functional services, there are still two brushes in hardware design. I hope that one day Chinese brands can also lead the way in hardware design.
We decided to put WeChat and Mini Programs in the car
In terms of system, Dongfeng Fengxing T5 EVO adopts the Future Link 4.0 intelligent connection system integrated with Tencent's TAI car connection solution . Since you are in the Tencent camp, you will definitely be able to enjoy some of Tencent's “preferential treatment.”
The “small program” we are talking about has a scientific name in this system, called “car small program”. The ones that are currently online include WeChat (more on this later), road book, smart refueling, food search, story listening and so on .
Regarding the “car-mounted applet”, what we need to understand is: What are the advantages or differences of this format compared to appearing in the car system in the form of a single App?
First of all, friends who often use WeChat and Alipay applets may know that the applets are light in size and short in development cycle, which is convenient for quick launch and hot updates . In addition, many online services in market segments that have been newly created in the past two years have given up on developing apps and have appeared directly in the form of small programs.
Rapid development and hot updates are certainly the biggest benefits of “car mini programs”, and the “dividends” of its continuous development can be enjoyed by car owners. Of course, in addition to this, in-vehicle applets are also more convenient to adapt and utilize system resources. After all, App was born in the early days of the Internet, and there have been many chaos in the process of development and growth. The new platform absorbs past experience and has a set of standardized development tools and controls developers from the beginning, which will inevitably make the services on the platform better. standard.
The current problem with in-vehicle applets is-on the one hand, the number is not enough, on the other hand, quite a few services have not been adapted to voice control, and it is not recommended to use them during driving. In short, the direction is good, and there is a long way to go.
In addition to the small program, “car WeChat” is also an important feature that I have to say. The popular T5 EVO can call out the car WeChat by voice or steering wheel buttons.
In addition to using the steering wheel buttons, the on-board WeChat supports voice control almost all the way , which makes it unnecessary to turn your head to look at the screen when replying to messages during driving, and the operation is safer.
Our survey last year showed that more than half of consumers actually have the need to check WeChat on the road, so on the premise of ensuring driving safety, how to meet the needs of consumers as much as possible, the car WeChat gave a return Good answer sheet.
Let’s talk about some “basic skills”
Full text summary
As the first model after the rebranding, the Fengxing T5 EVO was obviously placed high hopes by Dongfeng Fengxing. Under cost constraints, good cockpit hardware is given, and a certain aesthetic is maintained. In terms of software, relying on Tencent's TAI system, it not only got the huge content resources of Iqut, the on-board WeChat, which is almost the only domestic communication tool, and the on-board applet with unlimited expansion possibilities. The combination of software and hardware is worthy of praise. (Photo/Zheng Xu from the home of the car)
