[YesAuto In-Depth Investigation] After the new GL8 was launched, the GL8 commercial wagon with slight modifications based on the old GL8 was also launched. The price of the GL8 commercial wagon is much cheaper than the 2.0T new model. This number is the same as before. After the previous generation GL8 was launched in 2011, the GL8 model based on the old Lu Zun and using the new powertrain was launched to capture the market of more than 200,000 and less than 280,000. I believe everyone can see it on the road. This kind of old Lu Zun GL8 is very common. Now that the commercial wagon is on the market, you can imagine that the market must be very hot. So this time, let’s talk about the GL8 commercial wagon and its Competitive models.

GL8 has always been positioned to be more business-oriented, and now the rounded shape and spacious space can also take care of some households. Therefore, this article compares the home-oriented Odyssey and Alison and the commercial Chase G10, and the selected models have a certain degree of overlap in price.

●GL8 Commercial Wagon

The price of the GL8 commercial vehicle has been relatively strong since its launch, which further reflects the market demand for this car. In terms of sales, the sales volume of GL8 has always been the leader of the joint venture brand MPV, so we visited 4S in Beijing. shop.

We came to the first Buick 4S store. There was a commercial vehicle on display in the store. After inquiring, the commercial vehicle needs to add 10,000 yuan to the car, decorated with film, foot pads, etc. If you choose to replace it, The replacement subsidy is 6,000 yuan. If you choose to buy a car with a loan, there is no special preferential policy on the down payment and interest. The loan handling fee is about 4,000 yuan, but whether it is a full-priced car purchase, a loan for a car, or a replacement, you need to pay This ten thousand yuan decoration. Only some colors are available in this shop, and the car booking cycle is about one month.

After that, we came to the second Buick 4S store. The sales introduction said that buying a GL8 commercial vehicle requires a 10,000 yuan decoration, but there are some preferential policies in terms of loans. If the down payment is 30% in 18 installments, interest is free, and the loan procedures are The fee is 3500 yuan. If you choose to replace, the replacement subsidy is also 6000 yuan, if you use a seven-seater car for replacement, the replacement subsidy reaches 10,000 yuan. Just like the first store, no matter how you buy the car, you need to buy an extra RMB 10,000 for decoration. At present, there is only a low-profile car in the store, and the rest of the configuration needs to be ordered. The cycle is about one and a half months.

In addition, we also consulted 4S stores in Guangzhou and Shanghai, the situation is as follows:

Random investigation of GL8 commercial vehicle in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou
city Existing car Booking cycle Preferential situation
Beijing Part of the configuration or color 1-2 months

Add 10,000 yuan for decoration

(6000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Shanghai Part of the configuration or color About 1 month

No discount

(6000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Guangzhou Part of the configuration or color About 1 month

No discount

(6000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Through understanding, Shanghai and Guangzhou do not buy cars with decorations. They buy cars at a fair price. Some 4S stores in Shanghai also mentioned that you can give you a year of commercial insurance when you buy a car. Guangzhou says that it is possible if you buy a car. A small amount of cash concessions can be negotiated. On the whole, the sales of GL8 commercial wagons have stabilized day by day. The current situation of the 4S stores in the three places is not sufficient, and the car booking cycle is more than one month. If there are friends who plan to buy a car in the near future, you need to be patient and so on.

● Odyssey

Odyssey has been on the market for a long time, and the IKEA style of IKEA has also been recognized by many consumers. Next, we visited two 4S stores to see what the Odyssey market is now.

We came to the first 4S shop. The sales consultant said that the discount amount for each model of the Odyssey ranges from 14,000 yuan to 17,000 yuan. There are fewer cars, and there are a few white cars. The rest of the colors need to wait about half a month. If you choose replacement, the replacement subsidy is 5,000 yuan, the down payment of 125,000 yuan can enjoy the one-year interest-free policy, and the loan handling fee is 2,000 yuan.

Next, we came to the second 4S store. According to the sales consultant, the Odyssey offers ranging from 13,000 yuan to 15,000 yuan. The smart version has existing cars, and the rest of the configuration needs to be ordered. The car pickup cycle is 1 Around the month, the replacement subsidy is also 5,000 yuan. If you choose a loan, there is also a one-year interest-free policy, with a down payment of 30% and a handling fee of 2,000 yuan.

The situation of 4S stores in Guangzhou and Shanghai is as follows:

Odyssey Random Investigation of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou
city Existing car Booking cycle Preferential situation
Beijing Part of the configuration or color 0.5-1 month

14,000 yuan-17,000 yuan cash discount

(6000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Shanghai Part of the configuration or color About 1 month

10,000 yuan cash discount

(5000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Guangzhou Part of the configuration or color About 1 month

14,000 yuan cash discount

(5000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Through understanding, the preferential situation in Shanghai is a little less than that in Beijing and Guangzhou. It is a cash discount of 10,000 yuan. One of the 4S stores told me that if you choose to replace, the replacement subsidy will be slightly different according to the replacement model. In addition, One said that it was a subsidy of 5,000 yuan for consumption coupons to be used for repairs and maintenance in the store. Two 4S stores did not have enough existing cars. One said that they had to wait for the car for 3 months, and the other had a car booking cycle of 1 About a month. The 4S store in Guangzhou stated that the replacement subsidy is a cash subsidy of 5,000 yuan, and the loan can also enjoy an interest reduction of 5,000 yuan. The discount for all models is 14,000 yuan. The sales consultant revealed that if you go to the store to discuss in detail, you will pay back on the price. It can be a little bit more discounted, but the margin will not be too great.

●Ailisent

As the brother model of the Odyssey, Alicense is not much different from the Odyssey in terms of styling, but its sales performance in the market is not as good as that of the Odyssey. After understanding the Odyssey's market preferential situation, let's take a look at the situation of Alicense.

The sales consultant of the first 4S shop said that if you mention the car this month, the discount for all models is only 4,000 yuan. If you order the car now, if you mention the car next month, the discount amount will be 8,000 yuan. Asked the reason, the sales consultant said The quota given by manufacturers this month is relatively small, and next month it will be very abundant. If you choose to replace, you can enjoy a replacement subsidy of 3,000 yuan. There are no preferential policies for loan purchases, and the loan handling fee is 2,000 yuan. The current car situation in the store is not too abundant. The sales consultant suggested that it is the best deal to order the car now and pick up the car next month.

Then we came to the second Dongben 4S store. The sales consultant said that the current discount for the whole series is 6,000 yuan, and if you replace it, you can subsidize 3,000 yuan. Now there is no car in the shop, and the car booking cycle is 1 month.

We also consulted 4S stores in Shanghai and Guangzhou as follows:

Random survey on the situation in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou
city Existing car Booking cycle Preferential situation
Beijing Part of the configuration or color 1 month

4,000 yuan-8,000 yuan cash discount

(3000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Shanghai No car 1-2 months

6000 yuan-7000 yuan cash discount

(No replacement subsidy)

Guangzhou No car About 1 month

7000 yuan cash discount

(2000 yuan replacement subsidy)

Through investigation, we found that Alison’s current car inventory in these three cities is very small, and it usually requires car reservations. The cycle ranges from 1 to 2 months. The cash concession is not too strong. A company in Shanghai The 4S shop said that if it is replaced, the old car needs to be driven over and evaluated before it can calculate how much replacement subsidy it has. The other one said there is no replacement subsidy. On the whole, Alishen’s preferential policies have not changed much in the past two months, all of which are around several thousand yuan, and there are no other preferential policies.

● Chase G10

The Chase G10 is the largest of the four models in this article, and it is also a Chinese brand. Chase’s 4S store in Beijing is much less than the other three brands. Let’s take a look at the Beijing area. Market preferences.

The first 4S shop stated that the top-fitting model offers a discount of 2,000 yuan, and the remaining models are 4,000 yuan. There is no replacement subsidy. If the down payment is 30% for 12 instalments or 40% for 18 instalments, the interest is free. The current car is not sufficient, and some There are a few existing cars in color and configuration.

After that, we came to the second 4S store. The location of this 4S store is not particularly easy to find. After arriving at the store, the sales consultant said that the discount for all Chase G10 series is not large, which is 3,000 yuan. If you are sure to buy a car, you can still Talk about it again. There is no replacement subsidy, there are only a small number of existing cars, and there are also no preferential policies for loans.

Similarly, we also consulted 4S stores in Shanghai and Guangzhou, the situation is as follows:

Chase G10 Random Survey on Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou
city Existing car Booking cycle Preferential situation
Beijing Part of the configuration or color 1 month

2000 yuan-4000 yuan cash discount

Shanghai Part of the configuration or color About 1 month

3000 yuan cash discount

Guangzhou Part of the configuration or color About 1 month

2000 yuan cash discount

Originally, I thought that Chase G10 will have a larger discount in Shanghai, but most of the sales consultants of 4S stores ask to go to the store to discuss the price. The price cannot be disclosed on the phone. Only a few offer a discount of 3,000 yuan, and the current car situation is not sufficient. , The booking time ranges from 3 weeks to more than 1 month. 4S shops in Guangzhou area offer a discount of 2,000 yuan for all models, but there is a larger discount for a top-of-the-line show car. Because the show time is relatively long, the discount rate reaches 20,000 yuan. If you order a car, there is no Such a margin of preference.

●Summary:

After investigation, GL8 commercial coaches are generally sold at a price increase in Beijing, but there is no need to increase prices in Shanghai and Guangzhou, and it is revealed that there is a small cash discount if it is confirmed that the car is purchased. Odyssey's preferential power is the largest among these four models, generally more than 10,000 yuan. Alisson's preferential strength is also very stable, but the strength is not as large as that of the Odyssey. The Chase G10 has the smallest discount, and there is no replacement subsidy, and the financial sales policy does not have many discounts. However, the mid-range model can be upgraded to a 10-seater model with an additional 3,000 yuan, so that it can be yellowed, which avoids lottery or auction restrictions. License policy, only yellow card medium-sized passenger cars require a B1 driver’s license or higher to drive, and tolls and parking fees are more expensive than ordinary blue-label passenger cars, and yellow card medium-sized passenger cars within 10 years of annual inspection are required to be inspected every year , After 10 years, the vehicle will be inspected every 6 months, and it will be scrapped for more than 20 years.

After understanding the market conditions of these four cars, let’s talk about the configuration comparison. First of all, through the popularity of models on our website, we found that the GL8 25S premium model is very popular. Let’s take a look at this car and competing products. Configuration comparison of models at the same price.

●Compared with Odyssey

The price of the Odyssey and the top-equipped GL8 commercial vehicle is similar in price to the Zhixiang version priced at 266,800 yuan. This model is at the low-to-medium level in the car series, but this model is relatively hot, higher than the mid-to-high-end models. There are many, let’s take a look at the configuration comparison between Odyssey 2.4L Smart Edition and GL8 25S Premium.

The Odyssey Smart Enjoy Edition is a mid-to-lower model in the car series, but it is also in the middle of the configuration performance compared with the GL8 business travel car roof, and it is higher than the GL8 in terms of lighting configuration and air conditioning. In terms of price, the Odyssey’s terminal discount is between 14,000 and 17,000 yuan, and the GL8 also needs to add 10,000 yuan for decoration. The price difference between inside and outside is a lot, so in terms of configuration and price alone, the Odyssey’s price/performance ratio is better than GL8 is higher.

●Compared with Alison

I chose the Ailishen 2.4L fashion version and the GL8 25S premium model for comparison. The fashion version is priced at 275,800 yuan, which is the mid-range model in the car series. The most popular model in the Ailishen car series is the lowest. And the highest match, but because of the price, I still chose the fashion version for comparison.

The configuration performance of the Ailishen Fashion Edition is better than that of the GL8 25S noble type. The panoramic sunroof is very attractive. The advantages of lighting and air conditioning are still great. The market terminal price is about 6000 yuan. The price-performance ratio is more prominent from the GL8's 10,000 decorations.

●Compared with SAIC Maxus G10

The price range of SAIC Maxus G10 is between 133,800 yuan and 269,800 yuan, which is a relatively large range, so this time I chose the top model-2.0T automatic flagship version to compare with the GL8 25S premium model. In fact, the configuration is not comparable. We know that the SAIC Maxus G10 wins the ticket, and the biggest disadvantage of the G10 is the driving texture and brand recognition. However, let's first take a look at the difference in the configuration.

The configuration of the flagship version is indeed very rich, the second row of aviation seats is very good, the comfort and luxury of the ride are undoubtedly the best among these four cars, but in terms of brand recognition, it is worse than the three competitors. In the end, SAIC Maxus G10 has not been very strong in the market. A discount of 2,000 yuan is better than nothing.

●Summary:

GL8 has no advantage in configuration in front of the three opponents. From a comparative perspective, SAIC Maxus G10 has the advantage, especially the second-row seats of the G10 flagship version. The configuration is very rich. Passengers in the second row I should enjoy it very much. Odyssey and Alison’s models in this price range are all mid-range or mid-to-low range, and the comfortable configuration is enough. It is worth mentioning that these four cars are equipped with electric side sliding doors, which is important for MPVs. The car model is still crucial.

To talk about what is the most important MPV model, I think it must be the space for riding. After all, the main purpose of this level of model is to carry people. The space of GL8 has always been the benchmark of this level. Let’s take a look at the four models. How does the space behave.

●GL8

The wheelbase of the GL8 has been maintained at 3088mm, and the new model has not changed much. However, the wheelbase of 3088mm has ensured the comfort of the ride when the seven seats are full, and when full, the space in the trunk is also large enough. Some luggage is not a problem.

● Odyssey

The wheelbase of the Odyssey is 2900mm, and the seating space is also very satisfying. The most important thing is that the seat flexibility is very high. The second row of seats can be adjusted in a wide range of front and rear, and can be adjusted left and right, which is very convenient for daily use. , But in the case of full staff, the space in the trunk is not too much, only some luggage such as cabins or backpacks can be placed.

●Ailisent

As a brother model of the Odyssey, Elysson has the same size on the wheelbase, 2900mm, and the flexibility of the seat is also very high, but the shortcomings are also the same, the trunk space is not large in the fully occupied state, if it is full If 7 people drive a long distance, the storage of 7 people’s luggage is indeed a problem.

●SAIC Maxus G10

The 3198mm wheelbase of the Chase G10 can be said to be the longest among these four cars. The long wheelbase undoubtedly brings a lot of space. The spaces in the second and third rows support forward and backward movement, and are In the state, the trunk space is also the largest of these four cars, and the practicality is very high.

●Summary:

The seating space of these four cars is no problem. In terms of seats, SAIC Maxus G10 has the most complete aviation seats. The seats of Odyssey and Alison have the highest flexibility, and the performance of GL8 in terms of seats is very mediocre. In the comparison of the performance of the trunk space in the fully loaded state, SAIC Maxus G10 has the best performance thanks to the long wheelbase, followed by the GL8, while the Odyssey and Alison have almost no trunk space in the fully loaded state. .

●Competitiveness analysis:

●GL8

The GL8 commercial vehicle is divided into three configurations. The low-end models have fewer comfort configurations. The recommended model is the top model. Compared with the other models, it is also equipped with front/rear head airbags. The safety configuration is very complete and the comfort configuration There are also electric trunks, electric adjustment and heating of the front seats and electric folding of the rearview mirrors, etc., combined with a price difference of 20,000 yuan for each configuration, so the top model is recommended.

● Odyssey

   The Odyssey is divided into 7 models. The recommended model is in the mid-range of the car series. Compared with the low-profile models, the Zhixiang version has more front and rear head airbags, cruise control, leather steering wheel, automatic headlights, LED headlights and rear Comfortable configurations such as independent air conditioners are very practical configurations, and the price of high-end models is a bit too expensive, so the smart version is cost-effective.

●Ailisent

   Alison is divided into 5 configurations. The recommended model is the mid-range model in the car series. The high-end model is a bit expensive. The fashion version has more leather seats, heated front seats and electric folding of the rearview mirror than the comfort version. For a commercial MPV, leather seats are still necessary, and seat heating is also very suitable for friends in the north.

● Chase G10

   There are many models of Chase G10, and the main sales force is also less than 200,000 models. The recommended model this time is the top model. This model has a very rich comfort configuration, which is also equipped with high-tech such as panoramic camera and parallel assistance. Configuration, it is worth mentioning that the second row uses aviation seats, and there are ten-way electric adjustment, two sets of seat memory, seat massage and other functions. The footrest also supports electric adjustment. The function of this seat can be described as Very complete. From size to positioning, Chase G10 is more to deal with some business needs, and has fewer home attributes for individual consumers. However, compared with the GL8, which is also oriented to business needs, it is significantly lower in grade. Odyssey and Aili Gentry has stronger household attributes.

◆Full text summary:

Through the comparison of market preference, configuration and space, I believe everyone has a lot of understanding of these four MPVs. Judging from the performance in the market, I think it will take some time for the GL8 commercial vehicle to end its fare increase policy. If the car can be offered at a fair price, combined with the GL8’s reputation and space advantages, the price/performance ratio is still very good; the current Odyssey The discount situation is very good. You can buy a car at this stage. If you need to book a car, the car booking cycle is not long and acceptable. The discount in the market is relatively stable. The discount in April is also around 6,000 yuan. Speaking of 8,000-10,000 yuan and preferential treatment, I think it’s okay; in fact, the Chase G10 does not have a direct competitive relationship with the above three cars. After all, the main sales model is not the top model that overlaps the price of the above models. However, the configuration of the top-equipped model is quite good. The aviation seats also ensure the absolute comfort of the second row in daily use. The space advantage is also very obvious. I believe that people who look at this G10 top-equipped model will not How to consider other models at the same price, but the preferential situation of G10 is not optimistic.
