  7. Joint venture independent cost-effective...

[YesAuto Model PK] When it comes to independent brands, everyone will naturally think of national brands. The emergence of joint venture independent brands once again made people confused about the definition of the word “independent”. In fact, we can understand it as using the technology of joint venture brands to produce self-owned brand models. Their biggest advantage is the technical background of joint venture brands. The two protagonists coming today are also models born under this new concept: Baojun 630 and Kai Chen D50. Because they have similar price positioning and the same historical background, the competition between the two is inevitable. Without further ado, we will immediately enter today's PK arena.

The price range of Baojun 630 is between 6.28 and 85,800 yuan, and the price range of Qichen D50 is between 6.78 and 83,800 yuan. For the fairness of comparison, we chose the top version of the two models for comparison. . ( Note: The navigation and reversing visual systems in the Venus D50 models compared in this issue are all retrofit content, so the article does not involve the comparison of these two content )

Comparison of appearance details:

As two brand new models, brand recognition is an issue they cannot avoid. Although they both have a joint venture background and the models are also manufactured based on the joint venture brand model platform, their brand recognition is still quite insufficient. The Baojun brand has a lot of early publicity foreshadowing, so Baojun has a weaker advantage than Qichen in terms of recognition. However, Kaichen D50 was born out of Tiida, which has a good reputation, so it is not difficult for it to be recognized by people.

After talking about the brand, let's go back to the model. Although both models are based on the joint venture model platform production: Baojun 630 is derived from Excelle models, and Kaichen D50 is derived from Tiida models. But the design of their two models is indeed quite different. The shape of the Baojun 630 is designed by Shanghai Pan Asia Automotive Technology Center Co., Ltd., which is dynamic and stylish, and at the same time it does not lose its atmosphere. The styling of Kai Chen D50 retains Tiida's design well, but the detailed design has been optimized, making a car that looked old-fashioned now much more fashionable. From the visual effect point of view, the body size of Baojun 630 is obviously larger than Kaichen D50.

In terms of front face details, both models have their own unique designs, especially the headlights. Both the Baojun LOGO set in the Baojun 630 wick and the chrome-plated “Yi” shape designed at the corner of the Venus D50 headlight are both. In order to further enhance the fashion and sophistication of the shape. In addition to the different appearance and internal structure of the headlights of the two models, the light source is also different. The Baojun 630 headlight adopts a design that separates the far and short light, while the Qichen D50 adopts the integrated design of far and near light. There are two designs. It's hard to talk about which is better, it's just a different structure.

Rearview mirror electric adjustment

In terms of details, we feel the sincerity of SAIC-GM-Wuling. All Baojun 630 series come standard with boneless wipers and electric adjustable rearview mirror functions. In contrast, Dongfeng Nissan’s approach is confusing to us. If it is cost consideration to be equipped with bone wipers and electric rearview mirrors, then the rearview mirrors are not even provided with a lever. Only the practice of adjusting by pressing with both hands can be said to be quite speechless. It is recommended that manufacturers as soon as possible Solve, because this is a question of sincerity related to manufacturers.

As we mentioned above, Baojun 630 looks obviously bigger than Kaichen D50. The actual body size data also tells us that Baojun 630 is indeed a lap larger than Kaichen D50, especially in terms of wheelbase, Baojun 630 is 40mm longer than Kaichen D50. Seeing this, I believe many friends will conclusively say that the riding space of Baojun 630 will inevitably be better than that of Kaichen D50. Are things really the same as the data shows? Let's sell a key here first, and we will find out below.

In terms of tail design, the two models also have their own characteristics. The details of the Baojun 630 tail have many features, so it also makes the tail look very rich.

Both models are equipped with 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels. In terms of tires, the Kaichen D50 is equipped with a slightly thicker walled Magis 185/65 R15 tire, while the Baojun 630 is equipped with a slightly wider slender 195/60 R15 tire. Tires. In terms of spare tires, both cars have non-full-size specifications. In addition, the front and rear disc brake system of Baojun 630 is more honest than the front disc and rear drum brake system of Kaichen D50, and it also has an absolute advantage in the same level of models.

remote key

In terms of details, let's finally compare the key aspects. All Kaichen D50 series are equipped with a remote control key, while Baojun 630 is equipped with a remote control key except for the lowest model. The remote control key is equipped with Kaichen D50 slightly superior. But in terms of style, Kai Chen D50 has no advantage at all, and the separated design is particularly ancient. The folding key design of the Baojun 630 appears to be quite high-end.


Comparison of details in the car

● Interior control contrast:

After comparing the appearance and styling, let's take a look at the interior design of the two models. Through analysis and comparison, we can see what shining points the two models have.

Baojun 630 is a brand new design from the inside to the outside, with a highly original style. The overall styling is harmonious and smooth, and full of avant-garde atmosphere. It is in the middle-to-upper design level among the cars of the same level. The Kai Chen D50 has a clear shadow of the old Tiida shape, but the details have basically been redesigned, with a certain sense of freshness.

The design and design of the two instruments are quite stylish and beautiful, and the readings are clear and intuitive. However, the design of Kaichen D50 has obvious advantages in terms of sophistication and sense of technology, whether it is the shape of the styling instrument panel or the readability The amount of information is significantly better than that of models of the same level.

The Venus D50, which has an advantage in the design of the instrument panel, was defeated in the steering wheel equipment. The steering wheel, which is too straightforward and unadorned, is quite lacking in grade. Compared with the Baojun 630, the steering wheel design is obviously much more high-end and exquisite. . With the addition of multi-function buttons, it is even more classy.

Front double airbags

In terms of airbag equipment, the performance of the two models is the same. Both models are equipped with dual front airbags for all models, and no additional airbags are provided for optional installation. The performance of the models in the same class can only be regarded as satisfactory.

The height-adjustable headlights and the opening buttons in the trunk are also equipped with the same performance. Both models are equipped with these two functions. The only difference is that the function buttons are assembled in different areas.

● Comparison of storage space in the car:

In terms of storage space performance in the front row (not at the door), Baojun 630 has a slight advantage in the number of storage compartments, while Kai Chen D50 has an advantage in storage compartment volume. So in this comparison, the two models have their own advantages.

In addition, the storage capacity of the storage compartment at the front door, which has a higher usage rate, is also worth paying attention to. Through the comparison, the storage capacity of the storage compartment at the door of the two models is roughly the same, which can basically meet the needs of daily household use, which is a tie.


Comparison of riding space in the car:

Continuing the topic mentioned earlier, Baojun 630 has an absolute advantage in terms of body size (whether it is body length or wheelbase), but what is the actual performance in terms of riding space? We will not just look at the surface data. Actual measurement performance tells everything.

● Comparison of front row seating space

Through actual measurement, it is found that the performance of the two models in the front row seating space is not the same. Experiencers with a height of 1.79m can get a space of about 4 fingers when the seat is adjusted to the minimum, and the performance is quite satisfactory.

● Comparison of rear seating space:

After watching the performance of the front row, let’s take a look at the performance of the back row. Through comparison, it is found that the difference between the two models is quite large: the higher body height of the Kaichen D50 can be said to have contributed a lot to the rear seating space, ensuring that the 1.79m experiencer has about 4 fingers of head space. , The legroom has reached about two punches, the performance is quite good, even better than many medium-sized cars. With Kai Chen's good rear space performance, the performance of Baojun 630 can only be regarded as qualified.

● Comparison of the riding space in the middle of the rear row:

In addition to the above two space comparisons, the performance of the middle rear seating space has also received more and more attention, especially for the models in the main home market, this performance is particularly important. Through actual measurement, it can be known that due to cost considerations, both models are not equipped with rear central headrests. However, the two-point seat belts in the middle of the rear seat of the Kai Chen D50 do not pay enough attention to safety performance. On the whole, the ride comfort of the rear middle seats of these two models is relatively good, and there is no big problem for long-distance driving.

● Comparison of storage capacity in the trunk:

Finally, let's compare the storage capacity of the two models. For family cars, this is also a consideration that cannot be ignored. Through the comparison, the opening and volume of the trunk of the two models are relatively large (at the upper middle level in the same level of models), but the depth and width of the trunk space are slightly dominant in the Baojun 630, and the Baojun 630 rear The row of seats has functions such as 4/6 points folding and placing, and the practicality is obviously better than that of Kai Chen D50.

Powertrain comparison:

After comparing the loading space of the two models, we entered the link of powertrain comparison with a high degree of attention. However, as soon as I opened the engine cover, I found that the two models have a lot of differences in the details of the treatment: the details of the Baojun 630 still have the style of a big factory, and the design is in place. In contrast, Kai Chen D50 may be due to cost considerations, and many details have adopted cost-saving practices, which seems not so kind.

In terms of powertrain equipment, Baojun 630 is equipped with this 1.5L engine with DVVT technology, which belongs to the general P-TEC series and is also a member of the global strategic small displacement engine. Kaichen D50 is equipped with Nissan's 1.6L engine, and the parameters of Kaichen's 1.6L engine are slightly ahead of Baojun's 1.5L engine. As for the gearbox matched with the engine, the Baojun 630 is equipped with a 6-speed automatic manual transmission that is ahead of the same level of models. The fuel economy is estimated to have a very good performance. The manual transmission model is equipped with a 5-speed structure similar to the general model. Manual gearbox. Kaichen D50 is consistent with Nissan Tiida in terms of gearbox equipment: it has four-speed automatic and 5-speed manual gearboxes to choose from. There is no surprise, and it is in line with the mainstream situation of this level.

Suspension structure comparison:

Finally, let’s take a look at the suspension structure. Both Baojun 630 and Kai Chen D50 use a similar suspension structure: front Macpherson + rear torsion beam. However, the Kai Chen D50 also inherits the “tradition” of Nissan Tiida's front and rear suspension with stabilizer bars, and is slightly ahead of the Baojun 630 in terms of structure. The Nissan Tiida's excellent comfortable driving experience in the same level of models also provides an invisible reputation for the Kaichen D50.

Full text summary:

By comparison, everyone should have a general understanding of the situation of these two models. With its fashionable and dynamic appearance design and rich model configuration, Baojun 630 seems to be more popular with people. To describe it with the sentence we said in our editor's review before: It just came with sincerity, Baojun 630 seems It's done enough. Compared with this, the Kai Chen D50 seems to have quite few shining points: there are only two points that have the rear seating space comparable to that of a mid-size car and the comfortable suspension tuning inherited from Nissan Tiida. However, these highlights are also the two aspects that consumers consider the most for family cars, so the Venus D50 still has a good competitiveness. Generally speaking, the prices of the two models are the same, and the characteristics are more obvious: if you are particularly concerned about the performance of the rear seat, the Venus D50 is definitely a good recommendation, and it is also the only choice for mature and stable people; if you do not consider the rear space, you are decisive Choose Baojun 630, especially for the younger generation, Baojun 630 is a better choice. For this level of model purchase, it is still the same sentence, only choose the right one, not the expensive one.
