[YesAuto Smart Car Link Evaluation] As early as the first half of 2018, the Chery brand has officially released the Lion Smart Cloud strategy, and Chery's high-end product Xingtu LX will naturally take the lead in the smart link. With the upgrade of Lion Cloud System from the initial version 2.0 to version 3.0, system functions and networking resources have been enhanced. So, as a compact SUV that focuses on young users, what is the smart performance of the whole series of Star Way LX equipped with Lion Zhiyun 3.0 system? Come and experience it today.

The 2019 Xingtu LX currently has four configuration models on sale. All four models are equipped with a 12.3-inch dual screen and the Lion 3.0 Lion Zhiyun system based on the Xiaodu car OS. The commonly used network connection functions are all complete in the four configurations, but there are still some differences between different versions of models in functions such as face recognition. In the following introduction, I will also point out the differences in configuration. Where. In addition, the Xingtu brand also has another Xingtu TX/TXL high-end models equipped with the Lion system.

Regardless of the form of interaction or richness, the performance of the Xingtu Lion system is very good. I want to compare the Xingtu TX system (2.0) we tested before, the Xingtu LX also has certain advantages in touch screen hardware and other aspects. , Not only can meet users' daily travel needs, but also hope to integrate into a part of users' lives.

Human-vehicle interaction

The intelligent connection system mainly interacts with users through the central control screen, meters, voice assistants and other forms. The central control screen is the most important part of it. The UI interface design affects the user's daily operating system favorability. All Star Way LX series adopt a 12.3-inch dual-screen design with a screen resolution of 1920×720 and a high screen resolution. The entire center console looks very stylish and can leave a good first impression.

In addition to touch screen and voice control, Star Way LX also has a lot of physical buttons behind the steering wheel, center console, and gear bar. In addition to the shortcut keys for multimedia, navigation, and volume adjustment, the panel behind the handle is also equipped with a touchpad in the central area. By sliding the finger on the surface of the touchpad, functions such as playing, pausing, and cutting songs can be realized, which is helpful. Operate blindly while driving.

The Lion system supports multi-account login. In addition to manually changing the account information, the top version with the in-car camera also has a face recognition function. After getting in the car, the user can directly complete the seat and air conditioning pre-setting by “swiping the face”. Set switching, the sense of science and technology has taken the lead in all intelligent connected systems.

The 12.3-inch full LCD instrument is also standard in the four configurations of Star Way LX. The instrument interface has three styles for switching according to the driving mode or manual adjustment mode, and the visual effects are good. But the only thing that needs to be complained is that there is no sunshade design around the instrument panel, which makes the left side of the instrument panel have more obvious reflections, which has a slight impact on the reading information.

The initial wake-up word of the voice control system is “Xiaoyun Xiaoyun” or “Xiaodu Xiaodu”, and the system supports coherent voice input, that is, you don't need to wait for the system to respond after shouting the wake-up word, just say the command directly. The system has powerful natural speech recognition capabilities, and can understand the user's needs for information query, foreign language translation, and window ventilation. It is also possible to interact with games when you are bored. In addition, the voice system can also identify the location of the command, so as to control the air conditioner or car windows in the corresponding area.

In terms of human-vehicle interaction, Xingtu LX has achieved good scores in language control. A total of 15 test sentences can be accurately recognized. In addition, the hardware design of the car has also won a lot of points for its 12.3-inch dual-screen fineness. High, the interface is not only good-looking, but the information presentation is also very clear. However, due to the lack of such measures around the screen, the instrument panel and the central control screen have reflected light, which will still affect the user's reading or operation.

Other hardware equipment

In terms of other configurations, Starway LX provides 4, 6, and 8-speaker speakers according to different configuration versions. The two higher configuration speakers (the second low is equipped with 6 speakers and the top is equipped with 8 speakers) are tuned by a professional tuning company. School, can improve the sense of hearing to a certain extent. The dual temperature zone automatic air-conditioning panel adopts a touch-sensitive design. There are two small color screens on the two temperature control knobs to display information such as temperature, time, and weather. The number of LCD screens in the car has reached four. China is also rare.

Wireless charging has gradually become a standard configuration in many intelligent cockpits. In addition, Star Way LX has also added user favorite functions such as a driving recorder and multi-color ambient light in the car.

Function realization

After talking about the hardware level, let's take a look at the functional performance of the Star Way LX Lion system. In the entertainment system, in addition to the basic radio and external audio input, the system also has built-in networked audio and video resources such as QQ music and iQiyi, which are very rich in audio and video resources.

Click “Watch as you wish” to enter the video zone. Its resources come from websites such as iQiyi. We searched for the latest TV series, reality shows and other programs while parking, and dispatched users to feel bored when traveling outside. However, we recommend that you do not watch the video for safety while driving.

Baidu online navigation has a wealth of networking functions, including dynamic avoidance of congestion, avoidance of restricted areas, and fleet formation. It is not much different from Baidu or AutoNavi navigation of other intelligent connected systems. It is basically the same as the mobile app and has no difficulty in getting started. . AR real-world navigation is a major feature of Xingtu LX. The navigation path will be projected in the instrument in real time, and the virtual path will be used to achieve navigation based on the current real scene and lane, which looks more intuitive than traditional navigation.

The panoramic parking image is equipped except for the lowest version. After the R gear is engaged, the car in the center of the screen can be manually dragged to rotate the angle of view, which looks like controlling a remote control car. The remote control of the vehicle is realized through the “Star Way Life” App. After binding the vehicle, the status of the vehicle can be checked, and a wealth of remote control functions can be realized.

Service ecology

In order for drivers to completely abandon the use of mobile phones in the car, the in-vehicle system should have some common functions of mobile phones. From the current stage, the layout of the service ecology is very important. It can not only improve the sense of grade during daily travel and car use, but also It can bring some convenience to travel, so we have included the service ecology in the evaluation system.

In terms of payment function, Xingtu LX can already realize functions such as ordering movie tickets and paying for non-sense parking, but catering services such as Meituan Waimai have not yet been included in the Lions system. Smart home control is also part of the system's features. From the list, we see that the system supports many smart home systems under the interconnected Baidu ecosystem, such as Midea air conditioners and Mijia Home Furnishings.

Because of the face recognition function, the Lion Zhiyun i-Connect@Lion 2.0 system can realize the online payment function, but the current payment function of the system only supports the online purchase of movie tickets. In the future, it will open up a series of parking lots, toll booths, etc. Scenes. Although Xingtu-TXL has one-button emergency rescue in the car and appointments for maintenance and repairs through the car, the mobile app cannot complete the maintenance and repair appointments. It can only display the current vehicle faults or problems, so the app scene function satisfaction degree is not scored. .

Communication Favorability

At present, voice has become the mainstream way of interaction, but the intelligence of the voice assistant determines how people use it. At this stage, some are smart co-pilots who understand you and can bring you pleasure, while some are co-pilots who can answer the questions that are not asked. Therefore, an in-vehicle system that can be called smart should at least understand you, and secondly, it can bring pleasure. The Xingtu LX system can indeed give users good interactivity in terms of communication. Although it lacks a virtual interactive image for the time being, the good natural voice interaction ability is believed to still be able to win the love of many young users.

Finally, let's take a look at the scores of Star Way LX. After calculating its final score of 77.16 points, it ranks among the best. Regardless of human-computer interaction or the richness of functions, the Lion Zhiyun 3.0 system is at the leading level, and it is well deserved to get high scores. Rich audio and video resources and voice interaction make the journey no longer in place. The rich destination data of Baidu's online navigation and the ability to avoid congestion and traffic restrictions can also allow users to get rid of mobile phone navigation, and can even accurately be guided by AR real-world navigation. Finding the way to the destination is very friendly to both novice and old drivers. At present, the payment function has been opened up for parking payment and ticket purchase. Perhaps in the future, it may be able to further develop shopping capabilities through OTA upgrades and bring more convenience to users.
