[YesAuto Professional Evaluation] What? The 2013 Sega, you read that right, it is this little friend we are familiar with. Although it may not seem appropriate to call Sega a veteran in terms of qualifications, the current 4AT joint venture compact cars on the market are already in the minority. The so-called existence is reasonable, not to mention, with a good reputation, Sega is still the most dependent sales pillar of Citroen.

This 2013 Sega doesn’t look much different from the old one. In fact, it has already completed a small and no small exchange of blood: it not only replaced the new 1.6L engine of the “E-Motion Strategy” series, but also upgraded the original one. Four-speed automatic manual gearbox. The two major parts of the power system have been renewed, but there is not much difference in essence. It is still a combination of in-line four-cylinder 1.6L naturally aspirated engine and 4AT. And whether this change can make Sega have a substantial change, let me talk about it for you.

power system:

First, let’s take a look at this 1.6L naturally aspirated engine independently developed by Shenlong Group. It has an in-line four-cylinder overhead dual camshaft 16-valve design, a cast iron cylinder block, and CVVT variable valve technology. The maximum output power is 117 horsepower (86 KW)/6000rpm, the peak torque is 150 N·m/4000rpm, which is 11 horsepower and 8 N·m higher than the current model. The data has improved slightly. Among the current mainstream 1.6L engines of joint venture brands, the parameters of this engine belong to The level of the upper reaches.

For the gearbox part, this 4AT gearbox code-named “AT8” also has a manual mode. In addition, there are also a lot of snow and sports modes. According to the official, the gearbox uses a more efficient hydraulic torque converter, and has upgraded the hydraulic system and new shift control software. The 2013 Sega equipped with this gearbox has improved ride comfort and economy. . As for how it actually performs, I will explain in detail below.

Daily driving experience:

Sitting in the car, two old friends, the central steering wheel and the central digital instrument, are in front of you. Start with D gear. The brisk feel of the early throttle is very suitable for urban road conditions. A light touch on your foot will give you a positive response from the engine. In fact, its momentum only exists in the first second of stepping on the accelerator, after which the engine returns to flat. This level of family car, always like this kind of throttle adjustment, with a relaxed and comfortable driving feeling to whitewash the lack of power.

Of course, the lack of power has a lot to do with the 4-speed automated manual gearbox it uses. If you drive slowly and unhurriedly in the city, the frustration of shifting in D gear is not obvious, and the overall comfort is good. However, if you want to use the throttle to urge the gearbox to downshift, the downshift response of this gearbox can only be described as slow.

That’s right, this gearbox is not good at understanding the driver’s intentions, and sometimes makes you dumbfounded. Whenever you slam on the accelerator and want to accelerate, it always has to hesitate for a long time before making a downshift decision, and sometimes You slowly put pressure on the throttle, and it will drop you a gear unpreparedly. Although the gearbox is also set with S gear, it only delays the timing of upshifts and does not increase the speed of downshifts. Therefore, if you want to overtake on mountain roads, it is best to use manual mode and advance before stepping on the accelerator. Downshift to increase the speed, and accelerate the throttle to the end as soon as you get the opportunity, so that you can safely complete the overtaking.

Small horse-drawn carts often cause the engine speed to be higher than 4000rpm. This has the advantage that you basically don’t have to worry about carbon deposits, and the vibration and noise of this new engine are well controlled at high rpm. For many first-time car buyers, the power performance is relatively unimportant, and it is enough to be able to travel leisurely and daily.

Sega’s steering wheel uses mechanical hydraulic power assistance, which feels quite heavy, and is slightly better than the previous 206 and C2. Basement maneuvering is a more strenuous type. Female friends may complain, but it can provide good Steering feedback, the body does not feel fluttering at high speeds. The brake pedal is slightly empty, the stroke is moderate but the initial stage is soft, the transition of the braking force is very uniform, and it is very comfortable for daily use.

The suspension structure is the front and rear torsion beam structure we are most familiar with. The initial section is soft but the end section is full of toughness, and its balance is excellent in the same class of models. The suspension travel is long and soft, and it is easy to deal with potholes like speed bumps. The sound insulation of the chassis is also good when walking on bad roads. However, the filtering of other small vibrations is not thorough, and it still retains a certain sense of road.

As for handling, Sega retains Citroen’s always excellent driving texture, but the dynamic limit is not high. The tail is a bit too active during fast steering, and the tire grip is average. After the rear wheels start to slide, the dynamics of the body are easier to control. As for The ESC electronic stability program is provided by the manufacturer as an option, but it is a pity that our test drive car is not equipped.

Finally, let's take a look at the specific test results.

0-100km/h acceleration test:

From the picture, after the small push back feeling at the start, the whole acceleration tends to be flat, and the speed and vehicle speed are steadily and slowly increased. After two shifts with less frustration, the speed is finally mentioned. 100km/h, the final shortest time is 14.3 seconds. Obviously, power performance is not Sega’s strong point. In terms of the power level of the 1.6L automatic transmission of the compact car we have tested, the Sega 1.6AT can only be ranked in the middle and lower reaches. Friends who care more about power performance recommend it. Choose 2.0L models.

100km/h-0 brake test

In contrast, Sega’s braking performance was fairly good. When the brake pedal was fully depressed, the ABS feedback was more obvious, the braking force was released evenly, and the results of multiple tests were basically maintained at around 42 meters. The final average score of 41.84 meters reached our standard of excellent results. However, there is a slight tendency to deviate when braking at full force. This requires attention.

Fuel consumption:

Regarding Sega’s fuel consumption, I also roughly recorded his fuel consumption in Chengde Saihanba’s travel notes. Under the condition of 60% unobstructed secondary roads, 20% expressways, and 10% congestion, the final score was 8.25L (click to view (Details), because large trucks with 2 gears at 5000rpm are often required to overtake creeping trucks on mountain roads, the fuel consumption should be lower in unobstructed road conditions. In urban conditions, under 50% unobstructed and 50% congested conditions, Sega's performance is expected. The 10.21L performance is basically the same as the 2.0L model we tested before. This is also the negative impact of the small horse-drawn cart .

Noise

The sound insulation and noise reduction of Sega's vehicle are still good. The cabin is quite quiet at speeds below 80km/h. However, due to insufficient power, the engine speed has reached 3100rpm when running to 120km/h. At this time, wind noise increases. The engine noise is a bit obvious.

to sum up:

If you put aside the short board of the gearbox, in fact, Sega's comprehensive strength in all aspects is considered to be at the upper-middle level among mainstream compact cars. Coupled with its original cost-effective advantage, these are what it depends on in the competition. Magic weapon. Having said that, the engine has been replaced and the gearbox has been upgraded. Its ride comfort has indeed improved, but the fuel consumption and power are still the same. For Sega, the performance has not improved much.

Of course, if you like a slow-paced life and do not require high power, you just need a practical means of transportation. Considering the configuration, workmanship, space and chassis, Sega is indeed a good choice. Of course, manual transmission is A smarter choice.

From the perspective of cost performance, the low-to-medium configuration models of 1.6L are obviously more valuable. After all, for consumers of this level, lower prices are the most attractive selling point. And if you count the discount, the cheapest 1.6L manual model only needs 90,000 yuan (the discount is around 15,000 in Beijing), isn't it exciting?

In contrast, the 1.6L automatic tasting recommendation index we tested is not very high. With the addition of electric sunroofs, leather seats and automatic air conditioning, its guide price reached 129,800 yuan, which is 3,000 yuan more expensive than the 2.0L automatic product. It’s true that you get what you pay for, but for about the same (in fact, less) money, are you willing to buy a bunch of configurations that you don’t need a few times a year or a car with a more handy power to drive? ? I think such multiple-choice questions shouldn't be difficult. (Picture / Li Yi of the car home)
