Zotye T700 adopts a brand-new design language. The originality of the vehicle is much higher than that of the previous T600. The overall shape is very sharp. The air intake grille adopts the starry design that is popular nowadays, which looks very fashionable. The front LED headlight group is connected with the air intake grille, and the overall visual effect is more tense.

Width (mm) 1933 1910 1930
Height (mm) 1697 1770 1785
Wheelbase (mm) 2850 2800 2810

The suspended roof design on the side of the body is very eye-catching, and the tough lines, the “Z” logo on the fender and the blue decorative lights all make the side of the body look sharper. In terms of body color, since the official website does not display all the body colors of the T700, so far, only the real shot models in the car home product library are referenced, and there are 5 body colors in total. In addition, there is no display of the rim, so there is only one style of rim for your reference.

The design of the rear of the car is relatively simple, but it is very strong, and the rear taillights all use LEDs as the light source. It is also worth mentioning that the two exhaust ports at the bottom of the car are only for decoration. The real exhaust pipe is located inside the rear enclosure. The sealed decorative panel is also equipped with patterns of Chinese elements, which are also commonly used in Chinese brand models. Design elements.

The interior of the T700 adopts a symmetrical design, and the materials and workmanship have been improved to a certain extent compared to the previous ones, but there are still traces of plagiarism, such as the steering wheel similar to Porsche and the knob-type shift on Jaguar Land Rover models. There are some shadows of imitation, and it is still difficult to remove the title of plagiarism in a short time. In addition, there are many types of personalized settings for the full LCD instrument, which can present different display modes and styles. The size of the central control screen is also large, but the interface design is a bit messy.

In terms of riding space, Zotye T700 also showed a higher level among the same-level models. The second row of seats supports front and rear adjustment, which improves the flexibility of the rear space. In addition, thanks to the panoramic sunroof, the subjective ride experience of the front and rear passengers is very spacious, and it also helps to expand the head space.

In terms of power system, Zotye T700 has three powertrains for consumers to choose from, 1.8T+5MT, 1.8T+6DCT and 2.0T+6DCT. The maximum power of the 1.8T turbocharged engine is 177 horsepower (130 kilowatts). , The maximum torque is 245 N·m, the maximum power of the 2.0T turbocharged engine is 190 horsepower (140 kilowatts), and the maximum torque is 250 N·m. In addition, in terms of steering system, both the distinguished and flagship models are electric power steering, and the rest are mechanical hydraulic power steering.

Configuration analysis

The official guide price of Zotye T700 is 10.68-15.58 million yuan. There are 10 models in the whole series, with three powertrains, namely 1.8T+5MT, 1.8T+6DCT and 2.0T+6DCT. The whole series has four configuration levels, namely luxury, exclusive, noble and flagship. We will recommend the most worthwhile models to everyone based on the four configuration levels.

The difference between 1.8T manual and automatic is only reflected in the gearbox, while the cruise control and steering wheel Shifting can only be matched with automatic transmission models, and manual transmission models cannot be equipped. The difference between 1.8T automatic and 2.0T automatic is only in power parameters, but the power parameters of 2.0T models do not have a great advantage. In addition, the level of luxury configuration can meet the needs of some people. If consumers do not pursue higher configuration, they can consider buying it.

The exclusive model also has three models in the whole series. The configuration differences between them are the same as those of the luxury model. The only difference is the powertrain. The automatic transmission models also have more fixed-speed cruises and steering wheel shifts. In view of the configuration of the exclusive type can meet the needs of most consumers and the price is only 10,000 yuan more expensive, the 2.0T power parameters are not very obvious, so we strongly recommend the 1.8T automatic exclusive type.

The front seat heating/ventilation/massage, driving recorder, panoramic camera and other functions are all available, even the electric suction door. There are all levels of configuration, which also shows the higher level of configuration of the Zotye T700 top model, but considering that its price is close to 150,000 yuan, some functions are not often used, so the flagship model is more suitable for one step. Consumers.

Similarly, the two flagship models have the same configuration except for the difference in power, so we still follow the principle that the 2.0T power is not significantly improved, and recommend that you buy a 1.8T model.
