[YesAuto Test Drive] After successfully launching the Roewe 750 2.5-liter model, SAIC recently launched a brand new 1.8T model, so that the Roewe 750 product series has increased to two different engines and more than ten different configurations. From the market point of view, the 2.3-liter and 2.4-liter mid-size cars are the most popular, while the Roewe 750 1.8T model has exactly the same engine power as the 2.3-liter naturally aspirated engine, and it has certain advantages in terms of price. It will undoubtedly become the 750 The main model in the series.

In order to give everyone a better understanding of the 1.8T engine of the 750, the manufacturer specially found two main medium-sized cars on the market for comparison. Opponent 1: Naturally aspirated pioneer model-Mondeo-Zhisheng (hereinafter referred to as Zhisheng) 2.3 luxury sporty; opponent 2: Old and strong-PASSAT Lingyu (hereinafter referred to as Lingyu) 1.8T manual luxury type. The two rivals have their own characteristics. The winning model is a brand new model that was just launched in the second half of last year. It is full of technology, originated from Europe, and emphasizes handling and sportiness. It uses a 2.3-liter naturally aspirated engine. Although Lingyu is an old model, it is still a frequent customer on the monthly sales rankings. The markets that Lingyu and Roewe 750 mainly attack are also very close, and they are mainly for official purposes. The classic 1.8T engine is very mature, so it is often used as a benchmark.

Judging from the engine data, the 1.8T of the Roewe 750 has the same power level as the 2.3-liter naturally aspirated engine of the victory, and both can output 160 horsepower. Driven by turbocharging, the 750 engine can reach its maximum horsepower output at 5500 rpm, and the victory will reach the 6500 rpm red line. Lingyu’s 1.8T engine is slightly weaker, but it can also output 150 horsepower. In terms of torque, both turbocharged engines show advantages. The peak torques of Lingyu and 750 are 210N·m and 215N·m respectively, and the winning is 205N·m. The difference is not great, but Lingyu can reach the peak torque at 1700 rpm, and Roewe has output 215N·m at 2100 rpm. Naturally The suction win is slightly inferior in this respect, and the maximum torque output will not be reached until 4500 rpm.

However, in actual driving, the performance of the three cars is somewhat different from the engine data. Roewe 750 is very smooth in power output, ensuring sufficient power at low and high speeds. Lingyu’s engine exhibits typical turbocharged engine characteristics. There is almost no power output below 2000 rpm, just like a 1.8-liter naturally aspirated engine. However, after 2000 rpm, the throttle response is extremely positive, and the power is on demand. To. Winning adopts a 6-speed automatic transmission, which has the best ride comfort, but it is difficult to connect the dynamic performance with sports.

When driving on mountain roads, as long as the engine of Lingyu is kept at about 3000 rpm, then the power is not a problem at all, and the body will rush when you step on the accelerator. The 5-speed gearbox of the Roewe 750 will adjust the power very reasonably. Although not as active as the Lingyu, the power reserve is also very rich. Winning Due to the late torque output, I was a bit disadvantaged in the continuous uphill mountain roads. The 6-speed gearbox was always hesitant and frequently moved up and down.

But speaking of the control in the corners, the advantage of winning is revealed. Its steering work is the most delicate, the strength is even, and the front wheels react quickly, reflecting the athlete's potential. The steering wheel of Lingyu is the heaviest, and it always requires more effort in the multi-curve section, but the steering is also more precise. The steering force of the 750 is moderate, slightly lighter than that of the Lingyu, and the direction is extremely sensitive. The steering wheel does not have any openness in the middle position, which is very suitable for driving on mountain roads.

At high speeds, the performance of the three cars is different. Winning due to its weak power, it is not as good as the other two opponents in terms of extreme speed. When the speed reaches 190 kilometers per hour, the victory has almost reached its limit, and it can barely reach 200km/h with the help of downhill. At this time, the Roewe 750 can easily follow it, and when the speed exceeds 210 kilometers per hour, there is still a lot of margin for the throttle. In terms of the highest speed, the manufacturer's 205km/h is obviously too conservative. However, the too sensitive steering wheel of the Roewe 750 does not give people that confidence when driving at high speeds, the steering is too sensitive, and it is more sensitive to road bumps, so the driver must always control the direction carefully. High-speed driving is the strength of Lingyu. Although the engine power is the smallest among the three cars, it can still easily reach 220km/h, and the steady steering also brings better high-speed stability. Wind noise is the only problem. The higher the speed Faster, the louder the noise.

In terms of suspension performance, Winner is obviously more dynamic. The tighter suspension adjustment brings a richer sense of road, and wider and flatter tires are also more conducive to handling. Lingyu’s suspension has been improved on the basis of Passat B5 for domestic road conditions. The suspension travel is longer, so it pays more attention to comfort. The suspension setting of the 750 is somewhere in between. Compared with Lingyu, it has a richer sense of road. I personally feel that it is more sporty, but it is not as radical as winning.

The wheelbases of these three cars all exceed 2.8 meters, and Lingyu has the shortest wheelbase, but it also reaches 2803mm. However, in terms of space performance, Lingyu is the number one player who is not allowed. Its rear legroom is still hard to find in a medium-sized car. The wheelbase difference between the Roewe 750 and Zhisheng is only 1mm, Roewe is 2849, and Zhisheng is 2850. However, the internal dimensions are indeed the opposite. In most data, the Roewe 750 is bigger than the winning. In terms of rear space, the Roewe 750 is almost equal to Lingyu.

There are also obvious differences in the interior style of the three cars. The winning is completely modern style, even some advanced, pure black interior, densely packed electronic equipment on the center console, large-size LCD screen on the instrument panel, plus sports seats with excellent wrapping properties, the overall The style is more suitable for young people, but also more suitable for private use. The interior design of Roewe 750 and PASSAT is more suitable for official use, but they are not exactly the same. Lingyu is still the traditional popular style, putting practicality in the first place, the layout is very regular, and the workmanship is also the finest. Roewe's interior is more integrated into the noble temperament of Britain, some retro elements are in it, and the use of light brown color is more quality.

Based on the above aspects, the three cars Roewe 750, Mondeo Zhisheng and PASSAT Lingyu are not the same. Victory is more sports-oriented and will attract more private users. Lingyu and 750 are more business-oriented. However, the 750 is different from Lingyu. Lingyu is fairly well-balanced in all aspects, but it also lacks characteristics. And because of its unique British temperament, the 750 is completely different from other models on the market, making it even more unique. But in terms of space, all three cars have reached a level rarely seen in medium-sized cars.

Finally, let’s take a look at the configuration and price. The three test-driving cars are Roewe 750D 1.8T Shangya Edition, PASSAT Lingyu 1.8T Manual Luxury Type, and Mondeo-Zhisheng 2.3 Luxury Sport Type. The factory guides the price (because prices exist in various regions). The difference, so the guide price shall prevail) are 192,800, 199,800 and 239,800 respectively. The Lingyu is a manual model, while the 750 and Zhisheng are 5-speed and 6-speed automatic transmissions respectively. In terms of overall configuration, Winner is obviously the most abundant, with several main functions such as keyless start, ESP system, and multi-function display. Compared with Lingyu, Roewe 750 also has more xenon headlights and headlight cleaning devices. Of course, there is a big discrepancy between the price of the test drive model. If the price is similar, it should be replaced with the Roewe 750E 1.8T Qiya version, the PASSAT 1.8T automatic navigation version and the Mondeo-Zhisheng 2.3 luxury sports model. The prices are 239,800, 236,800 and 239,800 respectively. When the price is close, PASSAT Lingyu becomes a 5-speed automatic manual gearbox with more functions such as navigation. The Roewe 750 also has more navigation, multi-function display and DVD functions. For details, please see the final model parameter configuration table.
