Mr. Chen is 30 years old and has 1.5 years of driving experience. He bought this Sylphy 1.6XL CVT deluxe version in October last year and has driven 15,000 kilometers so far. Let’s listen to how Mr. Chen feels about his car. commented.

■ About buying a car:

Mr. Chen's price budget when buying a car is controlled within 150,000, and he has also seen many models, including Tiida, Sagitar, and New Santana. Because of the final decision to buy a sedan, Tiida first eliminated it. Later, I felt that the new Santana was a bit small, and the Sagitar was slightly more expensive and had to wait. In addition, I had a good impression of Tiida, and many friends around me were using it, so I finally chose Sylphy .

As for which configuration Sylphy chooses, first is the automatic transmission (CVT), after hesitating between 1.6L and 1.8L, after that, the main consideration is the cost-effective factor or the most popular 1.6XL CVT luxury version in the Sylphy series. Overall, it is quite satisfactory, but it would be better if 1.8L could be selected at that time. As for why you say so, please continue to read below.

■ About the car:

What are you satisfied with?

Mr. Chen spent half a year on the car's spacious space, comfortable seats and interior materials and other aspects are satisfied. Especially the space. After I adjusted the front seat to the right position with a height of 178cm, I can still get close to 3 punches in the back leg space at this time. It can be described as an absolute leading level in the same class of cars, even more than a lot. Medium-sized car.

What are you dissatisfied with?

Dissatisfaction is mainly reflected in the lack of rear air conditioning outlets, the ugly shape of the air conditioning knobs, and the lack of engine power. Among them, Mr. Chen is most dissatisfied with the lack of rear air conditioning vents. He thinks that since this car is mainly comfortable, it should not be without rear exhaust vents (1.6L does not have, 1.8L has). The air conditioner knob has been upgraded by itself, and there is no problem. As for the power, Mr. Chen said that the power of this car is good when it is below 70km/h, but the acceleration experience is obviously weakened after exceeding it. This is the main reason why he regrets not buying the 1.8L model at that time. If you bite your teeth on the 1.8L model, the power is better, the rear air conditioning outlet is also available, and the front air conditioning panel is more beautiful.

● Summary:

After a year of use, Mr. Chen is quite satisfied with his decision to choose Sylphy. The spacious space and comfortable riding experience of this car are ahead of the same class of cars, and the electric seats are also very easy to use. At the same time, during this period of time, the car has not had any minor problems, which is more worry-free. The only dissatisfaction is that there is no rear air conditioning outlet and 1.6L high-speed power is a bit weak. In Mr. Chen's words, if you can add more than 10,000 that year, buying the 1.8XL CVT Deluxe Edition will be perfect.

● Mr. Xiao

Mr. Xiao, 29 years old this year, is a company employee and has been driving for 6 years. He bought the Sylphy in front of him in early March of this year and drove nearly 6,300 kilometers after driving for more than half a year.

■ About buying a car

Mr. Xiao’s main considerations when buying a car are the new Santana, Roewe 550 and Roewe W5. Among them, the new Santana feels a bit small and gives up after seeing the actual car. Although the prices of Roewe W5 and Roewe 550 are quite attractive, they feel that The smell inside the car is a bit big, and the service of the 4S shop is not very good. The main reason for choosing Sylphy is that the service is very good after going to the 4S store to see the car. This car is very spacious and comfortable to sit in, and the price is within the budget.

■ About car

What are you satisfied with?

What Mr. Xiao is most satisfied with about Sylphy is that the space is spacious and the seats are particularly comfortable. This is the main reason for buying this car at that time. At the same time, the electrically adjustable seats it is equipped with are also very attractive. The car's interior materials are good, the storage space is also large, and the taillights are still LED, which are quite satisfactory. Mr. Xiao has been using cars in downtown Shanghai, and the overall fuel consumption displayed by the computer is about 9.3L/100km, which is quite satisfactory.

What are you dissatisfied with?

It doesn't matter if the headlights do not have lenses and xenon lamps, but the LED daytime running lights are fake, which is a bit unacceptable. In addition, the shape of the car's air-conditioning panel is a bit ugly, especially the old-fashioned slider for the internal and external circulation switch. Finally, the first warranty period of this car is too short. The original factory stipulates that the first warranty is 1,000 kilometers, the second warranty is 5000 kilometers or 3 months, and the third warranty is 10,000 kilometers or within 1 year. Mr. Xiao only drove 6500 kilometers for half a year, and he has done it 3 times of maintenance, although the first two are free, but it is a bit troublesome to run 4S shops frequently in short cycles.

● Summary:

What Mr. Xiao is most satisfied with is the space and comfort of the car. In his own words, the comfort of this car is almost invincible among models of the same price. The power and fuel consumption are basically satisfactory. The manual air conditioner does not matter. If the shape of the control panel can be made more beautiful, it will be fine.

Mr. Liu, 34 years old, professionally an electronic engineer. The Sylphy I am currently driving was purchased in June this year. It has been opened for less than half a year and has a mileage of about 4,000 kilometers. He is the three car owners interviewed in this interview. The vehicle has the shortest time in use.

■ About buying a car

When choosing a car, Mr. Liu’s focus was mainly on Volkswagen LaVida, Citroen C4L, etc. The reason for not buying LaVida was mainly due to the troublesome procedures for getting foreign brands in Shanghai, the poor service of 4S shops, and the so-called Shanghai Guide price (addition in disguise). As for the Citroen C4L, it was mainly because there was no automatic transmission model with a price of less than 150,000 yuan at the time. After the test drive, I felt that the noise inside the car was relatively loud, so I gave up.

The reason for buying Sylphy is very simple. There are a few friends around who drive Tiida, and the feedback is good, and there is no minor problem with fuel-saving. After going to the 4S shop to see the car, I was very satisfied with the exterior and interior of Sylphy. The seats are comfortable, the space is really large, and the price is within the budget range, so I bought it.

■ About car

What are you satisfied with?

The Xuan Yi looks very beautiful, and the front face looks a little bit natural. The shape of the wheels is good-looking, and the matching tires are Dunlop's, which is good. There is also the comfort of this car, the front and rear seats are very wide and soft, and the rear leg room is extremely abundant. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and has multi-function buttons, which looks good.

The biggest highlight is the low fuel consumption. Since Mr. Liu works in Zhangjiang and Mrs. Liu works in Caohejing, he often runs the Central Ring Road. The road conditions are relatively good. The average fuel consumption displayed by the computer is only 6.9L/100km, which is very low.

What are you dissatisfied with?

First of all, the key is ugly. If it can be folded, it will look better. Secondly, the control panel of the air conditioner is a bit ugly.

summary:

Like the previous two owners, Mr. Liu is most satisfied with the car's high ride comfort, spaciousness and good fuel economy. As for the dissatisfaction, the key shape, the shape of the air-conditioning panel, and the lack of a rear exhaust vent are mainly three aspects, which are also representative.

● Full text summary:

The three car owners interviewed today were quite satisfied with the overall performance of Sylphy, among which the ride comfort, space performance, interior workmanship and materials were highly appreciated. However, the dissatisfaction with this car is also concentrated, especially the shape of the air conditioning panel and the lack of rear air conditioning vents. We hope that manufacturers can appropriately listen to the suggestions of consumers during the mid-term change of Sylphy, and optimize and improve the above problems.
