[YesAuto Evaluation] As the second mini-car launched by Haima Zhengzhou, Haima Aishang was officially launched at a price of 3.58-4.58 not long ago. Like its predecessor, Haima Prince, Aishang is also an entry-level model that focuses on second and third-tier cities. Scooter. Since there is not much publicity in the early stage of the market, the mouth-watering name of Aishang is quite mysterious to most consumers. From the promotional materials, Aishang has a brand-new exterior interior design and a 1.0L engine independently developed by Haima. So what is the ability of this new friend in the mini-car market, and what advantages does it have compared to competing products at the same level? Let's find out through the test report below.

Regarding the experience of the interior part, you can refer to the following article first:

power system

The brand new 1.0L inline four-cylinder engine is independently developed by Haima. It has 16 valves with dual overhead camshafts and a cast iron cylinder block. It uses variable valve timing technology. Due to the high-rotation adjustment, the engine also squeezes out more High power and torque, compared with Haima Prince (61hp/85Nm), it has a significant improvement. The maximum power is 75hp (55kW)/6000rpm, and the maximum torque is 96Nm/4000rpm. It is matched with a 5-speed manual Gearbox. Just look at the parameters, this 1.0L model can be considered in the same class, and theoretically, the in-line four-cylinder structure will also be better than the 3-cylinder engine of the same displacement in terms of vibration control.

Of course, looking at the data, we can’t make a conclusion about its real performance, but for consumers at this level, motivation is obviously not the focus of their attention. Whether fuel-saving is good or not is an important criterion for evaluating their quality. Next, we still Let's take a look at its fuel consumption performance.

Excellent fuel consumption!

During the two-day test, we drove a total of 181.8km with Aishang, which included about 20% of the congested road conditions, and the rest was a normal loop. The load situation was 2 people, and the air conditioner was turned on 80% of the time, which consumed a total of 9.1 With L gasoline, the average fuel consumption per 100 kilometers is 5.0L, which is an ideal result even for miniature cars that are generally very fuel-efficient. Considering that the test road conditions are relatively smooth, the fuel consumption may be higher than our test value in actual use, but it should not be a problem to control it below 6L.

Reasonable fuel consumption reference values (non-rigid indicators) given by us for each class of models

Purely economical minicars: no more than 7 liters/100 kilometers

Small car/ hybrid : no more than 8 liters/100 kilometers

Compact/light SUV: no more than 10 liters/100 kilometers

Medium-sized car/medium-sized SUV: no more than 12 liters/100 kilometers

Other models: no more than 15 liters/100 kilometers

Daily driving experience

The concept of easy driving is nothing more than two points for a manual transmission trolley. The light and easy-to-handle clutch allows for smooth and comfortable shifting. In Aishang, both of these points can be said to be well done. The clutch is lighter, the stroke is moderate, the coupling point is rearward and it is easy to “find”, so that the adjustment can be easily started without precise oil-release coordination, even if it is said. Novice drivers can get started quickly. The feel of the 5-speed manual gearbox is my favorite part. Although the entry stroke is too long, the gears are clear and without dryness. Even if we test a new car that has not been run-in, the entry is very neat. Take a closer look. There is even a small sense of inhalation, which is quite rare for a mini car with a price of less than 50,000.

For Aishang's weight of less than 900kg, this 75-horsepower 1.0L engine should be more than enough, but its actual performance is a bit disappointing. Compared with Prince Seahorse, the additional 14 horsepower did not bring much improvement to the acceleration ability of Aishang. Due to the high-rotation adjustment of the engine, it is easier to maintain the speed above 2500 rpm in daily driving. The power will increase after 3000 rpm, and the power will not decay prematurely at high revolutions. . However, the noise and vibration of the engine will become significantly louder at this time, and the feeling of heavy thunder and small rain is still inevitable.

The steering of Aishang is worthy of our recognition. Although there is a lot of frame in the middle phase, the steering ratio is very even when cornering, and it feels very flexible. The feedback of mechanical power steering is also very delicate, and the overall performance is satisfactory. The only shortcoming is that the heavy feel makes it difficult for you to complete the chic movement of kneading the library with one hand, and this is not good news for female consumers.

In order to maximize the interior space of the car, the front seats are designed to be very thin, but the ride comfort of the driver's seat is not as bad as expected, and the degree of fit to the waist and back is still good. Another point worth mentioning is that Aishang’s air conditioner has a good cooling effect, is fast, and has little effect on power after turning on the air conditioner.

Although the entire chassis of Aishang is relatively thin, the overall feel is good, and the suspension travel is long and soft and hard, which can filter out some large road bumps well. However, Aishang still has a small problem in the matching of shock absorbers and springs. When driving in an urban area, even if the road surface is in good condition, the overly sensitive spring will still bring some unnecessary fine vibrations.

In addition, the high-speed stability of Aishang needs to be strengthened. Just maintaining a speed of 80km and cruising on the loop is enough to make you nervous, but for this class of cars that are mainly used for urban transportation, we can't demand it. How high can it have high-speed stability. After some relatively large bumps, the suspension can calmly resolve most of the vibrations, but then the four corners of the carriage will emit abnormal sounds like surround sound, and the overall assembly process needs to be improved.

The performance test results are not the focus of attention for this level of mobility cars, and we don't need to be too entangled in their performance. The specific test results listed below are for reference only.

Acceleration: 14.92 seconds

The acceleration result is close to 15 seconds, which is a reasonable result for its displacement. At the start, the speed is controlled at about 4000 rpm where the maximum torque appears. The tires quickly resume grip after violent skidding, and the acceleration feeling in 1st gear is still It is abundant, but after shifting to 2nd gear, it tends to be flat, and the good performance of the gearbox makes two shifts without wasting too much time.

In the microcars we tested, the 1.3-displacement manual transmission model usually got the performance in just over 13 seconds, and the Aishang with a displacement of only 1.0 finally ran out of 14.92 seconds, which was also within our expectations, which was quite satisfactory. Achievement.

Brake: 46.06 meters

The brake pedal of Aishang appears to be a bit loose, with a certain empty position in the front section, and the foot feel is relatively ordinary. However, when braking at full capacity, the entire system can still provide sufficient braking force, but the four Giti tires with a width of 175 broke the limit early in the early stage of braking. During the braking process, the braking force fluctuates greatly, and ABS also works. Very frequently. Although the body is very light and has little inertia, Aishang’s braking performance is still unsatisfactory, and the 46.06m performance did not meet our passing standards. It is worth mentioning that the entire braking system of Aishang needs several warm-ups before it can enter the state. The last few braking distances are all about 45 meters.

For cars of this level, they say that their main task is daily transportation, and we don't have to have too high expectations for their noise control. Obviously, Aishang’s control of all kinds of noise at high speed is obviously a little less interesting. When the speed exceeds 80km/h, you must increase the volume to ensure normal communication.

to sum up:

From the perspective of daily use, Haima Aishang can be said to be a very competent city scooter: easy and flexible driving feeling, gearbox and steering adjustments are excellent in the same class of cars, very suitable for the first time Consumers who buy cars, in addition, in terms of fuel consumption, Aishang did not let us down. The fuel consumption of 5.0L per 100 kilometers is also considered an excellent performance in mini cars, and the interior space of small cars is a big advantage. .

Of course, it also has its shortcomings: for example, the braking performance is not very strong, the interior details are a bit careless, and there is still a certain gap in the overall assembly process compared with the domestic mainstream independent brands, and the noise control is not satisfactory. .

Having said that, although the budget for buying a car of 40,000 to 50,000 is not much, there are not many models available on the market. For consumers of this level who are price sensitive, they will think twice before buying a car. . Relatively speaking, QQ3, Lechi and F0 have a large number of old Jianghu markets, stable quality and good reputation, and relatively low prices. They are relatively worry-free and affordable choices, while Benben MINI, JAC Yueyue and Haval M1 are It is designed with a very distinctive model, which can show its personality while having a good price-performance ratio, and is more suitable for young consumers. Of course, if the budget is sufficient, I would prefer to choose a high-quality car like Alto.

Let’s take a look at Haima Aishang. In fact, in addition to the braking and assembly process that needs to be strengthened, its performance in all aspects is in line with the level of this class of models, but its price of 3.58-45,800 yuan is relatively uncompetitive. Strong, you have to know that the Alto 1.0 manual luxury version equipped with leather seats only needs 49,900. For a mini-car, whether it can achieve good sales results, cost-effectiveness is the most important, if Aishang can show more sincerity in the sales terminal, it will still be a product worthy of our recommendation.
