[YesAuto Smart Car Link Evaluation] Networked smart cars are no longer exclusive to mid-to-high-end models. Now more and more family cars with a guide price of only over 100,000 or even tens of thousands are also equipped with smart cars and connected to the cloud. While getting closer and closer, the hardware is also developing in a larger and comprehensive direction. As a family SUV with a guide price of 10.98-15.98 million yuan, the Qoros 7 is one of the few models in the same class with a standard large-size vertical screen in the entire series. What are the unique features of interaction in a size close to a computer monitor? Place? Our task today is to test it.

At present, Qoros Auto does not have many models on the market (one car and two SUVs). From the initial Qoros 3 series to the later Qoros 5 and Qoros 7, the on-board systems of different series models are also different. Are not the same. Qoros 3 has always insisted on using Qoros Yiyun 2.0 system (also known as Qoros MMH multimedia infotainment system), and then Qoros 5 series started to use the same AliOS zebra intelligent system of SAIC, and then watched Zhi7 developed a new system and named it Mr.Q Smart Human-Computer Interaction System. The strategy of “one vehicle, one system” is really confusing. I hope that in the future, Qoros can adjust the system strategy as much as possible. It is possible to unify the intelligent connection system.

Speaking of this set of Mr.Q interactive system, the entire system still has a pretty good performance in the two aspects of interaction and function, especially the large vertical screen and full LCD instrumentation have earned a lot of points for the Qoros 7. The price is considered to be at a leading level. The performance in service and communication is mediocre, and it can only be said that it meets the basic travel needs. In order to make the system display more intuitive, I also took an experience video here for your reference.


Human-vehicle interaction

Let’s take a look at the hardware part first. Perhaps because of the larger size of the rectangular instrument and the central control screen, the Qoros 7 does not integrate the screens in the center console like the Qoros 3 and Qoros 5, but directly. Standing on the center console, it seems a little less aesthetic. The physical button settings are the same as most other smart models. Only a few buttons are set at the bottom of the steering wheel and the center console. More functions are integrated into the interactive large screen. At the same time, the user is guided to use voice command control as much as possible while driving to reduce the amount of trouble. Disturbance of the driver's attention.

The 14.6-inch central control vertical screen that occupies the C position integrates both multimedia and air conditioning control panels. It stands on the central console because it is too large to be embedded in it, which is understandable. The IPS screen has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, and the definition is good. If you use it to play some high-definition videos, I believe you can get good visual effects. Although the screen is large, there are not many functions in the current system, which makes the application page a bit empty. Considering that the internal storage space of the system is 32G, although it is far from the current mobile phones, it is still feasible to add some networked applications in the form of OTA upgrades in the future.

The 12.3-inch full LCD instrument is standard for all systems, and the UI interface design is extremely simple, but the font is a bit small, and the information such as time and temperature is better if you enlarge it. The content that can be displayed by the meter is quite rich, and it can be easily switched or viewed through the physical buttons on the right side of the steering wheel. After setting the navigation destination, it is recommended to turn on the full map mode, so that the route guidance is more intuitive and clear.

In terms of voice commands, the default wake-up word of the system is “Hello, Little Q”, and the system supports continuous voice input, that is, you can continue to say the command without stopping after calling out the wake-up word, and the interaction efficiency is higher. In addition, in the multimedia and navigation interface, the system also has a wake-up-free function, that is, without repeatedly calling out the wake-up words, you can directly say “next song”, “pause playback”, “zoom in/out map” and other commands to operate the corresponding functions .

The large-size LCD instrument and the vertical touch screen make the Qoros 7 obtain ideal scores at the interactive level, and the reasonable physical button layout and natural voice interaction have also obtained good scores. It can be said that in terms of interaction, Qoros 7 does It's great.

Other hardware and software equipment

Since the 1.6T mid-range model tested this time, it is the second-lower version among a total of 6 configurations, so there is still some lack of other hardware facilities. The top version in the car series has a fairly good hardware configuration, such as the popular driving recorder, wireless charging of mobile phones, air purifier + negative ion generator are all standard.

Function realization

Having finished talking about the hardware level, let’s take a look at how Mr.Q system functions perform. Let’s take a look at the entertainment part first. Local multimedia playback includes three parts: radio, Bluetooth/USB playback and local video playback. The first two are basic functions. Needless to say, video playback is still very suitable for Qoros 7, with a large one. It must be a cool thing to play movies and TV series on the screen on the car. The networked entertainment resources come from the two applications of Kuwo Music and Tingban FM, which meet the needs of users for different types of audio such as music, novels, audio books, news and information.

The online navigation of Qoros 7 Mr.Q system chooses AutoNavi. Its functions are as rich as those of Baidu, Tencent and other online navigation software, including road condition query, real-time congestion avoidance/restriction, and remote distribution of mobile apps. The navigation path planning can also be projected to the dashboard, which makes the guidance more convenient and accurate. In addition, the mobile phone can also send the navigation destination and query the real-time location of the vehicle.

Although the 1.6T Escort Elite tested this time is the mid-range version of the three 1.6T models, considering that there are three 1.8T models with higher configuration, the configuration of this car is not particularly high in comparison. Take parking images as an example. The 1.6T Escort Elite comes standard with rear radar and rear images. The 1.8T top version not only has front and rear radars and 360° panoramic images, but also the blind spots on both sides of the body can be viewed on the dashboard. The picture, the smart performance is still good.

The mobile phone App is standard for remote control of the whole system, and it performs well. In addition to the engine ignition/stopping, air conditioning temperature adjustment, window lift and door lock control, the mobile phone application also incorporates sunroof opening and closing and seat heating control. The control range is wide and comprehensive. The system is also equipped with Yilian mobile phone mapping function, but the two more commonly used mapping forms, Apple CarPlay and Baidu CarLife, are not provided in this system.

Service ecology

In terms of services, Qoros 7 has set up rescue services in the Zhilian system. Click the corresponding icons to find the corresponding functions, and guide users to seek official or insurance company rescue through 400 calls. The functions related to travel and payment are currently lacking in Qoros 7, and the system does not support two-way control of hardware devices such as driving recorders and smart homes.

Communication Favorability

In terms of communication favorability, the voice assistant has a strong ability to recognize natural sentences, and has the authority to control devices such as car windows and sunroofs, and performs well. However, although the system has a voice orientation function, in terms of controlling the temperature of the air conditioner, if the position to be adjusted (main driver or co-driver) is not clearly indicated in the instruction, the system will default to the adjusted global temperature or air volume. The logical design can also be done More refined.

The Qoros 7 Mr.Q system has the advantages of a large screen and standard configuration of the system. It is still very eye-catching in the SUV market with a price range of 110-16 million yuan. In terms of functions, the system does a great job in “basic requirements” such as networked music, online navigation, and rescue services. It has complete functions and can be easily controlled by voice. However, at present, Qoros 7 can only meet the basic travel needs of users. The lack of networked service ecology and extensive hardware control is also a consideration for the future Mr.Q system. At the brand level, the installation of multiple sets of interconnected intelligent systems on different models also restricts the development of Qoros brand in intelligent connectivity. We also hope that Qoros will launch a unified system as soon as possible in the future, and it will be more convenient for users. Travel experience.
