  7. The rivalry! Wuling Hongguang...

[YesAuto Model PK] Actually, for commercial vehicle articles, I don’t need to have such a strong gunpowder topic, but this time it’s a battle between SAIC-GM-Wuling and Changan Automobile. The two brands started fighting each other and then Wuling. Yiqi Juechen left Chang'an behind, and the competition between them has never ceased. No, in the face of the strong advantages of SAIC-GM-Wuling, Changan has continued to make efforts in the micro-facet market. After the launch of Changan Star 2 and Taurus, it sent a new member, Changan Uno, to Wuling’s most popular model, Wuling Hongguang’s. With all-round challenges around, let’s take a look at whether Changan Uno has such capital to compete with Wuling Hongguang.

The two models we compared are SAIC-GM-Wuling Hongguang 1.4L Comfort and Changan Uno 1.5L Elite. The price difference between the two cars is 1,900 yuan, and they are the best-selling models of their respective models.

● Appearance comparison: Wuling Hongguang is softer, Changan Uno is tougher

In the past, in people’s minds, all kinds of micro-faced models were focused on sourcing and practicality. When buying, no one paid attention to their appearance as if they were buying cars, so the micro-faced models on the market looked almost the same. . However, when Wuling Hongguang went public, everyone knew that the original micro-face can also be made with its own characteristics. Compared with Wuling Hongguang, Changan Uno, the latecomer, seems to have put more effort in appearance. The tough appearance can please many young car owners.

From the perspective of body size, Changan Uno only went on the market two years after Wuling Hongguang, giving it a full advantage, surpassing Wuling Hongguang in terms of length, width, height and wheelbase, but fortunately, the gap is wide. It's not very big, the biggest value is the height is 7 cm higher than Wuling Hongguang.

Wuling Hongguang 1.4L Comfort Type uses Triangle tires with specifications of 185/65 R14, and the market price is about 250 yuan, while low-profile models only use specifications of 175/70 R14 tires. Aluminum alloy wheels appear in addition to the lowest configuration. On all models. Changan Uno 1.5L Elite Edition is equipped with Dongfeng brand tires, the specification is 195/60 R15, the market price is about 260 yuan, and the aluminum alloy wheels are the same as Wuling Hongguang, except for the lowest equipped models.

Appearance summary:

On the whole, Changan Uno, since it was launched later than Wuling Hongguang, has done enough investigations and studies in all aspects before going public. The appearance design is more robust and capable than Wuling Hongguang, which is not small for young car owners; In terms of appearance configuration, both cars are at the same level.

​● Interior comparison: Wuling Hongguang is concise, Changan Uno is stylish

Like the appearance, the interior of the micro-faced model can only be entered after Wuling Hongguang’s subversion. The interior of Wuling Hongguang still looks slightly simpler, not as stylish and layered as Changan Uno, but The interiors of the two cars give the impression that the plastic feel is heavier.

In terms of interior materials, due to cost constraints, the two cars are made of hard plastic materials, and the feel is similar. In order to look more textured, they both have some texture processing on the panels.

​ In terms of the feel of the buttons, the two cars showed the same results. The gears of the knobs are not very clear and the sound is relatively loud. Uno's knobs and buttons look more refined. In terms of sound source expansion, Wuling Hongguang and Changan Uno have adopted the same configuration: a single-disc CD player with a USB interface. These two methods are sufficient.

Interior summary:

From the performance of the two cars, Changan Uno's situation is better, whether it is interior design, instrument panel shape, button layout and practicality, it is better than the first launched Wuling Hongguang. We found that Changan Automobile has made considerable progress in the interior in recent years. Wuling Hongguang is the first to make the interior of the car micro-faced, but Changan Uno has made a big improvement on this basis.

● Space and power system

Changan Uno fully surpassed Wuling Hongguang in terms of body size, so in terms of internal space, it also showed corresponding advantages, especially the head space brought by 7 cm higher than Wuling Hongguang. The experiencer was a woman with a height of 165cm, wearing a thicker down jacket.

On the three rows of seats of the two cars, we have carried out corresponding experiences. The final results are similar to expectations. Changan Uno has beaten Wuling Hongguang in each space comparison, but Wuling Hongguang's space is for the average driver. That is enough, but Uno gives you more on this basis.

​ From the perspective of the storage space of the two cars, Changan Uno still has the upper hand. It can provide up to 7 storage spaces, while Wuling Hongguang can provide front-row passengers with less storage space than Changan Uno. There are many, and the rationality is a little bit poor, and there is no design cup holder position on the front door panel and the rear door panel.

● Power comparison: Changan Uno has a larger displacement

As a micro-face, compared to other models, the engine displacement of the two cars is relatively large. Among them, Wuling Hongguang uses 1.2L and 1.4L naturally aspirated engines with maximum power of 86 horsepower and 102 horsepower, respectively. Displacement and data are smaller than the 92 horsepower and 106 horsepower of Changan Uno's 1.3L and 1.5L naturally aspirated engines.

In terms of suspension, the two cars also show amazing similarities. Both the front Macpherson and the rear five-link semi-independent suspension are used on the high-profile models, which are more comfortable than the front Macpherson used on the low-profile models. The semi-independent suspension with leaf springs is much better, but the load-carrying capacity has decreased.
