The Changan CS95 SUV has been launched on the Chinese auto market, looking very clean here in white. Price starts at 159.800 yuan and ends at 229.800 ($23.185 – 33.342). The CS95 is the largest passenger car Changan Automotive has ever made. It will compete with cars like the Trumpchi GS8 and the Haval H8.
Design clearly influenced by Range Rover. Large overhang rear and front.
The CS95 is available as a five or a seven-seater.
Power comes from a 2.0 turbo with a hefty 233 horses and 380nm, mated to a six-speed automatic ‘box, sending power to all four wheels via Changan’s NexTrac AWD system. Interestingly, Changan says that their self-developed TF-81SC gearbox can handle up to 740nm. They better prove that with a V8 version of the CS95!
Size: 4949/1930/1785, and wheelbase is 2810.
The dash is a bit too gray but Changan tried to sex it up with some wood and a shiny panel on the center stack. There inside sits the infotainment system with a 10 inch screen. The infotainment system comes with a 360° camera system, Baidu CarLife and WiFi.
Analogue dials with a very clear TFT in between.
The screen does not touch. Functions are controlled by the knob and buttons below it.
Loads of space on the second row as demonstrated by this gentleman.
Third row only for the short-legged, and with the seats up there isn’t much…
… space left for the beer.
Wheels could be a little bit wider.
