[Automotive House Original Test Drive] In April and September 2013, Changan successively listed the 1.2L and 1.4L models of Small multi -functional car Oliwei, and then there is news that the automatic transmission Oliwei will be on 2014 After half a year, the car will also launch a long version of the model in the future. Recently, we obtained a test drive opportunity to automatically block Oliti from the dealer. On the eve of the listing, take the lead in test drive, take you in advance to feel the specific performance of the new member of the Oleway family, and hurry up to get up with friends.
It is reported that automatic transmission Oliwei uses a 5 -speed AMT gearbox, and the manufacturer names it IMT. The new car will be listed during the Chongqing Auto Show in early June. The 1.4L engine will be used. According to the configuration, the configuration is two types: excellent and luxurious. This time we tested the 1.4L IMT luxury type, which is expected to sell for about 60,000 yuan.
◆ Keep 1.4L manual transmission appearance style
The appearance style of Oliwei 1.2L and 1.4L manual transmission models is different. The former’s style is simple and capable. The latter’s front effect is more tough, and some silver decorative parts and roof luggage racks are added to the lower and rear bumpers. Close to Cross style. The shape of the IMT version chooses the latter that is more in line with the current trend.
“1.2L manual transmission” “1.4L manual transmission”
In terms of shape, the IMT luxury version is consistent with the 1.4L manual enlightenment. The only difference is only the IMT logo at the rear of the car.
Compared with the slight differences in appearance, the interior is relatively different. In terms of the center console, the IMT model is basically consistent with the manual transmission. It still adopts an asymmetric design to deepen the light double -colored combination, which is more popular for young consumers. In addition, the IMT version of the luxury type has also upgraded the steering wheel.
The central control area is divided into two parts, the upper half is the air conditioner outlet and the audio system, and the lower part is the control area of the manual air conditioner. It is not difficult to operate.
◆ Rich storage space
Oliwei is a model with space as a selling point, so its performance in storage space is also good. All places that can be used are set up with different sizes of storage boxes. It is just that the IMT’s high -profile models are still not equipped with a central armrest box, which has become a small regret.
The performance of the space and trunk in the car is the strength of Oliwei. There is no problem with the horizontal space of three adult men in the back row. When the seat is moved to the end, the foot space is equally good. The rear seats can be folded at a ratio of 5: 5. After the folding, the trunk can form a flat floor to facilitate transportation of large items.
◆ Power/test drive experience
The engine equipped with the IMT model is consistent with the 1.4L manual transmission model. The model is EA14FF, the maximum power is 101 horsepower/6000rpm, and the maximum torque is 135 N · m. It is reported that Oliwei’s IMT gearboxes are about 7 kg heavier than the manual gearbox, while the 1.4L manual transmission model is 1110 kg. The quality of the IMT model should be about 1117 kg according to this.
The so -called IMT gearbox of the manufacturer is actually what we usually call AMT. It adds an electric shift mechanism on the basis of ordinary manual gearboxes. sex. At present, the automatic transmission models of Souo and MG3 also use this gearbox.
Below I will introduce its use method. Its starting method is similar to ordinary automatic transmission. First of all, you must step on the brakes and ignite, and then move the gear to the middle driving gear. At this time, “D” is displayed on the dashboard. You can drive in a block.
In the automatic mode, the gearbox is usually gently giving the oil. The gearbox is usually raised at 2300-2500 rpm. The process of separation and binding of the clutch can be felt during the lifting process, so you will feel frustrated. Of course, this is not to avoid it. The method is to need to be familiar with and appreciate the automatic shifting of the driver, and then collect the oil before the rise of the gear, and then continue to refuel after the hanging gear. Essence Compared with the simple manual transmission, the manual mode of IMT liberated your foot, eliminating the trouble of stepping on the clutch and the technique of oil separation. All of this can be completed by the computer.
Many small cars in the same level, including Oliwei, use the suspension combination of the front McPherson rear torque beam. The advantage is that the cost is reduced and the rear space is saved. Although they have the same structure, there are differences in the results of the adjustment. The feeling that Oliwei’s suspension gives me is that the overall style is more stiff. The steering system Oliwei uses EPS electric help. The manufacturer has a relatively sinking adjustment. It is not easy for female car owners to operate, but fortunately, it is uniform to return to positive, and the direction is also at the average level of the same level.
The positioning of Oliwei’s IMT models is very clear, directly pointing target customers to female consumers in second- and third -tier cities, as well as young users who have just taken a limited budget for driver’s license. From the first time in March last year, I saw Oliwei. Its fashionable appearance and interior design, as well as flexible and spacious trunk space, left a deep impression on me. It has met the car purchase needs of most young users. As for the frustration of IMT, we naturally don’t have to have too much requirements. This level of small cars must not be used to drive fiercely. While ensuring cost -effectiveness, driving convenience is improved. After understanding these, the last point is the price. If it is officially launched, its price is within the expected price range at the beginning of our article, then the new member of the Oleway family is worth looking forward to.
