A Winning Year for Changan CS35 Plus

The Changan CS35 Plus continues to make waves among car enthusiasts for its sleek European looks, refined interiors, fuel-efficiency, and a clean, powerful drive.

Locally, Changan’s “interactive and social SUV,” captured the public eye at the very first Changan Nationwide Test Drive which took it on a three-month tour North to South of the Philippines from January to March last year.

Further proving its engine power was the punishing 122-day, 100,000-kilometer (km) endurance test drive conducted from May to July 2020 on diverse terrain and under different driving conditions. After completing the run, with standard periodic maintenance every 10,000 km, the CS35 Plus emerged unscathed and in excellent driving condition.

This was followed by a fuel economy run with experts from the Automobile Association of the Philippines (APP) last July 20-22, 2021, where the CS35 Plus yielded a fuel consumption of 21.432 km/L on the highway, travelling 180,652 km along Balagtas NLEX Northbound to SCTEX Tarlac Terminus, going to Bulacan, passing through NLEX, to Clark Spur Road, SCTEX, and back. The AAP also tested the CS35 Plus for city driving last August 10, 2021, running 90.8 km through Makati, Pasay, Manila and Quezon City and back, and generating 13.548 km/L. Said result impressed all the more because the AAP used the endurance test unit which already logged 107 km prior to the fuel economy run.*

At the heart of the CS35 Plus’ winning performance is the patented Changan BlueCore engine technology that boasts a powerful, clean, and quiet driving experience. The optimized internal combustion system reduces fuel consumption by 20% and carbon emissions by 40% without compromising the vehicle’s overall performance. Changan’s Blue Core today counts among China’s Top 10 engines and has surpassed, among others, the National Noise First-Class Evaluation Standard.

In 2021, the CS35 Plus received global accolade, headlined by top scores from the 2020 J.D. Power China Initial Quality Study (IQS), which measures new vehicle quality in the key aspects of design and defects or malfunctions, and top segment ranking in the 2020 J.D. Power China Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study, which measures emotional attachment and level of excitement of new vehicle owners in their first six months of ownership. 

While the power, stability, reliability, and fuel efficiency of the Changan 1.5T BlueCore high pressure direct injection engine, broke the Guinness World Record’s “Longest Live Video Broadcasting” challenge with the engine running non-stop, live and online, for more than 250 hours at a sustained speed of 5500 rpm. 

The CS35 Plus takes pride in premium features that give it a definite edge over vehicles of its class and price tag: 

The tough sporty design makes it an ideal adventure companion. Its 1.4L Turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection (T-GDi) engine is made for more air intake, providing more efficient combustion, resulting in increased power and torque output while lessening fuel consumption. This is complemented by the 7-speed Wet type Dual Clutch Transmission for fast shifting and excellent fuel efficiency. 

The generous space and legroom, plush leather seats, Auto Climate Control, and panoramic sunroof make for long, comfortable drive. While the certified PM0.1 grade compound anti-bacterial and anti-viral air filter gives the entire vehicle the safety level of an N95 mask. 

The 6-Airbag System protects driver and passengers in the event of a collision. The Reverse Camera, Reverse Sensors, Blind Spot Camera and Monitor, Hill Descent Control (HDC), Hill Hold Control (HHC), Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and Electronic Parking Brake are all designed for confidence on the road.
