Changan Yida, The Newest ICE-Powered Sedan From China

Author: |

The new Yida, despite having a more electric vehicle-like appearance, is part of Changan Automobile's ongoing effort to increase its lineup of gasoline sedans sold under the Changan name. Between the Changan Eado and the Changan Raeton will be where the Yida is situated.

The Changan Yida is a stylish and athletic sedan with dimensions of 4770 mm in length, 1840 mm in width, and 1440 mm in height with a 2765 mm wheelbase. Based on Changan's brand-new front-wheel drive "Ark" platform, which accommodates both gasoline and plug-in hybrid vehicles, the Changan Yida is a compact car. A number of new Changan-branded vehicles, including crossovers, SUVs, and an even larger sedan, will be supported on the platform.


The Changan Yida sports a stylish spoiler on the back and a roof line that slopes. The black band over the front fender that extends from the headlights to almost 3/4 of the hood is the design element that stands out the most. With 18-inch alloy wheels, black window frames dimmed lighting, and completely false exhaust pipe tips, the sporty motif is continued. Additionally, it has certain upscale features like the pop-out door handles and the unique-looking brake light on the roof.

The gear selector is situated on the middle stack, directly in front of the 13.2 floating portrait-oriented touch screen, which serves as the main piece of the interior. Changan Yida's interior features a multi-layered dashboard with a 10.25-inch instrument panel almost at the top, behind a double-spoke multi-functional steering wheel with a flat top and bottom.


A 1.5 liter turbocharged "Blue Whale" engine with 170 horsepower and 260 Nm of maximum torque powers the Changan Yida. The engine is connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. 5.99 liters of fuel are consumed per 100 kilometers, which is respectable but not particularly low.
