Changan Auchan's impressive performance in the local market is crying out to bring new models to Russia. Yet the manufacturer is honing its own models, as the statistics prove. Last year, total sales of the brand amounted to 150,000 units, and in two months of this year, more than 50,000 vehicles have already been sold. According to statistics, the Changan Auchan X7 SUV was chosen as the most attractive car. In this regard, the manufacturer presented an upgraded version, which received the prefix Geeker. The model has not gone on sale yet, but official dealers are already collecting applications for pre-orders. The pre-sale price of the SUV is said to be 115,900 Yuan, equivalent to 1,333,000 Rubles.
The Changan Auchan X7 Geeker received serious differences from its predecessor. First of all, it was about the advent of "intelligence". The driver gets access to a face scan. As a result, not only do the doors unlock, but the front seat willingly slides back to facilitate entry. With the help of gestures, it will be possible to control some functions and adjust the chairs without additional manipulation. The car recognizes the owner by his face and quickly adjusts to his preferences. Several premium brands have similar systems, but no one has managed to lower the price so much. Multimedia controls are gesture-based, so you're not distracted from moving around. At the same time, face tracking systems have a practical purpose: they can detect the state of fatigue and signal if necessary.
Particular attention has been paid to the On-style network connection system. It greatly facilitates the "understanding" of commands, as it recognizes 15 types of dialects and accents. The manufacturer claims that the system of Changan Auchan X7 Geeker is able to recognize both short and long commands. By voice, you can turn on the navigation, lower/raise the windows, change the operating mode of the air conditioner. If the system really works smoothly, then the Changan Auchan X7 Geeker is assured of a top spot in the segment.
Technically, the crossover will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 178 hp. With a torque of 265 Nm. Along with it is a 7-speed robot with a pair of China-made wet clutches. A multi-link independent rear suspension is used as the basis. The final overweight for buying a cross was 12 free maintenance services provided within 6 years of purchase. The SUV will go on sale in April.
