As early as the opening of the Shanghai Auto Show in early April this year, I participated in the new car launch meeting of Haval F7x in Chengdu. At that time, rows of new cars were parked neatly together, and the colors were very eye-catching. Compared with other models of the Haval brand, the youthful vitality displayed by the F7x can be described as "first-hand", but it is a pity that the test drive will not be arranged at the launch meeting, so it is a pity that we have not been able to experience it on the road.
Recently received news, F7x test drive is finally here Arrived in Shanghai. With excitement and anticipation, I also got this test drive car. So the question is, can the F7x test drive experience be the same as its appearance and bring us subversive feelings? thisIt's up to the master to announce for everyone!
The "most beautiful boy" in the entire Haval 4S store!
In order to get this F7x as soon as possible, I am 8 in the morning I arrived at the Haval 4S store before the point, but the employees work at 8:45, so I can only wander around the 4S store and wait for them to arrive. In the new car delivery area, rows of new cars are waiting to be handed over to their owners. Among them, two F7x are particularly eye-catching. Compared with ordinary Haval models or the black or white body color, the eye-catching blue and red make people notice them from 100 meters away.
If the Haval F7x uses a striking body color to attract your attention 100 meters away, then it uses design to enhance this attraction 10 meters away. From the front of the car, it does not seem to be very different from the F7 that was launched last year. The large hexagonal air intake grille and irregular headlights create a "fierce" visual effect. However, once it is turned to the side of the body , You will find the difference of F7x, the C-pillar is greatly inclined, connecting the roof from the B-pillar to the rear of the car, forming a beautiful arc. Coupled with the slightly upturned rear wing of the car, that A sense of youthful movement came out all of a sudden, and it would be appropriate to describe it as "small BMW X6".
Of course, the 19-inch complex multi-spoke wheels are also very eye-catching. A rough look at it It’s a five-spoke design, but it’s only after a closer look.Now, there are two thin, small spokes beside the thick 5 spokes. This design not only ensures the strength of the wheel hub during operation, but also takes into account the visual effect to the greatest extent, which can be described as multiple actions.
The design of the rear of the car is most appropriate to describe it as full and down-to-earth Compared with the nearly vertical trunk door of an ordinary SUV, the F7x has a certain angle of inclination, and the actual look and feel is more like a hatchback sedan that "eats the heightening film". The detailed design of the rear also highlights the sincerity of Haval designers. For example, the two lines of the rear wing and the bottom edge of the trunk divide its rear into three parts, the upper, middle and lower parts, and the sense of hierarchy is very obvious. The details are also unambiguous, from top to bottom chrome-plated luggage rack, shark fin radio antenna, high LED brake lights, chrome trim strips running through the rear of the car along with the tail lights, etc., all highlight the delicate sense of this car.
Of course the fake exhaust decoration at the rear of the car makes me not Too acceptable, although Audi and Volkswagen have been using it in the past two years. In fact, this 2.0T version of the F7x itself has two genuine exhaust pipes, but they are hidden inside the rear bumper by the designer, hiding the real ones and making two fake ones. It feels like this design is a bit of a waste of money. .
Exquisite interiors in line with "Big Brother" WEY
I have experienced both Haval H6 and WEY VV7. Although this F7x bears the Haval logo, its interior level is closer to WEY. Why is that? I sit in the driving position of F7x, and almost all the visible places on the center console are covered by soft materials, such as the black area above the center console, the brown-red area on both sides of the handlebar, and the black area on the upper edge of the door. Etc.
And these soft materials are all It has first-class workmanship, fine stitching and soft padding. If you are blindfolded, you would not think that this is a domestic SUV worth more than 100,000.
Of course, as a sporty SUV, some identity elements are naturally indispensable on F7x. We all know Mercedes-Benz AMG models are very proud to embroider the logo on the seat backs of the driver and co-pilot. This F7x has the same effect, but it is not a logo, but a sporty line of gray and white thickness. Of course, this These lines also appear on the seat leg supporting position and the door panel decoration, creating a strong sporty atmosphere.
After talking about the designAs for the workmanship, let’s talk about the configuration that car owners at this level are very concerned about. First of all, the manual shift paddles on the flat-bottom steering wheel feel very good. Regardless of the shift speed, the light metal material plus the right damping feel makes people love it with just a few touches.
Followed by the electronic exchange similar to the BMW "drumstick" The gear lever, for a person who is accustomed to mechanical levers, can complete the switch of R\D\N gears between lightly pushing and dialing, which is simply refreshing. Electronic handbrake and Autohold are all available. Between the air conditioning control area and the driving control area, there is also a wireless charging area for mobile phones. The measured charging speed is quite fast.
Of course, it’s okay if your phone doesn’t support wireless charging, because the storage area under the wireless charging area There are also two USB ports and a cigarette lighter power port at the front of the object slot. The two USB ports are also very intimately designed with lighting devices, so that people can find them at a glance in the dark environment.
Don’t worry about space performance at all.
Many owners of coupe-type SUVs are worried about the performance of the rear space. The reason is simple. The beautiful back shape directly invades the firstHeadroom for second-row passengers. Although this worry is excusable, it is completely redundant on the F7x model. The designer uses methods such as hollowing out the roof, sinking the seat, and thinning the seat cushion to control the head space in the car to a very sufficient Within range. With my height of 173cm, there is still a distance between the top of the head and the roof of the car after sitting upright, so the head space of passengers with a height of less than 185cm will not be a problem.
For the owners of joint venture cars, especially German joint venture cars That said, the rear center bump is always an annoying thing, which will seriously affect the comfort of the rear passengers. But on the Haval F7x, this annoying thing has completely disappeared, and the back floor is flat! Pure flat! which isEven the passengers sitting in the middle can also have the comfort that the joint venture car envy. Not only that, the Haval F7x also takes care of the rear passengers very well, not to mention the air-conditioning outlets with adjustable air volume and direction, and the rear seat heating is also "arranged".
Many people will appreciate the practicality of a coupe SUV Sexually questioned, thinking that the trunk space has been cut off, and there must not be too many things. Is this really true? Open the trunk of the F7x, put down the second row of seats, and a space large enough to sleep a person comes out. If you remove the partitions in the picture again, although the refrigerator will not fit in, it is more than enough to carry a TV and washing machine when you move by yourself or your relatives and friends.
The actual fuel consumption results are unexpected.
I thought this one was self-respecting The top-mounted four-wheel drive model with more than 1.7 tons will have a heavy driving experience. I did not expect to feel that its handling is very easy when the vehicle is moved out of the parking space. The directional assist is adjusted very lightly, and a little finger can turn the steering wheel in a stationary state; and the adjustment of the throttle force is also very light, and the power is endless with a light touch, and it does not look like a big car at all.
I am even more surprisedYes, this domestic coupe SUV, which sells for more than 100,000 yuan, actually uses Michelin PRIMACY 4 tires with a specification of 225/55 R19. You know, the single price of this tire on Jingdong is more than 1,200 yuan, which shows that Haval has really made a lot of money.
Although the tuning of the chassis suspension is still more comfortable, But already can clearly feel leaning in the direction of movement. In the face of road conditions such as manhole covers or speed bumps, the F7x chassis rebounds quickly and is not muddy. The high-speed cornering chassis can also control the SUV's high center of gravity problem within a reasonable range.
Of course, compared to power, handling, and chassis, what everyone cares about most is fuel consumption. After picking up the car, I directly cleared fuel consumption information B. After a long-distance test drive of more than 80 kilometers, the overall fuel consumption obtained is 10.5L/100km. It should be understood that this 80 kilometers was measured during the morning peak time around 9 o'clock in Shanghai, and often a traffic light has to wait twice. Three times. If the car environment is relatively smooth, the fuel consumption of F7x should still have a lot of room to drop.
Write at the end
Discuss the product from the price All powers are "rogues". The official price of this top-equipped four-wheel drive version of the Haval F7x is only 154,900 yuan. What can you buy with this money? Four Michelin PRIMACY 4 tires, 2.0T high-power engine, 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, four-wheel drive system and smart car system, seat ventilation, LED headlights, 360-degree surround view, etc., of course, and of course, the appearance, workmanship and Materials. In this way, the price-performance ratio of Haval F7x is enough to rank in the first camp of Chinese brand models.
