Changan Motor Philippines Inc. (CMPI), the official distributor of Changan vehicles in the Philippines, introduces the 5-seat compact SUV that is bound to give you a confidence boost on the road: the CS75 Plus.
Dubbed as Changan’s “intelligent SUV” and recently bagging the Supreme Gold Award at the 2019-2020 International CMF Design Awards in China for acing the stringent six-point criteria of “innovation, aesthetics, functionality, landing stability, environment protection, and emotion,” this fierce newcomer is not playing around with your standards for size and style. In fact, this stunning SUV series has been wowing markets since its debut at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Show and the Frankfurt Motor Show, and at the launch of the second-generation CS75 Plus at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show.
The latest iteration of the CS75 Plus boasts the best of both worlds, bringing together the sporty legacy of its predecessor and Changan’s latest modeling and design language.
From the outside, it already heads with its sinewy exterior and body paint technique that evokes the dynamic flow of liquid metal that is achieved by combining a special aluminum powder and fine pearlescent finish. The purposeful contrast of dark and light highlights the fullness of the modeling surface. Having one of the longest wheelbases around at 2,710mm and a wide exterior of 1,865mm, it cuts an imposing figure on the road. Brilliant LED headlamps with Daytime Running Lights up front, LED tail lamps at the back, bold 18-inch alloy wheels, and a panoramic sun roof wrap up the road warrior style statement. So, if you “graduating” from your “basic” drive, owning a CS75 Plus definitely changes your game.
Inside, the CS75 Plus is equipped with features that are standard for this powerhouse vehicle but which you do not usually find among its peers. The futuristic 7-inch digital instrument cluster not only gives a sharp display of vehicle information; you can also personalize it to your viewing preference. And you won’t get enough of the multi-function 12-inch Touchscreen Multimedia System.
It does not only provide hours on end of on-the-road infotainment via AM/FM radio, audio and video playback, and mobile phone connectivity via the built-in Easy Connection app; the touchscreen is also equipped to give a live image feed from the 360-degree panoramic camera, which comes in handy for safe parking, turning, and backing up. Again, this is a plus for first-time SUV drivers who need clear all-around visibility. What’s more, the driver console is designed to have all the controls within reach—no fumbling around, and the better to keep both hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Now, who says it’s all about the driver? There’s no way passengers get short-changed. Don’t get us started with those plush Nappa grain leather seats. The red-black classic sports vibe is inspired by the racing tradition of Nürburgring and reflects speed and passion, while the electroplated details bespeak ease and effortless luxury. The automatic air-conditioning system does not only provide all-around cooling; it is installed with a certified PM0.1 grade compound anti-bacterial and anti-viral air filter that achieves 97.7% filtration of 0.3-micron particles. This means that Changan models equipped with this filter will give the entire vehicle the safety level of an N95 mask!
Beyond the winning tech features, the CS75 Plus is built to make driving feel more like playing. Starting the engine requires no effort with its Engine Push Start/Stop Button, while the Engine Remote Start function allows you to turn on the engine and air conditioning from the outside.
In action, the CS75 Plus is powered by a turbocharged 1.5L gasoline engine with direct injection mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission system with maximum power of 178ps and maximum torque of 265Nm. But the fun does not stop there because the CS75 Plus is also equipped with the Drive Mode function that lets you choose your driving style for the day–Eco, Normal, or Sport.
The CS75 Plus has your back with its suite of active and passive intelligent safety systems. Standard are the 6-airbag system, Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill Hold Control (HHC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Electronic Parking Brake, a 360° Panoramic Camera, and even a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
As a global strategic car model, the Changan CS75 Plus is all about innovation in design language and intelligent technology, harmonizing form and function in one caring yet powerful space that you can confidently take to any destination.
Change your view of confidence and drive with sheer sophistication. The CS75 Plus 1.5L 6AT variant is yours at an introductory price of P1,299,000, and available in commanding shades of White, Gray, Black, and Blue.
Changan vehicles come with the standard 5-year/150,000-kilometer warranty and free Preventive Maintenance Services (PMS) labor for the first year (or up to 20,000 kilometers).
