Changan CS55 Plus: tech to surprise
You enjoy being different. And you enjoy life on an even keel as well as during its crazier moments. The New CS55 Plus, Changan Auto’s recent addition to its model lineup, is here to keep up with you. Its advanced tech features surprise with the promise of a mannered and stable ride while letting you explore your wild side.
Expect quiet, clean, and fuel-efficient power from the 1.5-liter Blue Core Turbocharged Gasoline Direct injection (TGDi) that delivers 188ps at 5,500rpm and up to 300Nm of torque at 1,500~4000rpm. This next-generation Blue Core engine puts into play three key fuel efficiency technologies, 350 bar high-pressure direct injection, industry-leading low friction technology, and advanced thermal management system, to make sure you maximize your fuel to the last drop.
Appreciate Changan’s singular next-gen technology from inside.
Up front, the futuristic cockpit is designed for relaxed but focused driving. All controls are within easy reach. The compact steering wheel houses the buttons for the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and infotainment systems while the well-laid-out dual screen integrates the 10.25-inch LCD digital instrument cluster and 12.3-inch touch display infotainment system. Voice Control has you operating the windows, sunroof, air conditioning, infotainment, and in-call system, hands-free!
On top, the stylish panoramic sunroof automatically shuts when accidentally left open or when it senses a downpour, thanks to the Rain-Sensing function.
Boosted for lasting safety
Changan’s signature Safe-Tech system gets a thoughtful, proactive boost in the CS55 Plus.
The Automatic Emergency Brake (AEB) System* helps you assess the likeliness of hitting a car or a pedestrian in front. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) * complements the AEB by detecting slow-moving cars or large barriers in front and alerts the driver of a possible collision.
The Lane Departure Warning (LDW)** and Lane Keep Assist (LKA)** work together to alert you should you suddenly switch lanes.
The Integrated Adaptive Cruise Control (IACC) with Traffic Jam Assist (TJA)** is equipped with a Stop and Go function that lets your vehicle run safely at your preferred speed while automatically adjusting to the speed or movement of the vehicle ahead, which is especially helpful during heavy traffic.
Need a view of the outside right on your monitor? You have built-in eyes right here—no need to spend on a dash cam. The 360-degree panoramic camera with HD Driving Recorder System* gives a 540-degree virtual view of your immediate surroundings. And should the vehicle suddenly brake, it automatically saves 30 seconds of video–15 seconds prior to braking and 15 seconds after.
Overall, the CS55 Plus cuts a striking figure on the road for its Euro “Ring” design. It is a car that is meant “to be seen.” But it does an even better job “seeing”—that is, looking after your safety and that of other road users. Take its lights system. Sleek daytime running lights (DRL) complement the overall look and, more importantly, cover a longer distance to help you see better when it gets dark. The Intelligent High Beam Assist** automatically switches from high to low beam, sparing oncoming vehicles from nasty glare. And the Follow-Me-Home Delay feature keeps the headlights on for a few seconds while the vehicle is parked to help you see your way to your front door.
It also pays to know that the CS55 Plus is covered by the Changan 5-Year or 150,000km warranty and Changan’s Vital 5 After Service that ensures a perfectly wild and mannered driving experience for years to come.
