Recently, Dongfeng Fengshen officially stated that its compact SUV, the new Dongfeng Fengshen AX5, was officially launched. It launched a total of 3 models with a price range of 85,900 to 105,900 yuan. At the same time, the front face adopts a brand-new design style, which improves the fashion sense of the car. In terms of power, it uses a 1.4T engine with a 6DCT gearbox.
In terms of appearance, the front face of the new car draws on the design style of the Dongfeng Demeanor MX3 that was unveiled but not yet on the market. It is similar to a flat shield-shaped front grille, and with the three-stage air intake shape below, it looks better than the current model. The model is younger.
The sides and rear of the body are consistent with the current model. Specifically, its overall outline is relatively tough, and a straight body waistline runs directly from the front wheel eyebrow to the body D, making the car look more compact. The shape of the rear of the car is relatively moderate. Its license plate area adopts a hexagonal shape, and with the narrow and long taillights on both sides, the layering of the rear is improved. At the same time, the silver guard plate under the bumper strengthens the SUV attributes of the car to a certain extent.
In terms of interior, the new car maintains the design style of the old model as a whole, and optimizes and adjusts many details. For example, the car uses a thinner floating central control LCD screen, combined with a brand-new three-spoke multi-function steering wheel, which makes the new car look more fashionable overall. At the same time, the new car also adds chrome-plated elements to the air-conditioning outlet, gear handle area, around the air-conditioning knob mechanism and the door trim for embellishment, making the visual effect more youthful. It is worth mentioning that the car’s central control system adopts the WindLink Lite version system, which supports voice control, 4G network, WiFi hotspot, Baidu CarLife and other functions, which improves the driving experience of consumers.
The seat and space are the same as the current model. The seats are replaced with new color schemes. The rear seats are equipped with child seat interfaces, but there are only two headrests and no central armrest. In terms of body size, its length, width and height are 4501/1806/1650mm respectively, and the wheelbase is 2630mm. It is positioned as a compact SUV.
In terms of power, the new Dongfeng Fengshen AX5 is equipped with a DFMA14T 1.4T engine with a maximum power of 140 horsepower and a peak torque of 196 Nm. In terms of transmission, the new car will continue to be matched with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed wet dual-clutch gearbox. In terms of suspension, the new car adopts a front MacPherson independent suspension and a rear torsion beam non-independent suspension. The steering system is EPS electric power steering.
