The 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show kicked off on November 18, 2016. Changan Automobile presented its distinguishing models. The brand-new flagship SUV CS95 - equipped with China's most powerful Blue Core 2.0 TGDI engine - debuted as the highlight of the Changan display.
As the Chinese auto industry's sales leader, Changan has always been devoted to independent R&D capability, continuous innovation, and the advancement of the national auto industry. Six years of intensive effort resulted in the development of the Changan CS95 - our high performance full-size flagship SUV. CS95 represents the highest level and greatest power of Chinese automotive manufacturing. This spacious SUV ushers in a new market segment for independent-brand large SUVs.
Freedom - China's strongest "core"
Over the past six years, Changan has conducted 100% positive research and development of the Blue Core 2.0 TGDI engine. Most of its development was undertaken by the Changan UK R&D Center. The elite research and development team consists of experts who have worked at Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford, BMW, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and other famous automobile companies. Seventy-four patent applications have been filed relative to this engine. Of these, 24 are invention patents. The Blue Core 2.0 TGDI engine is considered to be the strongest engine domestically and the leading one worldwide. With 233 (171 kW) maximum horsepower, the powertrain produces 360 Nm of torque when under 1750 rpm. In sudden acceleration below 2000 rpm, the super boost mode is activated. In this state, the engine can instantly produce an impressive 380 Nm of torque.
Enjoyment - Spacious, quiet, and comfortable
CS95's dimensions are approximately 4949 mm x 1930 mm x 1785 mm, making it the best in its category. With seating for seven, CS95's comfort is at the same level of C-grade luxury cars and large SUVs priced over 400,000 RMB. Vibration damping material is applied throughout most of the car body so that ultra muting is guaranteed. In addition, perfect sealing properties and NVH quality reach the level of joint venture cars in the same category.
Driving - Superior control and performance
CS95 is equipped with an Aisin TF-81SC 6-speed tiptronic transmission. Aisin's globally leading technologies and guaranteed quality enable efficient and smooth operation. Chassis tuning technology engineered by the Detroit-based Changan US R&D Center enhances vehicle performance.
Fun - Topworld 4-wheel, cross-country driving
Equipped with Borg-Warner's NextTrac intelligent 4-wheel-drive electronic control system, CS95 has strong cross-country and continuous relief capability. It distributes front and back torque according to road conditions, produces more efficient acceleration performance, and offers more fun during extreme cross-country driving.
Intelligence - Topworld application of autonomous intelligent driving technology
As a founding unit of USA Intelligence Alliance, Changan has reached the international level in terms of autonomous intelligent driving technology. CS95 employs the latest autonomous driving technologies including adaptive cruise control (ACC), lane departure warning, passenger air bag (PAB) warning, auxiliary braking, intelligent lane-change assist, and automatic parking assist. More efficient and superior CS95 intelligent security provides riders with comprehensive intelligent care for driving safety.
Strong relief capability and the high reliability of the Blue Core 2.0 TGDI with 6-speed automatic transmission and NexTrac make a perfect combination for dynamic performance. The launch of CS95 will usher the Chinese auto industry into an era of high-performance driving. This will enhance consumers' pride in and recognition of Chinese auto brands and Chinese technologies.
