The new Changan A800 launches

Changan's new A800 MPV was launched in Chongqing, China on July 31st.  With thousands of fans in attendance, twenty A800 models were showcased.

Changan's design team in Turin, Italy developed A800's stylish, streamlined appearance with a focus on practicability.

A800 is 4810 mm long, 1795 mm wide, and 1750 mm high, with a 2760 wheelbase. These dimensions offer a lot of interior space in this 7-seater.  A 2+2+3 layout makes it easy to access the rear row.  A flexible baggage compartment accommodates a 29-inch suitcase.  Thirty-three varied storage compartments efficiently utilize cargo space.

Powered by a 1.5L turbocharged engine, A800 is equipped with a Honeywell turbocharger and a smoothly shifting 6-speed manual Changan gearbox.  The responsive powertrain quickly engages at the behest of the accelerator.  A800's chassis was developed at Changan's R&D Center in Detroit.  It's constructed with a McPherson front independent suspension and torsion beam rear suspension.  Expert tuning gives the A800's chassis the advantages of high strength and bearing capacity, as well as expanded interior space for sedan-like comfort.

A800 really impresses with its eco-friendly interior and intelligent features.  An intelligent active filtration system and an oxygen nano photocatalyst ecosystem create an environmentally friendly passenger cabin that's safe for pregnant women and children.

A800 is equipped with Changan's In Call 3.1 interconnection system which offers excellent performance in various on-board technologies such as intelligent voice recognition, intelligent remote inquiry and control, and WiFi.  This MPV is also equipped with several safety features including Bosch's ninth generation electronic stability program (ESP), anti-lock brakes (ABS), electric brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control, active yaw control, and hill-start assist.  These features ensure stable vehicle behavior in the event of emergency braking and/or rapid steering.

In June, more than 10,000 orders were placed for A800 in China, and more than 1,000 vehicles were sold.  Among MPVs, A800 will certainly set new standards in vehicle intelligence, safety, and performance.
