In automotive market, Japanese cars have always been renowned for their excellent fuel economy. Whether it's cars or SUVs, they all offer good fuel economy. In fact, thanks to constant improvement of German products, the fuel economy figures of many German cars can already catch up with Japanese cars.
After checking Bear's fuel consumption rating data, I found that many German products have very low fuel consumption. The best examples are following four SUVs. All models with automatic transmission, but all of them have very good fuel efficiency. , performance and most importantly body rigidity is better and car is overall safer.
SAIC Volkswagen Tuyue MSRP RMB 165,800-223,800 for car owners. Pickup price: 117,000-229,800 yuan. Total purchase price for car owners: RMB 133,300-257,900
Recommended configuration: 2019 280TSI Deluxe Edition National VI
Average fuel consumption: 8 l/100 km. Application rate of high strength steel: 78% (1500 MPa). As a successor to old Tiguan, Tuyue, built on MQB platform, reflects Tuon's "big brother" mindset into a design language that embraces a rough and tough line.
The car offers two engines: 1.4T and 2.0T, among which junior model is equipped with a 1.4T engine with a maximum power of 110kW and a maximum torque of 250Nm, matched with a 7-speed double-clutch gearbox. Although power isn't as strong as 2.0T, official 0-100k time is 9.1 seconds, and average fuel consumption per 100km as measured by car owners is 8 liters (the average fuel consumption of Japanese compact SUVs is generally over 8 liters). ), which is a good indicator. And this power supply system has been tested by market for many years and is relatively reliable.
In addition, Tuyue is equipped with 6 airbags, third generation WOKS protective head restraint and other equipment, and design standards can comply with 2018 version of C-NCAP collision rules. Adhering to Volkswagen's consistent strict style, high-strength one-piece body structure, roof frame, center tunnel, door sill, doors and other areas, as well as bumper brackets are made from military-grade thermoformed ultra-high strength materials. with a yield strength of more than 1500 MPa and high-strength steel materials. The application rate has reached 78%, which can effectively restrain collision deformation of body and provide comprehensive and reliable protection.
FAW-Volkswagen Jetta Jetta VS5
MSP: RMB 84,800-112,800. The price of car received by owner of car: 82,000-110,200 yuan. Full payment for car by owner: 94,500-127,600 yuan
Recommended Configuration: 2019 280TSI Automatic Pleasure Type
Average fuel consumption: 8.5 l/100 km. Application rate of high strength steel: 66% (1250 MPa). Now Jetta is a sub-brand of FAW-Volkswagen and, of course, does not differ from Volkswagen in key components. In particular, Jetta VS5 is developed on Volkswagen MQB platform, and it is also cheapest model on MQB platform.
The length is 4419/1841/1616mm, and wheelbase is up to 2630mm, giving users enough room to ride and store things. On chassis all four wheels independent suspension, pure German texture, price is rarely so close to people. The power system uses a Volkswagen EA211 1.4T engine, which is economical and powerful. There are two types of transmissions: Volkswagen's five-speed MQ250 manual transmission and the Aisin third-generation AQ250 six-speed automatic manual transmission. Known for its reliability and durability, it will be easier to drive.
At same time, German quality is good quality recognized by Chinese. The Jetta VS5 uses German Volkswagen's superior manufacturing process. The body is covered with high-strength steel with a coefficient of up to 66%, which can withstand a maximum pressure of 1250 MPa. There are 17 locations in total, such as sills, front and rear stringers, front and rear cross members, and center aisle. All parts are made of thermoformed steel for greater safety. It is worth noting that high-strength body can not only effectively ensure safety in event of a collision, but also give a sense of solidity to entire vehicle. When cornering at high speed or driving over bumps, driving performance of Jetta VS5 is better than that of Japanese products of same level, much more stable .
MSP: RMB 135,800-203,800. Naked car pick-up price for car owner: 108,600-194,000 yuan Full payment for car owner: 124,000-218,500 yuan
Recommended Configuration: 2019 Model 280TSI DSG AWD Aggressive Country VI
Average fuel consumption: 7.7 l/100 km
High-strength steel application rate: 88% (1000MPa) Tange is preferred SUV model of FAW-Volkswagen, and domestic extended version of foreign T-ROC is positioned as a compact SUV. first choice for this segment of Blockbuster market.
Tange, based on MQB-A1 platform, retains design elements of foreign version and T-ROCSTAR concept car in appearance. The real car is larger than photo, and actual driving space is qualified. In terms of power, Tange offers three specifications of high/low power 1.2t and 1.4t. Here we recommend buying an all-wheel drive model with a powerful 1.4t engine coupled with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission . gears are fast, smooth and responsive, nothing to say, better understands intentions of driver, and fuel economy is guaranteed.
The Tange body uses ultra-high-strength hot-formed sheet steel technology. In addition to higher strength, hot formed steel adds no extra weight to body and can increase body strength by up to 30%. Tange uses this The proportion of material reaches 28.7%, and high-strength steel plate reaches 88%. This high pressure sheet steel material covers key areas such as Tange A-pillar and B-pillar, floor center channel, door sills, front legs and rear seat beams. Tange uses this kind of hot-formed steel with a yield strength of more than 1000MPa, which can effectively protect interior deformation resistance and ensure safety of passengers.
SAIC Skoda Karoq
MSP: RMB 139,900-RMB 177,400. Price of a car issued by owner of car: 114,200-188,000 yuan. Full payment for car owner: RMB 130,200-211,800
Recommended configuration: TSI280 Zhixing Ultimate National VI 2019
Average fuel consumption: 7.6 l/100 km
High-strength steel application rate: 78% (1500 MPa). The "Luo" in name Ke Luoke comes from Chapter 39 of Lao Tzu. "I don't want to be mediocre like jade, Luo Luo is like a stone." Luo Luo: The stone looks harsh. It is described as hard as a rock. This shows that Skoda has high hopes for it.
As a brother to Kodiak, Karoq basically follows Kodiak's style and can even be seen as a smaller version of it. But in fact, its size is larger than that of Tange, and it is on par with Tiguan. As for power section, Karoq is equipped with EA211 1.2T and 1.4T engines, and whole system is matched with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Take best-selling 1.4T model for example, its power and torque are superior to 1.8L Honda engine, and fuel consumption is lower, which has obvious advantages.
Karoq utilizes a high strength body structure and uses 100% hot formed steel in key body parts such as A and B pillars, making up to 25% steel in body. vehicle. The strength of thermoformed steel plate reaches 1500 MPa, which is equivalent to weight of two adult elephants in an area size of a 1 yuan coin, and even ordinary bullets cannot penetrate it. In a nutshell, on Karoq, total proportion of high-strength steel and above is as much as 78%, which allows you to maximize protection of integrity of cabin in event of a collision.
