Hello, everyone , I'm puff


Now speaking of Wuling , Many people's first impression may no longer be glory and Hongguang , But Hongguang miniEV. But Wuling, which swept the market with cars , Recently, another new car came out , It's even bigger than GL8 Also big ! It is the second generation Wuling journey —— Wuling's only nine seater car . In the publicity, it is aimed at the demand for three children , It's a family oriented MPV, It is also a commercial sharp tool for cost recovery ?

Is the journey really suitable for family ?



The second generation Wuling journey is based on Wuling Hongguang Plus make , It looks like a longer Wuling Hongguang Plus. Its size is 5150*1840*1895, The wheelbase is 3180mm, Compared with GL8 Longer . The width of the journey 、 Track width and Hongguang Plus Agreement , Used from Hongguang Plus The shape of the square box is special in the long head van , It also contributes to the use of space .


The journey of high configuration uses relatively simple aluminum alloy rims and hidden B Column design , This makes it really look more faceted . However , There is a big difference in details between the low configuration version and the high configuration version of the journey —— This is Wuling's conventional strategy . Compared with the high-profile version above , This journey comfort looks more like a tool car . Steel rim 、 Spray paint B column —— All for practicality and cheapness , It doesn't seem to give anyone any “ business ” or “ comfortable ” First impression of .

Interior design , Hongguang is also used in the journey Plus The design of the , The straight lines bring some square box style . Interior materials 、 Color matching 、 Key details include the equipment of the central control screen and Hongguang Plus similar , The gap between high and low matching is very obvious . Compared with high configuration and low configuration , At first glance, it looks like two cars .

According to Wuling's official propaganda , Wuling journey will also be equipped with two-color body options , This will probably make it the first two-color body within 100000 MPV. It has always been a two-color body configured as a luxury model , From the beginning of the journey, he was demoted to less than 100000 , There may be some unexpected effects .

Journey as nine MPV, With competitive size , With newer and more beautiful designs , Directly to Ruifeng M3L、 Lingzhi is popular M5L etc. “ Longevity lapi ” Models constitute a certain competition .

If the journey is used as a ride MPV Words of view , In terms of body length , The journey can even follow GL8 Fight for supremacy

Wuling journey is outstanding in visual design , But how different it is from its rivals ? Its multiplicative version , Whether you are competent in business 、 Comfort needs in home environment ? This needs to start with its suspension structure . 


household MPV What is the suspension structure of ?


Let's take the medium and large-scale from the domestic market first MPV The king of sales GL8 Speak up . People who have followed this market may know , The third generation GL8 Compared with the second generation, the most important thing is that the rear suspension has changed from torsion beam semi independent suspension to multi link independent suspension . But these two generations GL8 Although the suspension structure is different , They still have one thing in common in ensuring comfort , That is, the elastic element adopts coil spring .

What suspension structure does Wuling use on the journey ?


And this generation's journey uses the former McPherson , Suspension structure of rear leaf spring integral axle . As for the difference between them —— Coil springs have lower stiffness than leaf springs in light vehicles , Can better inhibit 、 Mitigate the impact —— More colloquially , It's softer , It can better transform large shocks into multiple small shocks . These small shocks , Is dissipated by the shock absorber .


therefore , For comfort , Most family cars use coil springs as elastic components in both . But leaf springs are not without advantages . Higher stiffness , Shorter travel , Lower cost , So that it can spend a little money on commercial loads , Do big things , Therefore, it is widely used in light and heavy trucks and light passengers .

Not just Wuling journey —— The popularity mentioned above M5L, The suspension structure of rear axle leaf spring is also adopted . And its main market-oriented , Freight or low-end passenger transport .

But does this mean that if the rear drive is not independent suspension, only leaf springs can be used , Can't you think more about comfort ? That's not true . Not to mention the hardliners of most rear integral axles SUV, Let's take a car with the closest price —— Chang'an Commercial Co., Ltd CX70 As an example .

Why not use coil springs on the journey ?

Pay attention to its rear differential 、 The rear axle of the cylinder is very hard at first sight —— This is a complete rear drive integral axle model . The reason why it can be fitted with a coil spring , It is mainly due to the connecting rod structure .

Notice the longitudinal control arm directly below the spring ? It undertakes the longitudinal control task that the coil spring cannot do . In the horizontal aspect , This suspension also has linkage control .

CX70 It has been discontinued for a long time , Its guidance price before shutdown is 7.69 ten thousand —— Just like Gao peihongguang Plus near . This proves that the cost of non independent suspension of multi connecting rod coil spring is not high —— In fact, it's much lower than the independent suspension . CX70 It's a car born out of the van platform SUV, It does not need to consider too much bearing capacity , But mainly consider ride comfort .

obviously , Wuling journey with leaf spring , The reason for not using coil springs may not be due to cost or technology to a large extent , But the requirement of bearing capacity —— Wuling designed it , It still mainly considers the high-intensity freight demand of the main sales models . Its chassis , Maybe it can't make it a qualified family car MPV—— Unless you have nine just needed , You can only trade comfort for the number of seats .

 picture

But even if you don't care about the chassis structure , There are not so high requirements for ride comfort , There is still a little dissuasion on the journey —— Only the luxury model has a car like configuration , But these configurations are near 10 The price of 10000 yuan is a little pathetic .

What's more? , The non operating version of Wuling journey is not even equipped ESP And traction control —— This is a rear drive car that may be used for household purposes ! in addition , stay 2021 year , A family car has no automatic gear configuration , It's a little unreasonable .

XXL The no. “ National Chariot ”, Who will sell it to ?



As puff said above , Although Wuling journey as a family car has a variety of inappropriate places , But if you look at the whole market , Wuling journey in this position , Still “ Like most ” A nine seater family car . In the sinking market of third and fourth tier cities and counties , Perhaps Wuling journey can meet the travel characteristics of three child families , It can still make many people pay for it .
 picture

in addition , After all, journey is still an excellent tool car —— Many potential users of the journey , And never because of it “ Family car ” Publicity of , And choose to ignore its huge commercial potential . Wuling's excellent reputation 、 Quality and supply chain , Let the journey once again become a strong force in the medium and large van Market . Considering that the journey has also launched a closed truck version , It's better than Hongguang Plus A larger rear compartment , The improvement of freight capacity is not small .

Summary



Although in terms of vision, Wuling journey is more high-end , In terms of configuration, high configuration models also bring a better business and home experience , But in terms of suspension structure , The journey is still biased towards the positioning of commercial vehicles . But analyze it carefully , Wuling journey has met the blank of specific market demand in household , In terms of business, it has excellent reputation and product strength , The launch of the journey , It undoubtedly reflects Wuling's keen sense of market , And excellent marketing strategy . It's just , It failed to achieve the goal of nine people as comfortable as a car within 100000 .
