Changan CS35 Plus Completes Problem-Free 100,000-Kilometer Test on Local Roads

Changan Philippines proved the mettle of its CS35 Plus subcompact SUV by completing a 122-day, 100,000-kilometer endurance test problem-free. The test was conducted on local roads on various terrains, and under different driving conditions.
The endurance challenge commenced in Laguna with a static and dynamic test on flat road with the engine running 24/7, averaging 40 kilometers a day for 10 days straight on different premium unleaded fuel.

This was followed by a day-long fuel consumption test from Calamba City to Baguio City, where the CS35 Plus took on a combined highway and city driving, as well as the requisite uphill climb to the Summer Capital. In this run, it averaged 14.6 km/L.

The test culminated with the CS35 Plus looping around Calamba City to Batangas City, averaging 820 kilometers a day.

After the competition of its endurance testing, the CS35 Plus remained unfaltered, with just its standard periodic maintenance service (PMS) done every 10,000 kilometers.

These new results bolster the accolades the Changan CS35 Plus has been receiving globally. It ranked the highest at the 2020 J.D. Power China Initial Quality Study (IQS), and the 2020 J.D. Power China Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study.

The engine of the CS35 Plus, the Changan 1.5T BlueCore also recently broke the Guinness World Record’s “Longest Live Video Broadcasting” challenge with the engine running non-stop, live and online, for more than 250 hours at a sustained speed of 5,500 rpm.

“We take pride in the rigorous testing that our vehicles undergo. The CS35 Plus already passed the standard rigorous testing that Changan’s global R&D team subjected it to. Our local endurance test run now verifies its excellent quality and fuel efficiency,” affirmed Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, President and CEO of Changan Motor Philippines, Inc. (CMPI), the official Philippine distributor of Changan vehicles.

Changan boasts of two “magic weapons” for quality assurance: the Changan Automobile Product Development System (CA-PDS) and the Changan Automobile Test and Verification System (CA-TVS). CA-PDS covers product life cycle and accurately guides the Changan product development team to meet customer demands.

CA-TVS ensures durability and performance by subjecting every new vehicle to more than 12,400 tests in 16 areas, including parts verification, system matching, and complete vehicle level, totaling 4,000,000 kilometers of punishing driving conditions. Product testing takes place at the sprawling Chongqing R&D base which houses the Changan Automobile Comprehensive Test Field, one of the most accurate of its kind in Asia.
