Driven To Challenge: Meet The 2024 Changan X7 Plus 7-Seater SUV

As one of the Top 4 automotive brands in China, Changan Auto is one of the pioneers in the Chinese domestic auto industry. Its dedication to research and product development makes Changan one of the most formidable automotive brands to set foot on the global stage, highlighted by its in-car Smart Mobility technology and the introduction of Electric Vehicles (EV).

The name, “Chang-an,” stands for “lasting safety” in its traditional Chinese form. In line with this, the brand is proud to offer the most comprehensive product line-up that is both competitive in pricing and exceptional in driving performance and in-car technology and safety systems.

Changan Auto’s flagship model is the Changan X7 Plus SUV. This 7-seater SUV is the brand’s entry into the large SUV category. It has a striking, modernistic design and incredible functionality, making it the best choice for any kind of journey. Under the hood, the X7 Plus is built with a Bluecore 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and runs on a 7-speed wet dual-clutch transmission with Triptonic. This allows for an output of 185 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque at its maximum best.

The Changan X7 Plus features a dynamic, jewel-like front grille pattern that represents movement and symphony, a play on elegance and confidence that is designed to mimic fluidity. This is proportionate to the narrow multi-tier LED headlamp set-up that is a signature of Changan, supported by the matrix LED daytime running lights. Its structured frame is softened by graceful curves that form a stylish silhouette from front to rear. To break the monotony of the single-tone colorway, it features sporty red accents, a shark-fin antenna, chrome-plated ornamental exhaust tip, while sitting atop 19-inch air turbine alloy wheels.

More than luxury, the Changan X7 Plus is designed to be a functional partner. The spacious interior cabin is finished in a premium ebony black, with a multi-tier dashboard that features impressions of piano black, brushed metal, and plush padding. For comfort, the front passengers have manual heating and cooling with 6-way power adjustment for the driver. Second and third row seats offer generous legroom and flat flooring, while the cargo hold boasts of generous space that can further be expanded when both rows are folded down flat.

Changan Auto is renowned for its technology and the Changan X7 Plus ticks all the boxes for a smart and intelligent driving experience. Digital is the only way to go, with most of the vehicle settings integrated into the 12.3-inch high-definition HMI touch screen monitor. The system is powered by CarAuto and comes with hands-free calling, navigation, and more importantly, phone mirroring for both Apple iOS and Android devices. Select system controls can also be manipulated, such as Custom Car Mode Selection, Car Lights Configuration, Car Alerts, Air-Conditioning, Driver Support, and Vehicle Diagnostics.

Safety is a premium and the best features are integrated into the Changan X7 Plus. Apart from the basics, like a built-in digital video recorder, reverse camera, and parking sensors, it also has a 360 Panocam with 4 wide-angle cameras for a 360-degree view of the vehicle in real time, along with advanced TPMS and parking sensors, and vehicle stability controls. The Advanced Driver Assist System includes on-road support, like Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution.

The Changan X7 Plus is priced at P1,399,000 and is available at Changan Auto dealerships nationwide. Visit the official Changan Auto Philippines Facebook page to know more.
