With Wuling Alvez Libas Mountain and City Routes

DAPURPACU – The emergence of Wuling Alvez adds to the line of competition in the compact SUV segment in Indonesia. Of the 3 variants offered (SE, CE and EX), the Wuling Alvez EX variant is the highest and best-selling variant. It is equipped with the latest ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) safety features. The Wuling Alvez EX costs IDR 295 million.

Friday May 26 2023, Dapurpacu.id was given the opportunity to try out the latest Compact SUV in the All At Once Driving Experience activity, Dapurpacu.id along with 20 other media partners were taken to explore the Plato route on the Yogyakarta-Wonosobo-Semarang route. A total of 5 units of Wuling Alvez ‘Style and Innovation in One SUV’ type EX were involved in the trip which was held for 2 days and 1 night.

The activity started from Yogyakarta International Airport, Kulon Progo, media partners started their first trip to the first meeting point of the Truntum Gasblock Magelang around Borobudur for lunch. Through a fairly busy national road, Wuling Alvez is still quite easy to drive to maneuver in the midst of busy Jogjakarta traffic.

Arriving at the first meeting point at Truntum Gasblock, media partners had the opportunity to capture the moment with Alvez with a view of the beautiful hills covered with rice fields that were just starting to rise. On this route, the slam and suspension of the Wuling Alvez are proven to be quite good, although there are still potholes and uneven roads.

The Wuling Alvez cabin provides a modern car interior, so that the comfort of the passengers is felt when entering the Wuling Alvez EX. Chairs made of black synthetic leather combined with gray suede material make the Alvez interior look cool without sacrificing comfort when you sit on it.

Alvez steering wheel wrapped in leather with a round design with a flat base, gives a modern impression that is comfortable to operate, so it is very capable of maneuvering or changing direction. The modern design is not only on the steering wheel, but also on the gear shift knob which is comfortable to hold when shifting transmissions.

One of the advantages of the cabin of the Wuling Alvez EX is the cabin that feels long, overall, the cabin of Alvez is quite spacious with a fairly large luggage capacity, which is 322 liters. Another excellent feature is that Alvez already has internet of vehicle (IOV) technology.

Support for a 10-inch head unit complete with smartphone mirroring features for online music, navigation and short message applications, also equipped with four speakers and voice commands Wuling Indonesian Command (WIND), for entertainment matters This entertainment device from Alvez is fairly good and complete.

The journey continued to the second Dhayo Coffee meeting point in the Wonosobo area, media colleagues enjoyed a coffee break and a challenge to make mocktails. During the trip to Wonosobo, media partners were presented with winding and potholed track roads, and the kickback from Alvez still felt good and comfortable. With the electric sunroof and the use of premium materials in the cabin, this trip is even more comfortable with Alvez.

It’s time for Dapurpacu.id to take over Alvez’s driving center from Wonosobo to Semarang with a travel time of more than 2 hours. Towards evening the drizzling rain began to fall to greet us in the town of Tobacco – Temanggung, the main lights started to turn on, the view from the wheelhouse was still clear and wide to see the distance ahead.

LED DRL (Daytime Running Light) and adjustable LED are used as headlamps which are paired with LED Foglamps to increase the power of lighting for drivers crossing the Wonosobo – Temanggung mountain trails to bulldoze the fog around Sumbing Mountain. Powerful acceleration can be produced by Alvez when surfing on a flat road surface.

This car with a 1485 cc, 4 cylinder, DVVT, DOHC petrol engine has powerful acceleration on a flat road surface, with a stop & go scenario, Alvez is quite good through traffic jams typical of urban streets. The Alvez engine has a maximum power of 105 HP at 5,800 rpm with a torque of 143 Nm at 4,000 – 4,600 rpm. Power from the front wheel drive/Front Wheel Drive (FWD) car is channeled through a very smooth CVT transmission.

When facing the road uphill, the position of the lever is D, Alvez’s work feels very hard, so that kitchenpacu.id has to move the transmission lever to position S which can produce more spontaneous acceleration. Likewise, when this car needs acceleration to maneuver or overtake the vehicle on the left, even though it has a 1,500 cc 4-cylinder engine with CVT transmission, Wuling Alvez does not have a driving mode. Fortunately, it is helped by -/+ and S modes in the transmission lever position.

Arriving in Bandungan – Semarang, media colleagues continued having dinner together before closing the first day’s journey to rest at the Aruss Hotel, Semarang. On the second day, a city tour trip with the aim of Layang Layang Resto is only less than 10KM. Have lunch together before continuing the journey back to Jakarta via Jenderal Ahmad Yani International Airport which is the final point of the third batch of All at Once Driving Experience to return to the capital city of Jakarta.
