Wuling Zhengcheng’s “second” van will accommodate nine – DRIVE

The length, width, height and wheelbase of the Zhengcheng van are 5150, 1840, 1895 and 3180 mm.

Brand Wuling has prepared the Zhengcheng minivan (Zhengcheng, “travel”) to enter the market next month. Formally, this can be called the second generation. But this is a controversial interpretation – the “first” Zhengcheng (2014-2018) was the original passenger car, and the “second” is just an elongated version of another car, the Wuling Hongguang Plus minivan, which went on sale in September 2019. It would be strange to name the long version of the Hongguan Plus Plus, so it was given a completely different designation.

The advantages of the new Zhengcheng: the choice of a salon for seven, eight or nine seats, the possibility of two-tone painting. There are 21 containers for small things. When the rear rows are folded, 4882 liters are released (even a cargo version with a partition behind the front seats will appear).

The Zhengcheng of the first generation had a classic layout, and the second did not change the principle. The donor, the Hongguan Plus, has McPherson struts in the front, and the rear suspension varies depending on the modification. There may be a semi-independent multi-link design with coil springs or a spring axle. Zhengcheng uses springs as a heavier one. In any case, structurally the new car is as close as possible to the Plus. And outwardly they are almost indistinguishable. The elongated van (+380 mm to the base, +430 mm to the length) is given by the rear side doors (sliding instead of hinged), rear fenders and glazing (compare the car under the heading with the blue van below).

Top left: First generation Wuling Zhengcheng. Length, width, height, base – 5090, 1780, 1925, 3250, motors 1.5 and 1.8 with five-speed “mechanics”. The rest of the photos are Hongguang Plus. Sizes – 4720, 1840, 1810, 2800 mm. The car uses a modular platform CN150, longitudinal internal combustion engine and rear-wheel drive.

Zhengcheng will be driven by a 1.5 turbo engine (147 hp, 250 N • m), which consumes an average of 7.6 l / 100 km. The Hongguan Plus has the same engine, but in the simplest versions there is a simpler aspirated 1.5 unit (99 hp, 140 N • m). In all variations of these fellows, the gearbox is the same – a six-speed “mechanics”. Wuling Hongguang Plus in the initial configuration costs from 58,800 yuan (666,037 rubles), and the “second” Wuling Zhengcheng – about 80,000 yuan (906,000 rubles). According to unofficial information, the past Zhengcheng may return to the catalog under the designation Wuling Zhengcheng Classic.
