Introducing Dongfeng Shine Max
It has been more than 15 years since the Chinese entered the Iranian car market, and today we see their colorful presence among domestic cars. This colorful presence may have entered the competition with Korean and Japanese cars. As we have seen, many large companies have become importers or assemblers of Chinese products, so Iran Khodro Automobile Company has not left behind and has established interactions with several Chinese companies. One of these companies is Dongfeng. This factory, in cooperation with Iran Khodro, is going to release its new product to the Iranian market. Dongfeng Shine Max is the car under review today on the IR Luxury Cars website. This relatively large Chinese sedan will hit the streets of Iran in two hybrid and gasoline versions.
Technical specifications of Dongfeng Shine Max
In the gasoline version, Dongfeng company has used a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. Maybe we are used to seeing all the Chinese with a 1.5 liter engine...! This engine is equipped with a direct fuel injection system or GDI. 190 horsepower and 300 newton meters of torque are quite satisfactory for an average family sedan. The gearbox of this relatively luxurious Dongfeng sedan is a seven-speed double-clutch type. Among the positive points of this sedan, we can mention the fuel consumption of 2.6 liters per hundred kilometers, which seems very appropriate for the power of the engine. Now we come to the second version of this Chinese sedan, where an electric motor can be seen in addition to the 1.5 liter turbocharger engine. This hybrid version produces a total of 174 horsepower, which is less than the gasoline model, but on the other hand, it compensates for its lack of power with a fuel consumption of 3.4 liters per hundred kilometers.
Amenities and options
This Chinese sedan in the full option version with equipment such as front and rear LED lights, panoramic roof, interior lighting, autonomous driving assistant system (ADAS) with autopark, electric seats with the ability to adjust the lumbar support and memory along with the driver's seat cooler and massager and A 360-degree camera will also be available in the market. Shine Max is also equipped with level 2.5 autonomous driving system. This way, in traffic, this car has the ability to detect an increase or decrease in speed without the intervention of the driver.
Dongfeng Shine Max body design
Nowadays, the design of Chinese cars has become almost repetitive, for example, the rear lights are connected...! Shine Max has not benefited from this design either. But in the front part of this sedan, you can find traces of Japanese sedan design. The large front window and the rectangular lights drawn into the fender are among the important points observed in the beauty of this car. In the interior, the feeling of a completely luxurious sedan is induced to the passengers. The large and angled monitor screen in the middle of the dashboard and the silver line drawn from below it to the middle of the right door have given the cabin a beautiful effect.
The price of Dongfeng Shine Max
The price of this Chinese sedan in the world market is about 18 thousand dollars, which can be estimated between 1.5 and 1.6 billion tomans according to the conditions of car import. There are used Japanese and Korean cars in this price range. Also, Shine Max's compatriot and competitor, Chery Arizzo 6, is also in the same price range.
