Proving that it is the sedan designed to exceed expectations, the Alsvin, one of Changan’s powerhouse vehicle offerings in the Philippines, showcased promising fuel efficiency ratings in tests conducted by Changan Motor Philippines, Inc. (CMPI) and the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP).
In a fuel economy run held on July 20 and 22, 2021, the Alsvin 1.5L 5DCT (mid-variant) tallied a fuel efficiency result of approximately 22.023 km/L for highway driving at an average speed of 60 to 85 kph. The highway driving test traversed a route from Balagtas, Bulacan in NLEX Northbound part going to Tarlac City through SCTEX and back, covering a GPS-read distance of 180.652 kilometers.
The Alsvin also flaunted an above average result at 9.369 km/L during a city driving test run from Makati-EDSA to SLEX East Service Road and back with a GPS-read distance of 90.7 kilometers. The city driving test was conducted with speed appropriate to road traffic situations.
The Alsvin used in the fuel economy run was set with driving parameters for real-life driving conditions. The vehicle used for both the test runs was filled up to the brim with a 95 RON gasoline. All OEM equipment were present in the Alsvin, while tire pressures were left at OEM specifications. The air conditioning was at medium cool thermostat setting, and radio was either not used or set to low volume.
Behind the fuel economy results of the Alsvin are its powerful set of interior specs that work together for energy-saving mobility. The Alsvin comes in 1.4L and 1.5L gasoline engine variants that ensure balance between reduced exhaust emission and efficient fuel consumption, a 5-Speed Manual Transmission that provides ideal vehicle speed and power, and a 5-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission that brings the convenience of an automatic vehicle with the sportiness of a manual car.
Combining fuel efficiency with its brand promise of Lasting Safety, the Alsvin, alongside other Changan vehicles, is also equipped with innovative safety features such as Dual Front Airbags, Blind Spot and Reverse Camera, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Hill Hold Control, and Electronic Stability Program, to name a few.
