BEIJING, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --, one of China's leading B2B search platforms with more than 30 B2B industry websites to its name, evaluates three popular kinds of 2.0T automobiles.

Shanghai Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0TSI

Shanghai Volkswagen Tiguan's length and width are respectively 4457mm, 1809mm and 1685mm, and compared to the import Volkswagen Tiguan, has an increased wheelbase length of 80mm, which is longer to enhance the performance of the rear space to meet domestic demand for consumer vehicles. In appearance, the domestic Tiguan will use Volkswagen's latest dual-spoke type of network design.

Tiguan will provide the initial versions of 1.8TSI and 2.0TSI, while the former will be the main sales model. It is regrettable that, due to already-installed components in the domestic MAGOTAN, the six-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox will not appear in the Tiguan. It will be replaced by the relatively traditional six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.

    Chery Ruiqi G5
    List price:   142.8-179.8 thousand yuan
    Advantages:   Power, suspension and other hardware configurations should
                  be affirmed
    Disadvantage: The price has declined, but the automatic models price is
                  still not cheap

The appearance of G5's proportion displays co-ordination, with flowing lines, temperament and poise, in line with an Asian aesthetic, but also in line with the brand's business Ruiqi positioning. Its 2.7-meter wheelbase makes room for both business and sports performance.

In the dynamic aspect, a self-developed Chery 2.0T engine can be said to Ruiqi G5, one of the core selling points. This engine uses a low-pressurized, low-turbo lag of the adjustment direction, 125 hp/5500rpm maximum power and peak torque of 235Nm/1900rpm. Although it is not eye-catching, it can serve well for everyday driving power demands. Furthermore, the engine's 6-speed manual transmission gear ratio is tight-knit, which is suitable for high-speed cruising.

In its current configuration, the G5 comes standard with 4 airbags, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, automatic headlights and other equipment.

    FAW-Volkswagen Magotan 2.0T
    List price:   251.8 thousand yuan or 263.8 thousand yuan
    Advantage:    2.0TSI + DSG, configuration rich
    Disadvantage: The rear space for performance, comfort and general

As a model already on the market for a long time, MAGOTAN's 2.0TSI can be regarded as the best performing sports cars among domestic B-class models.

This model belongs to the EA888 series and has a 2.0T engine with up to 200 horsepower, can reach 1800-5000rpm and provide a continuous 280Nm of peak torque. At the same time, the 6-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox can be good match for the TSI engine characteristics, allowing it to shift smoothly, generate quick response and provide good fuel economy. According to frbiz's data, the performance of the DSG gearbox is faster by a full second than the old model's 6-speed Tiptronic gearbox, accelerating from 0-100km/h in 8.3 seconds.

If power needs are less, then consumers could consider MAGOTAN's 1.8TSI model. With 160 hp / 5000-6200rpm maximum power and maximum torque of 250Nm/1500-4200rpm, it can bring superior engine power performance, matching the DSG gearbox ( ), which saves more fuel than the 2.0TSI model, all for a cheaper price.

MAGOTAN's 2.0TSI vehicle is also relatively large for its class, is comfortable and has luxury features like a smart key system and electric rear window shade configuration screens, among others. The 2.0TSIDSG deluxe edition also features a unique 30G hard drive navigation entertainment system. In the comfort area, its 2709mm wheelbase ensures easy performance.
