A bang-for-the-buck vehicle holds an enticing proposition for buyers as cars typically cost a fortune nowadays. Changan Motor Philippines, Inc.

The first notable feature found on the Changan CS55 Plus is its 6-speaker Pioneer Premium sound system. This promises to deliver precise and crisp sound quality and powerful bass. Together with the 12.3-inch infotainment system, it offers enhanced onboard entertainment regardless of where your trip takes you.

Likewise made available on the CS55 Plus is the Automatic Emergency Brake (AEB) system. It assesses the likeliness of colliding with a vehicle up ahead and applies brakes when necessary. Working in tandem with AEB is Forward Collision Warning (FCW). The FCW detects slow-moving vehicles coming from the front and will alert the driver with audio and visual cues. This system allows the driver ample time to avoid a collision.

Next up is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). With this next-gen technology, drivers can let the CS55 accelerate and brake by itself, depending on the traffic ahead. The ACC is also paired with the Stop and Go feature. This allows the CS55 Plus to continue using the ACC even in bumper-to-bumper traffic situations.

Last but not least, the Changan CS55 Plus comes with a panoramic camera with an HD driving recorder system. This provides the driver with a 540-degree virtual view of the vehicle’s surroundings. It can even give a view of the vehicle’s underside. When this feature detects sudden braking or collision, the system automatically saves 30 seconds of video – 15 seconds before and 15 seconds after the incident.
