Changan Alsvin musters 22kpl in fuel economy run

MANILA: Changan Motor Philippines, Inc. (CMPI) released the official results of the fuel economy run that was conducted with the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) last July 20 and 22.

The fuel economy run featured one of Changan’s vehicle offerings in the Philippines, the Alsvin 1.5L 5DCT. After 180.652 km of highway driving from Balagtas, Bulacan to Tarlac City, the Alsvin achieved a fuel mileage of 22.023kpl.

To ensure that the fuel economy run was done under realistic driving situations CMPI and AAP made sure that the car kept a speed of 60 to 85kph.

The Alsvin also tallied an above-average result of 9.369kpl during a city driving test run from Makati-EDSA to SLEX East Service Road and back with a GPS-tallied distance of 90.7 km. The test was done with speed appropriate to road traffic situations.

The Alsvin used for both test runs was also set with driving parameters for real-life driving conditions. It was filled up to the brim with a 95 RON gasoline. All OEM equipment were present and the tire pressures were kept at OEM specifications. The air-conditioning system was set on medium-cool setting, while the radio was either not used or set to low volume.

The Alsvin comes in 1.4L and 1.5L gasoline engine variants that ensure balance between reduced exhaust emission and efficient fuel consumption. The 1.4-liter engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission that delivers ideal speed and power, while the 1.5-liter engine is paired to a five-speed dual clutch transmission that provides the convenience of an automatic vehicle and the sportiness of a manual car.

Just like other Changan vehicles, the Alsvin 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.
