Changan Auto’s best-selling CS35 Plus once again proves its clout on its return to this year’s Manila International Auto Show. From April 13-16, catch the full story of the CS35 Plus’ remarkable 100,000-kilometer endurance test and check out the original unit used for the run at its very own 100,000-km Zone at the Changan Pavilion’s “Beyond the Vision” exhibit.
“We put up this exhibit to present to the public a ‘body of proof’ to the power and durability of the CS35 Plus,” said CMPI President and CEO Maria Fe Perez-Agudo.
The endurance run saw the then-brand new and newly-arrived CS35 Plus driven for seven months through various road and weather conditions from North to South of the Philippines until it racked up a total mileage of 100,000 kilometers, equivalent to five years of usage. That’s approximately 20,000 km a year or 54 kilometers a day.
“It’s like driving non-stop from Laoag City to Zamboanga City 29 and a half times,” added Ms. Agudo.
After the punishing drive and given the recommended PMS, the Changan CS35 Plus emerged in peak roadworthy condition. Major components, like the engine, suspension, air conditioning system and electrical system, did not require replacing. Only the consumable PMS parts were changed–brake pads, oil, tires, wiper blades, and drive belt.
“Proof of durability strengthens the Changan customer promise of lasting safety,” affirmed Ms. Agudo. “The CS35 Plus’ outstanding performance confirms Changan’s commitment to constantly improve its automotive technology so that the quality and performance of every model that it rolls out keeps on getting better each time. This is tangible proof that Changan takes care of you and your car.”
