At the beginning of 2010, the Buick Yinglang XT was officially launched, and the “Performance Small Steel Cannon” label on the top of his head was not the same. Even the sedan version of Yinglang GT did not choose to follow the waves. It was also determined to determine his belief in driving and control. Unfortunately, I did not drive the Yinglang XT or GT that year. Time cannot be flowed backwards, and some regrets are destined to be unable to make up. After losing a 1.6T four -cylinder engine and Super Boost, the super booster, the Yinglang in front of me seemed to lose the “soul” of the past, which is endless. However, the movement will always flash inadvertently. After years of polishing, although Yinglang is no longer the irritable young guy, its heart is still the teenager here.
Appearance: round and full, simple and low -key
In terms of appearance, the new Yinglang still continues the classic design language of the Buick family. The overall shape is round and full, without any obvious edges and corners. As a modified model of the year, 2021 Yinglang canceled the chrome decorative strip of previously surrounded, and the exquisiteness of the front face decreased, which seemed to be more simple and unreasonable.
The rear design is simple and low -key, and the curve on both sides of the taillight transitions to the upper end of the bumper, and the visual effect is quite heavy. The new car length, width, height is 4609mm/1798mm/1486mm, and the wheelbase is 2640mm. The size performance is quite satisfactory, and there is no advantage compared to the competition at the same level.
Although the overall shape is simple and unreasonable, Yinglang’s performance in appearance details is quite good. For example, the classic “flying wing” mid -net design of the Buick family, exquisite personality and recognizable. The chrome trim bars on both sides of the China Net are connected to the headlights, and the “C” LED daytime running lights are simple and stylish. In addition, the distant light of the headlights also uses LED light sources.
Double five -spoke wheels are elegant and elegant, matching the Maggis WALTZ MS1 tires, which are mainly mute and comfortable, and the size is 205/55 R16.
Interior: Classic Handle Center Console Design
The 2021 Yinglang interior still continues the classic embracing structure design of the Buick family. Although the center console is limited by cost control, a large area of hard plastic material is used, but fortunately the workmanship is solid, and the seams and corner areas areas are still solid. The handling is very good. In addition to the black decorative board, a silver decorative bar that runs through the center console is also added to the center of the center, which is rich in visual effects and also creates a certain sense of motion.
The steering wheel is not equipped with multi -function keys, but whether it is used in the plastic material or bad grip, it seriously reduces the driver’s favorability and properly bad reviews. Although it is not recommended to install the steering wheel sleeve because of safety reasons, the performance of the original steering wheel of Yinglang is indeed a disaster, which is quite tangled.
Since the test drive was not activated, it was not experienced and tested. According to the official configuration information, the new car is equipped with a 7 -inch central control screen, the built -in Econnnect intelligent interconnection system, with various applications such as Gaode Navigation and Cool Music, and supports Apple CarPlay and Baidu Carlife mobile phone interconnection. In addition, the iconic Anji Star function is also very practical. From the perspective of the Buick models tested in the past, the interactive logic and fluency of the Econnnect intelligent interconnection system do not need to worry. With the functions of the Internet and OTA online upgrade, it can fully meet daily use.
The 2021 Yinglang system is equipped with manual air conditioners, with rear outlet air outlets and PM2.5 filtering devices in the car. The configuration performance is quite satisfactory. The air -conditioning control panel is a simple physical structure. The size of the keys and knobs is very large. The damping is moderate. Although it is not exquisite, it is better than simple and practical.
In terms of comfort, Yinglang’s performance is slightly shabby. The comfort of the seat is acceptable. The front seats are manually adjusted, and as for ventilation, heating, and seat memory function, there is no surprise. The electric sunroof can bring transparent vision, and the ventilation ventilation function also has certain practicality. The four windows are allocated by electric, but they do not support one -click lifting. Even the driver’s position does not have special care. It is really equal.
Power: Light hybrid system blessing
The 2021 Biekyinglang made a comprehensive adjustment of the power system, not only returning to the 1.5L four -cylinder engine, but also a 48V light hybrid system for the 1.3T engine. The test drive model is 1.3T+48V light -mixed version, of which the maximum power of the 1.3T engine is 120kW and the peak torque is 230N · m. The book data is quite good. The transmission system matches the 6 -speed automatic transmission. The light hybrid system consists of 48V IBSG, consisting of a power generation machine, lithium iron phosphate battery, power management module, and hybrid control unit. It mainly plays a role in auxiliary engines. The sense of existence of the system itself is not strong.
Although according to the parameters, this 1.3T engine can reach the platform period of peak torque at 1800rpm, from the actual driving experience, the engine will only usher in an obvious outbreak at about 2500rpm. Before the speed climbing to 2500rpm, even if you step on the throttle, you will not get too much feedback. If you are alone, you will only shake the three -cylinder engine. When the engine speed has passed 2500rpm, the explosive power is still very strong, and the roar of the engine with “noise” with “surging” is really a bit of bloody taste.
Perhaps it is because the low twisting performance of this 1.3T engine is really poor. Therefore, as long as you step on the throttle a little deeper, the gearbox will immediately lower the gear to raise the engine speed to obtain a good power performance. When accelerated the acceleration of the accelerator, the gearbox will complete the lift movement around 5500rpm, and accurately match the engine that can output the maximum power speed of the engine. The response of the engine and gearbox to the throttle pedal is very positive, and it is limited by displacement. Although the power cannot be talked about, this performance is already satisfactory.
The steering wheel feels sinking and sporty, but the slightly strong rotation damping with a bad steering wheel holding the feel, which may not be friendly for the driver. The brake foot feel is generally good, and the brake release is relatively uniform and linear, which can give the driver strong confidence. The thickness of the chassis is full, and it is a typical Buick adjustment style.
According to the official introduction, IBSG motor (48V motor) equipped by Yinglang will only be involved in the work when the vehicle starts, idle speed, initial acceleration, taxi, and brake. During the daily driving process, the existence of this 48V light hybrid system is indeed very low. The 48V motor can contribute to the maximum 20N · m torque when participating in the power output, but the subjective feel is almost unacceptable. When the speed drops to less than 20km/h, the opportunity will stop work. At this time, IBSG motors will intervene to maintain the speed. When the system determines that the engine is going to park, the engine will be turned off in advance. The motor will not be disconnected when interventional, and the connection is very smooth, but the disadvantage is that the three -cylinder engine can feel the obvious jitter when the three -cylinder engine is restarted. Stop function.
Although Yinglang is no longer the “small steel cannon” in the past, its suspension adjustment is still the same sports style, solid and tight, and can bring a certain amount of control fun to the driver. As mentioned earlier, Yinglang’s steering wheel feels heavy, and the daily driving feels not light enough, but this is definitely a good thing for control. The steering wheel is accurate, the front of the car responds quickly, and the rear of the car is relatively safe. Even when driving fiercely, the body’s posture is still very good. I thought Yinglang had already returned to the family now, and would have smooth power output and comfortable chassis adjustment, but never thought it was so uneasy.
Space: Meet the needs of daily home use
The height of the experiencer is 185cm, and there is still a punch in the front row after sitting in the front row, which is quite satisfactory. In terms of front -row storage, the door panel storage tank is very large, and there is also a space division in the interior, which is highly practical. The door is designed for the back cover, which can put down a mobile phone steadily. There is a storage tank at the bottom of the center control table, but the volume is small, and the 12V power interface on the side also invades part of the space. The water cup rack is placed on the right side of the handbrake, which uses a penetrating design, but the interior is not equipped with a limiter. In addition to the glove box in front of the co -pilot, a storage tank with an umbrella is also designed at the bottom, which is very practical.
Keep the position of the front seat unchanged, the experiencer comes to the second row, and the head is also about a punch on the head after sitting. Essence Although the performance of the space is acceptable, the rear storage space is really stretched. Except for the door panel storage tank, there is only the hook on the top of the car.
Yinglang trunk tailgate can be turned on through the key or the switch at the bottom of the driver’s door. The independent switch is not designed on the tailgate, and the practicality is slightly insufficient. The internal space of the trunk is regular. Although the wheel arches on both sides have invaded some space, the overall impact is not great. The rear seats do not support it, and there is no excess space for storage below the trunk floor except for spare tires. In general, Yinglang’s trunk space is exactly what you see. Although it is not rich, it can basically meet the daily use.
Safety: Passive safety configuration is rich
In terms of security configuration, Yinglang’s performance is quite satisfactory. Although the active safety system is lacking, the passive safety configuration is rich, with front side airbags and tire pressure display functions. In addition, the rear parking radar, reversing image, and uphill auxiliary functions are basically capable of covering most of the usage scenarios. The radar can be displayed on the LCD screen in the dashboard. As the distance is far and near, the color of the prompt line will change, which is very intuitive. The reversing image screen is clear, and the corners are not serious. In addition, it is also equipped with auxiliary lines, and the practical performance is acceptable.
