ChinaAsta carries the new logo of the Wuling brand, sold from September 16 for $ 11,000-15,500.
Launched at the Shanghai auto show, China, in April, Asta was present in showrooms in the domestic market. This is Wuling’s second new era model, since the MPV Victory from 2020. Asta is also the second car after Victory to carry Wuling’s new silver logo – its global brand identity.
Positioned in the small SUV segment, Asta has a length of 4,594 mm, a width of 1,820 mm, a height of 1,740 mm and a wheelbase of 2,750 mm. This size is quite strange compared to the current popular car structure. The 2,750 mm wheelbase is even longer than the Toyota Fortuner (2,745 mm) in the D segment. But the 4,594 mm length is shorter than the CR-V (4,623 mm) in the C segment. With this shaping, the car will has a shorter overhang (distance from the front axle to the front bumper and from the rear axle to the rear bumper) shorter than other cars on the market, ie the layout of the engine compartment must be neat. Theoretically, this way of shaping can bring spacious interior space.
Asta follows the design trend of Victory, with the goal of targeting young customers. The trapezoidal grille with a wing theme and boomerang LED headlights. The strip of lights at the rear of the car runs horizontally with the word “Wuling” in the middle.
Interior style is simple but modern with two tones. Flat bottom three-spoke steering wheel. 10.25-inch screen in the center console. Ample space with comfortable legroom in the rear seats. The car seats stand out with double stitches in the shape of a diamond. Interior lights 256 colors.
To keep the space quiet, Wuling uses tempered steel to manufacture the frame. In addition, the car glass has two layers. Asta has 6 airbags.
A special feature of Asta is the Ling OS Lingxi support system with smart connection technology. The system features real-time 3D scanning, image customization and saving as Ling’s valuable perks.
The system also includes 34 interactive scenes, a launch image, and 3 human-machine interaction features with 3D images. Users can also set special IDs, thereby sharing physical locations and exchanging information, and the system can provide a navigation feature to help users plan trips. long. By the end of this year, Ling OS will be available on all models of the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture.
The crossover is equipped with a 1.5-liter engine, turbo, capacity of 144 horsepower, combined with a CVT gearbox. The company says Asta accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.6 seconds.
