THIS is hot news, ladies and gentlemen, because the Jaecoo brand has arrived in Malaysia. In fact, two units of the Jaecoo J7 AWD are now in the country for road testing and standardization.
For those who are not aware, Jaecoo is one of the brands under the Chery umbrella, like Omoda. We also made a brief report and introduction about Jaecoo while in China a few months ago.
Jaecoo Malaysia is currently actively conducting exclusive previews for authorized distributors and potential investors ahead of the showroom opening.
It will be introduced to the Malaysian market next year. In addition, the official Facebook page of Jaecoo Malaysia has also been established, so you can visit it for any information and updates from the brand.
The official website is expected to be completed by January 2024. In the meantime, you can obtain further information on Jaecoo’s global website.
The Jaecoo J7 is a five-seater C-segment model, with a length of 4,500mm. It will be in the same segment as models such as the Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V.
Unlike the units we saw in Wuhu, China, which were front-wheel-drive models, the units that have arrived in Malaysia are both AWD models.
There are no engine details yet, but according to Jaecoo’s official website, the J7 AWD model is powered by a 1.6-liter turbo engine with 194hp and 290Nm of torque, and power is transmitted to all wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The 0-100km/h performance is in 8 seconds, while the fuel efficiency is about 7.48L/100km. Other features of the Jaecoo J7 include LED headlights, a 14.8-inch vertical infotainment screen, a panoramic sunroof, Sony audio system, 10 airbags, and ADAS Level 2.5+ functions.
What is your opinion on the Jaecoo J7 and this brand in general? Excited for its launch?
Sentiasa berdoa agar ICE dan transmisi manual akan kekal relevan dan takkan pupus. Lebih mementingkan keseimbangan dari kuasa semata.
