|All-New JAC S2|
Triesenburg Auto Corp. (TAC), the official distributor of JAC Passenger and Light Commercial Vehicle, came into the country in 2018 as the first Chinese Automaker hoping to make a difference and provide vehicles that will change the way people look at cars and forget what’s normal.
The objective was not to really get a big piece of the pie but to get a modest customer base and ensure 110% customer satisfaction. TAC is glad to say that they have so far successfully achieved that. Of the 6 vehicles in the product line-up, the JAC S2 became the hottest commodity as it provided specs and innovation at a price point that no one in the market can match.
Over the last 3 years, the community of satisfied and proud owners has grown and continues to grow as evidenced by the numerous testimonials existing owners agreed to give. Given this, JAC Motors Philippines felt the need to further improve their flagship vehicle and launch a REVAMPED, REFRESHED, and REVITALIZED JAC S2 that will surely TURN HEADS ON THE ROAD.
The New JAC S2 still sports the same 1.5L VVT Engine mated with either a CVT or Manual Transmission and puts out 111 horses and a torque of 146 N.m. One can also expect it to be more agile given the change in gear ratio from 4.056 to 6.65. The suspension still is a Mac-Pherson Independent for the front and Torsion Beam Semi-Independent at the rear and still has those disc brakes all around for the needed stopping power and safety.
The new JAC S2 will be rolling on 16s alloy rims still with a new design wrapped 205/55 Tires. The New JAC S2, will continue to have the advantages of the high technology safety features as an advantage over the competition namely: (1) Dual Airbags; (2) Driver and Passenger Seatbelt Alarms; (3) ISOFIX Ready; (4) Immobilizer; (5) ABS-EBD; (6) Electronic Stability Control; (7) Hydraulic Brake Assist; (8) Brake Override System; and (9) Hill-start Assist Control.
The new S2 will also provide the convenience of the cruise control system, rear parking sensor, and backup camera. As JAC has always done, aside from these features that already have been embraced by existing owners, JAC has listened to the feedback on what needs to be improved and has equipped the New S2 accordingly.
Aesthetically, the major change only is the face of the S2. It has been streamlined and combined the DRL with the HL for a sportier and more cohesive look. The trapezoidal grille remains a staple on it. The clamor from owners for it to be more competitive for its multi-media has also been heard and done. It now sports a 9-inch multi-media that is Android-Auto and Apple-Carplay equipped. Leather material on the seats and trimmings all around the interior has also been improved and accented with red stitching for that sportier look.
JAC S2’s official launch happened on May 23, 2021, at 6 PM through the Official Facebook Page of JAC Motors Philippines. https://www.facebook.com/jacphilippines. Myra Nodalo, Sales Director, presented the reveal of the vehicle, followed by first impressions from our media friends and existing S2 owners. The JAC S2 will continue to have the same price of P798k for the CVT Variant and P748k for the manual transmission as an introductory offer.
