In these monsoon months, the New Changan CS35 Plus does more than keep you dry on the road. With SafeTech, the suite of above-class safety assist features that’s rare to find in vehicles of its segment, the New CS35 Plus makes for a safe and confident ride in any weather.
The Metro Manila Accident Reporting and Analysis System (MMARAS) reports that close-to half of their 26,000 documented road accidents in NCR in 2020 alone happened from June to October, traditionally the country’s wet season.
On wet roads, you’d want to reduce speed. The New CS35 Plus’ *Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go Function allows you to lock in your desired speed (30-150km/h). It also automatically slows down or adjusts speed once the built-in radar in the front grille under the bumper detects an approaching vehicle.
You also want to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. Well, the CS35 Plus’ Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)* system will assist you in braking to avoid any probable accident. Once activated, the AEB works together with the Front Collision Warning (FCW) system which displays a visual warning on the digital instrument panel and sets off an alarm to alert you to hit the brakes when it senses danger of rear-end collision with the vehicle in front.
In addition, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) detects skidding and automatically applies the brakes to individual wheels to counter loss of directional control and help maintain vehicle stability.
Excellent visibility is likewise crucial. The CS35 Plus’ Split LED Headlamp Design with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and Whale Tail Design LED Tail Lamps aren’t there just to make a strong style statement; they prevent collision by providing better visibility under a heavy downpour. In addition, the Headlamp Height Adjuster allows you to angle your lights in the best position for you to see better through the rain. While the Emergency Brake Lights* blink and flash rapidly when the vehicle detects abrupt braking, alerting the vehicle behind of your sudden stop.
The Around View Camera & Monitor* is powered by four high-definition cameras that project clear front, side, and rear images onto the large 10-inch touchscreen display, thus lessening the probability of bumping into nearby obstructions while parking or maneuvering in tight spaces. You can even choose which camera to activate at a given time. Complementing this features is the HD Driving Recorder,* a built-in dash cam which automatically records all the sides captured by the Around View cams before and after potential accidents occur. Videos are saved on the Micro SD card inside the module above the brake pedal, and can be quickly viewed on the 10” Touch Screen.
Finally, the New CS35 Plus boasts an Ultra High Strength Body. This means it is more durable and decay- and crash-resistant compared to its earlier incarnations. Moreover, its ground clearance of 180mm is at par with its class, allowing you to safely navigate gutter-deep floods.
With the New CS35 Plus’ SafeTech you are better equipped to deal with difficult road conditions and still be confidently in control of your every move on the road, allowing you to LEAD FREELY, LIVE FREELY, rain or shine!
