Leapfrog driving experience, test drive Starway Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition.

Fenghuang net automobile test driveWith the concept of "luxury and equal rights", the Star Road Eta Ursae Majoris has been favored by domestic consumers with a double premium purchasing power of "200,000-level price and 400,000-level value" since its listing in February this year, and this car has a good sales performance overseas.

With the "Flying Fish Super Chassis" technology released by Starway Eta Ursae Majoris, the driving quality of this car has been comparable to that of a more luxurious SUV. However, everyone who knows this model knows that if you want to have the flying fish super-chassis technology, you must buy a car with a higher price of four-wheel drive, but not everyone needs a four-wheel drive model, or not everyone has enough budget to buy a car with their favorite configuration.

In order to let more users experience better driving experience at more affordable prices, Xingtu automobile brand released the-Xingtu Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish version at this year’s Chengdu Auto Show, which decentralized the flying fish super-sensing chassis technology to the more affordable two-wheel drive version, and added Aisin 8AT gearbox to the four-wheel drive model. Starway Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition conference also became the only vehicle with CDC electromagnetic suspension system within 200,000.

First, the two-wheel drive is equipped with a flying fish super-sensing chassis to save money and be comfortable.

Xingtu Eta Ursae Majoris is the first model born from the scientific research achievements of Chery Eta Ursae Majoris 2025 Laboratory, and it was born on Xingtu M3X Mars Architecture 2.0 platform. It can be said that this car integrates the best design concept and advanced technology of the brand, and it has a good sales volume and reputation in the same class vehicle market after listing.

The car comes standard with a 2.0TGDI high-power turbocharged engine, with an engine power of 192kW and a maximum engine torque of 400N.m It is equipped with a self-developed 7-speed DCT powershift. In addition, Aisin 8AT transmission is added to the four-wheel drive version. Compared with DCT dual clutch, the driving passion is slightly inferior, but it has advantages in fuel economy and driving smoothness.

In terms of power performance, this 2.0TGDI high-power turbocharged engine will bring you surging power as long as you are willing to step on the oil. At 1750 rpm, the engine turbine intervened, and the turbine intervention was relatively soft, and there was no obvious sense of suddenness. Start and mid-course acceleration can feel a good sense of lightness, even in standard mode. Of course, under the ECO energy-saving mode, the agricultural machinery will become lazy. The biggest function of this mode is to save fuel when running at high speed, which is not recommended for daily urban driving.

In sport mode, the idle speed of the engine and the rotational speed at the same throttle opening will increase, and the logic of gear shifting will be further behind. If you step on the accelerator deeply at this time, the rotational speed of the engine will soar to the red line position, without deliberately limiting the rotational speed, and the output power of each gear will be full to the greatest extent. Of course, the acceleration you can feel at this time is also the fiercest.

The steering of Yao’s car is not light, even at low speed, it will appear a little calm. The car can adjust the settings of sports and comfort according to habits, but I personally think the difference is not too big. In addition to the heavy steering experience, the steering feel and linearity are very good, and there will be no loose and tight torque when the steering wheel turns to a certain point, and it can be easily held on bumpy roads.

This model is equipped with flying fish extrasensory chassis technology with CDC electromagnetic suspension as the core. During driving, the road conditions can be monitored in real time through five body attitude sensors, four electromagnetic shock absorbers and a controller, and the body attitude can be adjusted at any time. The most obvious thing is that the overall posture and the front, back, left and right support of the vehicle are really better when turning at a large angle and at high speed and passing through high-speed undulating sections.

This technology can also reduce the vehicle head-up phenomenon by 36%, weaken the braking nod by 30%, and improve the anti-roll ability and isolation performance by 5% and 40% respectively. The overall suspension comfort is improved by 30%. If you are a carsick person, the experience will be more obvious.

The suspension adjustment of the car is slightly hard, and the journey is relatively long. It provides three self-defined suspension modes: comfort, standard and sports. With the blessing of CDC electromagnetic suspension system, I personally feel that the stability of the whole car at high speed and the comfort of passing through bumpy roads are very good, and I have a certain sense of advanced driving.

In terms of braking, the car version still maintains a high standard, the brake pedal is adjusted very comfortably, and the position is moderate. From the initial stage of braking to the final stop, you can feel a good sense of linearity, and you can always keep the output of braking force all the time, which will give you a very practical feeling.

Double laminated glass is used before and after the test drive model, and many parts of the car body are optimized for sound insulation and noise reduction, so you don’t have to worry about too much noise when driving at high speed. Driving at a constant speed of 100 km/h, the conversation and listening to music in the car can keep normal volume. In-vehicle NVH performance of Starway Eta Ursae Majoris should be at the upstream level of the same level.

The borderless front grille design uses a new hub shape.

After talking about the dynamic performance, let’s talk about the static part of Starway Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition. As a new version of Starway Eta Ursae Majoris, the Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition mainly aims at upgrading the hardware of the walking part, and there is not much change in appearance.

The design concept of "optical beauty" is still used in the design, which has a strong sense of the future as a whole, but it also has a sense of stability as a medium-sized SUV model, which is very suitable for young consumers to buy.

The front grille has a borderless design, and the diamond-shaped middle net incorporates digital elements. Compared with the traditional "big mouth" design, the details are much better, and it is easier to remember this face. The top of the front grille is decorated with black bright decorative strips and gold decorative strips, which will bring a sense of luxury when combined. The flat EXEED Star Road English LOGO also looks exquisite.

Starway Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition has a body size of 4781/1920/1671mm and a wheelbase of 2815mm, and is positioned as a medium-sized SUV. Smooth lines and short front and rear suspension design make the side ratio of this car look very comfortable, and also highlight certain sports attributes. The hidden door handle is still standard, which reduces the driving drag coefficient and is more beautiful.

The shape line of the rear of the car is tough, which echoes the shape of the front face well. Everyone is familiar with the through taillights. The four-exhaust shape on the lower bumper and the vertical high-position brake light on the rear spoiler make this car a little bit like a sports car.

To change, the biggest thing about this new car is the use of new wheels, the design of dense mesh, the bright surface treatment, and the golden brand LOGO in the center, which gives a sense of exquisiteness and high quality. The tire configuration of the test drive model adopts COOPER brand, and the tire size is 245/50R20, which complements the strong sports style and appearance.

Large-size curved screen of scientific and technological luxury cockpit

The interior of Starway Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition remains the same as its appearance, and it still adopts the design idea of luxury models. The enclosed cockpit gives people a very safe and comfortable feeling. A large area of leather package and the application of appropriate chrome decoration add a sense of quality and exquisiteness to the cockpit.

The position of the auxiliary instrument panel is relatively high, and there is no gap between it and the central armrest. This design allows the driver to naturally put his right elbow on it when driving, thus alleviating the fatigue of driving for a long time. Three functional knobs with good texture are designed in front, namely, driving mode and air conditioning adjustment. A wireless charging panel for mobile phone, a hidden cup holder and storage box are provided below.

The 24.6-inch curved dual screen bears the experience of science and technology in the car. Compared with the flat panel, the curved surface design will make the viewing angle more comfortable, and the display quality of the screen is very high and clear. Built-in lion zhiyun LION5.0 car networking system. The system is more familiar than everyone else. The system has a simple and bright interface design, rich online entertainment APP and intelligent voice function, which is completely sufficient for daily use.

There is also a very bright spot in the cockpit of Xingtu Eta Ursae Majoris, that is, on September 26th, 2023, Eta Ursae Majoris won the title of "the first batch of zero-formaldehyde cars in China" in the seminar of "China Healthy Car Research Plan" sponsored by China Consumers Association and undertaken by China Automobile Data.

Referring to the national standard "Sampling and Determination Method of Volatile Organic Compounds and Aldehydes and Ketones in Cars" (HJ/T 400) and the international standard "Internal Air of Road Vehicles Part 1: Specifications and Methods for Determining Volatile Organic Compounds in Cabins in Vehicle Laboratories" (ISO 12219-1), the automobile products that have been off-line for less than 33 days and have a mileage of less than 50km are selected as the evaluation objects. At the same time, in order to investigate the consistency of automobile production quality in mass production, different batches of mass production vehicles with off-line time interval of not less than 30 days are selected from the same sales model and the same configuration model for evaluation and comparison.

Eta Ursae Majoris meets the conditions of "formaldehyde emission concentration ≤ 15 ug/m in normal temperature mode, and formaldehyde emission concentration ≤ 10 ug/m in driving mode", which meets the zero formaldehyde vehicle standard. This gives consumers, especially those with children, more peace of mind when traveling.

In terms of ride space, Star Road Eta Ursae Majoris benefits from the long wheelbase of 2815mm. Passengers with a height of 182cm enter the back row, and the overall sitting posture is extended. After sitting, there is still a lot of room for the head and legs. The length of the back seat cushion is also enough to support the thigh, and passengers feedback that the ride comfort in the back row is excellent.

Full text summary:

The main change of Starway Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition this time is that the "Flying Fish Super Chassis Technology" with CDC electromagnetic suspension as the core is decentralized to the two-wheel drive model, which has become the standard of the whole system. This will undoubtedly improve the quality-price ratio of Starway Eta Ursae Majoris once again, so that the entry-level models can also enjoy comfortable driving experience.

In addition, Starway Eta Ursae Majoris’s cockpit, which meets the zero-formaldehyde automobile standard, not only dispels a consumer’s concern about the quality of in-car control, but also makes itself stand out among the same or even higher-level models, and once again improves the texture of the whole vehicle. If you are concerned about driving comfort, space performance, or cockpit health, Starway Eta Ursae Majoris Flying Fish Edition will be a good choice.
