16 August, 2019
A glimpse of the Wuling Confero Series journey began at the launch of August 2, 2017 in Senayan City, Jakarta, the same year when Wuling Motors was present as one of the automotive manufacturers in Indonesia. The name Confero is taken from Latin. ‘Con’ means ‘together’ and ‘fero’ which means ‘to bear’, or when combined into menjadi togetherness ’. While ‘S’ in the name Confero S is an abbreviation of ‘Sporty’.
At that time, this MPV-type car used the projector’s headlights with daytime running light, there were also fog lights on the front. While the Confero S rear lights are equipped with LED lights.
Confero S has dimensions of length 4,530 mm, width of 1,691 mm and height of 1,730, including roof rails. The luggage can reach 250 liters if all the seats are installed for passengers. In the interior, Wuling Confero S is able to accommodate 7 passengers.
Wuling Confero S also has great safety features. These features are the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), rear disc brakes, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), rear parking camera, dual SRS airbags in front, 4 rear parking sensors and 2 parking sensors in front , ISOFIX, auto unlock collision and auto door lock by speed. With these advantages offered, the Wuling Confero S became one of the MPV cars that received positive response at that time.
Stepping on its second year, Wuling Motors adds a Wuling Confero S variant, the Confero S ACT which is equipped with additional features to provide new experiences for consumers. Different from its predecessor, the Confero S ACT uses a 1,500cc gasoline engine and is capable of producing power up to 107 hp and peak torque of 142 Nm. This engine delivers power to the rear wheels through an e-Clutch transmission made in Germany, Schaeffler. The name Schaeffler itself already has a good reputation for developing semi-automatic transmissions. The innovation of this transmission makes it easy to change gears, without losing the sensation of changing gears manually on the gear lever and is efficient in maintenance.
