Starting from the design, features and technology, performance, fuel consumption, price, handling and comfort, to the novelty factor of a product.

The Wuling Almaz RS ‘Drive Unlimited Way’ which was named the Best of High SUV Gasoline is a flagship SUV model equipped with advanced innovations in order to optimize driving comfort and ease. The innovation is the Wuling Interconnected Smart Ecosystem (WISE) which combines the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and the Internet of Vehicle (IoV).
The ADAS feature is a modern support system to make it easier for drivers to maintain safety while driving. There are 12 functions in ADAS. Consists of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Bend Cruise Assistance (BCA), Intelligent Cruise Assistance (ICA), Traffic Jam Assistance (TJA), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Safe Distance Warning (SDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Automatic Emergency Brake (AEB), Intelligent Hydraulic Braking Assistance (IHBA), Collision Mitigation System (CMS), Intelligent Head Beam Assistance (IHMA).
Then the Internet of Vehicle (IoV) has various advanced features such as Vehicle Remote Control to control the vehicle remotely via smartphone. Through IoV, the driver can also easily heat the engine, cool the cabin, open and close windows, and lock doors, to Vehicle Positioning which can be accessed using an application installed on a smartphone. In addition, there is also a Geo-Fencing feature or “electronic fence” which serves as a security feature. If the vehicle is known to be outside the specified radius, the vehicle owner will receive a notification via smartphone. Multi-device interface can also be accessed via Bluetooth connection or Bluetooth key.
The Almaz RS is powered by a 4-cylinder petrol engine with 1,500cc turbocharged which produces a maximum power of 140 HP and a peak torque of 250Nm. The performance is distributed through the CVT which makes gearshifting smooth and responsive for this smart digital car.

Besides being able to see the product directly at the Wuling booth located in Hall D, JIEXPO Kemayoran, consumers can also try this Smart SUV in the test drive area. “We provide 2 Almaz RS units that can be tried in IIMS Hybrid 2022.
