Which is the most suitable Family Car?
It sounds like an easy question but it isn’t. There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing one; from safety, seating capacity, fuel consumption, comfort e.t.c.
“ What’s a Dong Feng?’’ My friend asked. “Okay, for starters, Dong Feng is among the Big Four car manufactures in China”, I replied.
We were going to visit HK Motors Kenya LTD for a test drive of the new Dong Feng Glory 580 SUV. In Asian countries, it’s called the DFSK Glory 580. We were received well by Mr. Feng, the MD and after a short briefing in his office, we proceeded to a tea estate in Kiambu.
The drive was amazing and everything about that car was flawless. The car carving aesthetic design had a sporty body outlook from the front bumper all the way to the rear bumper. The LED daytime lights in the Lion-eye-shaped headlamp have a great eyesight appeal. The car had a sunroof of which when opened made the cabin full of life, fresh air, and nature’s aroma as we glided on the tarmac along the Kiambu tea estates. The 17- inch chrome rims, the chrome door handles, the rear spoiler; all looked great.
The Interior is as important as the exterior. To my amazement, the DFSK Glory 580 has leather upholstery on all the seats, European standard. And it’s a 7 Seater!. The music/sound system is awesome. Comes with 6 speakers built-in and the interior portrays luxury at its best. The legroom is enough designed for all 7 seats, 7 adults can sit comfortably in this Crossover SUV. All the door windows and side mirrors are electrically powered and can adjust by the touch of a button.
Under the hood, the DFSK Glory 580 is powered by a 1498 cc (1.5 Ltrs) Petrol engine with a Turbocharger. The engine delivers a maximum power of 110 kW (147Hp). It drives with much power since the turbocharger boosts the initial engine power and has low fuel consumption.
DFSK Glory 580 is also exported to Germany.
