Brilliance H530 - the elite car of the Chinese car industry
At the international exhibition in 2014 in MoscowChinese car manufacturer presented its new development - sedan Brilliance H530. This model is fundamentally different from previously released. It can be called unique in its own way. The car began to be sold from the first day of the presentation in Russia.
Developing a new model
Having tested the new "Brilliance", motoristsstated the fact of the entrance of the Chinese auto industry to the big leagues. In many respects it was promoted by close cooperation with the company "BMW". It should be given credit, the sedan from the first days of sales has won its niche in the Russian market.
The Chinese themselves refer the brand to one of the mostexpensive in the Middle Kingdom. This is largely due to the fact that the manufacturer was engaged in the development of Brilliance H530 with well-known companies such as Porsche (technical equipment), Pininfarina (design), Magna (body). These cars mostly remain in the Chinese market, but this trust of the world-famous brand already inspires respect for the company.
The model is very decent interior, thanksuse of quality materials for finishing, expensive plastic and polyurethane, they, incidentally, do not produce an unpleasant smell. Good assembly without cracks, although it's too early to speak about high design style. There are a lot of metal inserts in the finish, they are impractical, they catch your eye and do not decorate the general layout of the Brilliance H530.
The panel devices are read well, only theytoo small marking, and at the display of the on-board computer, located in the center, a muffled illumination of blue color. The seats are profiled with lateral support, but the grip causes a flat cushion and the material itself. For an extra charge, the company offers a leather salon, although it is not included in any of the complete sets.
Rear comfort sofa, high backrest, seatsenough, as in the C-class machine. The only obstacle is a large tunnel in the center. There is no armrest. The luggage compartment is roomy (520 l). There are drawbacks in the design: the loading port is too high, the opening is too narrow. And the advantage is that it can fit a full-size spare.
In the engine compartment there is a gasolineICE (1,6), producing power of 110 hp, with a torsion moment of 151 Hm, available from 4 thousand revolutions. For the transmission is responsible for automatic transmission (5) and mechanics. Brilliance H530 accelerates to hundreds in 13 seconds. and has a top speed of 175 km / h.
In motion, the car demonstrates itself well,the course is smooth, the speed of the car is gaining momentum dynamically and almost imperceptibly. Only all the dynamics negates the excessively rigid suspension, which requires a speed reset before overcoming road obstacles.
Of course, the engine and gearbox do not provide hightechnical indicators, but the motor has a good traction already at the bottom, so for everyday driving, its efficiency will be sufficient both when driving in the city, and on high-speed roads.
Yes, and bundled, rid of the "toy"options, became more serious and interesting. Already in the basic version of Brilliance H530 (price from 560 thousand rubles.) Installed: power steering, LED optics, stabilization, remote control of the trunk, electrical package, immobilizer, parking sensors. In the Deluxe package, customers are offered automatic transmission, access without a key, a leather steering wheel and so on.
Brilliance cars arriving atthe domestic market, on the general background of Chinese models highlights a higher quality, although there are still not enough defects. For example, having figured out and eliminated the gaps between the body components, in some models the manufacturer forgot to treat with due attention to noise insulation, in particular, to the wheel arches.
It's noticed that users who first sawBrilliance H530 (testimonial confirmation), subconsciously begin to find out which of the already known cars this model can resemble. This is partly responsible for the Chinese manufacturers themselves, earned a similar image. Perhaps, something similar to other brands in the H530 will not find work, but frank plagiarism in the car is missing.
On the one hand, the car is nothing particularly brightIt does not stand out: there are enough such models today. On the other hand, when sitting in the Brilliance H530, the driver does not immediately realize that it is of Chinese origin.
One of the main advantages of Chinese cars -low cost. But this plus gradually goes into the background. Cars get a new level of quality, which is worth the other money, although the choice is for motorists.
