The SUV vehicle segment is gaining popularity. Even today, family car enthusiasts have also begun to switch to SUV-type cars.
This is because modern SUVs now also consider the comfort factor and passenger capacity equivalent to a family car. But they still get a burly, dynamic and sporty car. That concept is also what the modern Wuling Almaz RS EX SUV is trying to offer which presents premium MPV comfort according to the tastes of the indonesian market.
Almaz RS EX also offers a 7-seater configuration for consumers who want more passenger capacity. This aspect is an advantage of the Almaz RS EX compared to competitors at the same level as the Hyundai Creta and Honda H-RV which only offer a 5-seater configuration. Another thing that makes Almaz RS EX more attractive is of course the price factor.
Wuling Almaz RS EX, which is produced at the Cikarang factory, is priced at IDR 360 million, much cheaper than the Hyundai Creta and Honda HR-V which are marketed above IDR 400 million. Although the price is competitive, the features and technology on the Almaz RS EX are claimed to be equivalent to premium cars priced at IDR 600 million and above.
Almaz RS is the debut of Wuling Silver Global Logo in Indonesia. This new logo concept further blends with the sporty exterior appearance and futuristic grille. On the back, the dynamic tail design further enhances the exterior appearance of the Almaz RS.
On the legs, it looks more dashing with wheels with a size of 17 inches and a chrome exhaust. The interior of Wuling Almaz RS displays an elegant and sporty taste that is increasingly thick with the dominance of Synthetic Leather layers and black dominant dressing on the entire car interior, from the dashboard to the door trim.
Comfort is even more pronounced with the presence of a seat adjuster that functions to adjust the sitting position during the trip. While in the second and third rows, it adopts the captain seat configuration. Wuling Almaz is equipped with luxury car features such as a panoramic sunroof which is also available in the Almaz EX variant.
Amazingly, the Almaz sunroof can be opened and closed with just a voice command thanks to Wuling Indonesian Command (WIND) technology. As is known, this WIND feature allows drivers and passengers to communicate with the car using Indonesian, especially activating various functions such as opening and closing windows, sunroofs, accessing entertainment such as music or radio, making phone calls, and many others with the keyword 'Halo Wuling'.
The voice command technology will certainly help the driver to stay focused on directing the eyes forward without having to be distracted to find the operating button. This voice command feature further strengthens the position of the Almaz RS EX compared to competitors. Driving a Wuling Almaz RS EX is even more fun through Internet of Vehicle (IoV) technology or Wuling Remote Control App, Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).
All of them are part of the Wuling Interconnected Smart Ecosystem (WISE). Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) comes as a feature for security. In Almaz RS EX, ADAS consists of Adaptive Cruise consisting of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Bend Cruise Assistance (BCA), and Safe Distance & Braking Assistance equipped with Safe Distance Warning (SDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB).
The Almaz RS EX is a smart car that prioritizes the vehicle's connectivity via the Internet through the Wuling Remote Control App in the My Wuling+ app. Users can access various functions through the Bluetooth key, such as vehicle positioning, vehicle remote control, geo-fencing security. Almaz RS EX carries a 1,451cc, DOHC, DWT engine with a turbocharger. The immersed horsepower is 140 hp with 5,200 rpm / 250 Nm supported by a CVT transmission that makes the driving experience even more enjoyable.
