Smart technology is one of the main focuses of this upgrade, with the all-new Roewe RX5 featuring an “Emotional Interaction Intelligent Cabin” that includes a 27-inch sliding screen with a horizontal resolution of up to 4K level, 85% NTSC color gamut, and Local Dimming and Mini-LED backlight technology, achieving a contrast ratio of 100,000:1 and precise light control.
In addition to hardware upgrades, the all-new Roewe RX5 is also equipped with “Shanshui UI” in terms of human-machine interaction (HMI) design, which recreates the descriptions of the twenty-four solar terms in ancient Chinese poems. The Roewe RX5 also has FOTA (firmware over-the-air) upgrade capability.In terms of intelligent driving, the Roewe RX5 is equipped with three Horizon Journey 3 chips developed in-house, coupled with 28 sensors, including an 8 million pixel front camera, high-precision positioning module, ultrasonic radar, and millimeter-wave radar. The official announcement claims that it can achieve NGP function and full-scenario parking. Judging from its parameters, this upgrade of the all-new third-generation Roewe RX5 can be called all-round, and its product strength has also been greatly improved. Compared with products of the same level, it has taken the lead in making huge innovations in both assisted driving and the cabin. However, it’s unknown under what circumstances the official comprehensive fuel consumption of 1.4L was achieved, and the official hasn’t provided further explanation yet. We also look forward to testing the fuel consumption of this vehicle in practice after experiencing it in the future.
