Geely Borui (GC9) Compare Hyundai Sonata

  [car03 test]  With the rapid development of China's auto market, gradually expanding Chinese brand car prices, the situation has gradually been reversed. Do not believe? See comparison BoRui GC9 and nine Sonata know.

  BoRui GC9, Geely's latest flagship sedan, whether it is design, workmanship, materials, configuration, or power systems, chassis tuning, can give people a fresh feeling, it is a very strong brand in China in the car. Sonata IX, Beijing Hyundai is currently the main product level in the car, after accumulating eight Resona experience, design becomes more stable, and comprehensive strength has also been a steady increase, this level is a very competitive product.

  The comparison of the two models are BoRui GC9 2015 flagship 1.8T models, the official guide price is 176,800 yuan; nine 2015 models Sonata 1.6T DLX distinguished type, the official guide price is 217,800 yuan. 41,000 yuan can do contrast the difference? Why not find BoRui GC91.8T nine Sonata 1.6T models and similar price to do comparison? Do not worry, I will later give a clear answer.

● Appearance: the same atmosphere, calm design style

    Geely hopes to achieve outstanding product design to enhance the brand image of the object, so in recent years, the new products are always bright spots, progress in terms of design is really obvious, but BoRui GC9 is the leader among . Remember when BoRui GC9 initial exposure, it has caused a sensation in the industry, followed by that is "the most beautiful car brand in China", "the most beautiful Geely Automobile" them praise the title.

  Sonata nine by the latest design concepts of modern cars - 2.0 to create a fluid sculpture. Compared to the first generation of fluid sculpture design philosophy to create Sonata eight, its obvious design change, I see it as two different styles that really is not an exaggeration. Sonata nine now gives the impression that the body lines more capable, the overall shape and details of the more mature, did not seem like the Sonata eight bells and whistles.

  Two car front design comes with a strong family likeness, by contrast, I prefer BoRui GC9 the resistance, the front face of the avant-garde and with obvious Chinese characteristics, yet looked fine sense of quality. In contrast Sonata nine front face, a hexagon grid gate feels somewhat mediocre, ordinary, and I think the only comparison is the special dot-matrix grid.

  In terms of body size, in addition to the relatively narrow width of 4mm outside, other data BoRui GC9 body size were significantly more than the Sonata IX, wherein the body a relatively long length of 101mm, the relatively long wheelbase 45mm, height relatively high 28mm. It may be less sensitive to numbers, but when they are put together, in fact, with the gap between the eye can see, BoRui GC9 will be relatively even more tall point.

  BoRui GC9 rear uses a fastback design, modeling full, but also very sense of line, just look a little thick rear bumper a little; Sonata IX relatively short rear, with large rear windshield and slightly higher inclination after Benn spoiler with, there is no lack of dynamic visual effects, but weird taillights too eye-catching, but seemed a bit incongruous.

2-car fight work and configuration

● The interior: design styles, the outcome depends on the details and configuration

    With the appearance of the same, BoRui GC9 interior design also gives a fresh feeling. Although in recent years China brand in the design of significant progress, but there is little it can do so well. Its interior this to my first impression is the atmosphere, has the scale, in line with people's tastes mature, home, business is very suitable.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  When I got nine Sonata cabin, and it gave me the feeling BoRui GC9 distinct design style is more biased in favor of fresh, simple and elegant, I think it would be more in line with the tastes of young people. Also worth mentioning is its interior design Bisuonata eight really a lot of progress, which is the kind of interior cheap price and did not appear on it, exquisite sense there was a marked improvement.

  They are mainly made from the top of the center console is made of soft material, surface treatment lines are more appropriate. Slightly different, Sonata nine in the dashboard cover position using hard plastic production, and decorated with "stitching", could easily be mistaken use of leather-wrapped, looking at some of the relatively strong sense of quality. As for the center console trim, BoRui GC9 uses people like wood styles and Sonata nine style is similar to carbon fiber, which is more flattering styles vary, anyway, they feel the same.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  Dashboard style to BoRui GC9 car added some stylish atmosphere, the central color LCD screen can display a wealth of information about the vehicle, but the operation is not enough convenient, single-screen display of information is not enough rich. Make, for example, if I need to see the average fuel consumption, mileage and average speed, then through the right side of the dashboard that little button to switch the display screen one by one. In contrast, the Sonata nine both have performed well, with the buttons on the steering wheel can operate this LCD screen, the information on the same screen can display richer. Obviously, on the usefulness of the Sonata IX dashboard better, but the premise is that you can accept the slightly old-fashioned style dashboard.

  Steering wheel styles are good, also have adopted the flat style design. In contrast, I am more like nine Sonata steering wheel, not only looking at a number of relatively dynamic, and the size is more easy way out, wrapped in leather surface also some of the more delicate. In contrast BoRui GC9, it is too large relative to the size of the steering wheel, and the entry points are wrapped in leather surface is smooth, delicate texture is not enough. Fortunately, BoRui GC9 regain the delicacy of the steering wheel multi-function button, the texture aspect of a point.

  Car multimedia system configuration aspects, BoRui GC9 better, it is equipped with Infinty sound system, the number of speakers also more; although there Sonata nine premium sound system, but need to pay an option. As for the user experience, the two vehicles have their own characteristics, I think the performance is not comparable, no advantage of.



  

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  BoRui GC9 multimedia system configuration also provides some specialties, such as provided in the control area behind the modular Dangba knobs, buttons. Further, provided herein buttons, knobs have a very good degree of refinement, the operation is also more convenient, is not just a decoration.

  They are equipped with a panoramic sunroof, both to enhance the ride comfort, but also a sense of quality. From the measured data, the Sonata nine panoramic sunroof in length, width and length of the data can be opened are clearly dominant, so the lighting area and a natural open area is even greater.

  The above said, BoRui GC9 advantage in the configuration is very obvious, especially comfortable and high-tech profile, and this advantage is built on BoRui GC9 official price is relatively cheap, the premise of 41,000 yuan. Now I do not want to know directly to BoRui GC91.8T flagship models do comparison reasons and nine Sonata 1.6T similar price yet? Sonata 1.6T since nine top models are configured with far, then the other 1.6T models even more immeasurably, and this is the answer.

3 by comparison and storage space

● passenger space: less

    Then take a look at the interior space comparing two cars, first take the space. In my own case, height 1.79 meters, good for driving in the regulation after sitting, BoRui GC9 the front head room is 2 refers Sonata nine front head space is 3 fingers, the latter a little advantage.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  Two car front seats remain unchanged before the regulation, when I were sitting on their rear seats, BoRui GC9 head space can provide two fingers, fists multi legroom; Sonata nine fists can provide about half of legroom, but headroom is almost zero. Thus, in fact, they are basically the same back room, but the two cars sitting in the back of the design are different, resulting in a head space advantage, while the other is an advantage legroom.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  As for the rear center position, they have the same staffing levels, have three-point seat belts, rear center headrest and a rear center armrest, of course, this is also essential configured. In terms of comfort, BoRui GC9 perform better, because it's better rear headroom, allowing the waist, neck to get a better stretch.

●Storage space: a focus on space, a detail-oriented

  Then the interior storage space. In this regard the performance of the two cars have advantages and disadvantages, have failed to achieve perfection. Such as a glove box, a larger Sonata nine space, but BoRui GC9 more details of the deal in place, inside the glovebox flannel bedding; front storage compartment, Sonata Dangba front nine in a place relatively more digital products storage box and front center armrest significantly larger space; the rear center armrest, BoRui GC9 more than a storage box, and doing more sophisticated; the front and rear door storage box, BoRui GC9 design more reasonable.

Finally, the storage capacity of the trunk. From the measured data, the Sonata nine overall dominant trunk, but the actual use is not the thing, because the speaker sound system limits its storage capacity. We usually do the test to be used as an example of the trunk, trunk Sonata IX can not accommodate two stacked luggage, while BoRui GC9 then there is no problem. In addition, BoRui GC9 trunk on the details of the deal also performed better, the most obvious place is the support rods are wrapped up tight to prevent any damage when loading bulky items. Of course, there is also a Sonata nine characteristics of the place, that is, induction trunk function.

4 the measured performance data

● hardware and performance testing: a fast acceleration, braking a good

BoRui GC9 equipped with 1.8T turbocharged engine + 6-speed manual gearbox power system, and is nine Sonata 1.6T turbocharged engine +7 speed dual-clutch gearbox power systems. Do not think BoRui GC9 the 1.8T engine has a larger displacement have the advantage, in fact, the book is full of dynamic data lost nine Sonata 1.6T engine. As for the actual performance of how, behind the answer immediately.

  Before entering the test session, there is little need to explain in advance, due to the different objective conditions (road conditions, ambient temperature, etc.), the data obtained in this test will be a little different with the previous single model test data, and this time the two vehicles comparison test is substantially the same objective conditions, so the comparison will be more equitable.

◆ acceleration comparison test

    After several tests, BoRui GC9 the 0-100km / h acceleration time is 11.09 seconds the fastest, while the Sonata nine is 9.60 seconds, which is relatively fast 1.49 seconds. In fact, this result does not surprise me, after all dynamic data Sonata IX advantage, but also relatively light curb weight of 194kg (BoRui GC9 curb weight is 1760kg, Sonata Nine is 1566kg).

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8Tcar03car03

  We can see from the above graph acceleration, in fact BoRui GC9 not start slow, 0-55km / h acceleration time even Bisuonata nine little faster, but unfortunately after the power output stage is slowing down, the Sonata nine ahead smoothly, and gradually widened the distance.

◆ brake comparison test

    Acceleration significantly behind the BoRui GC9, in 100-0km / h brake test session pulled inning, with 38.14 meters to win the outstanding results. In contrast Sonata IX, 41.49 meters of 100-0km / h braking distance is only a qualified success only, this part is BoRui GC9 opened a larger distance.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8Tcar03car03

  You can clearly see from the above graph brake, full brake entire process, BoRui GC9 braking power output than the Sonata nine strong, while the rear section is particularly evident, winning it is naturally reasonable. In contrast Sonata IX, in fact, the early part of the braking force output brake system is adequate, but after the segment fluctuations, resulting in the general results. In addition to excellent braking performance even more outside, BoRui GC9 brake pedal fed back foot feeling very linear, giving a more adequate confidence.

◆ fuel consumption comparison test

    This time, the fuel consumption comparison test by me and Huang Rongjia teacher complete, objective environmental testing is basically the same, vehicles are using ECO saving mode, the case of the air conditioning system is basically the same (A / C turned on, 25 ℃, 1/3 amount of wind), additional each exchange will travel about 50 kilometers driving. In short, try to make all the pieces off the same conditions, to ensure fairness.

  After about 107 km comprehensive road driving, one hundred kilometers BoRui GC9 fuel consumption is 9.7L, and the Sonata nine hundred kilometers is 8.2L. Compare the results are clear, the Sonata of nine to win a clear advantage. BoRui GC9 lost in this test session, in addition to the gap between the power system, I think it really should "lose weight", and a curb weight even Bisuonata Nine 194kg, equivalent to more than two adult passengers inside the car, how fuel consumption how can we not high?

5 daily driving experience

● driving experience: the same is different styles

    Everyday driving, whether it is urban congestion, or the high-speed road, the power gap between the two vehicles is also more obvious. BoRui GC9 gave me the feeling is unhurried, steady school style, power and curb weight are the main constraints; by contrast, is relatively much light Sonata nine, in addition to the power output greater reason, curb weight lighter, more sensitive throttle adjustment, faster transmission reaction is the main reason.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  They are equipped with a driving mode system, both economic / standard / sport three driving modes can be selected. However, even BoRui GC9 opened the sports mode, when the throttle response and sensitivity compared to the standard model no significant changes, the difference is only the transmission speed will upshift delay Bale. Switching from standard mode to the economy mode, the response of the accelerator pedal becomes more sluggish, although there is a certain saving for help, but the power of treading response for everyday driving, it will increase the burden. In other words, to switch from the standard mode to the economic model, its dynamic response will be more obvious changes, and to switch from standard mode to Sport mode, the dynamic response is not as good as expected.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  In contrast, the Sonata nine three driving modes dynamic performance difference will be more obvious differences. After switching from standard mode to Sport mode, it will become more sensitive throttle, gearbox downshift willing actively to enhance the power output requirements. From standard mode to saving mode, the power output is also a significant difference in driving a bit depressing feeling.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  BoRui GC9 six-speed manual gearbox and an engine with more understanding, upshifts speed and smoothness can be satisfactory, but the downshift speed is not fast enough. When deep pedal needs to be accelerated, there will always be a trace of hesitation gearbox, although the engine speed has improved, but keep up the rhythm a little gearbox, which lost a little momentum.

Hyundai Sonata 9 2015 1.6T DLX

  Can not be denied, Sonata nine 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox BoRui GC9 than the six-speed manual gearbox quick shift logic also more reasonable on the lifting gear speed and reaction speed. However, cars equipped with dual-clutch gearbox at low speeds Chuang move on it the same problem occurs when a serious traffic jam really makes one feel uncomfortable.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

Hyundai Sonata 9 2015 1.6T DLX

  They are also equipped with electric power steering system, feedback intensity are relatively moderate, not too heavy or too light performance, point is also relatively clear, the car can reach the mainstream average. The difference is, the dummy bit BoRui GC9 steering system is relatively little, sticky feeling relatively stronger, when a significant shift enough Sonata nine smooth.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  BoRui GC9 uses a double-wishbone front, multi-link independent rear suspension, which is actually rare in the precursor midsize car, after all, the cost of the double wishbone with Bimai Fu Xun higher. In addition, the double-wishbone front suspension arm will be more emphasized in handling the motion characteristics of the models above. As for the Sonata IX, it uses McPherson independent front suspension, multi-link independent rear suspension, which belongs to the same level with the common.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

Hyundai Sonata 9 2015 1.6T DLX

  When the vehicle is traveling, BoRui GC9 in terms of driving quality or comfort aspects are great, solid chassis, heavy sense, to put it bluntly point is the texture. It damper on the adjustment significantly biased in favor of comfort, small bumps on the road almost completely filtered out, to deal with large potholes or higher speed humps can be handled in place. Of course, this chassis adjustment will bring some problems, coupled with their large curb weight, when traveling at high speed lane change, vehicle dynamics will be relatively slow, but also there will be some more obvious shaking. If the suspension can be adjusted too "tough" Some, I believe that its performance will be better.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

Hyundai Sonata 9 2015 1.6T DLX

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

  Sonata IX brisk driving experience belongs to the type of suspension supporting force enough to make it in the high-speed lane change relative BoRui GC9 flexible, body shaking fewer. Its texture is indeed relatively Sonata eight travel has improved, but compared with BoRui GC9, its chassis lacks heavy feeling, in response to continuous finely divided bumpy, overall sense of feeling and a solid chassis is not as strong BoRui GC9.

Geely Borui (GC9) 2015 1.8T

    Thus, they feel belong to different driving styles, BoRui GC9 unfolds is comfortable, calm, and nine Sonata is brisk. So who better performance? In fact, do not have a precise answer, some people like to drive comfortably, Zhongyi feel calm at ease, then he will feel BoRui GC9 performance even more outstanding, like myself; some people are born good move, like brisk driving feeling , then he will feel Sonata nine more outstanding performance, such as my colleague Huang Rongjia.


  ● Summary full text:


  Appearance: the same style, the outcome may be due to the aesthetic, not for comparison.


  Interior: different design, materials equivalent BoRui GC9 higher degree of attention to detail.


  Configuration: BoRui GC9 is no doubt about the winner.


  Passenger space: Sonata IX slight advantage front headroom, rear space is quite two vehicles, while the rear central comfort is BoRui GC9 performing better.


  Storage capacity: cabin storage capacity of the outcome of each, the trunk storage capacity BoRui GC9 performing better.


  Performance: Sonata nine faster acceleration and lower fuel consumption; braking performance BoRui GC9 obvious advantages.


  With: different styles, suitable for home use. If only theory with texture, I think BoRui GC9 better performance.


  Although the three main performance test items inside, BoRui GC9 lost two, but other aspects of the performance and not inferior to the Sonata IX, even at the obvious advantages of such delicacy of interior, vehicle price. From BoRui GC9 body, we can see the next few years, Geely recently a lot of hard work, design, chassis tuning is the best evidence, but can also see the dawn of the development of Chinese-brand vehicles. Just clear objectives and to continue its efforts to catch up with Korean brand I believe things are just around the corner. As for the Sonata IX, which relative to the previous generation models have obvious improvement in the level of the joint venture in the car it has a good price, which of course we can not ignore.
