Since in this case we are talking about the modern crossover Changan CS35 Plus 2022, it is imperative to talk about the safety of this model. Recently, almost all motorists have paid special attention to this nuance. Therefore, it is not surprising that the manufacturer tried to make not only an affordable car in terms of cost, but also a safe vehicle, which in this regard is in no way inferior to classmates. According to C-NCAP testing, this model scored a good result, fully corresponding to the indicator of four stars. This is a good value considering the budget cost of the SUV. It is worth noting that the equipment of the cross includes 2 - 4 airbags, three-point belts with tensioners and fixing, ISOFIX child seat mountings and numerous driver assistance systems when driving.


Handling and off-road performance

Another important aspect that deserves attention before buying this Chinese car. Here we must immediately pay tribute to the fact that we are mostly talking about the urban model, which is in no way adapted for off-road travel. The car has a small ground clearance of 180 mm, and besides, it is on sale only in front-wheel drive versions. Of course, such equipment will be quite enough for operating a car in the city and on rough terrain. The model feels confident on the road, regardless of the quality of the surface. Separately, it is worth mentioning that the Chinese engineers managed to create an inexpensive car with excellent handling and good maneuverability. A reliable and unpretentious suspension is put on the cross, which may seem tough for many motorists who are accustomed to increased comfort.


Advantages and disadvantages

In order to determine for yourself the feasibility of buying a particular model, it is imperative to weigh all the advantages and disadvantages of the vehicle. To make it easier for car enthusiasts, the key advantages of a car should be noted here, namely:

  • affordable price;
  • inexpensive service;
  • thoughtful configurations;
  • spectacular appearance;
  • attractive interior design;
  • good handling;
  • reliable and unpretentious power unit.

Along with the pros, you also need to talk about the disadvantages of the vehicle. In particular, this model is presented in Russia only in front-wheel drive versions. Cross does not have the most impressive dynamics among classmates. If you service such a car yourself without a visit to the dealership, then difficulties may arise.



This is not to say that the appearance of the Changan CS35 Plus 2022 is the model's strongest point. In fact, we are talking here about a standard modern cross with a corresponding design, which is somewhat reminiscent of the representatives of the German Volkswagen. It is also worth mentioning that in terms of its appearance, the "Chinese" is not significantly different from the older models of the manufacturer Changan, except that it is smaller. In general, the crossover received a rather simple, but at the same time, memorable exterior, which, in combination with well-chosen colors, definitely guarantees close attention from the side to the car.


If we talk about the arrangement of the car inside, then everything here looks more interesting than in terms of appearance. The design is made in a three-color style with sharp transitions, which heats up interest in the vehicle. The soft part of the cabin is decorated in brown, and the main plastic is black. Also, as an addition, there are light decorative inserts. This is not to say that this crossover inside shines with its high-tech, but it should definitely be mentioned that the main controls are very well placed here. In other words, this cross can bribe with practicality.


Sales start

The Changan CS35 Plus crossover is far from a novelty for the domestic automotive market. On the territory of Russia, this model was first shown in September 2018. At that time, the car did not make much of an impression, which is why many simply forgot about this interesting vehicle. Free crossover sales started in Russia in August 2019. Later, exactly one year later, more elaborate variations were released. Now on the territory of Russia the cross is presented in the first generation.



The compact crossover is optimally suited for urban use, especially when it comes to busy metropolitan areas. That is why it is not surprising that drivers began to change into such cars without exception. Now there are many corresponding models on sale, including the Changan CS35 Plus, but among all the cars it is worth highlighting the most interesting competitors for the "Chinese", namely:

  • Mazda CX-30;
  • Hyundai Creta;
  • Kia Seltos;
  • Skoda Karoq.
