● Power turns up trumps, but the engine is with excessive noise
In real life driving, Benni‘s clutch pedal is just right suitable, that’s no hurry if you are a novice, because the clutch point is pretty clear, and soon you will be able to get started! Driving is fairly light with the good feeling gear lever. Foot feeling is soft when brake, the reaction is not direct, the pedal position is appropriate, The foot feeling is better than the same price level of other mini-car.
I believe we are very concerned about the performance of Benni’s power, as this is one of our major testing process, then we must first understand the engine. CHANA Benni carrys model JL474Q2 1.3L engine, all-aluminum materials, dual-overhead camshaft, 4-stroke inline 4-cylinder structure, with multi-point injection electronic transmission technology, 110N .m of torque will be outbroken at 3500 ~ 4500 rpm, and maximum power can be achieved 63.0kw at 6,000 rpm. This engine was developed&improved based on technology of CHANA Suzuki Swift’s engine, and it has 14 patents.
It is said this engine passed through 500 hours of continuous full load test, start testing under 34 centigrade in winter, 5,000 m above sea level plateau stability test in summer and several kinds of power match tests, they all have shown very stable performance.
Indeed, Benni‘s power is very good in its class, power is very direct, acceleration is also very fast with very light feeling. After all, the 1.3L engine only needs to bring around 1 ton’s vehicle body, advantage is obvious, it is absolutely enough in city use. Nothing but the engine noise begin to become higher while it is beyond 2500rpm! Of course, for a micro-car is normal, you need take time to adapt.
