Stressed managers in China are relying more and more on MPV models, which are often extremely luxuriously equipped and also have relatively powerful engines. While vans and the like are increasingly being replaced by SUV models in Europe, the Middle Kingdom is increasingly relying on comfortable space gliders. Above all for CEOs, but also as luxurious chauffeur vehicles for hotels or a limousine service, the rolling luxury suites are ideal for transporting pampered guests who, above all, value maximum comfort. This clientele is of course also served by the car brand Trumpchi, which competes with the M8 Master, which will be presented at Auto Shanghai 2021, against the competition from Buick, Mercedes-Benz and VW.
Two-tone paintwork causes a stir.
Seen from the outside, that is Trumpchi M8 Master relatively inconspicuous, because apart from the two-tone paintwork, which was kept in black and white, it looks very conventionally designed. Only the large grill with the vertical struts and the headlights, which are drawn far down, which are supposed to symbolize a flower shape and look as if they form a unit with the front grille, stand out a little from the crowd. On the other hand, they provide more visual stimuli front spoiler and side skirts, which are kept in chrome optics. Together with the specially designed Master rims they look elegant from the Trumpchi OEM shelf.
The rims measure 18 inches in diameter and there were Michelin Primacy tires in size 225/55 R18 reared on the luxury van. At the rear, the continuous strip of lights that currently adorns many Chinese models is noticeable, as is the Chrome trim on the rear bumper, which also has two trapezoidal ones Fake exhaust pipes is accompanied. In our opinion, the exterior design is successful, but much less spectacular than the interior, which we will of course discuss in more detail in the next section.
Luxury interior with all amenities.
As soon as you get in, you can see that this vehicle is not a normal Trumpchi M8, but a very special variant. The steering wheel rim is in the lower part Bicolor look, and in the upper part in a grained wood look. The white, quilted leather of the seats looks very high quality and elegant, but is probably extremely sensitive to dirt. There's one behind the front seats partition wallwhich can be electronically darkened. In our opinion, the two individual seats in the rear, or should one say armchairs, look extremely luxurious and inviting.
There is one under the partition Minibar, and also small ones folding tables are on board to guarantee maximum comfort. Of course they are individual seats Electrically adjustable in the rear and offer every imaginable comfort. This makes traveling in this MPV an absolute experience. This also contributes to dimmable starry sky on the headliner, which is otherwise only known from absolute luxury brands such as Rolls-Royce.
A 2-liter turbo gasoline engine provides propulsion.
The 5,15 m long and at least 1,82 m high Trumpchi is powered by a 2-liter turbo gasoline engine with four cylinders and an output of from 252 HP driven. The maximum torque is with 390 Newton meters specified. This means that the colossus stands well in the forage and runs up to 200 kilometers per hour if necessary. The power is transmitted via a Eight-speed automatic on the front wheels. This means that even fast freeway sections are no problem for the 2-ton load, and stressed managers can comfortably rush from appointment to appointment.
Our conclusion on the Trumpchi M8 Master:
It's pretty impressive what Trumpchi has put on the wheels. This vehicle is more comfortable than some student dorms and faster than many compact cars.
