March 12 (THEWILL) — Zahav Automobile Co., the Nigerian official representative of the Changan automobile brand, has offered Changan 9 Star Bus in the domestic market of the minibus segment.
According to the company, the new bus, which is already on sale, is characterized by safety, body strength, practicality and powerful engine with low fuel consumption.
With all these attributes, the bus is seen as the best choice for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and the country’s logistics concerns.
Explaining the production process of the bus, Zahav Automobile said that during the production process of the Star 9 mini bus, Changan took the body through the integrated stamping technology.
As a result, the minibus comes with improved steel formality and body strength.
He further stated that “With a dimension of 4430mm long, 1655mm wide and 1935mm tall, Star 9 unfolds with a body held in place by panels made with integral stamping technology, this which means better resistance to torsion.”
In terms of comfort and space, he added that, “Named for the seating capacity available for sale in Nigeria, Changan Star 9 is by no means a ‘mini’ inside. On the contrary, it is magically spacious, with versatile seating formations.
A spacious multi-seater, the Changan Star 9 is not only roomier than its peers; it offers multiple seating arrangements for 2, 5, 7, 9, 11 passengers, maximizing space efficiency.
“Its rear seats are also equipped with flexible and simple adjusters, making it easy to adjust the cargo space according to the needs of the passenger or the load.
“Positioned as a leader for business passengers and city logistics, the Star 9 minibus is powered by the highly reliable 1.5L I4, MPI petrol, 14G15S engine mated to a traditional 5-speed manual gearbox.
“The engine produces a maximum power of 82 kW at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 130 Nm at 5,000 rpm. Therefore, in addition to excellent energy performance, Star 9 also combines reliability and efficiency in a smart package.
“As well as being powered by a highly reliable and efficient 1.5L I4, MPI gasoline, 14G15S engine, the Star 9 flaunts a strong, rugged body combined with an affordable price,” the company said.
