Expect the unexpected

Chinese manufactured cars are here to stay. Despite many hardcore branders still frowning on these vehicles, the new JAC T9 will be a force that cannot be ignored on paper and on the roads.

The 2.0L 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission delivers a comfortable 125Kw and 410Nm torque. It can safely and legally tow 3 500 kilogrammes. With measurements of 5 330mm and a width of 1 965mm and standing 1 920mm tall with a wheelbase of 3110mm, this car cannot be missed at all.

Safety features, driver and passenger comfort, looks and all the technology expected come standard with the T9.

The car’s presence is clearly engraved from the daytime running lights to the rear clusters housing the brake, indicator and reverse lights.

When it comes to the interior, be ready to be surprised beyond all expectations as the upholstery is of high standard with precision stitching expected from premium brands. Even the multi-functional steering wheel speaks volumes as it not only holds the finger touch controls like the speedcruise, but cellphone answering, volume buttons and the infotainment system can also be controlled without the driver taking his hands off the steering wheel.

The front seats are heat-and electric-adjusted, while the rear passengers have their own adjustable climate control. Other features that come as standard are the 220V power outlet, automatic headlights and wipers, as well as an auto dimming rear-view mirror.

The car comes standard with roof rails and a sunroof – giving it a sporty look.

The T9 will be available in 4×2 and a 4×4 version according to a Chinese website, while the T9 will feature a low range transfer case and a rear differential lock. The load box comes fitted with tie hooks for easier strapping of loads, while it comes rubberised as standard to prevent uncalled damage to the load box.

The safety specifications are quite impressive as the T9 comes with seven airbags, including for the rear passengers, autonomous emergency braking (AEB), blind spot warning, tyre pressure monitoring, surround view parking cameras, child safety seat anchors and lane keeping assist, to mention a few.

Top Revs will surely be one of the first to test drive the car once it lands in Namibia. Meanwhile, potential owners can contact JAC dealers across the country for more information.
