Yesterday, VinFast conducted the first series of events to hand over the VinFast Fadil to customers who bought a car. At the same time, VinFast also organizes the Fadil test drive program for those who are interested in this Grade A urban vehicle. Taking advantage of this phase, in addition to watching the process of receiving and receiving a large number of VinFast vehicles, the main purpose of the Delicate Vehicle group is to experience Fadil quickly to see if it is interesting and attractive.
First of all, talking about VinFast Fadil, the car is being sold at a preferential price of VND 394.9 million (VAT included). According to VinFast's announced schedule from September 1, 2019, the price of VinFast Fadil will return to the listed level, equivalent to VND 465 million (VAT included). This figure is much higher than other models in the same segment, such as the Toyota Wigo, Hyundai Grand i10, KIA Morning or the Honda Brio that are about to debut.
Before walking around a round of handover programs, I took the time to look and feel the small universal car of VinFast, both in the display area and test drive area. First of all, I feel that the overall perfection of VinFast Fadil is quite good. The standard equipment of the car is similar to the competitors, such as halogen lights, 15 "wheels, front / rear brake configuration is disk / drum.
Advanced Fadil version I took photos and test drive has added many internal and external equipment, the price for this advanced option package VinFast announced is 77 million (including VAT). The car has a front light and LED taillights. The additional facilities are installed in the interior including leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel with functional buttons, 1-zone automatic air conditioning and especially entertainment system with 7 "touchscreen support. Apple CarPlay / Android Auto In addition, Fadil Premium version is upgraded with a reversing camera, reverse sensor and has 6 airbags instead of 2 bags as in the Standard version.
Both versions of VinFast Fadil use 4-cylinder gasoline engine in line with 1.4L capacity, double DOHC camshaft with VVT variable valve technology. This motor has a maximum capacity of 98 hp at 6,200 rpm and maximum torque of 128 Nm at 4,400 rpm. This is the spec of the best category in the current segment. The gearbox according to the vehicle is a CVT stepless variant, which comes with electric power steering and front drive system.
My first impression of driving as well as some other customers is that Fadil is a small car, but it feels quite good and agile. Throttle and gearboxes with little delay, especially stepless gearboxes seem to have been tweaked to limit the characteristic rubber band effect. Power steering for feedback from real road surfaces, control and response to handling is better than expected. Meanwhile the sound insulation is good, and the soundproofing is acceptable.
In particular, the element that Fadil's most appreciated Car is the quietest suspension system. Although the Fadil suspension configuration is still the same as other class A and B general cars with MacPherson suspension, the latter is torsion beam, but the way Fadil quenches vibrations when going through the potholes is very natural and pleasant. In the future, when we have more time to experience more thoroughly, we will continue to share with you about the advantages and disadvantages of Fadil.
As for the handover program, VinFast, the total number of Fadil vehicles they handed over in Hanoi, HCMC. Ho Chi Minh City and other agents across the country in this phase is 650 cars. In general, the event at the Independence Palace that I attended was organized, the areas clearly divided: receiving dossiers, guiding the use of vehicles, receiving vehicles and taking souvenir photos, signing cars, … here are a few other photos at the event.
After completing these procedures, the customers in turn wait to be named on stage to take souvenir photos and directly receive their vehicles. Alternating between the above areas are many Fadil cars waiting to be delivered by the new owner.
The vehicles had owners and waited for the turn to hand over the name tag
