The new Dongfeng Aeolus Yixuan Max model has already been launched in China.

The new Dongfeng Aeolus Yixuan Max sedan is the first model based on the DSMA (Dongfeng Superior Modular Architecture) platform, which is positioned as its own development, but is in fact a modified CMP architecture in China. At the same time, the DSMA platform already has a rear independent suspension and modern electronics, and in the future it will be adapted for hybrid powertrains and level 3 autopilot.

The size of the Aeolus Yixuan Max sedan is close to the European model Volkswagen Passat: the length is 4797 mm, the width is 1870 mm, the height is 1475 mm, and the wheelbase is 2770 mm. The car has 17-inch wheels, LED lighting technology, and the list of options includes a panoramic roof.

The interior of the new Dongfeng Aeolus Yixuan Max is distinguished by a climate control panel: a touch strip with built-in screens is located above the display of the media system and is located between the slots of the central ventilation deflectors. The media system itself has a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and the dashboard has a 12.3-inch screen. There are all-round cameras, as well as adaptive cruise control.
