Changan CS55 Luxe can be yours for PHP 1.310M
Recently, Changan Auto held a big brand launch under its new distributor, Inchcape Philippines. It was there that they announced their grand plans for the Philippine market, along with the launch of the all-new X7 Plus that's basically taking the place of the CS75 Plus in the lineup.
But while the event, and the new 7-seater SUV were the main talk of the town, there's a particular model and variant that has slipped under the radar, but is just as promising as Changan's newest offerings.
We're talking about the Changan CS55 Plus and its top-of-the-line variant called Luxe. It was launched last year by the brand's previous distributor, and we had a lot of good things to say about it when we took it on a drive to Baguio City.
The CS55 Plus Luxe came with all the bells and whistles. It had a full suite of ADAS features, a power tailgate, as well as a nicer-looking set of wheels than the Hype variant. However, back then its pricing got too close to the UNI-T crossover that came after it, which may have been one of the reasons why the former distributor of Changan stopped offering the top-spec Luxe.
But under its new distributor, Changan has found a way to bring back the CS55 Plus Luxe – and along with it is a lower SRP. Back when it was launched in 2022, the CS55 Plus Luxe had an introductory price of PHP 1.389 million; now it retails for PHP 1.310 million, and it appears to have not lost any of its impressive interior and exterior equipment.
This gives Changan a wider cushion in terms of pricing as the UNI-T crossover sells for PHP 1.679 million. Along with the CS55 Plus Luxe, the mid-spec Hype gets its own price slash as well. From PHP 1.348 million, the Hype variant can now be yours for PHP 1.279 million.
