What engine? How does it ride?
Turbo engine 1.6 with a capacity of 186 hp and a dual-clutch robot is the only possible combination on our market, although many would prefer a simpler naturally aspirated 2.2 engine.
Similar in size Kodiaq with a 180-horsepower turbo engine from the heart presses into a chair. The Exeed TXL doesn’t feel like a gun, though it does 0-100 km/h in ten seconds.

Part of the dynamics is stolen by a phlegmatic robot. But the main problem is being overweight. In running order (taking into account the weight of the driver) TXL weighs 1800 kg (similar to Kodiaq – 1695 kg). But the total weight is 2100 kg. Formally, only 300 kg can be loaded in Exeed – that is, four passengers 75 kg each without luggage!
Extra pounds, setting up the power unit, selecting the gear ratio of the transmission affect fuel consumption (10 liters on the highway and 15-16 in the city), and the 55-liter tank runs out quickly.
In terms of handling, Exeed can be put on a par with such calm cars as the Nissan X‑Trail or Mitsubishi Outlander, but no more. In sharp turns and during active rebuilding, the body rolls heavily and walks relative to the suspension.
Handling and off-road performance
Without fail, you should also pay attention to the driving performance of the CheryExeed TXL 2022 crossover. This model boasts good handling. The car confidently holds the road, differs in maneuverability, and besides, obediently reacts to the steering wheel without any delays. As for off-road performance, it is impossible to say unequivocally whether it is worth choosing this model or not. This car is a standard universal vehicle that is optimally suited for all occasions of a motorist. However, this is not a full-fledged SUV, and the crossover will not be able to cross certain obstacles. That is why you should not thoughtlessly get out off-road without outside help, since in some situations all-wheel drive and a clearance of 210 mm will not be enough, given the car’s impressive wheelbase and weight. At the same time, it is worth paying tribute to the suspension system, which turned out to be unpretentious and reliable. With careful operation of the car, it will be possible to completely forget about the repair of the chassis for long tens of thousands of kilometers.
Most of all, this Chinese crossover attracts attention due to its appearance. At first glance, it may seem that there is a luxurious and expensive premium car in front of the motorist. However, as soon as the speech affects the price of the car, it becomes obvious that the cross is more in line with the budget segment. If we consider the cross along the perimeter, then the feed, as well as the front part, deserve special attention. Behind are spectacular LED lights, emphasizing the status of “Chinese”. The front side received an impressive design with a massive radiator grille, as well as sporty narrow optics. This design gives the model some aggression and bold outlines. The completeness of the picture is complemented by a stylish inscription of the CheryExeed brand.
If you pay attention to the interior of the car, then it will not be possible to highlight something special here that could not be found among classmates. The quality of the arrangement is top notch. Only high-quality and expensive materials are used inside. The car received numerous decorative elements, as well as high-tech options. In addition, the practicality and proper placement of the main controls are clearly visible here. This once again captivates car enthusiasts who are interested in buying a spectacular five-seater cross with many features focused on comfort and safety.
