For our fellow Pinoy car nuts in the want for a more capable, yet very affordable compact car, the Cherry Fulwin is a welcome addition to our choices. Proving that being a Chinese-made car does not mean being sub-par, the Fulwin is targeted to compete with the very dominant Toyota Vios and the Hyundai Accent. The Fulwin’s ace is its price tag, starting at p699,000. That competitive pricing sits on top of a very stylishly sporty 5door hatchback form, capable of horading in plenty of oohs and aahs. Hop in, and take three friends or family members on a ride with standard leather seats, ample luggage space, and cool air conditioning system, accented by riding enjoyment courtesy of a standard radio/CD/MP3 audio system.
Under the hood is an equally-competitive 1.4L Inline 4-Cylinder 16-valve SOHC Electronic Multi-Point Fuel Injected petrol engine, mated to a 5-Speed MT which gives its front wheels 107 worth of power. Being a family car after all, the Fulwin possesses an impact-buffeting front/rear McPherson Strut/Longitudinal trailing-arm suspension system.
