    After the static experience, we also briefly experienced the dynamic performance of the Tiggo 8L on internal roads. Let’s talk about our initial impressions. Firstly, in terms of the powertrain, due to the internal roads, the vehicle speed was kept below 30km/h. We mainly experienced the starting and shifting performance between gears 1-3. We have to say, the self-developed Fuzhen 8AT transmission left a very deep impression on me. The starting is smooth, and the shifting between the most difficult gears 1-3 is also very smooth, which is commendable.
