Eight months after its debut on the market, the range of DR 5.0, the progenitor SUV of the new era of models with the DR brand (the company from Isernia, Molise, which imports car components – assembling them under license – produced by the Chinese car manufacturers Chery Automobile and JAC Motors and markets them, rebranded with the DR logo in its Italian offices), is enriched with the long-awaited turbo petrol version with automatic transmission.
New Dr 5.0, the photographs
The new urban SUV from DR powered by the same engine as the DR F35. It is a 154 hp 1.5 turbo with a maximum torque of 210 Nm at 3600 rpm and a maximum speed of 185 km / h. The six-speed automatic transmission with dry double clutch. But the new DR 5.0 Turbo DCT, in addition to the engine and transmission, has a series of upgrades compared to the naturally aspirated version. Not so much from an aesthetic point of view. The design is in fact identical while presenting new chromatic finishes. The already very rich standard equipment of the aspirated version with manual gearbox is further enriched with: – possibility to choose between the ECO and SPORT driving modes; – large panoramic roof, 1018 mm long and 784 mm wide, with electric opening and closing of the sun visor; – intelligent headlight system with automatic ignition, delayed shutdown with the follow me home function and vehicle location by remotely switching on the headlights themselves; – 6 loudspeakers, four of which are front and two are rear.
But the biggest upgrade, the DR 5.0 Turbo he saw it in terms of security. EPB and Auto Hold replace the manual parking brake. 2 curtain airbags are added to the 4 (2 front and 2 side) of the aspirated version. The semi-independent rear suspension with torsion bar gives way to independent multi-links. A new chassis calibration makes the 5.0 Turbo more solid and stable than its naturally aspirated sister with manual gearbox. In full compliance with DR Automobiles Groupe’s eco-friendly philosophy, this latest SUV is also available with bi-modal, petrol / LPG fueling, with a surcharge of € 1,000.00 over the price list of € 21,900 of the only standard full optional version. There is the possibility to customize it with a WR color pack which includes the roof in glossy black and the uprights in a color of your choice, glossy or opaque, between two shades of gray, black, white or red (+ € 500).
