Chinese cars are really catching on in the UAE. They're getting popular because they offer better features, design, and performance compared to cars from other countries. We recently got our hands on the ROX 01 plug-in hybrid SUV to see what all the buzz is about.

ROX 01 Overview

ROX Motor introduced the 01 last year. It was a hit, thanks to its plug-in hybrid powertrain and off-road capabilities, all wrapped up in a unique design and tech-packed cabin. You can find the ROX 01 for sale in the UAE at Future Trans Motors.

Exterior Design

The ROX 01 is bold and futuristic with a hint of ruggedness. The LED headlights have a sharp DRL signature, giving it a sleek look. A prominent shoulder line runs from front to rear, giving the SUV a muscular stance.

It rides on 21-inch alloy wheels that are perfect for off-road adventures. The taillights match the headlights, running horizontally across the back with a sharp LED design. The overall boxy silhouette is balanced with a modern touch.

Interior Design

Inside, the boxy design means lots of space and headroom across all three rows. The cabin feels luxurious with high-quality materials and the latest tech. A panoramic sunroof and ambient lighting add a soothing vibe.

The leather upholstery, in a dual-tone black and tan, enhances the interior's look and feel. The ROX 01 offers both 6 and 7-seat configurations, with an unusual extra seat in the third row instead of the second.

Hybrid Engine & Transmission

The ROX 01 uses a 1.5L four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine paired with two electric motors and a 56kWh battery pack. The whole setup is managed by an eCVT gearbox. Interestingly, the engine doesn't drive the wheels directly; it generates power for the motors and battery.

Driving Impressions

The hybrid powertrain might sound complex, but it drives smoothly like any other hybrid SUV. The electric motors provide instant power, making the performance impressive, especially for a three-row SUV.

It features variable damping suspension, making rough roads feel smoother. The steering can feel light at times, leaving you wanting more feedback, but remember, it's a large SUV with a heavy hybrid powertrain.

Review Verdict

The ROX 01 is perfect for today and ready for the future. Its hybrid powertrain offers efficiency, the tech-loaded cabin makes traveling easy, and the value is unbeatable.
