More power with lower fuel consumption is achieved through the 2.8L turbocharged common rail Euro 4 engine. It works with a 5-speed manual transmission. Other features include non-independent 4 leaf-spring suspension that makes the Co-Star more comfortable to drive with. It is also suitable for carrying a large passenger load while travelling on uneven road conditions. Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) assist the driver while braking and driving around corners, making it safer to drive down long and curvy slopes. The Strengthened Body Frame with Closed Loop Structure allows it to be very resistant to torsional forces and deformation when it flips over, effectively increasing passenger safety. Furthermore, it has cathodic electrodeposition coating, giving it good corrosion resistance that could last for as long as 10 years.
According to China Auto Manufacturers (M) Sdn Bhd (CAM), the sales and marketing arm of light commercial vehicles under Sendok Group, the Co-Star’s spare-parts are highly Interchangeable and accessible, especially for key parts like the engine and gearbox, making its maintenance, servicing and repair costs relatively low and economical. It is seen as best suited to be a luxury tourist bus and business reception vehicle, and could be customised to be a school bus, factory worker bus, and more.
CAM has more than 60 service centres and stockists in Malaysia to cater for its customer needs. To provide its customers peace of mind, CAM vehicles come with 3 years/100,000km warranty, free towing service during the warranty period and 24/7 breakdown support.
