At the same time, HiPhi Y is equipped with front double wishbone suspension and rear five-link suspension. A chassis integrated control system uniformly deploys various actuators to achieve the best body control, while the active all-wheel-steering improves stability at high speeds and agility at low speeds.

Cabin technology features three infotainment screens, including a 17-inch OLED center display, 15-inch HD front passenger touch screen and 12.3-inch full LCD instrument screen. All models also receive a 22.9-inch HD color heads-up display and a 9.2-inch streaming media rearview mirror. Behind the front passenger touch screen is a HiPhi Box high-performance computer equipped with a Qualcomm 8250 chip, able to support media casting and Bluetooth connectivity for a keyboard and mouse.

HiPhi Y is also equipped with a Meridian Audio System, featuring up to 25 speakers throughout the car, including two speakers only for the driver. The maximum power output of the amplifier platform is 2,820W and the system has 7.1.4 surround sound.
