Spy Shots: FAW-Besturn X SUV testing in China

Published on May 30, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter

The FAW X Concept SUV debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show. In early May we heard the X will see production under FAW’s Besturn brand and today we have the very first pictures of the SUV testing around.

The X SUV will be listed in 2013, it might use a modified version of Volkswagens PQ35 platform that underpins, among others, the Volkswagen Tiguan and Golf Plus. The Tiguan has about the same size as the X.

FAW and Volkswagen have a joint venture in Changchun that makes various Volkswagens for the Chinese market. Engines might be from Volkswagen as well, or FAW’s Nissan-based 2.0 and 2.4, or all.

Car on pics loox quite ready, one wonders why FAW thinks it needs until 2013 to bring it to the market. Lines are a little toned down compared with the concept but not too much.
