First Auto Works, or FAW, is working on an SUV for its Besturn brand. It debuted as the FAW X-concept at the Shanghai Auto Show in April. Just like all Besturns it will be based on a Mazda-platform, the SUV will be based on the new Mazda 6 that is made in China by the FAW-Mazda joint venture.
The engines will come from Mazda as well, they will be the same as in the Besturn B70 sedan: a 2.0 with 108kw and 183nm and a 2.3 with 120kw and 204nm, mated to a 6-speed manual or the new six-speed automatic. The Besturn X SUV is expected to hit the market in 2013.
Clearly the Mazda 6 inside.
