Spy Shots: Beijing Auto C50E seen road testing in China

Beijing Auto says the C50E is based on their new M-trix platform, which is based on the platform of the old Saab 9-3.  The C70G is based on the platform of the old Saab 9-5. BAIC, the mother of Beijing Auto, bought both platforms from GM in 2009. The C50E will be powered by a 1.5 liter turbo with 170hp and 262nm.

Design is rather sporty with small windows,  a high waistline and a flat rear deck with an integrated spoiler. Wheels however need to be bigger.
