The new JAC Heyue A30 sedan will be launched on the Chinese car market on May 28, priced from 60.000 to 80.000 yuan. The JAC Heyue A30, formerly known as JAC BII, will be positioned just above the new JAC Heyue A20.
Power will come from a 1.5 liter engine with 113hp and 146nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. A 1.8 might become available as well, but the 1.5 will be alone at launch. Many Chinese car buyers still prefer a big engine, even when it delivers the same or even less power than a smaller engine. Automakers are thus forced to keep older-big engines in the line-up.
Interior not that bad for such a cheap car. Small screen in the center console. Automatic gearbox in this car. The market for cheap ‘n small sedans is still growing in China, especially among first-car buyers in second and third tier cities.
The wheels look out of place on the car, and as per usual far too small.
The interior plastics are still not good enough, but have improved massively.
Overall a reasonable effort from JAC but they are still two or three years away from being ready for a serious push globally.
