New spy shots showing the Beijing Auto C60 testing in China. The C60 will be launched on the China car market in the second half of 2014 under the Shenbao/Senova brand, it will be positioned between the upcoming C50E/A150 and the Shenbao D-Series that was launched in May.
The Beijing Auto C60 is based on the old Saab 9-3. Beijing Auto bought the rights to the Saab 9-3 and Saab 9-5 from GM in 2009, they also bought the rights to the Saab 2.0 turbo and 2.3 turbo. The C60 will be powered by the 2.0 turbo which will deliver around 204hp. A 180hp 1.8 turbo, developed by Beijing Auto, will most likely become available as well.
Saab DNA still very visible at the C-pillar.
First good shot of the interior. Sporty dials, space for a huge screen, and an automatic gearbox.
