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 production version of the Beijing Auto C60 will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April next year.
The C60 is design-wise based on the C60F concept that debuted on the 2012 Beijing Auto Show.
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.
Interior still need a bit of work. Sporty dials for sure, and space for a large flat screen.
