New spy shots of the upcoming Besturn MPV, showing the people carrier will get a giant grille-to-impress. The yet nameless MPV will hit the China car market in 2014, it will be based on the Mazda 8 MPV that is made in China by the FAW-Mazda joint venture. Besturn is a brand of First Auto Works (FAW).
The FAW-Mazda 8 MPV. Price starts at 219.800 yuan and ends at 249.800 yuan. Engines: 163hp 2.5. The Besturn MPV will most likely get the same engine and the new FAW-developed 183hp 1.8 turbo that will also power the facelifted Besturn B90. Price for the Besturn MPV will range from around 150.000 yuan to 200.000 yuan.

That roof line is so creative.
