Spy Shots: JAC doing the Nissan NV200 with Refine M3 MPV
Published on January 13, 2014 by W.E. Ning
The very first spy shot of the upcoming JAC Refine M3 MPV. The Refine M3 will be launched on the China car market in the second quarter of the year. Chinese media say the new M3 looks a tad too much like the Nissan NV200 MPV, and we agree. The fat chromed grille however is rather different.
The Nissan NV200 for comparison. It is made in China by the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture. Price starts at 105.800 yuan and ends at 131.800 yuan. Engine is a 1.6 with 115hp, mated to a 5-speed manual. Size: 4400/1695/1847, wheelbase is 2725. The NV200 is a popular car among local Chinese automakers, Gonow, BYD, and Yema are all preparing their own clones.
The JAC Refine M3 will be powered by a 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 113hp and 146nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. Price will start around 70.000 yuan.
