Spy Shots showing the JAC Refine S3 in the factory in China, indicating it is almost ready for the Chinese auto market. Sadly, it doesn’t have the interesting two-tone color scheme as the show car that debuted in April on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, but it does have the crazy grille. The JAC Refine S3 will be launched in July, but the exact date is yet unknown.

  1. The grille is quite different from the one we saw on the Heyue S30 crossover shown in 2013. That had an open mouthed fish appearance. This one I’m afraid is little improved.

  2. The grille looks like the newer Hyundai grilles, like the one on the 2015 Sonata. The body all the way back looks like the current Hyundai Tucson (iX35).
