This is the new Beijing Auto Huansu S6 SUV, seen here at a product presentation for dealers and still officially secret. The Huansu S6 will be launched on the Chinese car market in the second half of the year. Price will start somewhere around 100.000 yuan. The vehicle seems ready enough, featuring a sporty look with a heavily chromed grille.
A very black dashboard with basic dials, a mid-sized LCD screen, an a nice looking wooden strip incorporating a small control panel on the left side.
Huansu is a new sub brand under Beijing Auto. The S6 will be their third car after the Huansu S2 and Huansu S3. The Huansu series are manufactured by Beiqi Yinxiang Automobile, a joint venture between the Beijing Auto (Beiqi) and the Yinxiang Motorcycle Group. Huansu means ‘Magic Speed’.
The Huansu S6 will be available with two four-cylinder petrol engines: a 1.5 turbo with 150hp and 215nm, and a 2.0 turbo with 201 hp and 290nm, both mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Size: 4688/1839/1683mm, wheelbase is 2700.
The Beijing Auto Huansu S6 is very similar to the upcoming Beijing Auto Senova X65. It is about the same size, the same price, and will be powered by the same engines. It seems likely that the S6 and X65 are based on the same platform. Size X65: 4654/1816/1680mm, wheelbase is 2670.
Dual tone seats are fast becoming a new trend among Chinese automakers. Beijing Auto will joint the party. Note funky door.
