The brand new Baojun 560 SUV will be launched on the Chinese car market in July. Price will range from 80.000 to 100.000 yuan, positioning the Baojun 560 in one of the most competitive segments of the market.
Baojun is an entry level brand under the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture, in which GM has a 43% stake. The other partners are SAIC (aka Shanghai Auto) and Wuling Automotive. SAIC and GM are tied up in the giant Shanghai-GM joint venture that makes Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac cars for the Chinese market.
Drab dash dressed up with some green, drab seats and doors with some red. Square touch screen is huge. The Baojun 560 will be powered by a 1.8 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 137hp and 186nm, mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, sending power to the front wheels only.
Enough space for three, and more red again.
Rear lights are unfashionable big. Skid pad with a tiny tail pipe peeping out. Subtle roof wing for sporty.
