The very first photos of the all-new Beijing Auto Huansu H3 MPV for China. The Huansu S3 will be launched on the Chinese car market in late Q4, set to compete with the successful Baojun 730. It will be positioned above the upcoming Huansu mini MPV and below the upcoming Huansu H6 MPV.
Wheels look incredible small for a vehicle of this size. Chinese automakers tend to fit small sized tires on their cars in a bid to keep fuel consumption down, ignoring dangers to handling, stability, and to the eye.
The Huansu H3 will be available with two engines: a 1.5 with 113hp and 150nm or a 1.8 with 140hp and 180nm, both mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic, sending power to the front wheels.
Size: 4660/1770/1780, wheelbase yet unknown.
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’.
Design a but busy but definitely not unattractive. Chrome bars under the front lights are interesting. Roof rails seem fully functional.
