The first photos of the facelifted Baojun 630 sedan for China, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in the first quarter of 2016. The facelift includes new headlights, a new grille, new bumpers, new taillights, and an updated interior.
The current Baojun 630, it was launched in August 2011 and hasn’t been facelifted ever since, and thus it is in dire need for an update. Price starts at 57.800 yuan and ends at 85.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.5 petrol with 112hp, mated to a five-speed manual or a six speed automatic.
The engine will continue in the facelifted 630 and price range will be about the same.
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.
A completely new dash with a large touch screen on top. Another display between the dials, and a fancy clock between the air vents.
The new rear. New lights, new chrome strip connecting lights, license plate area moved from the bumper to the boot lid, brand badge moved from the right to the left, Baojun 630 badge moved from top-left to bottom-right. All in all a lot of new, bot oddly Baojun didn’t bother to change the ugly exhaust pipe integration. The pipe still hangs in nowhere under the bumper with a far too visible muffler.
Current. Check pipe. The horror.
