This is the JAC Refine A60 sedan for China
Published on January 27, 2016 by Joey Wang
This finally is the final production model of the JAC Refine A60 sedan, without the crazy grille and without any blue JAC badges. The JAC Refine A60 will be launched on the Chinese car market in April, price will start around 170.000 yuan and end around 240.000 yuan.
A sleek and sporty profile, and the wheels are not too small for once.
There will be two engines available: a 1.5 liter turbocharged petrol with with 174hp and 251nm, and a 2.0 turbo with 190hp and 280nm. Both engines will be mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed DCT.
Size: 4995/1865/1503, wheelbase is 2915.
The Refine A6 will be positioned above the JAC Heyue sedan. Price will start around 170.000 yuan and end around 240.000 yuan. It will compete with cars such as the Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GA5, Chery Arrizo 7, the Geely Emgrand EC8, and the Changan Raeton.
The interior looks all right, but the non-touch screen is far too small for 2016. The controller button is located on an elbow-twisting location on the center console. Seats are fine, flat with leather, but they seem very dirty.
The screen too is full of dust. Graphics look positively 2005 but they radio is funny, in a fuzzy way. Screen is flanked by a speaker on each side.
A JAC branded analogue clock with Roman numerals.
Fake wood is good. Electronic parking brake on the right-bottom and the start button on the right-top, an unusual location.
Rear looks very neat with loads of space and nice floor mats.
A luxurious arm rest with a whole arsenal of buttons controlling the stereo and the aircon.
A chrome strip connecting the lights is the trend of late 2015 and early 2016. JAC goes with the flow. Exhaust pipe tips are tiny but shiny.
Impressive grille with a large JAC logo.
Which car maker or dealer does dare to give such a dirty car to the media..? Horrible. The engine is normally hidden by a cover.
More shiny between the reflectors.
Refine A60 badge is not properly lined out. It is all about the details, and JAC fails.
