Pesaing Calya - Sigra Dari Wuling, Lebih Murah Dari Confero
This is the new Baojun 530 SUV, it will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and launch on the Chinese car market in Q1 2018. The Baojun 530 is a mid-size 5-seat SUV that will be positioned above the Baojun 510. The front look super sharp with razor-like lights and a lot of shine. The rear looks a bit messy, too many lines and the lights are unpretty. The pipe tips are located ultra low in the bumper. The red strip connecting the reverse lights is kinda hip. Engines: a 1.8 with 135 hp and a 1.5 turbo with 150 hp. Size: 4655/1835/1760, and wheelbase is 2750. Price os the Baijun 530 will start around 85,000 yuan or $12,000. 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 also tied up in the giant Shanghai-GM joint venture that makes Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac cars for the Chinese market.
Roewe has released the first images of the RX8, the brand’s new flagship SUV. The Roewe RX8 will debut in April on the Beijing Auto Show and launch on the Chinese car market soon thereafter. The RX8 is based on a slightly shortened variant of the platform that also underpins the Maxus D90 SUV. Roewe and Maxus are both subsidiaries of SAIC. The RX8 and the D90 share their engine as well: a 2.0 turbo petrol with 224 hp, mated to a six-speed automatic. Size: 4923/1930/1810, and wheelbase is 2850. Price will start around 180,000 yuan or $27,800. The RX8 will be positioned above the upcoming RX7/Marvel X SUV. The Roewe RX8 is a good looking car, just like all recent new Roewe’s. It is modern yet classic, big but it doesn’t look huge. Naturally the RX8 won’t be Roewe’s flagship forever, the brand is already working on an even bigger RX9.
This is the all new Baojun 530 SUV for China, the most daring looking Baojun so far. It will be launched on the Chinese car market on June 16. Bojun is an entry level brand under the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture, in which General Motors has a 43% stake. The other partners are SAIC (aka Shanghai Auto) and Wuling Automotive. SAIC and GM are also tied up in the giant Shanghai-GM joint venture that makes Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac cars for the Chinese market. The Baojun 530 is a 5-seat SUV that will be positioned above the exiting Baojun 510. It will be the new flagship of the Baojun lineup. Price will range from 78.800 yuan to 119.800 yuan. The Baojun 530 will be available with two engines: a 150 hp 1.5 turbo mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed DCT, and a 137 hp 1.8 mated to a 5-speed automated-manual. Power goes to the front wheels. It is a good looking thing, certainly the wildest SUV in its segment. The Baojun is mostly aimed at second and third tier cities where consumers tend to be more conservative than in the mega cities. Let’s see whether this folk digs this new Baojun. Baojun means ‘Treasure Horse’, hence the horse head logo.
This little blue beauty is the new Wuling Hongguang S3, a small SUV for China. It is the first SUV under the Wuling brand, aimed at the low end of the market. Price starts at 59,800 yuan and ends at 84,800 yuan ($9012 – 12,778). Design is nice with a sporty shape, black arches, black B/C/D pillars, a shiny strip under the windows, and shiny roof rails. Wuling is a brand brand under the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture (SGMW). in which GM has a 43% stake. The other partners are SAIC (aka Shanghai Auto) and Wuling Automotive. SAIC and GM are also tied up in the giant Shanghai-GM joint venture that makes Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac cars for the Chinese market. Wheels look very small for such a relatively tall and narrow vehicle. Better watch out when the big winds are a coming. The Hongguang S3 is available with two four cylinder petrol engines: a 112 hp 1.5 and a 150 hp 1.5 turbo, both mated to a six-speed manual ‘box. There is no automatic or CVT, and that will seriously hamper sales. It is a bit odd, as most comparable cars by Wuling’s competitors are available with an automatic. Wuling’s interior quality has vastly improved over the last five years or so, and it shows again here. Colors and materials are nice, but the steering wheel looks a bit old fashioned. S3 badge in red. We strongly support the use of red letters and badges on turbocharged cars. We believe that red is cool, and adds to the experience of driving and or owning a turbocharged vehicle. The S3 is available with and without a turbo. Sadly, we have to report that the S3 badge is red on both. Bad Wuling!
