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.

Remember with Wuling Hong Guang previewed back on GIIAS 2016? beside sthe HOng Guang, PT SGMW (SAIC-GM-Wuling) displays the Baojun 730, a MPV who slightly look similar as the Hong Guang, but basically is a different model. In its country, the Baojun 730 has been facelifted with several imporvement who could make family MPV in Indonesia felt too expensive. From the looks, we do like how Baojun bring the headlights with projector lens inside and a possibility it apply a HID. The LED DRL remains to be positioned near the fog lamp, and along with the good looking headlights, the tail lamp now came with a better looking LED. A new alloy wheels, and plastic cladding at the lower body side, a good recipe to make those boxy tall body to look more attractive. Other attractive things found in the new Baojun 730 facelift is how the makers manage to design the interior. AT the instrument panel, you could find a full color LCD display screen to display several information, and for the dashboard design, Baojun 730 create itself to look special, with details taken from premium cars, such as analog watch between the AC vent who looks like Mercedes-Benz. The head unit of Baojun 730 has apply a floating design, who also looks similar as Mercedes Benz. While the digital AC turn knob looks lie Audi, who apply the temperature display at the middle. The rest of it, indeed it is a well equipped MPV, as it equipped with stability control, tyre pressure monitoring system, cruise control, electronic parking brake, keyless entry & start, sunroof, leather seats, power outlet, etc. The boxy appearance surely guarantee the space for the passenger and cargo, as due to Wuling didn’t release any complete information, we think it remains to apply the 1.8 liter 4 cylinder non turbo mated with an AT gearbox with manual mode. Speaking of the local model, the local Wuling Indonesia model will be introduced on this year, so shall we see the Baojun, or the facelift version of Hong Guang this year? we shall see.

The very first photos of the WEY VV7, formerly known as the WEY 01. The VV7 will be launched on the Chinese car market later this month. Somewhat confusingly the white car on the photos appears to be the sportier S model (compare with base model) with a racy bumpers and four big exhaust pipes, but it doesn’t have the S badge on the back. In anyway, we expect WEY to confuse us a many times more. WEY is a new “premium SUV” brand under Great Wall Motors. After the VV7 they will launch the car currently known as the WEY 02, a similar looking but smaller SUV. The VV7 has become quite a good looking car, and we especially like the shape of the wheel arches. Very classy. The interior is a masterpiece in simplicity. Many Chinese automakers love to add as much buttons and panels as possibly possible, but Great Wall is showing great restraint here. The materials are top notch. The steering wheel and seats looks luxurious. Perforated pedals seem to be made of metal. Three air vents on the ultra clean center stack. The only thing that isn’t so good is the relatively small touch screen. Power for the VV7 (S and not-S) comes from a 2.0 turbo with 234hp and 360nm, it is mated to a 7-speed DCT sending horses to all four wheels. WEY logo on the engine cover. there’s a lot of influence from Maserati, Jaguar and even Peugeot in this WEY VV7 crossover soon to hit the Chinese market, but it’s really not bad. It has an aggressive Levante-esque front end, purposeful side profile and smart rear lights similar to those of the latest Peugeot 3008.

The Dongfeng Fengguang 580 SUV / DFSK Glory 580 CVT SUV has been launched on the Beijing Auto Show in China, looking sweet in blue showing off its shiny shiny grille. The Fengguang 580 is a new compact SUV, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in June, and price will range from 90.000 to 150.000 yuan. The Fengguang 580 will be powered by a 1.5 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 150hp, mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Size: 4680/1845/1715, and wheelbase is 2780. Dongfeng will offer a five-seat and a seven-seat version. Price will range from 90.000 to 150.000 yuan. The Fengguang 580 is manufactured by Dongfeng Xiaokang, a commercial-vehicle division under Dongfeng Motor that makes a range of mini vans, mini MPV’s, and small trucks. The Fengguang 580 is their first true passenger-car SUV. The interior looks great for the segment, but it is possibly a tad too gray. This car too is aimed at young car buyers, and they do like a bit more color. The touch screen is large and the infotainment system comes with comes with full smartphone integration, USB and HDMI connectivity, satellite navigation, a wifi hot spot, and permanent 4G internet. The name for the engine series is ‘EuroDriver’. That names reminds us of the early 00’s. Everything car-related was ‘euro’ then, the Chinese thought that sounded modern and high tech-ish. It is very rare to see that kind of a name today, with all the mess in Europe, but Dongfeng does it. Security man kept a close eye on my movements. They had a security man at every car. The security man didn’t know about the car. For questions I had to go to the information men. One of those can be seen in the background, wearing a big blue badge around his neck, working his phone. I didn’t dare to disturb him, and anyway, I didn’t really have questions.
