The BAIC brand began its journey in our Vast with the U5 Plus sedan and the X35 crossover: both models were promised to the Russians at a price of 1.7 million rubles. But in order to get a four-door “right here and now”, the buyer will have to pay 130,000 rubles more to the cash desk of the official dealer, Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports. And all because so far, apparently, only those cars that can boast of the richest equipment, that is, the Luxury version, go to car dealerships.
What kind of equipment are we talking about? The older equipment includes eco-leather seat trim, a digital dashboard, 16-inch wheels, a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, heated and electric side mirrors, air conditioning, a multimedia complex with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, as well as ABS, ESP, and an assistant with hill starting and two airbags.
As for the power units, the buyer can count on a 1.5-liter engine with 113 hp. With. and 142 Nm of torque, five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. In the front suspension of a budget sedan by today’s standards – McPherson, in the rear – a semi-independent beam. Wheelbase – 2670 mm, ground clearance – 155 mm.
Recall, as the AvtoVzglyad portal wrote earlier, in the foreseeable future, the BAIC lineup in Russia will also be replenished with medium-sized X7 and X55 crossovers, BJ40 and BJ60 SUVs. In addition, we will be offered several electric vehicles. One of them will be a car based on the U5 Plus sedan.
