The updated Beijing BJ80 SUV, which is called the budget “copy” of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, enters the market. Chinese car dealerships have already begun to accept the first commercial vehicles.

BAIC has updated its Beijing BJ80 SUV, reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class that is familiar to motorists around the world. After restyling, the budget analogue of Gelandewagen received a two-tone body paint, spectacular bumper covers, chrome moldings, a silver “spare” casing, a brutal off-road body kit, and also grown wheel arch extensions. In the “plus” at 85 mm, the width of the model has also gone.

Red brake calipers and large 20-inch wheels complement the image of the restyled Beijing BJ80.

 Under the hood of an all-wheel drive Chinese SUV, there is a 2.3-liter 250-horsepower turbo engine that works with 6-speed automatic gearbox. The arsenal of such a car includes advanced multimedia that understands voice commands, a premium audio system with eight speakers and a subwoofer, as well as all-round cameras and much more. According to preliminary data, the new product was rated at 298,000 – 328,000 yuan. In comparison, the German G-Class in China costs between 1,329,000 yuan.

Recall that previously, GM, along with SAIC-Wuling, presented an updated analogue of the Chevrolet Captiva 2020. This is a new modification of the Baojun 530 crossover.
