General Motors, together with the Chinese SAIC, is ready to offer Baojun RM-5 cross-country cross-country motorists. The novelty will appear on sale in October, while local dealers receive the first salable cars.

The Baojun RM-5 off-road compact van was unveiled at the September Chengdu Motor Show. Then it became known that this model very soon will receive global status and will be released under the Chevrolet brand. The cross-platform was based on the advanced modular platform R. Such a car, whose length reaches 4,705 mm with a wheelbase of 2,750 mm, receives ground clearance that has grown to 180 mm, a branded radiator grille, two-level optics and a protective plastic body kit. In the cabin Baojun RM-5 there was a place for multimedia with a touchscreen and voice control function, digital dashboard, a stylish steering wheel, etc.

Salon new items can be designed for five, six or seven seats. The top crossover receives adaptive cruise control, video surveillance cameras, as well as a rich list of driver assistants.

 The Baojun RM-5 is powered by a one and a half liter petrol turbo four with a capacity of 147 horsepower. A pair of it is either a six-speed manual or a CVT. But the drive is exclusively front-wheel drive, which is consistent with the needs of Chinese motorists. In China, all-wheel drive cars are not in special demand. Novelty prices range from 85,800 to 120,800 yuan.

Meanwhile, the dealership in China got a coupe-like analogue of the Nissan Qashqai. This is a restyled Venucia T90, based on the “cart” of the elongated Nissan Qashqai + 2 of the previous generation.
