General Motors released a large liftback crossover specifically for ChinaAugust 30, 2019
The largest American automobile corporation, General Motors, has developed a new model for China, called the Baojun RC-6 Cross. Baojun is a General Motors venture jointly with the Chinese company SAIC. This brand produces budget cars for the Chinese market. They often use technical equipment from GM.
In the photo you can see the new Baojun model – RC-6 Cross. The car from Baojun is much longer and larger than the French model. The length is 4925 mm, the width is within 1880 mm, and the height reaches 1580 mm, it is also worth noting the size of the wheelbase – 2800 mm.
Exterior design looks very nice. The car has a pronounced hood and front bumper, which will attract a lot of attention and eyes of passers-by. All optics are made on LEDs.
Looking into the cabin, you can immediately notice the horizontal digital display, combining the dashboard and multimedia system – now it is gaining momentum in the automotive industry. The interior is finished with genuine leather and Alcantara.
It is also worth noting that the car has many useful options, for example cruise control with keeping the car in a lane.
Under the hood of a budget Chinese car, a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine will be installed, delivering 147 horsepower. Customers are also given the choice between a six-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable variator. The drive is front-mounted, however, the high ground clearance of the car (191 mm) should compensate for the nuance in overcoming difficult obstacles.
The new model will be positioned as the flagship of the company’s lineup, which has in its arsenal four crossovers, two minivans, two cars, as well as one electric car.
