Interior of the new budget crossover GM and SAIC: a mixture of “sports” and “high-tech”September 27, 2018
Judging by the fresh pictures, the “SUV” received three screens: one performs the role of “device” (the first completely virtual panel in the brand line), the second – the “floating” touch screen of the multimedia system, and below it is another display that is responsible for the climate installation. The crossover has a “truncated” steering wheel – a hint of “sport”. By the way, according to unofficial data, the model will go on sale under the name RS-5. The “steering wheel”, the front panel and the door cards have a two-tone color.
The Baojun CN210S crossover is built on a new platform with an independent rear suspension. In the future, this platform will form the basis of other crossovers, as well as compact brands of the brand. The front part of the new model is made in the style of crossovers Baojun 510 and Baojun 530, while the CN210S got even narrower optics. On the doors appeared embossed embossments, the rear LED lights are connected by an LED strip.
Contrary to expectations, the novelty was more compact Baojun 530 – the last cross it surpasses only in width. So, the length of the Baojun CN210S is 4570 mm, which is 85 mm less than in the Baojun 530. The width is 1870 mm (+35 mm), the height is 1720 mm (-40 mm), the wheelbase is 2700 mm (-50 mm).
A new crossover will be offered with a petrol turbo four 1.5 with a power of 150 hp. The same engine is equipped and Baojun 530 – this crossover motor is combined with a six-speed manual transmission or a robotic gearbox. It is not yet known whether there is a full drive for the CN210S (other Baojun crossovers, version 4 × 4, do not).
The timing of the premiere of the SUV has not yet been revealed, it is known only that the novelty will be released to the home market before the end of this year. It is not excluded that the model will be presented at the Auto Show in Guangzhou, which will open in November. Despite the more modest in comparison with the Baojun 530, the new cross will take the title of the flagship of the brand from the Baojun 530. The latest model today costs from 75,800 yuan. However, it is unlikely that the CN210S will be much more expensive, because Baojun was originally conceived as a budget brand for the Celestial Empire: the brand was created by the concerns of General Motors and SAIC in 2010, outside of China it is not represented.
