After seeing spy shots of the car on two separate occasions, the production version of Baojun’s 560 SUV for China has been shown ahead of its official debut at the Shanghai Auto Show in April, Car News China reports.
Baojun serves as the SAIC-Wuling GM joint venture’s budget brand and currently offers the 630 sedan and 730 MPV models. The 560 will be the automaker’s first SUV when it officially enters its lineup later this year and will be powered by a 137 horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
The Baojun 560 arrives just as the compact SUV market in China is beginning to gain traction. Starting from 110,000 RMB ($17,561 USD) the 560 will undercut the smaller Buick Encore and the new Buick Excelle, appealing to customers on a tighter budget.
More details on the 560 should become available following its official debut in China’s largest city next month. In the meantime, head over to Car News China for additional photos of the surprisingly attractive 560.
