General Motors has recently announced the availability of a China-only model, called the Baojun 310, a strange name that initially may have suggested a low-end model.
The model has been planned alongside a joint venture created with SAIC and Wiling (SGMW) and is destined for the China market alone, the model mixing the “traditional styling” of the brand with a “youthful and modern appearance”. The appearance is also highlighted by the double-U-shaped front end, along with a large upper grille.
The Baojun 310 comes with four variants, with prices to start from RMB 36,800, the equivalent of $5,521 and going up to RMB 49,800, the American equivalent of $7,472, and comes with a wheelbase of 2,550 mm, and is said to be “the longest among hatchbacks in its class”.
Inside, the cargo space is set at 200 liters, but with the rear seats being folded down, the overall space can reach 1.000 liters.
The Baojun 310 is also coming with surprisingly interesting features inside, such as the high-res eight-inch LCS screen, GPS navigation onboard, Bluetooth, cruise control, ISOFIX child safety seat mountings, power sunroof, heated side mirrors, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution, rearview camera and more.
In the engine department, the China-spec model comes with a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated engine, developing 81 horsepower and 116 Nm of torque, with a combined fuel-consumption of 5.3L / 100 km.
