Re: GM to bring in Dzire/Etios challenger

Its official name is Baojun 630 sedan

The Baojun 630 will be powered by a 1.5 litre Roewe engine that produces 105 bhp of maximum power and 135 Nm of maximum torque. Roewe is owned by SAIC and Volkswagen is another of SAIC’s partners. The Roewe engine is expected to meet local as well as global (Euro IV) emission standards. GM in China has achieved a milestone recently by selling 1 million cars in a single year.

The title says that it will be in competition to the Etios and the Dzire.

It will be here by 2012-13

Heck, I am in love.

But the badge and build quality is a suspect.

HAHA nice one[clap].
I would rather trust the build quality of a chinese car than Indian. Today chinese cars are getting four star crash ratings..what are the indian cars getting?? The Mahindra scorpio gets 2 star, the Great Wall X240 has 4 stars.

Boy o Boy, Chevrolet is coming up with real beauties in respective segments these days! Be it Beat, Cruze or the awaited face lifted Aveo.

Re: GM to bring in Dzire/Etios challenger

The car definitely looks much beautiful than the Etios and Dzire!
I second this point [thumbsup]

But I have a solid doubt that it is here to compete with Dsire and Etios. Because it is far more beautiful and solid looking car.

I request to re-check the probable challenge; because it would be Linea, Vento, City or thereabout.

Re: GM to bring in Dzire/Etios challenger

How long I have been waiting for a reasonably priced entry-level sedan in India which is not a booted version of hatchback counterpart and has the looks according to my preference. Etios was the one I had some expectations with, but nope. Now ultimately with rumors floating about Baojun 630 launch, my dream appears to be coming true. Yet, cannot say whether it will fall in the said price band after looking at the comparatively bigger design but if this does happens, General Motors will have a win-win situation in their hand. Just check out the rear side profile, tail lamps match somewhat with previous generation BMW 5-Series. I like it!

Drive Safe,

This car is really stunning! If this comes in the price bracket being discussed here, it will be a dream come true for many. But looking at the size of this sedan, it is difficult to believe. [confused]
