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.
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!
