Published on September 5, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter

Beijing Auto has applied for patent on the C71, based on the old Saab 9-5. The design is definite, the C71 will debut at the April 2012 Beijing Auto Show. Design didn’t change much from the C71 concept that debuted at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show.

Beijing Auto bought the platforms for the old Saab 9-3 and 9-5 from GM in late 2009. They also bought the 2.0 turbo and 2.3 turbo engines. The C71 will be available with both. The 9-3 will be reborn as the Beijing Auto T60. The 2.0 turbo will also be used to power the BAW B40 SUV.
