JAC Rein goes on the Cheap with 4×2 base model

Jianghuai Auto Corporation, JAC, became famous overnight with their interpretation of the Ford F150 pickup truck. That one however is not yet on the Chinese car market. This JAC Rein (aka JAC Eagle) has been on the market for a few years and to push sales up a bit JAC now comes with a cheapie-cheap base model.
Its price is only 79.800 yuan, about the same as a Suzuki Swift, and for that money you get a very basic 4×2 with an old 2.0 engine mated to a cranky five-speed manual, and that impressive grille for sure. The JAC Rein is based on the last-last-gen Hyundai Santa Fe and made under license by JAC under their own name.
