New spy shots of the upcoming FAW-Besturn X SUV, the very first SUV for the Besturn brand. The X SUV, likely with a different name, will be listed late this year or early 2013. It is based on the platform from the Mazda 6 made by the FAW-Mazda joint venture.

The FAW-Besturn X SUV debuted as the FAW X-concept at the Shanghai Auto Show in April. That was atypical concept car but the basic design of the real cars seems pretty much the same, and that is a good thing. Power comes from Mazda as well; 2.0 with 108kw and 183nm and a 2.3 with 120kw and 204nm, mated to a 6-speed manual or a new six-speed automatic.

    Have to ask: why do you call every dashboard Mazda 6-ish? This doesn’t like like the 6 at all and the same goes for other dashboard you’ve described. If you’re referring to the tunnels around the speedometer, you should know Alfa Romeo introduced them in the 156.
