New BYD F3

This is the new BYD F3 ‘Su Rui’, it debuted at the Beijing Auto Show. The F3 has been BYD’s best-seller for many years and it even topped China’s car sales chart for a couple of months in 2010. The new F3 is design-wise slightly better than the old BYD F3 which was a copy of the old Toyota Corolla, the new F3 is a copy of the new Corolla but slightly less obvious. For BYD, we call that a huge improvement!

The F3 Su Rui, meaning ‘quick (and) sharp’, stands on a new platform and comes with a new 1.5 turbo ‘TID’ engine mated to a 6-speed DCT, a older and cheaper 1.8 will be available as well. The new F3 will be listed on the China car market in June, price will start around 100.000 yuan. Size: 4680/1765/2660, wheelbase is 2660. BYD has high hopes for the new F3 and the company can use some success, things haven’t been going exactly well lately…
