The best spy shots so far of the upcoming Beijing Auto C50E, a new medium sized sedan that will be launched on the China auto market next year. The C50E debuted in April on the Beijing Auto Show and is likely based on the platform of the old Hyundai Elantra that is still in production by the Beijing-Hyundai joint venture.
There will be two engines: 1.5 and 1.5 turbo, mated to a 5-speed manual or CVT. The base engine is Mitsubishi-sourced and also powers the Beijing Auto E-series, the turbocharged variant was developed by Beijing Auto. Price will range from 70.000 to 90.000 yuan, straight in one of the most competitive segments of the market.
