Published on November 22, 2012 by Tycho de Feyter
This is the new JAC Heyue A30, it debuted today at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China. The Heyue A30, formerly known as the JAC BII, is a mid-size sedan that will be launched on the Chinese car market in the first half of 2013, price will range from 50.000 yuan to 70.000 yuan.
Not a bad design for JAC, but boring like hell again, but that is what car buyers in this segment demand. Power comes from a 1.5 liter engine with 113hp and 146nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT.
Dash very neat for the money, detailing around the gear lever still needs some work. Nice big screen in the center console. These 50.000-70.000 sedans are still in high demand under some 900 million customers in the vast hinterlands of China, in the big cities however they are a very rare sight.
