The very first spy shot of the upcoming JAC Refine M3 MPV. The Refine M3 will be launched on the China car market in the second quarter of the year. Chinese media say the new M3 looks a tad too much like the Nissan NV200 MPV, and we agree. The fat chromed grille however is rather different.

The Nissan NV200 for comparison. It is made in China by the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture. Price starts at 105.800 yuan and ends at 131.800 yuan. Engine is a 1.6 with 115hp, mated to a 5-speed manual. Size: 4400/1695/1847, wheelbase is 2725. The NV200 is a popular car among local Chinese automakers, GonowBYD, and Yema are all preparing their own clones.

The JAC Refine M3 will be powered by a 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 113hp and 146nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. Price will start around 70.000 yuan.

    JAC has quite a line up of vans, from the Heyue J6, Rein, Refine II and Refine IV, M6, all the way up to the big Sunray. And they are heavily weighted on the larger size, as compared to say the SGM Wuling vans. This one included.
    Small engines not withstanding, they offer some potential for the coming Camper/RV craze.

    When compared to the ‘London taxi 2014’ version of the NV200 http://www.inautonews.com/nissan-nv200-london-taxi-introduced/nissan-nv200-london-taxi-10-2 , that JAC is positively beautiful – even with the disguise !!
