The Baojun 330 is based on the previous generation Chevrolet Sail, which was manufactured in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. The Sail has since been replaced by the new-ish Chevrolet Sail 3.

This particular example appears to be a pre-production car with a scratched bonnet and unpainted bumpers. The Baojun 330 will be the new entry-level sedan for the Baojun brand, and a hatchback version will follow in 2016.

The Baojun 330 will be powered by a 1.5 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 109hp, mated to a five-speed manual. The engine is also used in the Sail 3, but there it is mated to a six-speed manual. Size: 4300/1748/1500, wheelbase is 2520.

Baojun is an entry level brand under the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture, in which GM has a 43% stake. The other partners are SAIC (aka Shanghai Auto) and Wuling Automotive. SAIC and GM are tied up in the giant Shanghai-GM joint venture that makes Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac cars for the Chinese market.
