The Baojun 310 is based on the Chevrolet Sail hatchback, which is manufactured in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. It will soon be replaced by the Sail 3 hatchback, just like the old Sail sedan has been replaced by the new-ish Chevrolet Sail 3 sedan.

Sporty design around the C-pillar.

Work still ongoing here. Modern dash without much of a screen, but maybe they will put it on top.

    A six speed gearbox in a 40.000 yuan car, that would be nice, sadly no Baojun has a six speed gearbox, not the 610 / 630, not the 730 mpv, not the upcoming 560 suv, not the upcoming 310 / 330. They are positioned in the low end of the market, there must be some difference, if you want a six speed from GM you’ll have to save extra for a Chevrolet.
