A very flashy Peugeot 308 CC, Spotted in China in the great city of Chongqing by Reader Colin, thank you for the pictures! The good Peug is wrapped in an eye slaughtering shiny green wrap, with the convertible roof and mirrors wrapped in silver gray, and further dressed up with a fake ram scoop, black windows, and extra large tires and shiny gray multispoke alloys.

The fun continues at the back with a giant DTM-style wing, a very low rear bumper with a diffuser, a single exhaust pipe on the left, and red darkened taillight covers. Chrome strip under the windows goes just fine with the silver gray roof, surrounding the black windows which are contrasting nicely with shiny green body, door handles included.

Wing will mainly cause extra drag for the front wheels to pull. Base engine is a rather tiny 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol with 160hp, but we bet this particular car has a few horses more. The Peugeot 308 CC is imported into China, price starts at 304.800 yuan and ends at 338.800 yuan. We don’t see it on the road very often: happy alloys, and police.

That’s a mouse hanging around under the bumper, she better watch out for the hot air coming.

New spy shots of the Beijing Auto B70 testing in China. The Beijing Auto B70 is the four-door variant of the Beijing Auto BJ40, scheduled for debut in the first half of 2015.

The B70 debuted as a concept on the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show, and the last time we saw it was on the 2012 Beijing Auto Show where it was called ‘B70V’. Later on we heard it would be called ‘BJ70′, but new reports in Chinese automotive media indicate Beijing Auto will go for a simple  ‘BJ40 4-door’.

beijing-auto-b70-china-1-2

The B70/BJ20 4-door will be powered by the same engine as the B40; a 2.4 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 143hp and 217nm, sending power to all four wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. Price will start around 170.000 yuan and end around 210.000 yuan.

This is the Chery Arrizo 3 for the China car markethttp://www.carnewschina.com/2014/10/30/this-is-the-chery-arrizo-3-for-the-china-car-market/ http://www.carnewschina.com/2014/10/30/this-is-the-chery-arrizo-3-for-the-china-car-market/#comments Thu, 30 Oct 2014 01:41:32 +0000 http://www.carnewschina.com/?p=59725 This is the Chery Arrizo 3 for the China car market

This is the new Chery Arrizo 3, looking sleek and sporty in white. The Chery Arrizo 3 is a new compact sedan scheduled for debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November with a launch on the Chinese auto market just before the end of this year. Price will start around 60.000 yuan and end around 80.000 yuan.

Dash with sporty dials and a large screen on the center console. Yellow floor mats look comfortable.

The Arrizo 3 is powered by a new 1.5 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with an output of Power comes from a 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 122hp and 140nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT.

Size: 4458/1755/1493mm, wheelbase is 2572mm.

chery-arrizo-3-china-1b

The Chery Arrizo 3 is the second car under the new Arrizo sub brand, the first was the Chery Arrizo 7 that was launched in July last year and the Arrizo 5 sedan is on the way. But much more lies in the future: an entry-level sedan called ‘Arrizo 1′, a bunch of hatchbacks called Arrizo 2, Arrizo 4, and Arrizo 6. Then an MPV called Arrizo 8. Interestingly, Chery doesn’t seem to plan any SUV’s for Arrizo, perhaps preferring to keep these under the Chery-brand proper.

chery-arrizo-3-china-2

The Arrizo 3 probably the best looking Chery ever, especially strong from 3/4 behind. Subtle use of chrome on top of rear lights. Only dissonant is the rear wheel that just looks awfully small.

CH Auto Event will see production in 2016http://www.carnewschina.com/2014/10/30/ch-auto-event-will-see-production-in-2016/ http://www.carnewschina.com/2014/10/30/ch-auto-event-will-see-production-in-2016/#comments Thu, 30 Oct 2014 00:58:38 +0000 http://www.carnewschina.com/?p=59718 CH Auto Event will see production in 2016

Design studio CH Auto has officially announced that their spectacular ‘Event’ electric supercar will see production in 2016. The company however declined to say which automaker is going to build it. The CH Auto Event debuted in concept form on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show.

ch-event-china-pro-2

Price is set to start around 700.000 yuan or 114.539 USD, which seems surprisingly cheap for such a high tech machine. The concept was ‘powered’ by an electric motor with an output of 400hp and 650nm, sending power to the rear wheels. Claimed specifications: top speed of 200 kilometers per hour, 0-100 in five seconds. Range 200 kilometer. Battery: 41.1kWh lithium. Charging takes only six hours on 220V. Curb weight is 1685 kilo.

Which automaker would be mad enough to go for it? Assuming the automaker is Chinese my best guess is BYD or Great Wall, or probably Geely. 2016 is only two years away…

Mercedes-Benz GLA launched on the Chinese auto markethttp://www.carnewschina.com/2014/10/28/mercedes-benz-gla-launched-on-the-chinese-auto-market/ http://www.carnewschina.com/2014/10/28/mercedes-benz-gla-launched-on-the-chinese-auto-market/#comments Tue, 28 Oct 2014 01:42:03 +0000 http://www.carnewschina.com/?p=59711 Mercedes-Benz GLA launched on the Chinese auto market

The Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class has been launched on the Chinese auto market, giving Mercedes another entry in the crucial SUV market. Price starts at 289.800 yuan and ends at 398.000 yuan. The GLA is imported into China. In mid-2015 local production of the GLA will start at the Beijing-Benz joint venture, this will bring the price down by about 20%.

benz-gla-china-2

The GLA comes in two variants: the 200 with a 156hp 1.6 turbo, and the 260 with a 211hp 2.0 turbo. The GLA will compete head-to-head with the locally made Audi Q3 and BMW X1, but the real battle will start when local production begins. Until then the GLA will be comparatively expensive.

The GLA and China have a strong connection; the GLA Concept had its worldwide debut on the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show.

The FAW Junpai D60 SUV has been launched on the Chinese car market, and it has become a rather good looking car. Price starts at 64.900 yuan and ends at 99.900 yuan. ‘Junpai’ is a new brand under the First Auto Works (FAW) umbrella and the D60 is their first car. Junpai-branded cars are manufactured by Tianjin-FAW, a FAW subsidiary based in the great city of Tianjin.

faw-junpai-d60-china-1a

A very good looking dash for the money. Well designed with fine materials. Center console particularly good, with a large touch screen and neatly positioned buttons.

faw-junpai-d60-china-2

The Junpai D60 is available with two petrol-powered four-cylinder engines: a 1.5 with 102hp and 135nm, and a 1.8 with 139hp and 170nm, both mated to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.

Size: 4170/1765/1625mm, wheelbase is 2557mm. Curb weight in kg: 1206 (1.6) / 1276 (1.8).

faw-junpai-d60-china-3

Sleek rear lights and a sharp shoulder line. The Junpai D60 will compete with fine cars such as the Changan CS35, the Haval H2, the JAC Refine S3, and the Chery Tiggo 3. The D60 is a good looking car with a fine interior, it is just the engines that are a little old and underpowered. Even so, we expect the Junpai D60 to sell reasonably well.

faw-junpai-d60-china-4

The 1.8.
