BYD is working on a small facelift for the L3 sedan. When it arrives early next year it will also get a new 1.2 turbo engine, named ‘1.2 TI’. The current BYD L3 debuted in August 2010 and is only available with a naturally aspirated 1.5. The 1.2 TI will replace this engine and BYD will later on ad a 1.5 turbo to the line-up.
