The new Brilliance-Jinbei S30 has been launched at the China car market. For now it is only available with an 1.5, a 1.5 turbo and a 1.3 will follow later. Price starts at 59.800 yuan and ends at 67.800 yuan. The S30 is a small-size SUV-cross thing aimed at first-car buyers looking for something different. Jinbei is a brand from Brilliance Auto famous for its minivans and small buses, the S30 is Jibei’s first passenger car.
The Brilliance-Jinbei S30 mini-SUV debuted as a concept car in April at the Shanghai Auto Show. Brilliance has since been busy testing the S30 and the near-production car debuted at the Guangzhou Auto Show in a nice blue paint job. The Jinbei S30 will be listed in January 2012, price will range from 60.000 to 80.000 yuan.
The Brilliance-Jinbei S30 has been delayed. Earlier we heard it would be listen in June, then July and now we hear it is postponed until October. The car on the spy pics has a round area for the logo again where the oval Jinbei-logo does not seem to fit. This has lead to speculation that the S30 will be sold under the Brilliance-brand itself and not under the Jinbei-brand.
The Brilliance-Jinbei S30 debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show in May, it will be listed in June for around 70.000 yuan. Spy pics show a S30 testing but the place where the logo will be is different than what it should be…

Jinbei is a sub brand from Brilliance automotive. The make vans, minivans, cheap SUV’s and now this brilliant Jinbei S30 mini SUV. The S30 will be positioned as a ‘city suv’. It seems Brilliance wants to use Jinbei as a cheaper brand for passanger car, much more than as a completely different brand as it does now. More on the S30 as we get it.
