Spy Shots showing the production version of the JAC Heyue S30 SUV. The Heyue S30 debuted as a concept on the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show, the production version will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and it will be launched on the China car market around the same time. All local Chinese automakers use small tires as a cheap way to bring fuel consumption down, and JAC is the new champion, look at those wheels being ridiculously miniscule in the arches.
The JAC Heyue S30 is powered by a 1.5 liter petrol engine with an output of 113hp and 146nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. Top speed is 160km/h and fuel consumption of the manual is claimed to be 5.9 liter per 100 kilometer, which isn’t very good anyway for a car of this size: 4325/1765/1660, wheelbase is 2560 and curb weight is 1220kg. Price for all this pretty will start around 70.000 yuan and end around 90.000 yuan. The Heyue S30 is based on the same platform as the JAC Heyue A30 sedan.
Buyers can choose for more chrome in the grille. They will.
