More chrome inside but the cheaper models come without anything resembling a proper screen. A 60.000 BYD comes standard with a 7 inch touch screen these days. There are three engines available: a 1.6 turbo with 200hp and 275nm, a 1.6 turbo with 163hp and 240nm, and a 1.8 with 139hp and 170nm.
Another look at the wheel. Must be a heavy thing.
Note chrome strip running all the way from first window to rear lights, and another large strip at the low-end of the doors. The door handles however are strangely in body color.
A bit more chrome in the rear lights, but bumper looks clean.
