Published on April 4, 2014 by Tycho de Feijter
The vehicle known as the Beijing Auto C60 will be called ‘Beijing Auto Shenbao D60’ when it hits the China car market in the second half of the year. The Shenbao D60 will debut on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show starting later this month. New spy shots clearly show the new name:
Shenbao D60 (绅宝D60) will be positioned between the upcoming Beijing Auto C50E and the Beijing Auto Shenbao D-Series. There will be two engines available: a new 177hp 1.8 turbo and an ex-Saab 2.0 turbo with 204hp. The Beijing Auto Shenbao D60 is based on the old Saab 9-3. Beijing Auto bought the rights to the Saab 9-3 and Saab 9-5 from GM in 2009, they also bought the rights to the Saab 2.0 turbo and 2.3 turbo. On pic the 2.0 turbo.
