Published on August 12, 2016 by Tycho de Feijter
The new Besturn B50 has been launched on the Chinese car market, and is has become a rather good looking automobile with sharply cut lights and speedy creases on the sides. Price starts at 81.800 yuan and ends at 117.800 yuan. The Besturn B50 comes in two kinds, the base version like this red car, and a…
… RS sport version. The RS has a black grille with a red line, a black roof, a spoiler on the boot lid, a bunch of RS badges, and a slightly dressed up interior.
Engines: a 1.6 with 109hp and 155nm, and a 1.4 turbo with 136hp and 220nm, both mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, sending power to the front wheels.
The RS is only available with the 1.4 turbo.
Size: 4695/1795/1460, and wheelbase is 2725.
Profile looks very nice. Design wise Besturn has been improving a lot lately.
The interior, seen here in top trim level. Nice seats. Touch screen on the small side.
The RS with a wood strip, an RS badge on the wheel, perforated pedals, and red stitching on the seats. Otherwise, no differences.
The infotainment system. Showing the radio, as always. Because that is the only thing where 99.99% of Chinese drivers uses the infotainment system for. All the rest goes per mobile phone. Auto makers in China might as well delete the entire infotainment and install a radio. Or they might finally design a system that fully and seamlessly integrates the phone with the infotainment. So far, nobody has been abl to do that.
Bench will seat 3.
Grille looks good.
