Sirui is expected to hit showrooms in the first half of 2013 and sell for about 100,000 Yuan (US$16,000).

The first spy shots from the BYD 6B without camouflage. It will be called BYD Si Rui when it hits the Chinese market next year. The Si Rui will be positioned above the current BYD F6 just like the new remote controlled BYD Su Rui has been positioned above the BYD F3. Thw Si Rui so should be seen as an extra luxurious version of the F6.

Power will come from a 1.5 turbo with 154hp and 240nm, mated to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed DCT. BYD’s design improving, no doubt.





思锐作为F6的替代车型,相比上代车型F6,比亚迪思锐的车身尺寸也发生了小幅改变,其数据为4870/1830/1460(mm),轴距达到了2755mm,整体的长度、宽度都有所提升。新车也将装备上1.5T发动机及DCT双离合变速箱,将于明年正式上市销售。

从获得的配置表来看,新车将推出舒适型、豪华型、尊贵型以及旗舰型在内的4款配置车型,所有车型均配备一台编号为476ZQA的1.5Ti直喷涡轮增压发动机,这款发动机已经搭载在比亚迪G6身上,拥有113kw/5200rpm的最大功率及240Nm/1750-3500rpm的峰值扭矩,远超过搭载在高尔夫上的1.4TSI,账面数据十分可观。

值得一提的是,与这款1.5T发动机搭配的,是一台6速手动变速器和一台6速双离合变速器。

作为比亚迪又一款中级车型,这款新车以自主车型中领先的电子装备为卖点,噱头十足。

除了震撼的全液晶仪表盘,思锐在中控台上还拥有一个10.2寸的触屏式DVD导航系统。再加上一键启动系统、电子手刹和前排座椅加热等高端配置的亮相,也证明了思锐在比亚迪家族中的高端地位。

In May, a new mid-size car, codenamed 6B, started to roll off the line at BYD’s Changsha factory. Featuring a 1.5T engine mated to a dual-clutch transmission, the most advanced powertrain from BYD, the 6B is generally considered the second-gen F6. This week a group of photos from an unknown source appeared online, revealing the sedan carrying a new plate: “Sirui.”
