FAW Besturn X80 SUV @Shanghai AutoShow 2013
This is the first well designed car from FAW.
The Besturn X80 is based on the platform of the last generation Mazda 6 that is still in production in China by the FAW-Mazda joint venture. Engines are both from Mazda; a 146hp 2.0 and a 154hp 2.3 , both mated to a 6-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Size: 4586/1820/1662, wheelbase is 2675.
Notice the ’1.8T’ badge on the back, indicating FAW’s own 1.8 turbo will be available in the X80 too. The 1.8 turbo is still under development.
