GM's Baojun 310 Wagon Costs Less Than Your Bimmer's Wheels In China

| |

The SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture has given birth to the Baojun 310 Wagon.

Presented in full at the Auto Shanghai 2017 last April, the estate is now available to order in China, and it can be had from as low as RMB 42,800. That's equal to just $6,291 at today's exchange rates, while local customers wanting a better equipped model will have to pay up to RMB 56,800 ($8,349).

There's no way to put it - the Baojun 310 Wagon looks dull, inside and out. Still, depending on the selected trim, it does get features such as an 8-inch LCD screen for the entertainment system, navigation, and rearview camera, air conditioning, cruise control, USB ports, keyless entry and push-button start.

Joining its hatchback sibling, the 310 Wagin has space for up to 5 occupants, and can carry plenty of luggage inside the capacious 740-liter boot. The cargo capacity can double in size with the rear seats folded.

The engine lineup includes two naturally aspirated units - a 1.2-liter and a 1.5-liter, both of which are mated to a 6-speed stick shift. GM's local arm says that the average fuel economy is 6.5 l/100 km (36.19 US mpg).
