Brilliance Jinjue

Brilliance Motor Works

Is this China’s best yet?

Remember that “BMW”like Chinese sedan that was previewed last year’s Frankfurt Show? Well, Chinese carmaker Brilliance has released it in the China market under the name Jinjue sedan.

Jinjue, which can be translated either as “Triumphant Horse” or “Winning Gold”, was designed, as its bigger brother, the Zhonghua sedan -not surprisingly, by Italian specialist Pininfarina and it reminds us of a “mini” 5-Series –some evil people say it looks even better than the new 3 Series…

Now before you ask yourself why doesn’t BMW do something about it, shall I remind you that BMW & Brilliance Auto have a formed a joint-venture in China, producing BMW’s for the local market. It is also said that BMW has given the “know how” to Brilliance for the making of the Jinjue.

Four engines will be available at launch ranging from 1.6 to 2.0 liters -including a 1.8 Turbo with 170 hp. Brilliance hopes this sports sedan will boost its annual sales from 17,500 to 30,000 this year. That does not include possible European sales, which are said to start later this year.
