New Baojun 510 SUV With Auto Box Costs Less Than A Ford Fiesta In China

Presented at last year’s Guangzhou Auto Show, the Baojun 510 can now be had with an automated manual transmission.

The China-only small SUV costs less than a new Ford Fiesta in the States, retailing between RMB 68,800 and RMB 75,800, depending on the selected trim, which equals to $10,580-$11,660 at today’s exchange rates.

Joining the manual transmission versions, the new model features a 1.5-liter engine, which is married to an automated manual gearbox. The SUV can be equipped with steering wheel paddle shifters, for what the automaker describes as a “sporty driving performance”, in addition to other amenities.

These include the semi-open panoramic sunroof, automatic air conditioning, heated and folding side mirrors with electronic adjustment, 8-inch LCD screen with smartphone connectivity and reversing camera, keyless entry, push-button start, and cruise control.

On the outside, it retains the look of the Baojun 510 manual, but offering a distinctive styling are the added LED DRLs, while inside it gets black and brown surfaces, and extra sound insulation, which is said to have been applied in 34 different areas.

    It’s amazing how cheap a car can be made for when you take away development costs because you’ve just copied everyone else’s technology.

    ..and where’s ‘park’ on the tranny?

    • Kurotsuki Kaitou

      Park? The transmission? It’s using AMT, so there are no Park. You won’t find any Park either on Maruti’s (Suzuki’s) AMT/AGS like the one used on Ignis… 🤔
