GM’s Baojun 360 MPV Is An Estate That Wants To Be A Minivan

General Motors is tapping deeper and deeper into the Chinese car market, and its latest offering is the Baojun 360.

The estate with a very high roofline is marketed as a minivan, with 4,615mm (181.7in) in length, and a 2,750mm (108.3in) wheelbase. That’s slightly more than what you’d get in a five-door Dacia Logan.

And we didn’t compare it to the Romanian budget car for nothing, because the 360 is very affordable, with a starting price of RMB 60,000 ($9,478), which reaches RMB 80,000 ($12,637) in the range-topping model.

Inside, it has a 2+2+2 seating configuration. The independent seats for the second row are said to offer sufficient space for all passengers, and with the second and third rows folded down the boot space is a remarkable 1,350 liters (47.7cu-ft).

“The Baojun 360 is a versatile vehicle for today’s families. With its six seats, couples can go out with two kids and two grandparents, which is becoming more and more common in China“, said Mike Devereux, SAIC-GM-Wuling’s Executive VP. “They can also count on the Baojun 360 to carry everything, from tents and fishing rods, to larger items such as musical instruments.”

GM’s local joint venture has the Baojun 360 on display at Auto China 2018, in Beijing, alongside the updated 310 Wagon. The latter features a new grille and headlights at the front, and a rotary shift knob and paddle shifters inside.

Pricing for the Baojun 310 Wagon starts at RMB 63,800 ($10,078), whereas the top-of-the-line grade costs RMB 69,800 ($11,026).
