2012.04. FAW-Besturn B90 debuts at the Beijing Auto Show. The B90 has a massive chromed grill and is the biggest Besturn-branded car so far.

The price is expected to start around 145.000 yuan, about USD $25,000.

Engines: 2.0 with 146hp and a 2.5 with 169hp, mated to a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic.
Size: 4880/1812/1472
Wheelbase: 2780.

The newest model in FAW Car’s own brand Besturn, the B90, will begin rolling off the manufacturer’s assembly lines later this month, Beijing News reported today. Sales will commence within the next two months, FAW Car stated. The car will carry a price tag between 180,000 and 200,000 yuan ($28,661-$31,846) and will compete directly with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Teana.

The B90 (pictured) comes less than a month after the release of FAW Car’s brand new Besturn B70. FAW Car was able to make use of Mazda platform technology to develop the car. The B90 measures 4.86 m long, 1.81 m wide and 1.47 m tall, with a wheelbase of 2.78 m, making it a little larger than the Mazda6 Ruiyi. The B90 is equipped with the same xenon headlight design seen in other Besturn vehicles.

Several of the Hongqi H7’s advanced features, such as the Adaptive Frontlighting System, will be carried over to the B90. The B90 will offer electronic stability control, one button startup, multifunctional steering wheel, eight-way parking sensor, electronic seat controls, dual zone air conditioning and other features.

The B90 has both 2.0 L and 2.3 L engine options mated to a six-speed manumatic transmission. The engines boast maximum outputs of 108 kW and 118 kW, respectively. An independently developed turbocharged engine is reportedly also in the works.

此次亮相北京车展的奔腾B90采用的是2.3L发动机,这款还同样用在B70身上的发动机,最大功率、扭矩分别为120kw、204Nm,与雅阁、凯美瑞2.4L车型相比,它在动力输出方面稍处下风。除了此次亮相的2.3L车型,奔腾B90还将有2.0L车型提供,其最大功率、扭矩分别为108kw、183Nm,这款发动机也同时用在奔腾B50、马自达6、睿翼等车型身上。变速箱方面,奔腾B90配备了6速手自一体变速箱,这也是目前中级车的主流配备。

奔腾B70凭借着马自达6的优良口碑以及实惠的售价得到了部分消费者的认可,而如今随着马自达6的优惠进一步加大,B70的日子也越来越不好过了。于是奔腾B90孕育而生,在马自达睿翼共享底盘的基础上它还有怎样的作为呢?看过正文您便知晓。



从外观设计上来看,奔腾B90无愧于旗舰二字,大气稳重的造型让它明显要比B70更容易营造气场。长4860mm/宽1812mm/高1472mm/轴距2780mm的车身尺寸表现甚至已经和帕萨特领驭、凯美瑞等主流中级车不分上下了。中网造型与B70保持一致从而形成了奔腾品牌的家族特征,并且车标也直接挂上了一汽的LOGO。
