At the Shanghai Auto Show in 2015 BAIC Company presented the new BAIC BJ80C SUV. Last year this model was presented as a concept but this year BJ80C is positioned as a completely ready version. The crossover copies legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV. Look at the external form, which is similar to the G-Wagen. The BAIC model is 4780 mm long, 1850 mm wide, 1975 mm high and the car wheelbase is 2800 mm. BJ80C can be called one of the best off-road vehicles in China.

It is also interesting that the equipment of SUV turned out to be quite good and is just a little bit different from the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The car is supplied with two power units – four-cylinder petrol engine with a capacity of 2.4 liters and 4.0-liter six-cylinder petrol unit. Some elements are borrowed from other models. For example, the grill copies the Hummer brand. BAIC BJ80C interior is also worthy. In the center of dashboard, there are the wood elements. The air conditioner, audio system with a large screen, ABS and front airbags will be able to make a driving comfortable. The price of the car is not yet determined.
