Baojun ShS-6 2019 – another new Baojun… now a liftback
Liftback Baojun RK-6 (Baojun RK-6) officially introduced in China on July 11, 2019 and will be the third model of the Chinese brand, built on a modular platform with a transverse engine and fully independent suspension on all wheels, then the crossover Baojun RS-5 and compact van Baojun RM-5. Thus, the Baojun brand, originally developed by General Motors and SAIC, to promote low-cost cars in the Chinese market, opening up new, more expensive segments. The new large liftback Baojun RU-6 pozitsioniruetsya as a more affordable alternative to the version of the German coupe-shaped crossover BMW X4.
Price and configuration Baojun RC-6
The cross liftback… it’s something new, but it basically looks like a new model of a Chinese car brand. Production of the Baojun SHS-6 sedan was launched in China in July 2019. The price of a large 5-door version with a total body length of 4.9 m, a 147-horsepower turbocharged engine and rich equipment (which is just a couple of 12.3-inch displays, a touch-sensitive climate control unit and leather seat trim) will range from 85 to 90 thousand yuan (780-825 thousand conventional units).
Looking at the official photos of the Baojun PK-6 and researching the characteristics of the new Chinese car, it is clear that the new product literally stands on the border of classes and the junction of genres. Such a symbiosis of a large sedan, a stylish sedan with a coupe-shaped roof and a crossover with a plastic body kit along the lower perimeter of the body, 18-inch wheels and a ground clearance of 191 mm.
The external dimensions of the Baojun RK-6 2019-2020 body are 4925 mm long, 1880 mm wide and 1580 mm high with a wheelbase of 2800 mm.
Now I understand why the creators of the new compare Baojun RC-6 with BMW X4. We have a large and stylish car with a bright and original appearance. The Arsenal has a solid and strict front, an ideal profile body and a powerful stern. Complementing the portrait is a huge grille with a three-dimensional pattern, neat headlights with small sections of LED daytime running lights, round wheel arch cutouts, large doors, stylish LED taillights and an impressive fifth door.
The interior of the new Baojun Chinese RC-6 sedan was clearly created with an eye on the interior design of the new Mercedes-Benz model. On the front under one canopy, two 12.3-inch color display. One is a virtual instrument panel, and the second is for the advanced advanced networking capabilities of the multimedia system. The Arsenal also features a stylish multi-function steering wheel, a sensor climate control unit, a powerful add-on to the central tunnel.
The list of optional equipment for the Baojun RC-6 is very extensive and includes many options, some of which are clearly out of date – from the usual single-zone climate control and power windows on all doors with an automatic closing function only on the driver’s door. And some are simply vital for a modern car – these are adaptive cruise control, a car lane keeping system, tailgate power, a keyless entry system with a Start / Stop button, combined leather seat trim.
