Borgward BX6 2018 – new coupe crossover
The new coupe-shaped crossover Borgward BX6 (Borgward BX6) entered the Chinese market after more than two years after the debut presentation of the BX6 Borgward TC prototype in March 2016. In our review of the 2018-2019 Borgward BX6 crossover – photos and videos, the price and configuration of the Borgward BX5 SUV platform brother with the original liftback coupe body. The third model (the Borgward BX5 and Borgward BX7 crossovers are already sold in China) of the revived Borgward brand is the Borgward BX6 SUV, offered by Chinese enthusiasts with a powerful 224-horsepower 2.0 Turbo engine at a price of 182800-199800 yuan (about 1161-1267 thousand conventional units).
The company’s new Borgward aroused genuine interest among Chinese motorists, but sales of crossovers and Borgward BX5 Borgward BX7 in China can hardly be called successful. By the end of 2016, more than 30,000 copies have already been sold, but the situation in 2017 is better, and the company has already managed to sell 44,380 vehicles. The dynamics are clearly positive, and the release of the third model – Borgward BX6 will allow the company to significantly increase the volume of crossovers.
I would like to emphasize that the stylish new Borgward BX6 is positioned as a GT car and at the highest level. The company’s most powerful engine on the market is a 224-horsepower turbo four 2.0 T-GDI with a 6-speed DCT gearbox from BorgWarner, all-wheel drive with a clutch that connects the rear wheels, and a very generous car is equipped with leather trim, power driver’s seat, multimedia system with an 8-inch screen, dual-zone climate control, and this is already in the basic configuration.
Borgward Chief Designer Swedish designer Anders Warming, formerly of BMW and Mini, comparing his creation of the Borgward BX6 crossover to the premium BMW X4 coupe-shaped crossover and the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and Mercedes-Benz Gle Coupe hints that the new Borgward looks no worse than crossovers of well-known companies.
It’s hard not to agree with the Swedish designer, this really is a Borgward BX6 that looks really good. When you look at the body of the new Chinese crossover, the hand of the master of the European Design School is immediately visible. The product has a modern, original and stylish appearance. The most striking details are the magnificent dome on the roof, the magnificent wheel arches adorned with a sporty punch, the compact and neat headlights and dividing them into position lights with LED content.
- The outside dimensions of the 2018-2019 Borgward BX6 body are 4601mm long, 1877mm wide, 1656mm high with a 2.685mm wheelbase and 184mm ground clearance.
- By default, the crossover is equipped with large 19-inch alloy wheels with Goodyear EfficientGrip 225/55 R19 tires for the front and rear axles.
- Borgward BX6, with the same wheelbase dimensions of 2685 mm, and a body width of 1877 mm from the platform of the Borgward BX5 model, is significantly larger than the brother of the platform by 111 mm and 19 mm.
The five-seat interior of the new coupe-shaped crossover BX6 received from the BX5 model, but … for interior decoration We offer better materials and equipment, even in the basic configuration it is impressive.
In the arsenal of a pair of front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger, ISOFIX system for attaching child seats, ABS with EBD and BAS, TCS and ESP, rear parking sensors, rear view camera, electric parking brake, hill descent assistance system, power sunroof, power tailgate, keyless entry system with engine start/stop button-multifunction steering wheel, instrument panel with color display, trip computer, power driver’s seat, armrests in the first and second row, multimedia system with 8-inch color touch screen and 6-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control, power windows on all doors, electrically adjustable and heated rear-view mirrors, leather trim.
The maximum configuration has additional side curtain airbags of the first and second rows, tire pressure sensors, rear parking sensors, automatic adjustments, passenger seat, heated front seats, 9-speaker audio system, navigation, adaptive headlights, rear-view mirrors with automatic folding, rain sensors and light.
It remains only to add that the stylish and elegant appearance, the roof dome, rolling on the back door with a heavily littered glass, unfortunately, is reflected in the comfort of passengers in the rear seats and the useful volume of the trunk. Passengers were literally propped up by the upper part of the ceiling, and the trunk is able to take 380 liters of luggage while traveling. If desired, the volume of the luggage compartment can be increased by folding the split 40/60 rear row.
