A production-ready version of the latest FAW Junpai A50 sedan is being displayed at the ongoing Chengdu Auto Show 2017. The sedan is most likely to be officially launched in China quite soon.
The A50 sedan boasts a clean design language and is considered a far better design both in terms of exterior and interior. It has a 3-bar grille embedded with FAW winged logo up front, an integrated rear spoiler at the back with a bumper that completely hides the tail pipe, as well as black claddings under front and rear bumpers & the side skirts.
Inside, the A50 is equipped with a multi-function steering wheel and a 9 inch touch screen with a multimedia entertainment audio and video system, including features such as voice control, infotainment, smart navigation and driving assistance.
It also boasts an engine start/ stop system, keyless smart entry system, engine immobilizer, reversing camera and sunroof etc. Safety equipment includes Driver/ Passenger Airbags, ABS with EBD, TSC (Traction Control System), and TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System).
The A50 sedan will be powered by either a 122hp 1.5 liter naturally aspirated engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 119hp 1.0 liter Turbocharged unit with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT).
According to the information received so far, FAW does have plans to introduce the A50 sedan in emerging markets most likely by 2019. Official prices are yet to be revealed but it’s speculated to start around 60,000 yuan (PKR 9.42 lac).
