What Does the Rival of the Skoda Octavia at the Price of the Renault Logan Look Like?

The new Baojun RC-5 will show great sales in the market of premium compact models. Should the Skoda Octavia be scared?

American General Motors and China-based SAIC have teamed up to create relatively affordable cars. Their joint work has led to a whole line of models, but now we will talk about the Baojun RC-5. The liftback corresponds in size to the Skoda Octavia, but it will cost as the Renault Logan — about $10,000.

The new low-cost model is not like any of its counterparts in the automotive world. This is certainly good, especially if we are talking about a Chinese car.

The Baojun RC-5 has received a fashionable two-level design of the front lighting equipment: narrow daytime running lights are combined in a single stripe on top, and headlights are decorated in large blocks in the bumper.

An LED brake light strip runs across the entire rear end, but this applies only to the top-end variant — the standard one will receive a glossy black molding. At the same time, graphics of taillights also change depending on the configuration.

It is worth noting that the new Baojun RC-5 is positioned as a premium model. However, the interior of the new vehicle, which could match this title or refute it, was not shown. Its engine line-up cannot be called too powerful — two 1.5-liter engines will produce 99 hp and 147 hp. Great!
