Talking about products from Wuling is always interesting, because this brand always offers cars at affordable prices. Reflecting on experience, Wuling Confero and Confero S which have been introduced, the price is even cheaper than the lowest variant of the next brand.
Wuling Indonesia through PT SGMW Motor Indonesia in 2018 plans to introduce the Indonesian version of Baojun 310. The price of Baojun 310, as quoted from Otosia, is also quite pocket-friendly, where in its home country this car is only priced between RMB 36,800 (Rp.73 million) up to RMB 49,800 (IDR 98 million).
Even if there is a price increase, the Baojun 310 is still quite affordable. The segmentation can fight with existing LCGC cars. So, with a low price, is Baojun 310 worthy of our choice as an alternative to LCGC?
Stylish and Sporty design typical of young people
The Wuling Baojun 310 Hatchback is said to “combine traditional Wuling-style styling with a large posture with a youthful and modern look”, represented by a ‘Double-U' front dominated by a large upper grille.
The style is very youthful. Unfortunately, with such dimensions the length of the tire comparison is rather small, so the comparison with the body is somewhat less than ideal. In dimensions, the Baojun 310 has a wheelbase of 2,550 mm, which is described as “the longest among hatchback cars in its class”.
Small and Efficient Machine, Not Lose From LCGC
Baojun 310 is sold in four luxury trims, namely Value, Comfort, Fashion and Luxury. All of them carry a 1,200cc engine with a choice of five-speed manual transmission.
The power source for the Baojun 310 comes from the newly developed 1.2-liter naturally aspirated engine. The engine is capable of producing 82 PS (81 HP) of power with 116 Nm (86-ft.lbs) of torque at 3,600 rpm, and an average fuel consumption of 5.3 liters / 100 km.
Interior with Complete and Cool Features
Inside the cabin, the highest type Baojun 310 is supported by an 8-inch high-resolution LCD screen with GPS and Bluetooth navigation systems. This front wheel drive car features a very tantalizing feature. In fact, some of its features could be on par with the Honda HR-V, which costs three times as much.
Call it Cruise Control, four airbags, ISOFIX child safety seats, power sunroof, up to 18 storage spaces. The Baojun 310 also has a rear view mirror camera, as well as ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution.
Seeing the price range and specifications offered, the Baojun 310 will be an urban car with the best features and the lowest price. Even if this car is sold at a price of Rp. 200 million, it can still be called affordable because its features can be compared to a car that costs Rp. 300 million in Indonesia.
Unfortunately, the plan of PT SGMW Motor to introduce the Baojun 310 was nevertheless carried out. However, it is never too late for a full-featured city car like the Baojun 310 because the technology requirements of a vehicle are considered increasingly important.
