FAW Besturn B90.jpg

Besturn B90 (一汽奔騰/一汽奔腾 B90). 2012 to date (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 1999, 2259 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Flagship for FAW’s premium sub-brand, designed to rival GAC Trumpchi (2010–), Riich G6, and Hyundai Sonata (YF). Ungainly to western eyes, prestigious to Chinese ones at time of launch. Platform related to Mazda (double wishbones at front, multi-link suspension at rear), but stretched in size to exceed Toyota Camry (XV50) (2,780 mm wheelbase versus Toyota’s 2,775). Better interior quality, excepting some switchgear. Engines from Mazda as well. Good handling, thanks to Mazda tech, at the expense of ride, which might turn off conservative Chinese buyers. Responsive steering. Sold on price.


Manufacturing location: China

Marque: Besturn
