2014 JAC S3.jpg

JAC Ruifeng S3 (江淮 瑞風 S3/江淮 瑞风 S3). 2014 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/F, 1499 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Torino-designed SUV, styled by team led by Lu Di. The second of two new SUVs from JAC in 2014 targeting the growing segment. Protruding nose, undertyred appearance. Engine rated at 83 kW, not that competitive, but good for fuel economy. Interior better put together than with other JAC models. MacPherson struts at front, semi-independent rear torsion beams, geared more to urban driving than twisty lanes. Aimed at youth market. Ultimately, the S3 gained a reputation for spotty quality and sales began dropping. Assembled in Italy by DR Automobiles as the DR4.

Manufacturing location: Hefei, Anhui, China

Marque: JAC | Model: JAC Ruifeng | Successor: JAC Ruifeng S4
