At the end of July, the sale of the renewed BAIC BJ80 SUV, which is a Chinese copy of the legendary Mercedes G-Class, began.

Mercedes did not “problematize” the look of the BJ80 too much, because BAIC is the Chinese partner of the giant from Stuttgart. In addition, Mercedes concern Daimler AG owns 10 percent of BAIC shares.

Let’s go back to the BJ80, which got a refined look, new 20-inch wheels, richer equipment and a digital cockpit, but the key changes are hidden under the checkered tin suit.

The BJ80 is powered by a new 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine with 280 “horsepower”, which is equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is complemented by differential locks and a gearbox.

Understandably, a car conceived in this way cannot be “Chinese cheap”, but the price is significantly lower than the original: the BAIC BJ80 costs 350,000 yuan (45,580 euros). That is exactly 50% less than the cheapest Mercedes G-Class, which starts at 90 thousand euros.
