He started with great ambitions and crashed completely. The Baojun RC5-W, which was only available on the Chinese market for a few months, saw no match for its hatchback brother RC-5 in terms of sales figures, and was therefore completely surprisingly withdrawn from the market after less than six months. Now a so-called re-launch, i.e. a restart, is planned, which will involve various Customization programs should be significantly more successful than the first market launch of the model, which took place in August 2020. After all, Baojun does not want to fall flat again when it comes to successively expanding its model range, because a model launch is always associated with high costs.
Tuning measures on the Baojun RC-5W
First of all, of course, the foliation in the color falls immediately Aurora violet which gives the compact station wagon from the Middle Kingdom a very special flair. There is also a camouflage film available, which gives the compact station wagon a cool look. Together with the roof box from the Swedish manufacturer Thule, which is also available in the same color foiled, and the design was specially tailored to the vehicle, the result is a very harmonious overall impression. There is also an optional roof tent, which significantly increases the practicality and makes the Baojun RC-5W an everyday mobile home. Of course, the huge ones also contribute to the sportiness, which is clearly crystallized 20-inch alloy wheels at that clearly borrowed from the design BBS take, and that Baojun RC5-W give a sporty appearance. Also noticeable is the third side window, which is significantly smaller than the other side windows and somehow has a resemblance to an airplane window that cannot be completely dismissed.
On closer inspection of the roof box, it is also noticeable that the front design of the box takes up the design of the upper part of the vehicle front, thus creating an additional sporty effect. In addition, it will not only stay with the purple foiling or the camouflage edition, but there will also be others foiling and special paintwork Offered at the factory to make the customization options as diverse as possible. It seems as if Baojun has had the success of the sister brand Wuling's Hongguang Mini EV, which is often so curiously modified, that you can hardly identify him as such, Licked my blood, and realized that various tuning options lure customers into the showrooms for whom a simple off-the-shelf model is too boring and banal.
1,5-liter petrol engines with or without turbocharging are available.
The drive source is a 1,5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine from the GM shelf, which is available both with and without turbocharging. While the supercharged engine is on 147 PS and 250 Newtonmeter maximum torque comes, the very weak-chested sucker has to go along with it 99 PS and 135 Newtonmeter content with maximum torque. There are also a Manual transmission and an CVT to choose from, and the power is transmitted to the Front wheels. From our point of view, it should be the turbo gasoline engine, because it goes much better with the sporty look of the compact station wagon, which is well designed.
