There was a rumor that BYD will exibit a series of new models at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition including F4, F5 mid-sized sedans and M6 MPV. But none of the mentioned vehicles was present.

Today, a BYD G3 new picture of the rear exposure. Unique from a picture point of view, the design of a new but familiar once again appear in the BYD's cars on.

G3 unique tail design reminiscent of Lexus ES350, toughness full lines of the tail brings a good three-dimensional sense of trust will become BYD competitive mid-size car market of the important models. Designed to imitate the tail of the ES series, I do not know G3 shape again before the face would look like.

It is understood that the vehicle will be listed at the end of August this year, positioning compact car, but than it is now the BYD F3 main objective of the compact car market will be more high-end. Therefore, the price will be higher than the F3. At present, the message about G3 little, we will continue to pay attention to.

According to China Car Times G3 won't succeed F3 although design of the interior of both cars looks the same to me.

The BYD G3 is causing quite a bit of interest in the Chinese motoring blogosphere, BYD practically rose to fame on the back of the ever popular BYD F3 sedan which closely resembles the last generation Toyota Corolla. The upcoming BYD G3 is going to sit between the not so popular BYD F6 full size sedan and the popular BYD F3, although it appears that both the F3’s and G3’s interior is the same at this stage.

Although it could be that BYD plan to alter the G3’s interior at a later stage and are only using the F3’s for testing, it feels like a little bit of a cop out to design such a nice car but then use a mama-huhu interior that we’ve all seen before.

The upcoming G3 will be powered by 1.5l engine and also a 1.8l engine, the 1.8L engine was designed by BYD themselves but the 1.5l is expected to be a bought in Mitsubishi unit. The G3 will have the option of either a 5 speed manual or a CVT gearbox. The G3 will also boast LED rear lights and angel eye front headlights.

A launch date for the G3 has not yet been announced, but before February 2010 is a likely guess.

News from gasgoo.com

September 14,2009
BYD's first self-developed upmarket sedan model was unveiled at an auto show in east China's Shandong province last week and is ready to go on sale in the fourth quarter this year, Chinese media reported today.

The G3 is certainly different from BYD's all other models so far and will have an independent A3 sales network, with the A1 network for the F3, F6 models and A2 network for the F3R, F0 models. The G3 is the first model to sell through BYD's A3 network.

As an upmarket compact sedan model positioned between the F3 and F6 models, the G3 will priced from 80,000 yuan ($11,700) to 100,000 yuan.

The G3 is going to be built on the same platform as BYD's popular F0, F3 models. It will come with power from a 1.5-liter or a 1.8-liter engine and also the option of a 5-speed manual or CVT gearbox.

The BYD G3 was rumored to be a 'mini Lexus' model, thanks to its rear end appearing on CCT earlier this year, but the front end is certainly Toyota Vios in style.
