Earlier this month, Chinese brand Baojun launched the RM-5 MPV and RC-6 sedan under its new diamond logo at the Chengdu Motor Show 2019. Equipped with industry-leading connectivity and class-leading driver-assistance technology, the two new nameplates represent Baojun’s latest intelligent mobility solutions.
Both new models come with Bosch’s driver assistance system. The Level-2 ADAS system covers 16 daily driving scenarios to reduce driving fatigue, especially during heavy traffic.
The advanced adaptive cruise control system on the RM-5 and RC-6 can be activated at a speed of up to 130kph. The combination of a 77-GHz long-range millimetre-wave radar and a multifunction high-definition camera makes the identification of people, cars and roads ahead more precise.
In order to enhance the safety of driving at night, the LED headlights on the RM-5 and RC-6 are equipped with class-leading IHMA intelligent high and low beam switching. Other safety features include Traffic Jam Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Cruise Assist, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Traffic Sign Warning and Traffic Speed Assist.
The RM-5 MPV and RC-6 sedan come with a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine with 108 kW of maximum power and 245 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is paired with a choice of a six-speed manual transmission or a virtual eight-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT).
With ground clearance of 198mm, the RC-6 offers the advantage of an SUV along with the nimble driving dynamics of a sedan. It is 4,925mm long, 1,880mm wide, 1,580mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,800mm, giving it a roomy interior. Its six variants are priced from RMB 84,800 to RMB 123,800 (Rs 853,000 to Rs 12.45 lakh) .
The RM-5 offers 12 variants with five-, six- and seven-seat options priced from RMB 86,800 to RMB 120,800 (Rs 873,000 to Rs 12.15 lakh). With a length of 4,705mm, width of 1,806mm, height of 1,645mm and wheelbase of 2,750mm, it is the first MPV with Baojun’s new diamond logo that covers all user scenarios for young families in China.
