BAIC Estimate RM12xk-RM14xk –

BAIC, which celebrated its official launch in Malaysia, also introduced the X55 SUV model. It is a C-segment SUV that will compete with the Proton X70 and the Honda CR-V. For the local market, the X55 is offered in two variants – Standard and Premium (with an estimated price of RM12xk-RM14xk). Seen here is a pre-production model, the CKD version of which will go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year, and will be assembled at the EP Manufacturing (EPMB) plant in Pegoh, Melaka.

In terms of dimensions, the X55 is in the C segment – 4,620 mm long, 1,886 mm wide and 1,680 mm high. This model is almost 100mm longer, 55mm wider and 14mm lower than the X70, while its wheelbase is 65mm longer at 2,735mm. Therefore, our initial assumption that this SUV belongs to the B segment was wrong.

It’s also only slightly smaller than the CR-V, which is 4,691 mm long, 1,866 mm wide and 1,691 mm high. The rear suspension of the X55 also uses a multi-link suspension, which is often used on C-segment SUVs.

Both variants are equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder direct injection engine that produces 188 hp at 5,500 rpm and 305 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 4,500 rpm. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a seven-speed wet dual-clutch transmission, enabling this model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds. Fuel consumption is stated as 7.2 liters per 100 km (WLTP cycle).

The exterior design is sharp, with thin L-shaped LED daytime running lights, a lower position of the LED headlights, sharp window designs and chrome trim all around. The closed front reveals it as an electric vehicle, coupled with a Lexus RX-style hexagonal bumper design. The door handle is also hidden.

At the rear, the optional separate spoiler ensures a sporty appearance. This is supplemented by four exhaust trims, which are missing from pre-production models but will be present on later sales models. Two-tone body paint with a black roof and black side mirrors is also available as an option. The “Beijing” badge, which is still visible, will later be replaced by “BAIC”.

Inside, the simple design comes into its own – a tapered dashboard with a cooling funnel in the L-shaped corner, and the center console also floats with a flat gear selector, plenty of storage space and a wireless Qi charger. The standard model has faux leather wrapping, while the premium model has genuine leather with memory function for the seats, porous and equipped with heating function.

The SUV is also equipped with two 10-inch displays for the instrument cluster and infotainment as well as dual-zone automatic climate control. Unfortunately, there is no sign of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The Bluetooth function is available with six speakers.

Other standard features include a keyless system, a push-start button, a panoramic roof, an anti-glare rearview mirror, rear cooling vents, a rearview camera, a power rear cargo door and six airbags. Premium also gets additional lights Ambient 10 colors.

It is not yet clear what the driver assistance system offers. This pre-production unit is not equipped with the system, but BAIC says the retail version will have features such as forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane change warning and blind spot warning. There are no lane keeping or lane keeping functions, nor an unconfirmed AEB function.
