BAIC has launched the B40 Plus SUV in South Africa, at a starting price of R549,500.

This buys you the entry-level B40 Plus with a 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel engine and standard feature-set.

“The B40 PLUS which has its roots in the military, has over 60 years of heritage to draw on. It has been tested in almost every condition, altitude, terrain, and application over this time leading to the claim that it was born in the battlefield and perfected in the real world,” said BAIC.

Standard equipment

Standard features in the new BAIC B40 Plus include a dual-zone air conditioner, six-speaker sound system, colour-coded upholstery, removable hard-top roof, LED daytime running lights, and reclining rear seats.

The more expensive specifications are then treated to a customisable instrument cluster, bluetooth-capable infotainment display, leather seats, reverse camera, and park distance control sensors.

Furthermore, every B40 Plus comes with ABS and an electronic parking brake, while the upper trim levels also get emergency brake assist, traction control, and hill ascent and descent control.

Under the hood, the BAIC B40 Plus is fitted with either a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol or 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine, with the petrol option featuring a six-speed automatic and diesel option a six-speed manual gearbox.

The petrol engine pushes out 160kW and 320Nm, while the diesel generates 110kW and 350Nm.

“The selectable 4WD system with mechanical central transfer case and rear differential lock allows driver control over how the engine is powered, dependent on the terrain, conditions, and requirements,” said the company.

In addition, ground clearance for the B40 Plus comes in at 210mm, approach angle at 37 degrees, break-over angle at 23 degrees, and departure angle at 31 degrees.

Price

The BAIC B40 Plus will be available in five specifications spanning three trim lines – standard, City Hunter, and Champion – with the top-end Champion model only being sold in petrol guise.

“The range starts from R549,500 and goes up to R629,500 for the top-of-the-range offering,” said BAIC.

Each purchase includes a 5-year/120,000km warranty, with optional service plans available at an additional cost.
