The updated FAW Bestune B70 liftback is coming to Russia

The five-door has a different appearance and interior. We haven’t talked about the technology of our version yet. At home, the car is now presented only with a two-liter turbo engine.

The current generation FAW Bestune B70 model debuted in 2020, turning from a sedan into a liftback. Last year, the five-door reached Russia, and in China it was updated in the same 2023. By the way, the transformed car was announced as the next generation, although it is still a restyling. So now such a liftback has been announced for our market: sales in the Russian Federation will start in the summer.

The Bestune B70 has been redesigned in appearance, it has been designed in a new corporate style, which has already been tried on by the Bestune T77 SUVs (but the pre-reform version is still available in Russia) and the Bestune T99, as well as the fresh Bestune T90 crossover and the Bestune M9 minivan. The five-door received a family radiator grille with horizontal shiny stripes. There are no more “Cadillac” optics: the liftback has narrow running lights, under them there are compact blocks of main headlights, and the rear lights are in the form of a single block. Finally, the B70 received a new Bestune brand logo.

The Russian release notes that the FMA “cart” has been modified – in particular, thanks to this “the characteristics have improved pendants.” After restyling, the length of the Bestune B70 increased by 45 mm to 4855 mm. The remaining dimensions have not changed: width – 1840 mm, height – 1455 mm, wheelbase – 2800 mm. In China, the model is equipped with 18- or 19-inch wheels.

The separate climate control touch panel was removed, and instead there is a narrow touch strip under the central air deflectors. The tunnel also became different, in addition, a compact transmission selector appeared.
