Bayan Automotive Industries Corporation (BAIC), the exclusive local distributor of BAIC vehicles from China, recently held an event at its flagship showroom in Makati. The agenda was to introduce its new contenders for the hotly-contested compact crossover and MPV segments; the BJ20 and M50S, respectively.
The BAIC BJ20 is styled to evoke a sense of adventure with its rugged exterior trim. Off the bat, it presents a boxy yet well-rounded body that’s accented with blacked out panels up front and in back. All these are given justice by what is perhaps one of the most enticing features it has in store… that 250 mm ground clearance. With this, drivers can tackle shin-deep flooded roads with ease and peace of mind, a much-needed necessity these days with all the rain and floods hampering the metro’s busy roads.
