Known as a clone of the ninth-gen Toyota Corolla, the F3 is compact sedan built by BYD Auto. It was the second model released by the Shenzhen-based automaker, the first being the Flyer supermini. Perhaps the most successful copycat car in history, the F3 almost single-handedly launched BYD’s auto business, turning the battery-maker into a top-ten car-producer in a few short year. Released in September 2005, it sold over 50,000 units in the first year and over 700,000 units by August 2010. Building on the success, and platform, of the F3, BYD has released several compacts, the F3R and G3R hatchbacks, the G3 and L3 sedans, and the F3DM hybrids.

The re-designed F3 was launched in April 2012, bearing the nameplate "Surui," and hit showrooms in August. The Surui has since been sold alongside the F3.

Annual sales were 83,175 in 2013 and in 110,293 2014.
