The F3R is the two-box version of BYD F3, and therefore a derivative of Toyota Corolla. The exterior style of the hatchback, however, is clearly inspired by Buick Excelle HRV.

When first release in April 2007, the F3R was powered by a 1.5L engine of 78kW (Dong’an-Mitsubishi 4G15S) and only one gearbox option was provided, a 5-speed manual. In 2008, it gets an extra powertrain choice–a 1.6 liter (Dong’an-Mitsubishi 4G18) paired to a 4AT. The Mitsubishi 1.5L engine was replaced by one built by BYD in 2011 (BYD473QB 1.5L).

BYD stopped producing the F3R in 2012, leaving the slot to the G3R. 16,544 units were sold in 2011, and 1,350 in 2012.
