The G3 is a compact sedan built by BYD on the platform that underpins the F3 and L3. It was developed as a larger and upgraded version of the F3, known as a clone of Toyota Corolla. BYD unveiled the G3 in Ji’nan, Shandong, in September 2009 and put in on sale the next month. At the Guangzhou Auto Show in December 2010, a hatchback version of the compact was launched, named G3R. The G3 and G3R are built at BYD’s plant in Xi’an, Shannxi.

When released in 2009, two engine choices were provided, a Mitsubishi 1.5L (4G15S) and a BYD 1.8L (483QA). The Mitsubishi one was replaced by a BYD 1.5L (BYD473QE) in 2011. In 2013, models with a BYD-made dual clutch transmission (DCT) were released, adding to 5MT and CVT ones.

In 2013, BYD delivered 7,030 of the G3 sedan. In 2014, only 2,794 sales were recorded.
