The G3R is a compact hatchback built by BYD at its Xi’an plant. As the two-box variant of the G3 sedan, it was launched at the 2010 Guangzhou Auto Show and hit showrooms in April 2011, replacing the F3R. It shares engines options–a 1.5 and 1.8 liter–with the sedan, but skips the DCT (dual clutch transmission) found on the latter.

Despite deep price cuts, the G3R has been poorly received. Only 3,222 units were sold in 2012, and 582 in 2013, according to China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), making the hatchback one of the least popular BYD models.
