The B30 is the entry-level sedan in FAW’s Besturn lineup. It first appeared at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show in April as “Besturn A-Class”; the name was changed to Besturn B30 in July when the car was put on display at Changchun Motor Show. Deliveries will start on November 15, 2015.

Around 2010 FAW was exposed developing a compact car named Besturn B30, which however did not launch as expected. Instead, the FAW Oley was released in 2012 to fill the position of entry-level sedan. As the Oley has proved a flop, FAW re-launched the B30 in 2015. Although looking very different from the 2010 model, the 2016 B30 is believed by some to be derived from the same platform–Volkswagen’s PQ32. They consider the new B30 a derivative of the VW Bora (a Chinese variant of Jetta).

The 2016 B30 has a wheelbase of 2630mm and is 4625mm long, 1790mm wide, and 1500mm high. It is powered by an FAW-made petrol 1.6L engine (CA4GB16).
