The B70 is a mid-size sedan slotted between the B50 and B90 in FAW’s Besturn lineup. The first-gen, which shares a platform with the first-gen Mazda6, was unveiled on April 23, 2006, in Beijing as "FAW C301." On August 18, 2006, it hit the market simply as "Besturn," as it was the first model to bear that name. The 2006-2011 models shared powertrains with the Mazda6 built by the joint venture of FAW-Mazda, which featured a 108kW 2.0L (LF) and 120kW 2.3L (L3) engine. The two engine options were dropped in 2012, replaced by an FAW-built 1.8 liter (ET3) shared with the B50.

FAW launched the re-designed B70 in the first half of 2014, which shares a platform with the second-gen Mazda6 (called "Ruiyi" in China). In additional to the standard sedan, a sports version may be offered, named "B70 RS."

The B70 posted disappointing sales in 2013, delivering only 7,903 units. Annual sales rose to 22,627 in 2014.
