What SA Motoring Experts Say About The New BAIC B40

“The BAIC B40 Plus is a good car for families or individuals that want enough refinement in a vehicle for the daily commute. But also want to benefit from the space and capabilities required for that trip which takes them off the beaten path.”

“The BAIC B40 Plus is not fitted with any differential locks, but rather uses electronic sensors to individually equalise wheel-rotation when travelling over extremely undulated ground. This proved quite effective when negotiating very difficult rock inclines.“

“At this price point, the list of standard features is acceptable and the mid-spec City Hunter seems to offer the best value for money in the range. There are some fun colour choices too; the Military Green and Sky Blue hues are especially likely to grab people’s attention!”
