It is true that in Europe, and even in Latin America, BAIC is a secondary brand, but it is no less true that we are talking about a best-selling brand in Asia and we must not forget that half of the world's inhabitants live in Asia, and of course especially in China.
Despite the fact that there are many examples of good work in the Chinese automotive world, we continue to approach models from that country with the reluctance that comes with knowing the old cases of poor quality. This Senova X55 certainly erases the reticence at the first glance, what a car!
With Mitsubishi engine and 148 hp, the 1.5 engine of the Baic Senova X55 does not leave indifferent, the ability to be surprised is something that we must keep in mind when we face this model.
As always in the versions that can run on LPG keeps the gasoline system intact, adding the possibility of using gas as fuel, doubling the range of the vehicle without reducing the capabilities of the same. Which are already very promising with its 148 hp for a car of good size and sufficient performance.
It is not an urban vehicle but it has a correct performance in mixed use even with more than acceptable consumption if we use LPG as fuel, but the pocket is going to suffer, and the air of your city will not benefit from the reduced emissions of the vehicle.
The Mercedes Benz electronics are noticeable in a large and comfortable display, as well as intuitive, which will not disappoint you if you do not want it to sound like a Madonna concert, because Madonna herself is not included in the extras. As for what is included, we can say that it consists of all the usual extras in large SUVs like this. ABS, rear camera,...
Of course to drive with LPG is a good choice, if you do not have a pump that suits you and you have to drive with gasoline is a model a bit spendy. But come on, that neither an Audi Q3 is a lighter in terms of expense and size is comparable. Look at it, you will not be disappointed and you will probably think about it before discarding it, and there are chances that you will accept it.
