BAIC Philippines Set to Showcase at MIAS 2024

Just a few weeks after its exclusive preview for the media and its partners, BAIC Philippines is now set to dazzle audiences at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) 2024, unveiling its brilliant lineup of SUVs and crossovers to a much larger crowd of automotive aficionados and car seekers. United Asia Automotive Group Inc. (UAAGI), the multi-brand auto distributor will be taking the helm in bringing these remarkable vehicles to the Filipino market and laying down the challenge to “Dare to drive big”.

Here is the roster of BAIC masterpieces everyone should be looking forward to this coming April 4-7, 2024 at the World Trade Center:

X55 Verve

The eye-catching X55 Verve is a contender in the highly competitive compact crossover segment. With numerous crossovers already available in the Philippine market, the growing number of enthusiasts are spoiled for choice,  but the X55 Verve is here to shake up the segment with class-leading features in a noticeably big and handsome package. Equipped with a complete suite of ADAS features including traffic jam assist and automatic parking assist, as well as hands-free power tailgate, and most importantly, 188 hp and 305 Nm of torque from an award-winning engine that is proud to be one of the most efficient in the market. 

X7 Grandeza

The show-stopping X7 Grandeza builds on the merits of the X55 Verve, especially the award-winning powertrain, and adds exquisitely luxurious appointments in an even larger and more spacious cabin. With the X7 Grandeza, you are provided with first-class accommodations, as you are pampered in heated and ventilated ottoman seats with a massage function, that are larger and more comfortable than the European models they were benchmarked on. Of course, the full host of ADAS and infotainment features that would be expected from a luxury car are also present in this model. The X7 Grandeza is undoubtedly the most luxurious crossover available in its segment today. 

B40 Ragnar

As a testament to BAIC’s heritage of toughness and reliability, the BAIC Series 40 Ragnar SUV is equipped to tackle any off-road challenge with confidence. The B40 Ragnar can take you where you want to go with a 2.0L Aucan turbo diesel engine with 380 NM of torque coupled to an 8-speed ZF transmission and a BorgWarner four-wheel drive system. Memories of your journey are instantly recorded by the built-in camera mounted on the digital rear view mirror. You can take out the removable roof panels and take in the beauty of the outdoors when you go on your adventures with the BAIC Series 40 Ragnar SUV.

B80 Wagon

The series 80 Wagon is likewise equipped to impress, and to conquer all roads. Equipped with a 3.0L twin-turbocharged petrol engine producing 280 hp and 420 Nm of torque, mounted to a ZF transmission and electronic four-wheel drive system, the Series 80 Wagon can take you where you want to go quickly, powerfully, and in full luxury. With a class-leading 39-degree approach angle, 25-degree ramp angle, and 33-degree departure angle, fear is not part of the series 80 Wagon’s vocabulary. 

And of course, as a true luxury SUV, this BAIC model envelopes you in a nappa leather interior and surrounds you with a powerful sound system with built-in subwoofer. The series 80 Wagon’s iconic and imposing design is a nod to BAIC’s history of producing military vehicles. 

B60 Beaumont

The BAIC B60 Beaumont is a mountain of a beast in the metal. Measuring more than five meters long, this 7-seater showcases all of the latest BAIC technologies in a tough and massive, beautifully sculpted body. The series 60 Beaumont SUV will be the first in the market to have a 2.0L diesel hybrid powertrain mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This SUV also features 9 drive modes and a full array of ADAS features, to ensure optimal performance on all kinds of terrain.

The interior appointments are a feast for the senses with features such as a four-screen infotainment integration, 10.25” digital instrument cluster, 12.8” infotainment screen, smartphone mirroring, wireless charging, digital rear view mirror with integrated recording camera, WIFI hotspot, 220V power supply, 540-degree panoramic and undercarriage camera, and all topped off with a panoramic electric sunroof. For audiophiles, the B60 Beaumont will definitely not disappoint. With a 12+1 Infinity speaker system and active noise canceling, you can enjoy library silence, soft classical music, to head-thumping hard rock and anything in between.

BAIC at the UAAGI Performance Center

As anticipation builds for the MIAS 2024, BAIC PH invites automotive enthusiasts and industry insiders alike to witness brilliance and boldness at the BAIC Colonnade booth, and get a firsthand experience behind the wheel of BAIC vehicles at the UAAGI Performance Center–a unified test drive arena for UAAGI’s auto brands designed to provide Filipino car buyers with an immersive experience beyond static displays.

It comprises a technical 4×4 track which accentuates the strengths of UAAGI’s more rugged vehicle offerings; and, for a more dynamic experience, a thoughtfully calculated mini-gymkhana awaits.

Aside from the state-of-the-art BAIC PH main display, guests will also find the distributor’s express lane of approvals under the umbrella of UAAGI Business Center, housing the brand’s finance and dealership negotiation team. The UAAGI Business Center does not only feature faster transactions but also highlights flexible payment terms with the BPI program complementing BAIC PH offers.
