TCY Motors Sdn Bhd unveiled BAIC’s new SUV model, the BAIC X5511, during a ceremony at its showroom in Lambak Industries.
Baiduri Finance Head of Sales Division Haji Muhd Ali bin Begawan Mudim Haji Metussin, and BIBD At-Tamwil Berhad Head of Marketing and Public Relations Asharul bin Norshari Kamaluddin unveiled the Luxury model.
TCY Operation Manager Lim Hong Thai and Perbadanan Tabung Amanah Islam Brunei (Perbadanan TAIB) Manager Motor Vehicle Financing Unit Saadah binti Haji Mohd Zanai unveiled the Honor model.
Meanwhile, Perbadanan TAIB Sales Executive officer Shahrin bin Haji Mohd Yassin and TAIB Deputy Head of Marketing and Public Relations Muhd Azizulilah bin Haji Uthman unveiled the Fashion model.
The three specifications are equipped with minimalist-design equipment and futuristic elements and can be recognised by the “BEIJING” lettering on the front hood and the tailgate.
Designers of the BAIC Modeling Centre named the new design language of the X55ll “Diamond Stars”, as it shows the flow of light and shadow through the wormhole and shadow effect inspired by Interstellar.
On the front and rear lighting of X55ll, the sculpturing attractive LED ‘Diamond’ gives a Star Trail feeling design. The door handles on the Honor and Luxury are automatically flushed into the door when not used and will reveal when the car is unlocked. This helps reduce wind noise and resistance with fuel efficiency and a comfortable, quiet ride.
An immersive space capsule experience inspired by the minimalist console of the Space Dragon spaceship is featured in the interior design of X5511 with sporty and comfortable seats fitted into the car, and the second row provides spacious legroom.
Passengers can enjoy a beautiful night sky view with the giant panoramic roof, which will automatically close if it detects rain. The auto sensor also applies to the door’s windows. The cockpit features a futuristic look, with the control Screen providing any information needed in the car with a 10.25-inch LCD instrument screen, and 10.1-inch Central comes as standard in the X55ll.
For the Luxury spec, additional features include an Ambience Light allowing the driver to set a wide range of colour selections to match their driving mood.
The X55ll is powered by a 1.5-litre Turbo-engine that produces responsive torque power at 305Nm, and 185 Horsepower with a 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Gearbox.
All BAIC/BEIJING Models come with a standard three-year or 10,000km warranty. Several choices of colour are available for this model: Red, Platinum Grey, Silver Grey, White, and Yellow.
