BESTUNE is a leading Chinese vehicle brand launched and distributed in Bahrain by Al Haddad International Motors. Bill Grieve test drove the Bestune B70S and was pleasantly surprised to experience luxury brand standards and sports car performance embodied in a classic shape with incredible service support and performance commitments from the manufacturer. 

The words “Made in China” resonate with consumers today, offering quality, luxury, cutting edge technology and real value for money with extended support almost beyond normal market industry competition comprehension.

A crossover between the B70 Sedan and the T99. The B70s front wheel drive, comes with Dagger-axe type 2.0 split lights and a Flying buttress design spoiler. The front of the B70S offers a very aggressive look with a “beast claw” aerodynamic kit and electrifying rear light animations and complex rear-spoiler unit are standard on all variants of B70S making the car very sleek and futuristic.

Engine options: 
170 hp 1.5 turbo mated to a 7-speed DCT 
224 hp 2.0 turbo mated to a 6-speed automated manual.

The B70S offers control and stability excellence and has a “double E circular body” integrating eight safety systems, 23 active safety technologies and is also equipped with FAW’s latest FEEA2.0 electronic and electrical architecture, greatly enhancing the B70S’s advantages in safety, intelligent connection and overall driving experience.

The interior of the B70S has racing-grade interiors and a high technology cabin area. The electronic seat functionality design of the seats emphasises the racing heavy wrapping feeling, the low profile is full of sport flavour, and it offers an abundant 440L of storage space.

The scepter-like electronic gear lever makes driving easier and mounted on the dashboard is a Dual 12.3-inch large LCD screen and an 8-inch touchscreen suspended air conditioning panel. The right dashboard uses ambient light LEDs.

The new B70S also features advanced technologies such as Level-2 intelligent driving system functions, intelligent key, electric-powered tailgate, 360-degree panoramic images, and other functions to meet users’ expectations for a luxury and high-performance experience.

The Bahrain This Month test drive was conclusive – this is an amazingly comfortable vehicle that performs well and holds onto the road as if it was mounted on rails - a real object of desire.
