JAC is a mid-sized Chinese brand (350.000 annual passenger cars) which has a successful range of crossovers, most notably the Refine S3, and exports to a great number of developing markets in Asia, Africa and South-America. They’ve had the Refine A60 under development for about three years before its official launch and it has already had its first facelift before reaching the market. Sales finally started in December 2016 with an impressive chrome grille, but an already outdated interior, showing the long development period. At over 5 meters long (5.005/1.890/1.503mm with a 2.915mm wheelbase) it’s a true flagship sedan for the brand. Power comes from a modern 1,5-liter turbocharged engine with 174hp and 250Nm of torque, mated to an equally modern 6-speed Dual Clutch automatic transmission, and a 2-liter turbo with 190hp and 280Nm of torque will follow later.
