BYD L3 sedan

The L3 from BYD Philippines is a compact sedan with solid features that enhance its size and elevate it to the stature of bigger passenger cars. Full, powered controls, a complete infotainment system and smart keyless operation put a modern feel on advanced engineering highlighted by its Euro 4 compliant 1.5L engine. With variable valve lift and timing technology, the engine burns less fuel while delivering impressive, uncompromised power. Most of the potential torque is already available from the start, just as soon as you step on the gas, and quickly rises as you accelerate to handle either city traffic or highway distances.

Power, on-tap
Experience the power of the L3's 107hp 1.5liter BYD473QE engine, developed in-house and mated to a crisp 5-speed manual gearbox or an advanced 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Efficient power

Featuring variable valve lift (VVL) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology, the 1.5L 473QE aluminum engine meets power expectations for its displacement while breaking new ground with its efficiency. 

 

The modern engine offers peak power of 107hp at 5,800rpm and peak torque of 107lb-ft at 4,800rpm--enough to push the big sedan up to a maximum speed of 170km/h, but while still promising as much as 16km/l efficiency in city driving.

High, stable platform

With high minimum ground clearance of 170mm, the L3 sedan has the posture to handle rough road patches as well as wet weather hazards.  And with its long 2,615mm wheelbase mounted on McPherson struts and a slightly wider tread up front, and a torsion beam suspension with trailing arm in the rear, the big sedan's handling from it's high clearance remains surprisingly smooth and stable even when cornering.


Protection for all

Impact protection for all vehicle occupants with twin SRS airbags and 3-point seat belts for all five passengers.

Two-channel ABS with EBD

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) maintains tire traction through hard braking, and while constantly monitoring weight changes caused by varying passenger and cargo loads.

VMP steering force adjustment

With Variable Multiple Power-Steering, hydraulic assistance variably decreases as the vehicle accelerates, making steering inputs more precise at higher speeds.
