Light Weight, High Power
The 3-cylinder 1.0L BYD371QA engine developed in-house by BYD features multi-point sequential fuel injection through a 12-valve DOHC system, delivering 67hp of peak power and 66lb-ft of peak torque.
On the light 870kg F0 hatchback, those numbers translate into smart acceleration and a maximum speed of 151km/h, while still managing to deliver fuel efficiency of as much as 22km/l.
McPherson struts with stabilizer bar and a slightly wider tread up front, and a torsion beam suspension with trailing arm in the rear, lets the F0 hatchback take corners very assertively.
A squat wheelbase geometry and responsive, hydraulically assisted steering, makes the F0 hatchback an agile performer.
