The BYD G6 is a midsize four-door saloon produced by the Chinese manufacturer BYD launched in September 2011.[1]

G6[edit]

The G6 is available with a choice of two four-cylinder petrol engines: a BYD designed all-aluminum-alloy 1.5 L (1497 cc) turbo (called TID) producing 113 kW (154 PS; 152 bhp) and 240 N⋅m (177 lb⋅ft) mated with a 6-speed dual clutch automatic[2] or a Mitsubishi 483QB 2.0L (1991 cc) producing 103 kW (140 PS; 138 bhp) and 186 N⋅m (137 lb⋅ft) with a 5-speed manual.

Sirui[edit]

Just like the Surui trim of BYD F3, Sirui is a more premium version of the G6, with different styling and configurations.
