BAHRAIN is the first country in the GCC where the all-new sporty JAC J7 has been launched with a special Ramadan offer.
The International Motor Trading Agency (IMTA), a subsidiary of the Khalil Ebrahim Kanoo Group, unveiled the J7 Sportback, the latest car from China’s Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Company (JAC Motors), at its showroom in Tubli yesterday.
The J7 comes with a 1.5-litre petrol turbo-charged engine which produces 148 horsepower, and is available with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The launch was attended by IMTA president Suzan Salman Kanoo, vice-president K N Singh, and JAC Motors showroom supervisor Aqeel Ali.
“This is one of the biggest cars in its range in terms of its specifications and size,” said Mr Singh, during the launch ceremony.
“One of the highlights of the vehicle is the low fuel consumption and because of that there are fewer emissions.
“This is the first model to be launched in the GCC here in Bahrain, the second is going to be in Oman, because we already tested the vehicle here and it’s being tested in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait now for heat conditions. So, we are the first in the GCC to unveil it,” he said.
The J7 also boasts the largest body in its class, propped up by front and rear independent suspension in a hatchback shape bringing greater convenience.
“The model has an all-new sport design with many features such as leather seats, cruise control, volume control, a large screen, push-to-start ignition and the windows automatically roll up when the car is locked in,” said Mr Ali.
“We have a special offer during Ramadan which is BD5,595 which covers insurance, registration, underseal as well as a service package for three years or 60,000kms and JAC warranty of five years or 150,000kms; after Ramaadn the price will go up by BD500,” he added.
All JAC J7 versions are equipped with automatic functioning LED headlamps, daytime running lights, power side-view mirrors with heating, height adjustment of the steering wheel and remote-controlled keyless entry.
Meanwhile, the 1.6-litre SUV JAC S3 is available at a starting price of BD3,995, while the JAC S4, 1.5-litre turbo SUV starts at BD4,995 including VAT, rust-proofing, till the end of Ramadan.
