The Russian representative office presented a new product at a special event in Moscow: the restyled B70 will go on sale in the summer, and, according to preliminary data, it will cost a little more than the pre-reform model (from 2.4 million rubles). The exterior design of the liftback was modernized: the radiator grille was made more minimalistic, and the front optics were made two-level. Changes also affected the interior – a new multimedia system, a different transmission joystick and a modernized central tunnel appeared.

In traffic, the restyled B70 can be recognized by the strict horizontal slats in the radiator grille and the backlit logo, from which thin luminous lines radiate in both directions. FAW claims that thanks to a more streamlined silhouette, it was possible to reduce the aerodynamic drag coefficient of the liftback, which had a positive effect on efficiency.

Higher quality materials are used in the interior decoration, and a single console has appeared on the front panel, combining two screens: a seven-inch instrument panel and a 12.3-inch multimedia system screen.

The range of engines remains the same. The updated B70 will be offered with turbo engines of 1.5 and 2.0 liters already familiar to Russians. The first develops 160 horsepower and works with a seven-speed robotic gearbox, while the power of the second is 217 horsepower. It is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The maximum speed of the basic liftback is 200 kilometers per hour, it accelerates from zero to “hundreds” in 9.3 seconds, and fuel consumption in the combined cycle is 6.8 liters per 100 kilometers. The B70 with a 217-horsepower unit can reach speeds of up to 230 kilometers per hour, covers the first “hundred” in 7.9 seconds, and consumes 7.1 liters of fuel.

B70 is the most popular model in the FAW passenger car line in Russia. At the end of 2023, it accounted for 40 percent of the brand’s total sales, with 2,732 copies sold.
