An impressive Beijing BJ80 Portal SUV was presented in China. In fact, this is a clone of the Hyundai, and its most hardcore version is the G500 4×4². This is reported by the CarNewsChina website.

Beijing BJ80 appeared back in 2017 and, in principle, its creators did not hide much that they copied the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Now have prepared an extreme version of it for especially heavy off-road driving.

Like the Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4², the Chinese Hyundai received portal bridges. They allowed increasing the clearance to an impressive 48 cm. Beijing BJ80 Portal is able to overcome water obstacles with a depth of 1.1 m.

In addition, the angle of entry has increased to 54.8, and the exit to 48. 20-inch off-road tires — for this purpose, it was necessary to install arch extenders. And they also replaced the bumpers and added diode optics to the roof.

The Chinese copy of the Hyundai is equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 with 280 hp and 8-speed automatic transmission. The Beijing BJ80 Portal has differential locks and an adjustable suspension in its arsenal.

While formally Beijing BJ80 Portal is a pre-production concept car, but in 2022 it will become serial. Of course, the SUV will rise in price compared to the initial BJ80 — up to about 75 thousand dollars. For a Chinese car, this is a lot, but a real Mercedes G500 4×4² of the new generation will cost over $200 thousand, that is, three times more.

However, not only Chinese automakers are engaged in copying Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The Indian company Force Motors has already released the second generation of its model in the style of the legendary Hyundai.
