FAW might not be a well-known name in the passenger car market just yet but the Chinese carmaker is certainly counting on a growing presence at our end of the world.
For starters, the company is erecting a factory in the new Coega industrial zone near Port Elizabeth and while it'll initially churn out trucks, passenger vehicles and LCVs are part of the long-term manufacturing plan.
Back to the here and now, FAW is looking for a bigger slice of the affordable MPV market with an upgraded version its recently-introduced Sirius MPV.
It's not by coincidence that the Sirius has a familiar look about it - it is in fact based on the previous-generation Toyota Avanza.
That said, FAW has lent some of its own flavour to the Sirius, particularly at the front end, and now they've added a 1.5-litre petrol engine option.
