GENEVA, Switzerland, 3 March, 2009 - HSO Motors Europe, General Sole Importer of Brilliance Brand in Europe, presents the BS4 Wagon in Geneva – a sportive station wagon with a length of about 4.70 meters whose significant and independent design was drafted in collaboration with Pininfarina.

The platform is almost identical with the sedan, what is being embodied in the identical wheelbase of 2790 millimeters. From the B-pillar off the sideline of the Wagon is different. For instance already the backdoors do not equal because the roof line runs lightly sloping to underline the dynamic character of the BS4 Wagon. Accounting a trunk capacity of already remarkable 430 liters for the sedan, there can be stowed considerably more in the luggage compartment of the wagon at a maximum length of 1,70 meters. Thereby a variable utilisation of the trunk is provided by a 1/3 to 2/3 split rear seat.

Professor Hans-Ulrich Sachs, Managing Partner of the General Sole Importer for Brilliance in Europe, stated at the arrival of the show car in Bremerhaven: „With this body version of the BS4, people are finding favour to Brilliance Brand, who do not want to abdicate a successful design at a very attractive price.“ „Style and Lifestyle are not dependent on the price,“ knows Prof. Sachs.

The prototype being exhibited at the Geneva Auto Show will be moved by a new developed 1.8-Liter-four-cylinder Turbo engine, that performs 125 kW/170 HP. Through a shortly staged 6-speed-manual transmission the power is being transmitted to the front wheels. Details of the series-configuartion are not yet available.
