These are the first pictures of BAW’s (Beijing Auto Work) C60 sedan that was caught under GLAD wraps just a few hours before its world premiere at the 2010 Beijing Motor Show that runs from April 23 to 27. It’s not hard to see the similarities between the C60 and the Saab 9-3 sedan.

Details remain sketchy on the C60 sedan but the Chinese media reports it will go on sale next year with a 1.8-liter petrol engine in both naturally aspirated and turbocharged versions.

BAW will also reveal the Saab 9-5 (previous generation) based C71 mid-size sedan at the Beijing show.
