BAIC BJ40: Thinking of Spending Rs.7.6 million on this jeep? Watch this Video First.

Many have compared it with the Jeep Wrangler. It certainly has an uncanny resemblance to the iconic off-road SUV. The fact that you can remove its doors, roof and fold its front screen just as in Wrangler only helps one compare the two. 

But Wrangler or not, BAICs latest offering – BJ40 has got the jeep lovers talking. Some would even go to the extent of claiming that it’s more comfortable than the Wrangler. 

This joint Sazgar-BAIC venture is a 2.2 ton monster that is a tough off-road but gentle on-road vehicle. It can be said that it has got just the right mix of an SUV and a jeep.
