Haima M3

A new Chinese subcompact sedan has entered our market. The new Haima M3, distributed by Haima Automobile Philippines, boasts the A-segment car platform developed by Haima Automobile's Shanghai R&D Center. According to the distributor's press material, it took Haima engineers three years to design this model.

Haima Automobile Philippines, incidentally, is part of the Laus Auto Group. "Haima," meanwhile, is a brand name derived from combining "Hainan" and "Mazda." Haima, as you may have guessed, started life as a joint venture between the Japanese automaker and the Hainan government in China.

Touted as a "new-generation" car, the M3 (we imagine this sounds nauseating to BMW fans) is powered by a 112hp and 147Nm variable-valve-timing engine whose displacement we couldn't find on the company's official website. The only variant available now is the M3 Comfort 699, offered with an introductory discount of P30,000 and priced at P669,000.

Interested? There are already Haima dealerships in San Fernando, Dau, Baguio, Calasiao, Urdaneta and Bataan if you want to see the M3 in the metal.

And oh, is it just us or does the M3 look like a Vios with a touch of Subaru?
