Exterior wise the A50 sedan boasts a nice & clean design language. It has a 3-bar grille embedded with FAW winged logo up front, an integrated rear spoiler at the back with a bumper that completely hides the tail pipe, as well as black claddings under front and rear bumpers & the side skirts.

For the sake of comparison its bigger in dimensions compared to the 5th gen Honda City we have here, but slightly shorter in length & width but stands taller than the 11th gen Toyota Corolla. The 2610mm wheelbase again sits between the City & Corolla.
