BYD ATTO 3 Review

Having entered the UK market earlier this year, the all-electric ATTO 3 has made great impressions in the motor trade.

The first New Energy Vehicle (NEVs) to launch in the UK from Chinese electric brand BYD (Build Your Dreams), the ATTO 3 comes from a history of innovative electric development.

The comfort and practicality make it the perfect family car, with the unique and sleek design providing you with an individual drive.

The expressive sloping incline of the body delivers a sporty and aerodynamic design. The dynamic alloy wheels contribute to the unique and futuristic styling of the vehicle, making it instantly recognisable for what it is.

The headlights and continuous taillights add to the sleekness of the design, while the wider beam of light exposure provides a very practical function in improving vision and safety when driving at night. With the unique steering light, the BYD ATTO 3 has been designed with your safety as a priority.

The interior of the BYD ATTO 3 brings ‘affordable luxury’ to mind.

The common touch points of the steering wheel and door pulls have been trimmed in soft touch materials for comfort, while the switches and buttons ensure finding common functions much more convenient – another example of safety and comfort.

The cabin is spacious and comfortable, which is imitated in the back seats.

Thanks to the design of the e-Platform 3.0, the floor in the rear is entirely flat. The lack of centre tunnel provides ample leg room for rear passengers, and the boot provides a competitive 440 litres.

However, the boot capacity increases to a standard 1,338 litres with the rear seats folded flat, providing functionality and practicality.

Ergonomic sports seats provide a fantastically comfortable drive, especially with the heated seats and electronically adjustable positioning.

The 15.6-inch infotainment system is a strong contender among its rivals, with ease of use and responsive results to the touch screen.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to link your mobile phone with the media system, accessing supported apps from third-party providers such as Spotify.

In another innovative and unique design choice, the infotainment screen allows you to change its orientation at the touch of a button.

The landscape screen is considerably easier to use when selecting media functions, and the portrait screen is perfect for sat-nav instructions.

Intelligent Voice Control allows you to keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Experience luxury with the BYD cloud service on APP, which acts as your own personal butler.

The OTA function keeps your system upgraded, ensuring you’re up-to-date for the best possible service.

The BYD ATTO 3 has a competitive range at 260 miles, and top-up is standard, charging from 30% to 80% battery in just 29 minutes.

With the ATTO 3 undeniably designed with comfort in mind, the suspension is more than adept at absorbing the results of uneven roads. It’s happy to take corners with precise positioning, and it offers a smooth acceleration from 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds.
