The BYD Atto 3 undoubtedly has the fanciest interior in the category. It looks more like a concept car from the inside. The dashboard gets a wavy pattern and is accentuated by the dumbbell-inspired aircon vents. The D-cut steering wheel gets blue leather wrapping with brushed aluminum inserts. The car comes with a compact 5-inch all-digital instrument cluster and a larger rotating 12.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Furthermore, there's an airplane-inspired drive mode selector, which is flanked by a host of other buttons.

In terms of equipment, it comes loaded with Auto aircon, a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat, a 4-way adjustable passenger seat, multi-color ambient lighting, a powered tailgate, and a 360-degree camera, among others. Safety features include seven airbags, ABS, ESC, traction control, hill hold assist, and ADAS.

BYD Atto 3: Powertrain, Battery

The BYD Atto 3 gets an electric motor that generates 201hp and 310nm of torque delivered to the front wheels. This is enough to propel the 1.7-ton car from 0-100km/h in about 7.3 seconds. It packs in a large 60.48kWh battery pack, which is claimed to offer a driving range of up to 521km (ARAI certified).

BYD claims that its 80kW DC fast charger can charge the Atto 3 from zero to 80 percent in about 50 minutes. However, the home 7kW AC charger will take about 10 hours to top up fully. BYD says you can use the Atto 3 to power or charge other electrical appliances.
