Debuted as F3 Surui at the 2012 Beijing motor show, the F5 Suri is the second-gen BYD F3. It shares a platform with the Qin hybrid as well as the upcoming G5; the platform is an extended version of the one giving rise to the first-gen F3, a clone of Toyota Corolla. Production was located in Xi’an Shanxi.

Deliveries started on August 21, 2012, with two 1.5L engine and three gearbox options (DCT, 5MT, 6MT) being offered. BYD’s remote driving technology is sported on selected versions, allowing the driver who is no more than ten meters away from the car to start the engine and move the vehicle at a low speed using a special key.

In 2013, with 123,643 sales, the F5 Surui was the most popular BYD model and ranks 27th among all China-made two- or three-box sedans.

The nameplate "Surui" is used primarily in China, while "F5 Suri" targets overseas markets.

In 2014, 73,269 units of the Surui were sold.
