    Well the bits that we can see look pretty good. The car needs a MASSIVE improvement in perceived quality too though. The interior is currently unacceptable for a car with pretentions of being in any way “premium”.

    Here’s what they do, kill Besturn and Tianjin-Xiali and have these brands form their corporate lineup.

    Olay: Cheap and cheerful

    Haima: Mainstream

    Hongqi: Premium/Luxury

    Then all the stillborn projects they can sell off to other Chinese or foreign brands for a profit to create money to develop their own platforms and engine lineup.
