The Zhongxing Urban Ark debuted as a concept on the Beijing Auto Show in April last year.  There were two versions: one with a more round front fascia known by its code name C12 and this much straighter version known as C11. Zhongxing apparently decided to go for the C11. Power will come from a Mitsubishi-sourced 1.5 with 113hp and 147nm, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Size: 4000/1650/1750.

    “Is that Ssangyong Motor Company? You know that award for the Worlds Ugliest Car we gave you a few years ago for the Rodius? Can we have it back please? We’ve found a new home for it in China.”

    Front end looks like a Cherokee in a tight squeeze.
    Back end looks like they went for the cost-down version.

    Originality for its own sake rarely works.
