Giant grille with shiploads of chrome for Bling-obsessed Chinese car buyers. Blue car seems to be top-spec with fog lights and alloys.

    Nice looking, so much more substantial than the fragile Family. But what’s underneath – who’s platform? Is it finally Haima’s this time?

    Front fascia, especially chrome grille and roof line strongly inspired by Buick Regal.

    Like the front, even if it’s a blatant Regal rip-off. Back is really bland.

    Frustratingly mixed. It has potential but it’s spoilt by having a body too long and wide for the wheel base, being under-wheeled, and horrible cheap alloys.

    Front 3/4 by far the best view. Rear 3/4 by far the worst. Not too bad straight on from front (although as said above a bit of a Buick copy) or rear.

    Will be interesting to see the quality of the interior. It needs to be good.

    Much better in darker colours, looks bloated and badly proportioned in white.

    I second that statement, plus, where does this leave the Haima M6? If you ask me, it is the better looking car of the two.

    Looks like a buick/hyundai.

    Yeah, pretty much a Hyundai/Buick mashup.
