This is the final production version of the BorgwardBX5 SUV for China, looking very racy in fiery red with a big black grille and sharp eyed headlights. The BX5 will be launched on the Chinese car market on March 24. Price will range from about 120.000 to 180.000 yuan.
We finally can clear up some of the confusion surrounding Haval’s ten trillion new cars. The car you see here was formerly known as the Haval F6. But it has now appeared as the “All New H6”, the successor of the best selling Haval H6 which sells up to 70.000 units a month.
However, a car that succeeds a car would be too simple for Haval. The current H6 therefore will continue to be sold alongside the new one, it will even get a new 1.3 turbocharged engine. The new H6 will be positioned slightly higher than the current car.
The best photos so far of the Zotye T700 SUV, the new flagship of the Zotye brand. It is the production version of the Zotye T600 S concept. Happily it is not a clone. There are influences of Range Rover visible but it isn’t as bad as with the Zotye SR9.
We have an early candidate for the 2017 Crash of the Year (COTY); with a Zotye SR9crashing into a Porsche Cayenne. The SR9 is very famous for being a clone of the Porsche Macan. This particular wine red example apparently wanted to be a Cayenne.
Things look bad for Hongqi as they stand now; the company really sells just one car and bar some government agencies nobody buys it. A very sad fate for this great and famous brand. Hongqi however is trying to turn the tide around with a tidal wave of new cars, including a bus, two sedans, and two SUVs.
The very first photos of an upcoming facelift for the Citroen C5 sedan in China. It will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show in April and launch on the Chinese car market soon thereafter. The facelift brings the C5 in line with the design of other new Citroens. It includes a new and extra shiny grille, new lights, and new bumpers.
Another new electric car for China: this is the Chery Tiggo 3X EV, complete with some blue in the headlights and a blue line in the grille. Blue is the color of green cars in China.
The Tiggo 3X EV is based on the Tiggo 3X. It seems as if the suspension of the EV was jacked up a bit, looking weird. First I thought the tires were smaller but they are 205/55R16 on both the 3X EV and the 3X.
Another new electric car for China: this is the Changhe Beidouxing X5E, complete with some blue in the headlights and a blue line around the grille. Blue is the color of green cars in China. The charging cap is handily located in the front fender. The Beidouxing X5E will hit the market sometime in H2.
New photos of the upcoming facelift for the Brilliance V3 crossover, showing off its heavenly shiny grille and even more shine around the headlights and around the fog lights. Blindingly stuff! The bumper got a lot bigger too. The facelifted V3 will be launched on the Chinese auto market in Q2.
This is likely going to be the craziest Chinese vehicle to launch this year. It is a new variant of the Beijing Auto BJ80, fitted with a lot of new body work and a partially new interior. It debuted last year as a semi-concept on the Guangzhou Auto Show, where it was called Riot Control Car. The yet nameless production car has slightly different lights and bumpers but it is otherwise very similar. And most interesting, it has an American connection.
