The new Lincoln Continental has been launched on the Chinese car market. China is only the third country in the world to get the new Lincoln flagship after the United States and Canada, underscoring the vital importance of China for the Lincoln brand.
Sales are on the up even without the Continental. In the third quarter of this year Lincoln sold 20,988 cars in China, plus 191% compared with the same period in 2016. Lincoln is getting very close to Infiniti which sold 29,000 cars in Q3. They are catching up with Cadillac (77,028), but still very far away from Audi (440,023), BMW (371,976) and Mercedes-Benz (344,791).

The SouEast DX3 has been launched on the Chinese auto market, and the Pininfarina designed compact SUV has become quite a fine looking car. It comes with a black roof, proper roof rails, mean looking lights, a sculpted bonnet, a small grille, and a racy lower bumper.
The Beijing Auto BJ20 has been launched on the Chinese car market and we like it a lot. It just looks brilliant in its own kind of way, daring and a bit crazy. A far departure from the conservative design Beijing Auto normally applies on its other vehicles. And the market seems to dig it; I have seen a lot of them on the road already. Price for all this pretty starts at 96.800 yuan and ends at 139.800 yuan ($14.300 – 20.600).
