Spectacular Spy Shots showing the all new Volkswagen Teramont SUV completely naked in China, inside and out. The Teramont is the production version of the Volkswagen CrossBlue concept. It is a large seven-seat SUV that will be positioned between the Tiguan and the Touareg. The Teramont will debut in November on the L.A. Auto Show in the U.S. and on the Guangzhou Auto Show in China.
We have a boatload of new photos of the infamous Zotye SR8 Porsche Macan clone from China, showing a whole flock of the things on a factory parking lot, and they come in every color. The Zotye SR8 will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in early September and launch on the Chinese car market soon thereafter.
But there is bigger news: we hear that Zotye has decided to rename the SR8 to… SR9. No official confirmation yet but Zotye does this kind of fuzzy all the time, so we wouldn’t be surprised.
And here we have the new Chevrolet Cavalier for China, it will be launched on the Chinese auto market on September 2, featuring a big ‘ol grille and LED lights. The Cavalier is not entirely new. It is basically the previous generation Chevrolet Cruze sedan in a new skin.
Zotye is on a roll, launching one model after another, and then another one again. A few years ago many said (not us) that Zotye was going to die. But die they didn’t! Their EVs and SUVs are selling in great numbers, the brand is growing, and it finds buyers even in the big cities like Beijing.
Their latest new car is the Zotye T700, the production version of the Zotye T600 S concept. The T700 will be the flagship of the Zotye brand, until something bigger arrives. Happily it is not a clone. There are influences of Range Rover visible, but it isn’t as bad as with the Damai X7 and the Zotye SR8.
The latter was called T700 during its development process. Zotye, it seems, is getting confused; too many new cars and too many new names.
The best Spy Shots so far of the new Yema T80 SUV, the largest SUV Yema has ever made, featuring an impressive and very shiny grille. The T80 will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in September, Chengdu being Yema’s hometown, and launch on the Chinese car market in October.
Spectacular Spy Shots showing the all new 2017 Audi A5 Sportback testing in China. The new Sportback will be launched in the fall and hit the market early next year. The car is heavily camouflaged but we can see a new design for the hatch and the rear deck, for the lights, and for the bumper.
Spy Shots showing the new 2017 Land Rover Discovery testing in China, revealing most of its lights, grille, and bumper. The new Discovery will be launched late this year. It will be made in England and in China by the Chery-JLR joint venture.
Spy Shots showing the new Hongqi H5 sedan testing in China. The H5 is the production version of the wild Hongqi B-Concept. The grille is a bit smaller, but not much. The H5 will be launched on the Chinese car market in the second half of next year.
It is based on the Mazda 6 Atenza that is made in China by FAW-Mazda. FAW, or First Auto Works, is also the owner of the Hongqi brand. Check the mirrors of the test car. Compare:
Haval sells eight SUVs that are seriously cannibalizing on each other. There are huge similarities in price, size, looks, and engines. And it is not going to stop. There are at least three more SUVs on the way: a sporty compact (could be the new H6), the F2 H2 twin, and now this; the production version of the 2014 Haval Concept Coupe.
It is again a compact SUV, powered by another 180+ hp 2.0 turbocharged engine. It is likely one of the new Haval F-Series vehicles, a range of sporty SUVs aimed at a younger audience, which will add even more cannibalism and confusion to the lineup.
Hengtian Auto is working on a new SUV called Yueli. It is a huge machine, combining design elements of the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Land cruiser Prado. The grille is impressive. The vehicle seems to be about five meters long.
