This is the new Jinbei Diazi, it was unveiled on the 2016 Chengdu Auto Show in China. The Diazi is a clone of the third generation Acura MDX (2014-present) and Jinbei was kind enough to paint it in the same color as the Honda Avancier.

This is the new Jinbei Diazi, formerly known as the Jinbei MS3. The new name is hard to pronounce even in Chinese and doesn’t really seem to have a meaning. The Diaze is also a clone of the Acura MDX, and Jinbei even managed to copy an Acura color.
