Today we have a very special car in Spotted in China and China Car History. This is the Tianjin Xiali TJ7101L, a long-wheelbase variant of the Xiali TJ7101 hatchback. It is the only factory-produced stretched-hatchback ever, in the world. The extension sits on the B-pillar and measures eight centimeters.

A fiery Tianjin Xiali TJ7131UL, Spotted in China in the Lido area in Beijing. The good Xiali was in a very good shape, painted in red with red bumpers and red mirrors, and fitted with original sporty wheels. The grille looked a bit tired but a good cleanup will fix that easily.
