March 28, 2017 by Tycho de Feijter

This is not the Ford S-Max. This is the Lifan Xuanlang, a new Chinese MPV that looks a lot like the Ford. Really a lot. Lifan does that kind of stuff all the time. They think that is cool. It is also very cheap. The Xuanlang seats seven and price starts at just 69.800 yuan and ends at 106.800 yuan.

Sales are set to start on March 8 and price will start at 560.000 yuan or $81.450. There are a notable differences between the U.S. spec and the China-spec car. Here they are:

Lincoln Continental Launched On The Chinese Car Market

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).

Clone Country: Hawtai Goes For The Ford Taurus In China

This is not a Ford. This instead is the first image of the new Hawtai Lusheng E80, a midsize sedan that will be launched on the Chinese car market next year. Hawtai took a good look at the Ford Taurus and copied the hood, grille, lights, bumper, A-pillar, and even the mirrors. Sadly we cannot see the rest of the car but we bet it will be Ford all along.

Clone Country: China's Lifan Rips Off The Ford S-Max With New MPV

And the cloning continues. The latest example is this Lifan Xuanlang MPV, which looks far too much like a Ford S-Max. The proportions are the same, overall design is the same too, and so are the roof line, windows, the bonnet, the lights, the ‘Aston Martin’ grille, and even the alloys.
