YOU CAN’T failed to notice the Olympics ise in full swing, not least we#8217;re soon going to to start opening our collective to pay for it. As you might expect of a country 1.3 billion people to choose China did rather well time out, but its automotive has a bit of catching up to do. Here are ten cars China that deserve a look.

01 China Brilliance B6

came up with the name clearly had a well-honed sense of Either that or they the company was going to be making sharpeners instead of cars. none of its cars could be as brilliant, especially the B6 saloon, can’t break ten seconds for the sprint and performed so badly in a crash test that the went away and had another go at them.

02 Shuanghuan CEO

If you’re going to be by one manufacturer, why not get sued by two? logic may well explain the CEO, which is an SUV that the front end of a Toyota Land with the sides and rear of the BMW X5. The is also blatantly copied the BMW #8211; even the steering is virtually identical #8211; obviously not to the same level of as the German interpretation.

It’s also a fair that the CEO isn’t as much fun to as the X5 either, even with a 230bhp on offer in the top version.

03 Smoothing

Rather than surgery for the over-50s male, the Smoothing is a big pick-up for the urban However, its general weediness make it a hit with agricultural – the most powerful has 124bhp, but it’s all done at despite weighing only 1.5 Best not to think about the model then, and perhaps the Dadi City Steed, or Unisonous instead.

04 Jiangling

You’d think that the way to build a car if you’re new to the game be to borrow someone else’s dust them down, them up a bit and put a shiny new badge on the #8211; and you’d be right. So the that the Landwind has a lot of the original Frontera in it isn’t a bad thing. But something was lost in translation, it looks like a garage and it also failed a crash spectacularly.

It’s now been turned the suspiciously familiar looking

05 Chery QQ

If the Chery QQ looks familiar, then you’re not the one who thinks so. General Motors understandably miffed when the QQ as it looked uncannily similar to the Matiz. GM went as far as beginning proceedings to demonstrate that it was a carbon copy – that the doors of the two cars interchangeable – until pointed out that intellectual rights aren’t recognised in and that being nice to the might help them win a slice of a potentially huge

06 Roewe 750

No prizes for guessing the of this car. The Roewe 750 is a Rover 75, lightly facelifted and in China, and thanks to the relative of the car it’s based on it has the dubious of being one of the better offerings to from the People’s Republic. A given that this car has the company that originally it to market.

Don’t be surprised to see the odd cropping up in Longbridge.

07 Hongqi HQD

copying and then there’s and the Hongqi HQD falls quite into the latter category. at the 2005 Shanghai Motor the HQD provoked a mixture of … and due to its Phantom-like features. No doubt the people at Rolls Royce less than enamoured, but the that Hongqi has a deal Volkswagen played part in the HQD reaching production.


08 Great Wall

It’s a lot less bother a hover, at least if it comes Great Wall that is. the most interesting thing the Hover is its name. The SUV is based on a of Toyota, Mitsubishi and Isuzu some of which are getting on a but it is a surprisingly handsome machine.

At it is unless you go for the stretched version, comes with a full-on TVs and a complete lack of taste. also amusingly named the Pi, presumably because it goes on and

09 Shandong Huoyun City

Small cars do make a lot of but there is a limit to this If you keep making them eventually they will completely useless. Shandong had a go at making the definitive small car in the of the City Spirit. They got of it right: electric power it green and apparently a toy model of the ForTwo was bought off the Internet to with the design.

Unfortunately noticed and politely suggested they take a look at the again. So they chopped off the end of it, but with a car that’s only long in the first place, a little too much.
