That looks like a Gen 1 with a Gen 2 nose stuck on it . . .

My sentiments exactly. Not as dynamic as the xB, but I don't think it looks all that bad. Plagerize, plagerize...that's why God made your eyes.

The Koreans have made giant strides in auto manufacturing in the last few years, but a Chinese car? If they hold true to current Chinese manufacturing standards, the paint will oxidize and slough off fatal levels of lead, plastic parts will outgas toxins that cause blindness, upholstery materials will contain asbestos, critical components of the braking system will dissolve when they come in contact with hydraulic fluid and all metal parts will rust to terminal failure when exposed to normal atmospheric conditions.

Wow... totally identical.
I remember when I was younger, Hyundai used to do exactly what these Chinese car-makers are doing.
Because they don't have enough funds for their own design centers and r&d centers, they just had a couple designers and engineers that worked from what's already out in the market and what's similar to the direction the company wants to go.

What they used to do was... put a number of cars that they liked the features of.. then take pieces from those cars, then put them together into one car.

That was over 15 years ago.
Now, even though I don't drive a Hyundai, they've become much bigger than what everyone expected to become of Hyundai.


I believe these Chinese companies, if marketed and managed well, have a very strong potential.

I heard that (not confirmed just out of one russian site) in order to put your product on their (chinese) market you have to share your technology or something like that.
