It started off as the LandWind E32 in patent drawings last year, then became the LandWind X7. The product of a joint venture between otherwise respected Chinese car companies Changan Auto and Jiangling Motors Corporation, by either name it is a rip-off of the Range Rover Evoque. Land Rover complained to Chinese authorities about what it describes as a theft of intellectual property, but the complaint was dismissed. With all obstacles out of the way, Autocar reports that the X7 goes on sale in China next month. Chinese buyers seeking a bargain will have to give the X7 a hard look – its price is just one-third of the Evoque's. The similarities are more than skin deep. The X7 is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but the difference in MSRP shows up when comparing the outputs: 188 horsepower for the X7, 237 hp for the Evoque. Elsewhere, Autocar's close comparison of the real deal and its hanger-on revealed the differences in detailing that you'd expect of any much less expensive copycat. Although this nota bene concerns different vehicles, when it comes to corporate philosophy there was LandWind's X6, a repurposed Isuzu Rodeo that scored a zero in Europe's NCAP crash test, and it's CV9 - which cribbed a Vauxhall - that scored a two in the same crash test procedure. So there could be a few more differences between the Evoque and the X7 that might not be worth the money saved. Chinese buyers will have their chance to find out in a month's time.
At some point of your life comes a moment when your family simply cannot fit into a regular SUV, so you do what you’ve got to do, and that is buy a 3-row 7-seater. Probably this won’t come as a surprise, but these people haulers have one major disadvantage, the prices are hardly affordable. So to help you out in this unforgiving process of shopping for a new car, we gathered a list of the cheapest 7-seater SUV models that are available on the market today. Though roomy, safe and powerful they still remain within the reasonable price segment! Cars featured in this video: Dodge Journey: dodge.com/journey.html The most attractive feature of this Dodge is no doubt the pricing. There is literally no other vehicle on the market that can offer three rows of seating along with a price tag of just $22,795 for the basic trim.

Hyundai Santa Fe XL: hyundaiusa.com/santa-fe/index.aspx Though the imminent redesign of Santa Fe 7-seater will take place in 2019, it is still worth considering the outgoing model, due to the currently discounted price of $27,850, great safety ratings and rich package of standard features, typical for Korean manufacturers. Chevrolet Traverse: chevrolet.com/suvs/traverse-mid-size-suv The Chevrolet Traverse is among the few 7-seaters fully updated for the 2018 model year giving it an edge over the aging competitors. GMC Acadia: gmc.com/suvs/acadia-mid-size-suv Though many people would argue that GMC Acadia is just a rebadged Chevrolet Traverse, this is a bit unfair towards the two models.

The Nissan Lannia — the brand’s first model tailored specifically to the Chinese market — debuted at the Ford Taurus Receives Fresh Design in Shanghai” Nissan is aiming the oddly styled sedan at young buyers in their 20s and 30s. “Edging forward is not enough. The market in China is moving very fast, especially with the post-1980s generation,” said Titus Liu, creative design manager at Nissan Design China, in a release. “They do not want to stick with the status quo, so we are dedicated to finding the next great breakthrough.” The Lannia borrows bold design cues from the 2016 Nissan Maxima, but taken to the extreme. It sports a large nose, V-motion grille design, wide haunches, and geometric body lines similar to those of the full-size sedan. Peek around to the back, however, and the design becomes more polarizing. Inside, Nissan has filled the cabin with features that give it an athletic look, including a red dashboard and contrast stitching, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and a large 7.0-inch multimedia screen. The Lannia’s evolution first began two years ago in Shanghai when Nissan introduced the Friend-ME concept car. Looking at that model, you’ll notice a similar grille design but exceptionally sleek proportions. In 2014, the Lannia Concept built off the Friend-Me concept and grew to look a lot like the final production car. Watch the video below for a closer look at the Nissan Lannia and its market.

Known for their Range Rover Evoque clone, the X7, Landwind have managed to focus their efforts on bringing this rather original E33 SUV concept to the 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show on Friday. According to China’s Autohome, the E33 is a codename and the car in question is a compact crossover SUV, in near-production form. It’s also somewhat of an original design, unlike the X7 which shamelessly copied the Range Rover Evoque to the point where you could hardly tell them apart from a distance. Still, if you want to nitpick, you could say there are a few similarities to the Infiniti QX30 here, or perhaps a little Mercedes GLA from the C-Pillar rearwards, but overall it’s definitely not a complete clone of anything that’s currently being sold by another automaker. While the car may look ready for production, it’s possible (even probable) that the headlights will change, as will the low-profile tires which should give way to something a little more road-worthy. The production version of the E33 will be launched in the second half of 2017, powered by a Mitsubishi-sourced 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine with 150 HP and 210 Nm (154 lb-ft) of torque, coupled with a six-speed manual or a CVT. A report from Carnewschina, said that Prices in China are estimated to range from around 90,000 ($13,121) to 130,000 yuan ($18,953).
The Landwind Xiaoyao has been launched on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 79.900 yuan and ends at 131.900 yuan.
The Xiaoyao is a compact SUV with a design inspired by the Mercedes-Benz GLA. Chinese media are calling the Xiaoyao the “Chinese GLA”.
Xiaoyao: 4439/1835/1550, and wheelbase is 2700.
GLA: 4449/1804/1535, and wheelbase is 2699.
Engines: 150 hp 1.5 turbo mated to a five-speed manual, and a 163 hp 1.5 turbo mated to a six-speed manual or a CVT. They are not two variants of the same engine, but very different ones: the 15- hp 1.5 turbo is sourced fro Mitsubishi (4G15T), and the 163 hp 1.5 turbo is sourced from Jiangling Motor, the largest shareholder of Landwind Motors.
The Xuyao is front-wheel drive.
Size and proportions are similar to the GLA but it isn’t a total clone like the Landwind X7. Front and rear differ substantially, and the GLA doesn’t have a third-side window.
