      How I learned to draw as a kid: lots of tracing paper and pictures of cars from magazines....eventually I found my groove and started creating my own unique designs.

      That looks nice

      Nicest Chinese rip-off I've ever seen. Unfortunately it asplodes off the dealer's lot.

      There's a lot of stuff taken from Hyundai and Pontiac concepts from the mid to late 90s in there. The overall effect is OK, but it doesn't really suggest a distinctive design direction for Chery's vehicles.

      What stuff? To be more specific, which design elements have been ripped off?

      It's a totally different thing if this concept looks like something another company would have put out, but doesn't actually have any of their design elements.

      I never said ripped off. I said taken generally. See:



      Save the grille, the design is far more Korean than anything. It looks to me like a rejected design study for the last-generation Santa Fe.

      Most Chinese styling until now has struck me as either blatantly derivative or bizarrely incompetent. But this is different; I've never seen anything quite like that blade shape across the front of the hood and headlights, and I think it's attractive.

      Anybody can draw with a design program after a year or so of training. Question is, can they build it. I think no

      Of course they can. They're already the biggest automotive market in the world.

      I beg to differ. On both counts.

      The wheel arch treatment is unusual. It looks like a cheap way of making too-small wheels fit too-big wheel housings, but I don't really see why they'd do that on a concept where they have the latitude to do whatever they want.


      What is this supposed to be a rip off of?

      Looks like a modern interpretation of a Vehicross.

      I think it looks fantastic. And it shows they're hiring ID grads.

      Fairly original with good details and forms that are cohesive with good continuity. The proportions are nice, too.

      Rear kind of reminds me of the FX concept car for whatever reason.

      WOW

      that looks incredible, i love the lines on it. it has a taste of korean and japanese styling and looks futuristic but at the same time very right now. theres something about it that distinctly chinese too.

      this is the kind of stuff that were going to be seeing out of the auto industry as china becomes an international power house. once the chinese middle class has enough buying power theyll represent a huge segment of the automotive market so you gents are going to have to get used to it. its going to be really interesting to see where domestic chinese cars are 30 years from now.
