      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.

      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

      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?

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

      I beg to differ. On both counts.

      Looks like a modern interpretation of a Vehicross.

      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 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.

      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.

      Looks like the TCL Korean gestapo is afraid of the up-and-coming competition.
