    Thread: The Beijing Auto Show Chinese cars thread

    1. 04-22-2012 12:52 PM #1
      The Beijing Auto Show starts tomorrow, but the pictures are already popping up.

      I know most of you guys don't like Chinese cars so this is my attempt to keep it all in one thread.

      Here we go...

      I think there is potential in this car. Interior color is a mess, but I like most of the exterior and it appears to be fairly original. Specifically I'm liking the headlights.

      that C70 is a beautiful car, no matter how much they copied from Benz and BMW.

      It's actually based on the Saabs BAIC bought when the ship was sinking.

      I see how much you love Chinese cars. Nice job digging dead threads back up.

      Another confused person who doesn't know squat about China.

      At least the Chinese market is open to foreign brands, unlike South Korea or Japan.

      Hahaha. "Fairly original".

      Its a knockoff Corolla, like most BYDs.

      There are clones and there are cars that look like each other.

      Old BYD F3 vs Old Corolla



      BYD Qin vs New Corolla

      It's a concept. And it's a plug-in hybrid, so they are trying to look "techy."

      The car features two large TFT LCD displays and a mysterious “robot” on the dashboard. Details are sketchy at this time, but the “robot” appears to pop out from underneath the dashboard and is outfitted with cameras. It is likely the terminal of BYD’s “i” networking system which handles everything from wireless internet, cloud computing, location services, music downloads, driver fatigue detection, and voice control.

      It never fails! Every time I read "BYD", Michael Jackson starts singing "PYT" in my head.

      Is the Beijing Auto Show a direct copy of other auto shows?
