Chinese auto market is growing with furious speed. This year car makers presented plenty of novelties at the famous Shanghai Motor Show. The cars demonstrate us that Chinese auto industry made a big step forward and in the future it has all chances to win the world’s favor.

The first novelty is the compact crossover GS of MG brand based on the new platform developed jointly with SAIC Corporation.

Zinoro is a brand which belongs to joint enterprise of BMW and Brilliance. It presented new concept named NEXT.

Another crossover concept was introduced by Venucia (joint enterprise of Nissan and Dongfeng). The car turned out to be attractive and memorable.

Truly original and distinctive crossover was presented by Landwind Company. Model received the name X7.

Also we should note that Chinese auto industry strikes by the absolute lack of principle in relation to someone else’s intellectual property. So you can see a lot of Chinese clones of European, American and Japanese leaders of the world car brands. The most successful are:

– The new Chinese crossover BYD T6 which is Porsche Cayenne copy, with “disguised” grille and BYD logo;

– Shangan CEO is a double of BMW X5 previous generation;

– Chery QQ is a small car of A-class, which is almost an exact copy of the Daewoo Matiz. The machine is characterized by friendly design, excellent fuel consumption and a spacious interior that easily accommodates four adults;

– Cherry Tiggo is a Chinese copy of the Toyota RiW4 second-generation. In 2012, the model has gone through a restyling that touched the exterior and interior of the car.
