It looks nice, but it looks too much like a Q7.
Well I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh well, I guess we are gonna pretend.

Actually, I can't remember the cars maker nor its name. . . but there is an american car that somewhat looks like it.

Maybe its a chevy? I'm not sure, not really into cars. . .

Sorry for checking in late to this topic...but, irrespective of what the consensus on styling is, I believe this li'l gem already has three strikes against it.

First strike is the affiliation with VW, which by all analysis, can't really seem to get a handle on build quality and service with their regular vehicle line-ups.

Second and third strikes (you're out!) is that some preliminary design decisions and the major distribution and marketing efforts will be lead by non other than the "famous" Malcolm Bricklin hisself.

If, in fact, this is the product he has been promoting on several car-oriented talk shows recently, I can easily conjur up a repeat of the Bricklin, Yugo and Fiat marketing disasters of past. Malcolm occassionally recieves accolades from various masters of the motordom press, but I see more snake-oil salesmanship than most, I guess. Regards...jack

Looks like they simply crossed a Q7 with a Passat Estate - nothing more.

Just like everything else, expect a lot of low-priced cars from China to sell throughout the world in the upcoming years. I remember when Hyundai started to sell their cars in the US market in the 1980's. At first a questionable but cheap set of wheels. Now selling like mad and they even built a plant in the US recently. Remember back in the day when everyone thought Toyota and Honda were a joke? Well who has the last laugh?
