blogentry-114362-0-52957600-1416881107_thumb.jpgWe don’t know if you noticed it, but Landwind's, or rather Land Wind's, new X7 looks like the Range Rover Evoque – a lot, actually.

 

And it couldn’t come at a worse time for Land Rover as the British firm just started production of the Evoque in China with its local partner Chery Automobile Company.

We're not just talking about some vague similarities between the two SUVs, but a visually very close copy – go ahead, call it a clone, no one will blame you…

 

Landwind is hosting the world premiere of the X7 at this week's 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show, but we've yet to hear any comments from Land Rover.

The X7 shares its platform with Landwind's X5 SUV with power coming from a Mitsubishi-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine producing 204PS (201hp) and 250Nm (184 lb-ft) of peak torque paired to either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic, according to Chinese media.

In the land of fakes and copycats, where egg can also "make", I can hardly say I'm surprised at this

Saw it in a China web site that land rover cannot sue lufeng because land wind design has copy right but Evoque did not applied for the right. Look like lufeng has snook the Ang mor in its own game. Anyone can verify?

Will they sell it in Singapore?

Very unlikely, i remember in '07 or '08, geely distributor in Singapore tried to bring in the fake BMW X3 lookalike, i saw at least 10 models in the 2nd floor of the showroom, and after a few months i heard it was not approved to be sold in SG

What a shame, what a disgrace... Simply no own style and character. What this Chinese are doing are not showing the world what they are capable of coming something fresh and on their own, but instead, they are disgracing and tarnishing themselves.

    Is the Audi RS5 Sportback a match for its rivals?

    Looking for a German performance sedan? The Audi RS5 offers plenty of performance with 444bhp and 600Nm of torque. And boy is Idris excited to get behind the wheel in this video review! Wouldn't we all? And as you would expect from a Sportback from Audi, it is quite the looker as well. But this RS5 comes with plenty of practical features as well. Despite offering so much performance, there's space for our usual luggage test in the boot! And being a four-door, you'd expect sufficient space for your passengers as well, and the RS5 delivers. Unfortunately it looks like that touchscreen is a bit of a stretch away when you're seated at the front... And how does it drive? Very impressively it seems! Watch the full video to see and hear more of the Audi RS5 on the road!  You'll want to!

    Driver forgets there's a bicycle on his car, gets stuck at MCP entrance

    Watch this video posted by Singapore incidents, and you find this Skoda Kodiaq who is ferrying his prized offroad bicycle on top of his roof rack got stuck in the carpark gantry in Midview City at Sin Ming. So here's my suggestion for the forgetful driver. 1) Use a rear bicycle mount. Just remember to go to your nearest accessories shop to get an extra car plate to hang after you mount your bicycle. 2) Get air suspension for your ride     MCFers remember your car surrounding when you are driving to avoid an awkward situation like this!

    Is this guy trying to be police or funny?

    Hello nieces and nephews, this is your uncle Koba here again. Hello. Today, we have this guy who is trying too hard to fulfil his boyhood dream of becoming traffic police. Spotted on Road.sg, this Honda ST1300 - a road touring bike which is kinda familiar to our SPF choice of weapon, the Yamaha XJ900T. Let's have a look. Wait a sec. Fuiyoh! He is a whole package! A long long time ago, there must be young handsome traffic police who gave him a helping and makes him remember how cool traffic police is and since then, he got inspired to becoming one. Alrighty, so nieces and nephews, please take a second look at our traffic police when you spotted one. It may and may not be one.

    BMW 5 Series driver loses control and flips car

    Despite many manufacturers equipping their cars with many safety systems onboard their cars, they do not make the car immune to the laws of physics as we can see from these videos below. front.MP4 We got hold of these videos via some of the various random group chats that have been circulating it and from the looks of it, the accident happened earlier this morning (9 Jan 2020) while the roads were greasy from the drizzle over the day. We are not sure which part of the ECP highway this is but what is clear is that the camera car was driving at his own pace on lane 2 before (what looks like) a group of 3 BMW F10 5 series overtaking the camera car. Unfortunately, one of them lost control while trying to overtake his mates due to the last min abrupt weight transfer as he did the sudden lane change from 1 to 3. 44db9e47-1ba5-44ab-a4c2-1ad0dc8180cd.MP4 We have no idea if the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) was turn off or was it too much even for the DSC to save in the first place? Kudos to BMW for building a decently strong car. Despite the seriousness of the crash, the car still looked like it held up pretty well. Anyway, with the recent rainy weather, do take extra care when on the roads and make sure your tyres have enough thread!
