First it was designer handbags, than designer clothing, than Hyundai decided to copy the Porsche Cayenne for its Santa Fe, but although the Santa Fe and the Cayenne looked noticeably similar, they were not exactly a direct copy. However then along came this from Huanghai Auto in China.
At first glance you might think oh the front looks pretty original, perhaps to us it does, but its actually a near identical copy of the Pontiac Torrent, a car we don’t get in Australia.
Not a bad effort by the Chinese manufacturer, it looks almost better than the Pontiac Torrent. Of course to make it look original, Huanghai Auto decided to copy the lexus rx series for the rear:
Not a bad looking car! If this is what we are going to expect from the Chinese in the next few year, we will surely see a BMW 7 Series mixed with an Aston martin, powered by a 1.5L engine from a Yaris.
