We don’t know if you noticed it, but Landwind’s, or rather Land Wind’s [sic], 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.
