New Land Wind X7 is China’s Range Rover Evoque Knockoff

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.

    Any word on US imports? The Evoque is a bit pricey here.

    • Kash

      highly doubtful

      • NG212

        I know. I don’t actually want one. This car is a total sh!tshow.

          some people do not understand sarcasm

      They’re probably losing money if they tried to import this since no one would want to buy this piece of ****.

      Only people with cataract will buy one.

  • Kash

    With that grille the front looks like the Ford Explorer imo.

  • BearUG

    35,000 miles before those things become piles of rust.

    • anonymous

      More like 35,000 yards before it disintegrates on its own.

      Seriously, someone needs to punch the owner/boss/what-have-you of these Chinese copycat companies. With a hammer. In the face. Twice.

  • donald seymour

    Knock off!!! That is not a knock off. Its a blatant copy for crying out loud.

    It’s terrible that China let’s this happen.

    • Imjus Laffin

      Land Rover should turn the tables and make a legitimate cheap copy of the “X7″ and sell it way below the price of the Land Wind and call it the ” Xseven”.

  • Legendary.
    Loudspeaker FTW! Sound!

  • The interior looks not that bad. Ok the exterior is an obvious “hommage” (not a copy, this China) But without being able to touch the inside it’s not bad lloking, a blend of VW and Hyundai with a touch of JLR.

    • OldGP

      You can appreciate the cheap materials of the interior from the photos. Three months of regular use and it looks and feels your Yugo.

  • Benjamin Corcoran

    Fucking Chinese. How do they get away with this? Are they ILL? How have they got no shame?

  • Mike Gonzalez

    this is all class of disgusting but i must admit that i like those black rims better than any Range Rover’s offering

  • Seriously, who ever buys this. Is like walking around with a fake Rolex …Oh sorry I mean ”Rorex’

    • Polyester Poontang

      Rolex, you plick.

    • Imjus Laffin

      They probably have the latest iPhoney 6 running Android 4.0 OS in their Goochi swag bag…sweet!!!

    let’s remember land rover is now officially ranked as one of the least reliable cars in the world. Let’s also remember pretty much all he tech you own is chinese made inc’ apple kit. (and alot of your clothes). If you want a reliable landy get an old defender, the rest are dodgy (i’m british btw). Notice how all exploration teams use either defenders or toyotas. Also remember the Evoque is basically a mondeo Ford EUCD platform.

  • serfah

    the only consolation is it’s an exact clone of an awful car…

  • CharlesSolomon

    The LandWind x7 with a 3.3 V6?? WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tomiwa

    • Kene Emmz

      Hello!! where you able to get the car?

      • Tomiwa

        No because i didn’t receive any response from anybody since then.
