After the first teaser sketches, Huansu Auto’s Lamborghini Urus ripoff, the C60 Hyosow, has been officially revealed in the flesh in China.
Made by BAIC owned Huansu, the C60’s fascia clearly mimics the Italian super-SUV, while the similarities continue with the fender vents, profile line and taillights with the signature LEDs. It’s not a 1:1 clone, but it’s pretty obvious that Huansu aped the Urus’ design.
Despite being a very affordable clone of the Lamborghini Urus, expected to cost between 100,000 and 150,000 yuan ($15,570-$23,355) when first deliveries begin in China at the end of the year, the Huansu Hyosow doesn’t actually look half bad. Compared to other abominations that surfaced from China over the years, like the Longer Yuelang X1, it actually looks decent.
It should have enough space for five occupants inside, given that its wheelbase is 2,815mm (111in) long, or just 187mm (7.4in) shy of the Lamborghini Urus. It measures 4,820mm (189.7 in.) long, 1,915mm (75.4 in.) wide and 1,660mm (65.3 in.) tall.
Even though previous reports mentioned a 150 horsepower 1.5-liter engine, we now know that the C60 crossover will get a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline four-cylinder, producing 181hp (135kw / 184PS) and 285Nm (210 lb-ft) of peak torque. It will be offered with both 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmissions.
While performance figures are pending, one thing is very certain: it won’t pose a threat to the real Lamborghini Urus, which has a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine with 641hp, and takes as little as 3.6sec to hit 62mph (100km/h).
Part of the automaker’s X-Series lineup, which will include a range of crossovers and SUVs with sporty designs, the Huansu Hyosow, codenamed C60, will officially go on sale exclusively in China this coming December.
