For most car enthusiasts outside of China, Landwind is best known as the automaker that produces the infamous Range Rover Evoque rip-off. While a number of design changes last year did give Landwind’s X7 a slightly new look, its similarities to the Evoque were still evident.
Fortunately, the Chinese car manufacturer has been hard at work expanding its range, and the first images of its latest SUV model have just emerged online thanks to Autohome.
As Landwind has yet to officially launch the vehicle in question, not even disclosing its name, many key details about it remain unknown. Nevertheless, this images of an undisguised pre-production model reveal both interior and exterior designs radically different to those of previous Landwind models.
Viewed from the front, you’ll immediately notice a pair of thin daytime running lights and a mammoth front grille that somewhat reminds us of the new Chevrolet Blazer. Located directly below the running lights are the main headlight units which include the turn signals and high beams, whereas even lower you’ll find the fog lights.
The crossover pictured is painted in a dark shade of plum which certainly isn’t the most desirable color imaginable. Fortunately, the paint has been offset nicely by silver window surrounds, B-pillars, and C-pillars. As for the rear, it adopts a pair of simple taillights and dual tailpipes.
Spy shots of the SUV’s interior show off a large infotainment screen, flat-bottom steering wheel, two-tone leather, and a number of silver accents.
It remains unclear when this new Landwind will be launched or arrive in dealerships across China, and whether it will be sold outside its home market.
