Ugliest Range Rover copy you’ve ever seen and it’s obviously Chinese

5 Min Read

The Chinese automotive market has a history of manufacturing cars that look like some established models across the globe. One such example of a similar model is now doing the rounds on social media – this time a compact, shrunken copy of a Range Rover.
One can clearly make out in just a glance that this compact car bears an uncanny resemblance to the Range Rover Autobiography.In fact, it also features brown leatherette interiors like the former. However, the execution falls flat, especially in terms of interiors where they fail to deliver the plush aesthetics of the luxury SUV. On the outside, it copies almost every element and design cues of the Range Rover, including the grille, headlights, DRLs, bumper, and the overall boxy silhouette. On the rear side too, it features the same vertically-stacked LED tail lamps and a roof-mounted spoiler. The grille is also adorned with an excessive amount of chrome.
What really is amusing is its compact size, similar to that of a sub-4 metre mass-market SUV. It basically looks like a sized down version of the Range Rover, featuring smaller dimensions and a relatively shorter wheelbase. Turn your attention to the tyres, it gets multi-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in tiny entry-segment car tyres, something different from the original car in terms of design and dimensions.
