CORRECTION: The Jeep Wrangler is powered by the 3.6L Pentastar V6, not a V8. ANYWAY...What do you think of these Chinese cars? Would you drive one if it was more affordable than the real thing? Let me know!

I would buy the landwind before the land Rover. The reliability of jaguar / land Rover is one of the worst among western manufacturers

The only way China can exist is if they are allowed to copy everyone else. If they were to close off their country from the West, China would suffer significant quality of life issues exactly like those they inflicted on themselves when the Communists took power. They have entire industries devoted to spying and stealing technology throughout the world but they don't create an environment to compensate innovation by the individual. Most knockoff products are cosmetically or superficially appealing but do not have the appropriate technology to support the items long term.

i can't say i agree that the chinese supercar looks anything near a bugatti, not even close from any angle. i can however say that their badge resembles the tessla badge when seen from a distance. and the rear end is pretty similar to the porsche cayman gt4 (and that generation) and kinda have some recembelence to the new acura nsx not enough to attack them for it tho and in my mind does it look pretty damn good.

China doesn't really have ultimate respect for the rule of law (even though their ambassadors etc speak as of they do). This decision of a court may have real impact, but who knows for how long and how broadly. If president Xi decides this is undesirable he can reverse it easily. China is an authoritarian state and while abuses of the rule of law occur in the West, in principle, and usually in practice, the law rules above the arbitrary dictates of the head of government or head of state. Not so in China, the head of state sits above the law in both theory and practice.

I'm Chinese and honestly I'm not offended at all. There are people in my country who's actually trying to make decent cars, but there are more scum bags just copying other people's designs. Someone should call them out and honestly, smite the fuck out of them. But hey, we can't even make a car by our selves 50 years ago! As for now the only Chinese brand that I could say for sure is good, or at least some good, is the Haval. They sold a bunch of them little buggers and they were actually highly appraised by the users. Many design flaws and imprefections compared to its American or German counterparts but I'd call that a good first step. Give it another decade or two China will also be pumping out actually decent vehicles/

Well, Toyota started by copying euro car design in the 50s and 60s. We will see how these scum bags perform after 50 years. :P

Would have been nice to compare the copies in other areas too, such as interiors, reliability, etc... After all, not everyone is a piston-head. Having a powerful engine under the hood is not always necessary... especially if the target client lives in busy cities and has no interest in taking their car to the track. So the Chinese may actually be onto something... get the great looks, without having to pay for the unnecessarily over-powered, fuel-hungry engine.

Nolan you say you're not good at German but that was pretty good. Just make a little gurgle in the back of your throat when you pronounce words with "ich" in it. Top tip from a native.
