    How is this for a fake, and how do they get away with it

    I wonder what the handling, integral strength and reliability is like though? Hmmmm, well the latter probably can't get much worse hehe

    Reliability will be better than Land Rover.

    They have been doing that for years though, cars, shoes, clothing, etc - its big business

    I've seen plenty about other equipment, but not whole cars.
    A quick change of badges etc and the grey import now becomes a fake import. I'm sure that will catch some people out.

    I would buy the Land Wind, it costs only around 14k and looks good. :Fear:

    The only thing I can see stopping this is for countries to all boycott goods made in China but it will never happen. Money talks etc.

    I'd rather pay more for quality but many won't or can't.

    Range Rover Evoque versus LandWind X7 copycat – which is better? | Autocar

    "A look at the interior of the X7 shows reasonable quality leathers and soft plastics for a Chinese car. However, it should be remembered that LandWind garnered a zero in the Euro NCAP crash test safety ratings for their Isuzu Rodeo-based X6.

    And it seems that the X7 inherits exterior build issues. There is evident bubbling of paintwork on corners and the gaps of the rear doors and boot are neither regular nor flush with the sides."


    ....You pays your money and takes your chances....

    A zero in NCAP ratings is quite an achievement, can't think of any manufacturer that fails that badly. At least you get a bigger touch screen in the X7 which is nice of them. Means you have a bigger screen to aid you in crashing.

    Funny that the review mentions the panel gaps...

    Many years ago I heard that those in the motor trade reckoned there were only two man made things visible from space...

    The Great Wall of China, and the panel gaps on a Land Rover...
