After the official pictures last week now finally some of the real thing. The S6 will be equipped with a lof of goodies, here some: keyless entry, voice-controlled navigation system, reverse camera system, parking assist camera, heated glass, heated outside rearview mirrors, 11 speakers, DVD player, 7-inch touch screen and a digital tv.

Heated as well the discussion on the Chinese interwebs, bbs and forums: does it look too much like that Lexus or not? Opinions are devided but most seem to think the back is a copy. It is.

Who can deny that? I mirrored the picture for a better compare. It is a 2008 RX400h. But is a copy necessarily a bad thing? That is for the market to decide. Actually in China it doesn’t matter much since most buyers don’t care at all about whether it is a copy or not. They just want to have a lot of luxury for cheap and that’s what BYD will give ‘m from around 135.000 rmb.

    BYD S6 is an original design and does not in anyway resemble the Lexus. People just need to stop perceiving chinese brands as copycats.

    Why did BYD copy such an ugly car? Lexus RX is even uglier than Harrier, its Toyota badged twin…
