The FAW-Xiali T012 is design-wise inspired by the FAW T012 concept car that debuted on the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show. The production version will be powered by a 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 100hp, mated to a 5-speed manual. The T102 is the second sporty city SUV-kinda car of the Xiali brand, the first was the Xiali N7 which was launched

Whether the SUV-offensive will be successful remains to be seen, but it is a good thing the Xiali brand is trying to steer away from making cheap sedans based on an ancient Daihatsu.

  1. This rendering of the production version makes it look very nice. But in the flesh it’s not quite so long and wide.

  2. No only does it look very good, I can see a FAW design language starting to emerge, which is of vital importance.

  3. Looks promising design wise. Here’s hoping we’d see more pics of the interior and quality build (particularly the plastics and leather).

  4. Is it a T012 or T102? The continuity of the “code name” is rather poorly written in the articles. Pay a little more attention to detail. Besides that – this vehicle has some good European influences coming through its “DNA” and that is what the Chinese must focus on if they want captivate the Western market.
