The Landwind X7 SUV is a Chinese clone of the Range Rover Evoque. Buyers who think their X7 doesn’t look enough like the Evoque yet can buy a special kit that includes a Evoque grille and Land Rover badges. The kit can be bought right at the Landwind dealer, just like Toyota kits can be bought at BYD.

A well stocked dealer.  Behind the X7 stands a Landwind X5 and behind that a Landwind X8. Check out all the other Landwinds cars here.

On a dark green X7, how British she looks.

Landwind is a Chinese car maker jointly owned by Jiangling Motors and Changan Auto, coincidentally (or not?) both joint venture partners of Ford, with Jiangling-Ford and Changan-Ford respectively. Ford owned Land Rover-Range Rover until 2008 when they sold it on to the TATA conglomerate of India.

This seller is very open about it, with some fine graphic design. ‘Transit’ the Landwind into a Range Rover. The real Transit is available in China too, manufactured by Jiangling-Ford. It all comes together every time.

Not a Land Rover. Not a Land Wind. What is, this car..?

  1. So… basically the Range Rover conversion kit is to turn that POS into thinking it’s a real Evoque?

    And I thought the conversion kit for that Shuanghoan (sic) SCEO (X5 ripoff) trash was bad…
