  1. This SUV looks just as if someone stopped the design team midway into the development. Absolutely incoherent and garish compared to their past models.

    Changan had been doing an amazing job with their designs, specially those of the UNI range. Since their lead designer got poached it seems they truly lost their way…

    • Fully agreed. This is a mess between straight and rounder lines. Of course, the sign the government decided to ‘save’ this brand aleady doesn’t bode well…
