The Landwind X7, the famous Range Rover Evoque clone, gets a facelift and a new 1.5 turbo engine. The facelift includes new front lights, a new grille, a new front bumper, and an entirely new rear. The facelifted Landwind X7 will hit the Chinese car market in the next quarter.
It has the Range Rover name on the bonnet, a Range Rover grille, a Land Rover badge, and it looks like a Range Rover Evoque. But it isn’t. This instead is a Landwind X7, a clone of the Evoque, fitted with fake badges and painted in a classy light gold.
Revenge! A Range Rover Evoque crashed into its clone; the infamous the Landwind X7, hurting it a little bit. Both cars are red so we can see once more how much the X7 looks like the Range Rover. The accident happened in the great city of Chongqing. The Range Rover has Chongqing license plate, whereas the Landwind hails all the way from Guangdong.
Reuters reports that Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is suing the Chinese automaker Jiangling Motor (JMC) for copyright infringement and unfair competition. JMC is the largest shareholder of Landwind, the maker of the controversial Landwind X7, which is a near-perfect copy of the Range Rover Evoque.
Is JLR going to win? Based on looks alone they sure should, as the photos below will prove. But this being China; there is more than meets the eye.
Finally it happened to me: eye to eye with the Landwind X7 in China. I had seen the controversial clone on shows but never in the wild. And there she was, brand new and wearing blue, standing on a street in the faraway Dongba area, just minutes away from my home.
Landwind Motors brought a very speedy Landwind X7 SUV to the 2015 Chengdu Auto Show in China. The superbly controversial vehicle was painted in virgin white and fitted with a massive body kit. Sadly however the wheels and alloys are bog standard.
Landwind Motors has finally launched the supremely controversial Landwind X7 SUV on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 129.800 yuan and ends at 147.800 yuan ($21.000 – 23.801). The X7 is an almost perfect 1:1 clone of the Range Rover Evoque, but sells for three times less.
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.
