BMW X1 VS.Brilliance A3


At first I thought the new Chinese SUV could just be a rebadged X1.
Which could make some sense, since Brilliance is scheduled to manufacture the X1 for BMW in 2012. And they already build the 3 and 5 series for the Chinese market.

But no…

If you look at the 2 cars, the BMW being on top, they are quite different.
Look at where the door handles are, the space between the front wheel and the front door etc…
Not the same car…

Just a close copy, design and built with 0% shame involved…

  1. Kudos to Brilliance for making ugly uglier! I hear Toyota is looking for designers with this very special skill.

  2. It is always the pinheads who bash the chinese for copying great cars…You are the only thinking man here…I to want a $20K chinese ferrari F430.

    You are an idiot.

    A $20,000 Ferrari clone would perform like a 1990 Corolla and have the quality of a mid 80's Hyundai.

    The Chinese can't build a proper vehicle yet, and I certainly don't want them here in the US.

  4. Sick of the Chinese. Can't trust them. And now we owe them….big. I love the X3, though. And it's made in South Carolina, USA without the help of unions.

  5. At least 10% of assembled products from China are defective right out of the box. 30% brakes within six months. They are fine at producing disposable crap. But a car is a completely different story.
