I just realized that I haven’t posted pictures of new Chinese cars for a while.
For this, I apologize.
So here is one: The all new Luxgen3.
As we know, Chinese cars mostly come in 2 flavors:
-Just plain weird
-Blatant copies of non-Chinese designs
This one seems to be a good illustration of the first category.
But when you think of it, it’s not much worse than recent Honda designs. Especially what they’ve been showing at Chinese Auto Shows.
It is cheap, but not THAT cheap. As it starts at around $10 500 in China.
Not that much less than a Versa over here.
I don’t really know that much about China’s economy, but this looks like a low end car. I just wonder how workers making $2 an hour can even afford a $10 000 car. like this…

As matter of fact, Luxgen is Not a Chinese car. It is a Taiwanese brand based in Taiwan. China is just one of its major markets.
Luxgen 3 does look weird. The larger Luxgen 5 (introduced on 2012) actually looks pretty nice.
Maybe Honda is showing China ugly designs so China can copy them and fail.
Still better than the new Prius…
If you told me this was a Honda Fit Sedan, I would have no trouble believing you. Thats how strange Honda has become.
Things have changed, Vince. Honda is copying the worst of ungly Chinese designs these days.
Looks like a Mix of Fiesta, Sentra, with a little Honda lightening bolt for good measure.
Junk is pure f'in junk.
Yes, there really are cars uglier and more discombobulated than Toyota.
Luxgen is a Taiwanese company and they've actually made some good looking cars. This is the cheapest car in their line up and it does look kinda cheap unfortunatly.
very honda like, rivals new civic , which is a horrific disjointed mess!
