Default Great Wall Voleex C30

From China Car Times
Quote:
Greatwall have jumped into the hatchback game feet first once they realized that SUV and Truck sales were about to fall through the floor. Their first model was the Great Wall Peri, which they followed up with the Greatwall Florid, the Coolbear and the soon to be unknown hatch.

Their first concept sedan was shown at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year where it surprised crowds with its funky looks, which appeared to be a mixture of sporty and formal, an unusual mix that worked just right for the usually bland designing automaker.

A leaked early version of a forthcoming Greatwall mini sedan has been leaked to the internet and early opinions are not good. The mini sedan seems to resemble the unknown hatchback mentioned earlier, with a notchback trunk attached to the rear. The sedan seems to have E-Class like folds in the door (although, every car has them now) and a Lifan 520 front end. Itís not clear where Great Wall are going with this one, perhaps its just best to bring out the sports concept sedan instead?

I also forgot to add: Can anyone who has the ability to post pictures from China Car times please do so. Also, does anyone think that they might export it. It would really give the range a boost in terms of cheap, good looking and decent quality sedans.

I like it. It's kind of original with cues from the Corolla sedan in my view. Thanks for the help martin. What do you think about it?

Nothing special in my oppinion. In reality it will be even less attractive.

But at least it's not an exact copy of some other model.

The new Kia Forte sedan and Koup rock big time, I agree TonyJZX. They are built well, too, with generous Warranties that come with them.

New article from China Car Times:
Quote:
Great Wall Motors had their first foray into the hatchback segment two years ago, and have had reasonable success with their mini car range, but their next big thing is their first sedan.

Information on their first sedan is not clear, however it is certain that it wont be the CHC011 sedan that we saw at last years Shanghai Auto Show, instead it is likely to be a notchback sedan version of one of their existing sedans. The 1.5T powered sedan is expected to launch next year, and the CHC011 is expected in 2012 with GWM’s own 3.0l V6 engine powering the wheels.

Looks promising. I'd have to say, it looks a lot better than the original concept pics posted earlier.
My guess it it will be exported with the rest of the range.
