Hafei Minyi and Minyi M408
Article about Minyi (called Minz in Singapore) in Paultan:


Singapore is a place where both the original Hafei Lobo and the Naza Forza are sold in the same market, but Hafei in Singapore exists with a 2 model line-up. Other than the Lobo, there is also a little 7-seater van called the Hafei Minz.

Powering the Hafei Minz is a 1.1 liter engine that is different from the one found in the Forza/Lobo (1,051cc versus the Lobo/Forza’s 1,075cc), putting out 52 horsepower at 5,200rpm and 83Nm of torque at 3,000rpm (versus the Lobo/Forza’s 65 horses and 88Nm). It has a power steering and weighs about 1,050kg. It measures 3,745mm in length, 1,505mm in width and it is 1,925mm tall.

Think of it as a smaller and cheaper Suzuki APV with one less seat. If sold in Malaysia the Hafei Minz could cost under RM50,000, possibly making it the cheapest 7-seater MPV around if Naza Corporation ever decides to expand its Hafei-rebadging line-up with the Minz.

Applause for Minyi !
It scored very well in the recent JD Power Initial Quality Survey. It had just 2.29 defects per car in a 100 car sampling. That's comparatively good for Chinese makers. It's too bad JD Power is so limited in the number of Chinese domestic cars it includes in its surveys.
SGM Wuling's Sunshine minivan was the other one that did well at 2.33.
