Default Wow.........

I think that Brilliance has REALLY hit a "home run" this time with the FRV!! Nice blend of styling (curvy and sleek, but not a jelly bean) with SOME aggressiveness to it.......Dad can still look "cool" while driving it!! From what I've read, the target goal as far as price is in the 70-80,000RMB range (with luxury versions a bit higher)......this would give Brilliance a VERY solid entry in a new market segement - there making Brilliance (the name brand) availiable to a LOT more people potentially.

I've seen a few interior photos as well, if I can remember where I saw them I'll copy and post them here.

Default Here they are....

OK, found a couple of interior pics.......nothing "earth shattering" - but it has a nice, "classy" feel to it. An interesting side note about the FRV....

Several internet news articles referred to the FRV as one of the most significant cars at the Shanghai auto show.....why?? First, it shows a willingness on the part of Brilliance to "take a step down" and offer a car in a lower price bracket.........and attract a whole new legion of customers as a result. Second (and more importantly), The FRV is seen as a MAJOR vehicle in Brilliance's export plans. Brilliance is the ONLY chinese auto company with a established dealer network in Europe (these news articles were european based), and the FRV is being looked at as a competitor for the VW Golf and it's peers. It gives Brilliance a nice "price point" vehicle in Europe, and even though it will never surpass the Golf in sales, the FRV COULD erode some of the Golf's market share.

I know I sure like the FRV, and I can't wait to see it for real!!!

With their coupe and this hatchback, Brilliance might have a great future.

But the interior is just awfull. Even the Citroen C3 has better plastics!

I love the fake-wood gear knob. It's the surrealist touch!

This car, Junjie FRV, will launch during the beijing auto show next month.
