Default Foton Saga and View G5 (MP-X)

Utility vehicle specialists Foton Automobile have displayed two cars at the Beijing show: the Saga, a full size SUV and MP-X, a full-size pick-up van.

The Saga, measuring 4705mm x 2060mm x 1685mm on a 2760mm wheelbase, was one of only a few genuine SUVs at the show, wich was otherwise dominated by smaller CUVs and compact cars.

Characterized by the massive radiator grille and headlamps with an upright stance, Saga shows ruggedness at the front, but combined with somewhat overly refined, Honda CR-V look-alike taillamps. Details are 'no frills', but its appeal will be to the drivers who want to enjoy the sheer driving experience on off-road.

The second vehicle on display was the MP-X pickup van. Understanding quickly the need for a full-size MPV like the Toyota Alphard and Nissan Elgrand in the future Chinese market, Foton looks to have jumped ahead in developing a competent MPV with the MP-X. Just like the Saga SUV, the MP-X features the massive front radiator grille and headlamps which sets the tone of the vehicle, while a split DLO is reminiscent of the Nissan Elgrand.

While I'm a little hesitant to say these cars are good looking, but they sure look modern, unlike many other "new" cars that already look dated. I esp like the van - pretty cool!

Chinese car design is catching up fast Great job!

I think I saw an MP-X yesterday, I was 'WTF is that' for a while.

Its unusual, to say the least. Definatly different from the other Chinese MPV's

Saga looks like a CRV crossed with a SsangYong Kryon which isn't to me liking

The MP-X looks like a Toyota Kijang at the front crossed with SsangYond DNA with the rear looking like a Mercedes Vito and the interior looks cheesy with faux wood.
