chery bought it in mexico, not iran

It was in Mexico where Chery bought the Toledo production line & car.

"Actually, the Toledo was never built in Mexico. It was a group of Mexican busisnessmen who purchased the dies and jigs from Seat, then sold them on in 1998 to Chery. Like many of the provincial Chinese car makers, Chery initially focused on selling production locally (in this case Wuhu City in Anhui Province). The first sales of the A160's predecessor were to Wuhu's local taxi fleet in 1999. SAIC stepped in in 2000, but sold their equity in Chery when the whole kerfaffle over the Matiz and Chery QQ heated up."

Sorry, I confused the Seat Ibiza from Nanjing (first bought by Iranian people, then sold to Malaysia and by the Malaysian company installed in Nanjing), with the Toledo from Chery.

three things

1. Hater, I am still waiting for answer on my question: "can you please connect me with the VW man who told you that?"
2. Hater, I will explain it again, as your statement: "Use of platform includes parts too. Obviously, VW didn't agree to Chery replicating its old models." makes clear that you didn't (want to?) understand it.
VW never objected against Chery making the Toledeo. VW didn't want Chery to use genuine VW parts while producing the Toledo. So, Chery was/is free to use other Chinese or Chery parts in the Toledo. Again: Chery is free to produce the Toledo which is designed on the VW Golf 2 platform, as long as it uses non-VW parts.
3. The 1600 engine in the Qiyun SQR 7162A15 is the Azteco variant of the original Chery engine: the CAC 480F, Euro3 and easy to adapt to Euro4.
There is now a new version with a 1300 engine: the Qiyun SQR7130A15, with another Azteco engine, the CAC 475.
The basic version of the 1300 is priced in China for only 55.800 yuan (5525 euro!).
