Last friday I had a meeting with a Brilliance engineer in Shenyang and was told that the A1 may be introduced during the forthcoming Auto Shanghai (20.4.-28.4.). Can anybody confirm this launch date?

Brilliance A1 production figures

As to our OEM database, the Brilliance A1 shall be roll off assembly line in Q1/2008 with an annual production volume of 45K. It is dedicated for the upper A-class segment and shall compete e.g. with VW Polo.

Has anyone more information (specs., pictures) about this car?

Nan, i'm not sure at all :nono: according to the link you provided, it's believed to be a new MG 25 developped by Nanjing Automobile
Thanks guys; yes I knew what the article said but it didn't look right and it seemed to be based on a guess by the person who took the photos. Plus, as BringIt said - it "Sure has that Brilliance front end...".

Sounds like its not an A1 though - mabe it is an MG!

Windy, I think you were right in the first place, despite plenty of claims about it being an MG.
It turns out those pictures were of a disguised Brilliance A1,

Brilliance styling stands out from the crowd

Thanks for the excellent photos CD and Martin.
Haven't owned a hatchback before but this is one I would really feel good about parking in my driveway. Brilliance doesn't turn out a lot of models but what it has turned out, are really pleasing to the eye.
Who is the designer of this well-proportioned, sleek looking machine?

As for the color, maybe a shade lighter would be OK. By the way how do Chinese react to this color? And, what colors do they prefer? Red is lucky, but then again I don't see that many red cars on the road. The red Junjie that China Driver posted looks great. Or maybe it's just that great Junjie styling that struck me once again.

Unlike the Japanese, I think Chinese avoid white because of the morbid associations with it.

New Brilliance FRV = A1

So Wendy's guess7hint was right, if one compare her spy shot with photos of Martin....

From a design viewpoint, the FRV is a fairly generic, slightly old-proportioned C-segment hatchback. Visually, the FRV bears resemblance to the Hyundai i30 that debuted at Geneva motorshow. Otherwise the car does have some distinctive design elements, such as the way the DLO wraps down into the front door shut; its pronounced fender forms and distinctive lights; and its lower body side crease that oddly breaks with convention and runs down as it goes rearwards.

I suspect that interior colour and material may have just been for the show and is not necessarily representative of the series-production FRV.
