It looks like VW golf VI or am I wrong ?

Actually, you need to reverse that - the Golf VI looks like the A1. Why? Well, let's see here...........the A1 debuted (at the auto shows) in 2007, and went on sale in China in early 2008. The Golf VI did not debut until October 2008 at the Paris auto show, and on sale this year (2009) in China. We all accuse the chinese companies of copying and cloning other foreign cars (and for the most part we have ample evidence to do so in many cases) - I think it is entirely reasonable to assume that as ORIGINAL chinese designs continue to get better and better, foreign companies could begin to start "borrowing" design ideas from chinese cars!:eek: The A1 might not be the best car out there, but it is a attractive small car, no doubt about it. Some other examples - how about the Roewe 350? Brilliance FRV/FSV? Chery A3 (especially the 5 door)? All original, all very attractive and worthy of attention from foreign car designers. I really think that VW actually looked at the A1 and said "hmmmm.......we can do something with that"? NO. I do think Chery looked at many other cars (including the Golf V) when designing the A1.........but no copying or cloning in this case. The A1 IS original - so let's give Chery credit where credit is due.

Thai Chery Yarnyon Co.,Ltd will release Chery A1 (RHD version) in Thailand this year.

According to , Manual transmission version will release in May 2010 and automatic transmission version will release after (4th quater 2010).

EDIT : According to latest news, The A1 will not release in 2010. It will release in 2011. The A1 will appear in "Thailand International Motor Expo 2010" (1 - 12 December 2010).
I think A1 needs a face-lift in interior design urgently.
My friends father is living in Italy and thinking about buying one, with dr badge (the dr2). He knows that I'm following the chinese car brands and asked me if I know something about car's reability. Can someone who owns one tell something about it?
Next week we are going for a test drive... it will be my first chinese car drive experience!!! :)
Does anyone know the origin of the engine ?

They made the 1999 SEAT Toledo under licence (a 1990s Golf), so is it derived from the 8 valve Golf engine ?

They appear to have turned the engine around 180 degrees.
Leyland did this to prevent their cars from stalling when it went through a puddle (wet the distributor).
Which would make you tend to think it was derived from a non-crossflow longitudinally mounted engine. See, when they made it transverse and crossflow and put the exhaust manifold at the front like most cars have, the distributor was exposed. So they turned it around 180 degrees.
That's why there's such a convoluted path for the inlet manifold.
the new interior is for the 1.0 L model only or for the 1.3 L also ?
