CAIRO, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- Shining shape, fine quality, good price and satisfactory performance of Chinese cars attracted many visitors at the 15th Cairo International Motor Show on Friday, the first day open to the public.

At the entrance of Hall 4 of the Motor show held at the Cairo International Convention & Exhibition Center, a large brand of "Geely" and its auto model picture drew the attention of the visitors.

"We trust Geely, not only its price but also the quality and performance, that's why we chose to be an Egyptian agent of the car," Ali El Dosoky, sales manager of an Egyptian Motors company, told Xinhua.

Dosoky said although his company has recently begun marketing the Geely cars, which entered the Egyptian market three years ago,he has confidence on the prospect of Geely cars' sale.

Also on display is another model of Chinese car with the brand of UFO and the Egyptian name "Grand XPlosion."

After test-driving inside a "Grand XPlosion", Zena, a Lebanese lady who is working at an accounting company in Cairo, told Xinhua that she has been thinking of buying a Chinese car.

Zena said she has collected several brochures of Chinese car models and is making consultations with several agents of Chinese cars.

Yasser, sales manager of a company to market the "Grand XPlosion" in Egypt, said that his company will provide the after-sale service for the car to relieve customers from any problems.

For his part, Mohammed, a middle-aged engine expert expressed his satisfaction with the engine performance of China's Changhe Idea II model, which is labelled at the price of 39,900 Egyptian pounds (about 7,250 U.S. dollars).

"I planned to buy one for my sister and equip it with air-conditioner as the weather in the desert is very hot," he added, expecting the total cost to be about 50,000 pounds (about 9,090 dollars).

Compared with the luxury Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW, the cost-efficient Chinese cars are becoming more and more favorable for the Egyptians with an average monthly salary of about 70 dollars.

With five exhibition halls and an outdoor tent, the 15th Cairo International Motor Show, which will last until Jan. 28, attracted around 40 automakers and some auto spare part companies from all over the world.
