Over the last year or so, the designs of Chinese made cars on the whole have increased dramatically. Gone are the boxy lines that were more reminessent of 1988, leaving us with some rather modern designs that are easily able to compete on the international stage. The below car, the FAW Besturn A501 is the latest motor to roll out from FAW under the Besturn name.The A501 was designed by ItalDesign Giugiaro spa. The A501 will be a ’sporty’ model, sold at around 100,000rmb. Engine power will come from either a 1.6 self developed motor, or the Mazda sourced 2.0l engine, which was used in the Mazda 6.

Re: FAW Besturn A501

Chinese car designs have comed a long way! Looks decent, though not a breakthrough.

A mix bag of Hyundai, Acura, Ford, Saturn cues. The wheels are still way too small.

Push the wheels out more to the 4 corners and use larger rims. Then it would look GOOD.

not bad. rear actually looks good.

The company who brought the Chana brand here in the Philippines "FAW" logo in their business card. We thought that they will launch the FAW here in the recently concluded Manila International Autoshow last April.

The rear looks okay, but the front and side looks bland and boring. Not very exciting for a "sporty" model. Which Mazda platform is it built on? The revised Mazda6?
