Great Wall's track record isn't good, I agree with you. But like other Chinese automakers, they are moving away from copying at their own pace.

They went from very blatant clones, like the Coolbear (Scion xB) and the Peri (Panda) to less blatant clones like the aforementioned C30 and C50. This car is another small step forward. You can pick up some Volkswagen, especially the interior and the headlights. But it's better than GW's previous attempts.

I suppose, but the mechanicals generally are cloned from other makers, which is sad. Brilliance, Luxgen and other seem to be able to come up with cars on their own. Even Chery seems to be doing OK (although they need to stop making so many models and focus on a solid core lineup).

It looks so horribly generic and uninspired.

Aren't most other SUV's? Since when did anyone swoon over a Toyota RAV4? Or a Nissan X-Trail? Or a Hyundai Santa Fe?
