Chinese BYD F6 sedan



Nice looking.
If you don't mind a car with styling elements from avery other sedan produced...

And, I would love to see some crash test results on that one....

I'm sorry, maybe I'm dyslexic, but does the title read 'Honda Accord Sedan'?

;)

It looks like any number of mid-size models from anywhere in the world, as it should if it is to be competitive. I think it improves on the Honda Accord, particularly the pug-ugly one made for the US market.

Those watered down S-Class tail lights are hilarious.

Japanese copied their way into the auto market, then the koreans copied their way into the auto market, now the chinese are copying their way into the auto market. Whats the big deal?

I see a touch of 90s Civic and Mazda 323, a lot of S-Class, a hint of Hyundai Elantra and just a sprinkling of Rover 400. You've got to credit the Chinese with something, they are very handy with Photoshop..

After seeing the miserable crash test results of Chinese built cars, the Chinese should just stick to making rubber toys, good take-out and counterfeit DVDs.

It'll be interesting to see just how much the test dummy is folded into this tin can in a crash test. The Chinese conspicuous design theft won't cover up the reality that they can't seem to engineer a car properly.

Vince, you just wasted 1/2 hr of your time posting this crap on your site. I like original makes.

I agree with 9:55AM. Now for another point others have brought up time and again. Please excuse my ignorance...but whom exactly did the Japanese copy their cars from? (Generally speaking of course.) I know about the 240Z being inspired by the Jaguar E type and the original Honda Civic probably would be close to the Mini but what else? Thanks for the help.

JM, I think what 4:00 AM was referring to were the first japanese cars of the 30s and the 40s, which were very similar to various American models (The first Toyota, for example, looked very much like a Chrysler Airflow). The models you mention are much later, when the Japanese industry was already well established.

I like the C-pillar. It has some hints from my old Hyunday Stellar, as well as from the Altezza.

The Accord should have had as nice a butt when the current model first came out.

Simply read any book on the origins and history of the auto industy.

Vince,

Did you know that BYD stands for Build Your Dream? What they don't specify is that they build your dream (car) from others makers parts bin...
Don't really know if it's funny or scary...

I have no problem with car designers being "inspired." when they just put their badge on an existing car then i have a big problem. it seems most if not all these new chinese cars are basically and literally just rebadging an existing car!

Thanks guys. I had a feeling Japan making copycars on a large scale might have been pre-60's-70's.
