Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Driveway -

IT looked very much like a new Range Rover Evoque: same sig­na­ture wedge body shape, lights, grille and bumpers, but there were sub­tle dif­fer­ences.

In­stead of a chromed Range Rover badge across the bon­net’s nose, it read LandWind.

The smart-look­ing X7 was one of the stars of last week's Guangzhou mo­tor show, but it didn’t im­press Jaguar Land Rover, which has just signed a deal with Ch­ery to pro­duce some of its mod­els in China.

It even looks like an Evoque inside, but some items, such as the steer­ing wheel, air­con vents, in­stru­ment clus­ter and gear­lever are dif- fer­ent. So is the price: TheX7 is less than half the price of an Evoque.

LandWind is a prod­uct of Jian­gling Mo­tors Hold­ings.

Jaguar Land Rover, owned by In­dia’s Tata group, has com­plained and is con­sid­er­ing le­gal ac­tion.

Range Rover Evoque? No, it's a LandWind X7.
