Landwind X7. 2015–19 (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/F, 1997 cm³ (I4 OHC). Shameful rip-off of Range Rover Evoque (L538), as Landwind played a loophole with the patent law in China, exploiting Land Rover’s failure to file a patent within the first six months of showing its product in China. Far less sophisticated than Evoque, sporting an SOHC Mitsubishi turbo, and far cheaper, too. Dimensionally larger, with bigger screen on board, and admittedly of better quality inside than some other Chinese efforts. MacPherson struts at front, multi-link suspension at rear. A Chinese court eventually found in Land Rover’s favour in 2019.

Manufacturing location: Nanjang, Jiangxi, China

Marque: Landwind | Successor: Landwind Rongyao
