A couple of those are already badge-engineered cars. The Chinese version of the Nissan truck thing has the front end of a (American version at least) Frontier. As far as I know about that Smart car (which is not much), it's also imported by different companies or something to different countries...I think.

Most of those aren't even close.

The SUVs are mostly just random frontends grafted onto old Isuzu Rodeo bodies of various lengths.

The Chinese do the same thing the Sovients did back in the Cold War - they get their hands on various items, rip them apart, and replicate every single piece.

What do those have in common?

Oh, they're both SUV.



In most cases does it even matter? They're built in China for the Chinese market where they probably cost a quarter what the originals did.

Except it was being compared to an XTrail, not a Frontier.

The BMW ripoff looks like an '06 Camry
