Default Spotted: FAW Besturn X80, a Chinese SUV

Someone forwarded this asking what car this was. Bit of googling tells this is the Besturn X80, a Chinese make 5 seater SUV. I don't remember reading anything about this nor was I able to find any info on this in Zauba. Wonder what is the back story here

As usual, an absolute mishmash of design cues. Right from hyundai, to Ssangyong, to BMW.

My guess would be that its a test vehicle brought by Mahindra or Ssangyong to be developed for Indian market. Also saw it has 1.999L engine, so it might be deployed as is into the market with Delhi as main target, who knows

Looks beautiful.
FAW is a very competent and accomplished auto maker. I wouldn't mind seeing their cars in India either directly or through a local partner.
