Hi friends..
Chinese are coming with their cars! Beware! What is the world coming too!!
Chinese air-conditioner maker AUX have introduced their first Suv called Raytour. The car looks more like a take off on the palio adventure rather than a full fledged SUV! but compare that italian beauty with this weird and confused raytour! I wonder it the company put in the motor of one of the Air-Conditioners they make! As if the koreans were not enough! To make matters worse the company plans to launch a pick up and sedan too! Chinese make cheap stuff and indians love cheap things.Is it a matter of time before this car gets launched here? I am goin to immigrate to afghanistan if that happens!

why does it have a small rear door like a double cab???
Also its wierd havin an angular wheelarch in the front and a rounded one for the rear.
The only part that looks good is the rear.

This thing is a joke!!! At the very most, it will surely offer a good aircon for its occupants.

Hmm. The door size.... Many more things to complain about. But that's not the point, is it?
Just one question from all Indians, "Average kya hai?"

Chinese Cars - Made in China !
The Beijing "Heroic", based on the engine/transmission of the Jeep "Cherokee" (model previously produced under license). The "Heroic", launched in the 2000, is one of the few Chinese cars designed indipendently (although the engine is american, and the coachwork is probably realized in collaboration with Western designers). It's not bad...

the car reminds me of my Geometry classes in school. Has a circle[wheels], triangle [brake lights], etc etc. Now i'm not very good in Geometric shapes.
