Hi guys,
So u thought it was only the Koreans and Chinese that copy car designs. Look at the Nissan Tilda and u'll see that even the Japs are turning into copycats. At first look, u will be forgiven for mistaking it for a Renault Megane. The rear looks very much like a Peugeot 307.








So heres a Japanese "Two Cars in One" Car.

I dont know if you have seen a quest, its minivan from nissan, this one looks like a mini quest to me..a lot like it..shrunk in size...





also talking about nissans, I think their new armada pathfinder is huge and looks pretty mean and manly..







It has a ton of room too..pretty good bang for the buck..wouldnt mind owning one in india..

Cheers
