Default Cars and Their Lookalikes!!!

Guys! Every one has seen Salman khan's ,Sanjay Dutt's lookalike But here the cars have some lookalike.
Sometimes You must have thought that using a look alike made by a local garage is bad.If Yes then do you have to say about this??
Lookalike made by some car companies.(mostly in china)
This is according to my eye,I have chosen some of the closet looking cars.They are many more but didnt have the time so here all what I could do..
But more to Come...........

Fasten Your Seat Belts as you are going for a rough Ride through a showroom of lookalikes.Have Fun.


1. Chevrolet Spark* and a look alike from China.

2. Honda Crv and Lookalike

3. Suzuki Baleno and Lookalike


4. Toyota Corolla and Lookalike


5.Hyundai Elantra and Lookalike


6.Mitshubishi Lancer and Nissan Sunny (since both are known names,maybe there was a linkup)

7. Mercedes Class (old version) And Lookalike

8. New Merc C class(middle) and Lookalikes


9. Merc Lookalikes
The steering is similar to that of a corolla,isnt it??


10.Now this is what I call a Lookalike Its huge and it is expensive too


So how was the ride through this showroom


Pics were taken from Google Images and arranged In photoshop.

I am really surprised to see the number of cars that the chinese have copied, can't believe even Elantra has a look alike and the chinese Rolls Royce looks awful.

I think copying is part of the learning curve... rather to go up the learning curve faster... some years later (a decade or two) we may be talking about fuel efficient Chinese cars... Japanese did reverse engineering for many years in many areas but were quick to learn and innovate and are market leaders.. same for Korean companies like Hyundai...

I think Indian companies should also do that.. it is a means for low cost engineering till you can afford to have own R&D and design centers... and we might see a few more Indian companies coming up in the Automotive space.

@SRK - Kia and Hyundai are same.

Why blame the Koreans when evn biggies like Toyota and Volkswagen are playing the same game. Take a look at the VW Jetta and Corolla.
