Great Wall Peri, the best Chinese car of 08!

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

We know we know, its barely gone 2008 and we’ve already decided that the coolest car of 08 is the Great Well Peri we have to wait until what we can see at the Beijing show in the next few months before we decide properly, but the Peri is just magic, and costing only 50,380rmb, we’re sure it will have plenty of takers.

The Peri was the reason for a legal spat between Great Wall Motors and Fiat over Fiats claim that Peri is a clone of a Fiat model.

Autohome, a Chinese motoring site recently reviewed the Peri and seemed to like it.The Peri seems jam packed full of storage space, and seems very well thought out for a car at its price! The 1.3 engine is a Mitsubishi sourced job self developed engine from Great Wall, paired to a 5 speed manual gearbox. Check out the pictures below to enjoy the Great Wall Peri.

The Peri measures 3.5m long, 1.5m wide, and 1.5m tall, thats not the best bit of all, check out the photos below.

    Obviously a copy of a Fiat. Also, made cheep (as in not quite as good).
    However, it is a “proven-product” and does what Chinese cars need to do, it runs well and efficiently.

    Mostly this car copy will give China the necessary auto making experience to move forward in car production. The money issues will be handled, obviously Fiat deserves some money, and truly they should be hired as consultants on Great Wall’s next car models.

    I expect to see far better automotive products “made in China” very soon, especially battery-electric cars.

    Who cares if it’s a copy or not. I’d rather pay $6,000 for a copy any day than $16,000 for the real thing. Honestly… if the peri get’s damaged, you could pretty much just get another one still for cheaper than buying the real deal. Who cares, it’s a throw away car. If all you’re after is to get from point A to point B, Peri is your car. If you want to get from point A to point B in luxury, then spend a $100,000 on a BMW.
