But its not a flying saucer that is hitting CCT headlines today, its a five door UFO that’s stirring up the trouble. Jonway UFO started their car making business with a first generation 3 door Toyota RAV4 clone. Sales have been low from what we can gather, but we do think the three door UFO is rather smart, if a little shabby on the inside.
The new UFO, a five door version, takes off from where the old UFO left off. Its a small compact SUV, this time it has five doors, and looks a lot like the currently imported RAV4 (but soon to be domestically made by FAW-Toyota) Even the crease on the rear tyre cover has been incorperated into the new UFO’s design, for comparison a picture of the tyre cover on the 2008 RAV4 can be found here, a front picture can be found here. As the ‘Made in China’ brand tries to pull itself away from the days of cloning products and reselling them under a different name, companies like UFO come along and add more fuel to the fire!
The 5 door UFO’s engine is currently unknown, but it is expected to be of Mitsubishi stock. Price, or launch date are still unknown. With FAW-Toyota on the verge of starting RAV4 production in China, CCT thinks that FAW may put the slap down on UFO before this model reaches the showroom.
