Great Wall Coolbear, totally cool.

greatwall motors 300x225 Great Wall Coolbear, totally cool.

Great Wall may have come under a lot of attacks lately for its amazing ability to clone cars, but lets face it – the Coolbear is sporting the design the Scion Xb should have been.

For more pictures, click continue reading…

The Greatwall Motors Coolbear will come with a 1.5l Euro 5 engine mated to a manual gearbox, although they might launch an automatic version sometime in the future.

CCT has had a minor love affair with the Coolbear, ever since it was launched as a concept car in Beijing way back in 2006. Hopefully we’ll be able to test drive one soon. Prices for the Coolbear have yet to be announced, certain websites say around 95,000RMB.

If we were in the market for a compact MPV, we’d give the Coolbear a serious look over, the interior looks reasonable (although for 95,000rmb we’d expect leather) but the lack of an automatic gearbox is a real blow. The Coolbear is sure to be a hit with the Coolbears and fashionistas in China, and abroad.

    great wall work with toyota for a while, especiall with those older models like safe, deer and other, even some of spare parts had original toyota logo, also during presnetation of new models like coolbear and florid, even toyota was called to participate at that presentation, it will be little bit stupid to call those from which you made a copy right???

    What are you complaining about? Every last bit of the xB is copied here, so closely that I’d bet my xB that Toyota sold the tooling to Great Wall. If Toyota doesn’t want to keep building this car–which is so, so much better than its replacement–why not be happy that they’re letting somebody else build it instead? I mean, seriously, this isn’t a copy, it’s the same car. No way Toyota didn’t have something to do with that. I want these sold in the US and I want to see them outsell the current xB and show Toyota the error of their ways.
