    Appears they have changed the grille from the 5 horizontal chrome bars, and fascia, we saw earlier..

    I did a test drive of the L7 SUV a few months back. The quality was shocking, worse than many local producers. It’s a shame as otherwise I quite liked the car. Hopefully they sort the quality issue out with their newer models.

    Shocking? I noticed the steering wheel was almost comically sized but I didn’t see much that I’d call shocking – aside from the baby diarrhea color it comes in.

    Maybe the Taiwanese ones are better. The one I drove had bumpers that were poorly attached to the body. Loose leather trim on door handles plastic inserts on the steering wheel that flexed, gaps in the plastic on the dashboard, general poor quality plastics.

    I know the car I drove was two years old but it hadn’t done a particularly high mileage. Maybe it was a pre-production model but Dongfeng Luxgen were rather silent on the matter.

    Sounds like a pre-production model!
