Official: BYD S7 coming to the Shanghai Motor Show

Here you have a car of Chinese origin that does not look like any other vehicle circulating on our roads, and that alone is worth mentioning. The BYD S7 is based on the S6, which is a SUV that is accused of being a copy of the Lexus RX500, but suffered many changes to make it more appealing.

Even the old engines in the S6 (a 2.0 liter and 2.4 liter units) were replaced by a newer turbocharged 2.0 liter engine with 207hp (210PS or 154kW) and 350Nm (258lb/ft) that was developed by the Chinese company, and is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission (DCT).

The interior also looks decent. It includes leather seats and an improved choice of materials, and has in general a very pleasant design, also thanks to the large screen in the center console.

BYD once said they want to sell their vehicles outside China, so it's only a matter of time before we see them in our roads.
