The number of those who have heard of Chery Eastar is not very big, but it is worth seeing how the Chinese understand the idea to implement a mid-range luxury sedan.
Because we bet that the last time you wanted a car, it was not a Chery, we’ll refresh your memory on the label. It is famous, like all its Chinese sisters, so the plagiarism of the established models that Chery produced four years ago have even a convertible. The Eastar Convertible was inspired by the old Daewoo Evanda which is much fun and everyone acclaimed it. This time, it was the turn of a facelift for Eastar, so they tried to put the car in line with the leading mid-range saloons, like the Volkswagen Passat. We did not mentioned incidentally the Volkswagen Passat, because the new Eastar seems that is pretty much pulled the car sideways. If in the front, we can not see only one design that is perfectly banal and anonymous, we can not ignore the side of the car, which is full of VW origins. Fold to the bottom of the door, starting at the midline, the car has lost the right rear, front wheel and the C-pillar shape, so that they all appear discreetly taken from the Passat. The back brings a lot with the Germans Volfsburg, even though it’s more than a general impression and not the evidence given by certain details. There is no equipment, whoom Chery comes into the mid-range, that seems to be neglected: parking sensors, reversing video camera, trip computer, cruise control, automatic climate control and navigation system.
