    Default Front Angle similarities of Mercedez A160 and REVO

    I don't want to discuss anything with any Know Nothing, Jackass smarties here, If anyone has any issue, you have to prove by LOGICAL STATEMENTS and not just ONE LINERS......... OK

    Now, if anyone has the problem with copying issue. This is all normal, this is how all the automakers do it now.
    They adopt the styling from the LEADING TREND SETTERS.

    Lexus has been purely trying to emulate and copy Mercedez Benz, from the start. The LS400 of Lexus in 1990, which I had owned, looked very similar to Mercedez S series. Even the interior eminities were same as was Mercedez was offering. Adam Motors, indeed have chosen one of the best Auto-makers Mercedez to emulate.



    Now, lets get it on.

    I recently came across 1999 Mercedez Benz for Sale in Islamabad for 16 Lakh, and was amazed to notice that how much similarity is there, from Front side, between Our Pakistani Revo, and the Mercedez Benz A160.

    Have severe doubts...
    Check out yourself.

    Front Angle similarities of Mercedez A160 and REVO -478234



    Great Job Indeed...




    I do realize that there is difference in the workmanship of the two... But, Adam Motors have done a great job in designing and choosing to follow the best.

    Although this car Revo is made to compete against mehran. Adam Motors could easily have just tried to adapt some features of Mehran, design wise, but they chose one of the best cars in the World. Mercedez Benz. That is one hell of a great job, considering it was there first Attempt.

    Performance wise, there are many personal testimonials by the owners of Revo car in the Revo Fan Club. They all love it. Many of them have previously owned, Suzuki Mehran, and are glad to have found this new Alternative to Suzuki Mehran. For its price, 2.89 Lakh, and its immediate competition Mehran, as a comparison, this car has, far exceeded everyone's expectations, whom have either driven or owned a Mehran in the past and are now Revo Owners.

    This car is definately a great bargain, and truly the Value for the money. As the Adam Motors claims, Big on Value. It is indeed HUGE on Value.

    Comfortwise this car is far better than Mehran. Looks are contemporary, and not from 1980s, like in case of Mehran.

    Yeah, this car is not only the CHEAPEST in Pakistan, even the spares are cheaper than Mehran, since Omar Jibran, another firm owned by Adam Motors, makes many parts locally for Revo as well as for Mehran and some other locally assembled cars.

    How should I know about its price brother. Look at my description, I am in US. Just kidding brother, I will search for you.

    There is Adam Motors website.

    www.adammotor.com they have all the information.

    But as courtesy I will let you know what I have found out.

    The car starts at around only 2 Lakh and 89,000 only, and now you can Book the car for 99,000 Rupees only and pay the remainder of 1 Lakh and 90,000 on Delivery after 90 days.

    Yes you can get this car in with AC or CNG or Both.
    But as of now they do not have the option of Automatic. Maybe, later, if enough of Pakistanis buy and support this car, they will definatley offer it.


    They also have two options of Engine.

    A Basic 800cc, which is the cheapest.

    The EFI 1050cc, with AC and CNG is around 4 Lack and 39,000 Rupees.

    Hope it helps.

    please visit www.adammotor.com for more details and dealership info.

    datzburier, these two designs would seem similar to some but what i see are huge diffrences. Please look at the following aspects of the two designs separately. Dont look at the whole picture:

    A-Pillar: On the Benz the A-Pillar is truly integrated into the front fender at the same angle. This is clearly untrue for the Revo.

    Fender: The Revo has bulging fender flares where as the Benz has its fender integrated with a even flowing design and much more muscular.

    Hood: The only highlight which makes these two designs seem similar is the louvred hood. As Mercs have a louvered hood which means the grille is higher and more prominent with a fold going all the way up the hood and then finally blending in.

    I think this louvered design aspect makes the two seem similar.

    @nick.... He he.... datz always has the guns ready to defend the Revo......

    @storm bhai, yes.. you had made a real good point bro. about the Merc. and Revo having similar structure, specially around the side mirror area. No other car has that, and initially people were joking about REVO's huge Side mirror mold. But now look at who else has that similar large area around Side mirrors, but Merc. has installed a glass instead of Plastic to cover that big gap around the side mirror assembly.

    @man1. You have your way of looking at things, I respect that, and not every one thinks alike, and thats why we have diversity in thinking, which is a good thing, I might add.

    Like I've said earlier, the design is SIMILAR..I did not say 100% exact same copy. There is a difference in being similar, i.e. following somewhat similar design cues, but making your own design.

    Merc. also has larger windshield, and to blend that HUGE windshield with the bonnet, they used the seamless A-Pillar design to blend in with the fenders. Sort of like Toyota Previa, Minivan, very common in US, or for that matter, even most other American Minivans, that use, similar A-pillar structure to blend in with fenders.

    But this merc. is unique, its not a minivan, but a sub compact car, the size of Revo, probably slightly larger.

    I think this is the first time, I have just compared the two, and to be honest, I think not even Adam Motors is aware of this ACCIDENTAL similarity. As I have been searching about this car for a year now, and the initially design cues for Revo, were from a Chinese Model, XJ80 or some other weird name like that. Adam Motors imported the Engine from Wuling of China, and also shares the Headlights, and Tail lights from that Model XJ80.

    But the front, the side, and all the other design are 100% Adam Motors original creation.

    At another post, I compared Revo with Toyota Vitz. It has aweful lot in common with that car as well, but only from the side. Due to both being Cab-Forward design.

    You will find more similarities ... because ...

    BOTH ARE CARS!

    They have this general conception when designing one ... sloped bonnet, upright hatch in case of hatchbacks, lights on the SIDE of the bonnet ... duh! More ... how about ... 2 wheels in front under the engine ... etc etc etc.

    You can put the Vitz you checked from the side angle earlier in compare to the Mercedes here with a side angel and it will be similar I can bet that. Or any other modern hatch.

    But yea ... this car isnt based on old design at least in the shape. Agreed on that ...

    Ha Ha....
    You're a funny man.

    But, how come Cuore, Santro, Alto, Civic, Corolla, Buick, Chevy, Oldmobile, Pontiac, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce.. Whatever man whatever.. How come they don't look similar to This Merc. They all have wheels, they all have tires, they all are made of metal, they have headlights, they all run on Petrol, they all are made by humans.....

    But they don't have similarities like Revo and Mercedez..


    Now your turn to throw another funny line...
