    Default Geely CK or Lifan 520... a tough competition?

    though not a big fan of chinese cars, i found these to be very attractive in the price which they are offered, and most importantly, both have been successfully crash tested.. considering the fact that our local cars have never been crash tested

    the quality of chinese products is a big question mark for sure but same was the verdict for suzuki vehicles long ago.. but now we all know that they are the best sellers today..

    coming back to the point which one do u think is a better buy, the newly launched LIFAN 520 or the existing GEELY CK

    LIFAN 520

    Geely engine is not designed by toyota rather its a copy of toyota engines from 90's. It looks like a 4E or 5A

    according to wikipedia:

    The CK is based on a South Korean design by Daewoo, Tower Metal, Wooshin Systems, and CES, which Geely licensed. Its 1.5 L engine is a Toyota Motor Corporation design, also licensed. It produces 94 hp (70 kW) at 6000 rpm. The automatic transmission is built in China, the first to be manufactured there.

    @lotus: no chance of seeing these cars on the roads in significant number...our people do not accept change easily...

    i've been to Geely showroom, as well as Proton...like 'em both.

    Kia, Hyundai, Chevrolet are still struggling...so long way for the Chinese...

    That will happen only if we buy these cars. Not by discussing only. Are you going to do that? 99% will say no and companies like nissan, mitsubishi, hyundai, Kia, proton and these chinese are living proof of such mentality of this nation. Only good thing is that they are surviving somehow but future is not bright for any of them regarding sales.

    if u have hard earned money and u dont wana take risk by buying one of these out of market cars, it make sense... but people who have 3-4 cars in their garage, loves to keep evos & rx8 still cant think beyond honda toyota stuff!! at least they can bring competition in, by encouraging these new comers... y do these people look for resale??

    I personally like LIFAN, if they price it lowest as compare to other local Japanese and Market it , I'm sure it going to capture the market... Chinese product cost r lesser becoz of cheap labour etc...!

    Geey CK crash test is horrible while Lifan has shown great protection for occupants. Lifan should come here early and more importantly should be priced logically too
