    Beijing 2014: Haval Coupe Concept

    Haval Coupe Concept debuts on the Beijing Auto Show
    BY JOEY WANG
    APRIL 21, 2014
    Car News China

    The Haval Coupe Concept debuted today on the Beijing Auto Show. The Haval Coupe is a sporty mid-size SUV previewing a sporty mid-size SUV that will be launched on the China car market in 2016. The vehicle looked impressive with a huge grille and heavy bumper. Interestingly, Haval didn’t use any chrome up front.

    Great window line there around the C-pillar. Large door handles, as pointed out by the girl wearing an impossibly tight black dress, contrasting perfectly with kinda-gold kinda-gray paint.

    Wow. Very good. It's derivative of many other vehicles, but very nice. As a concept, anyway.

    Why do 4 door SUV's get to be called "Coupes"?

    Don't care much for this. The front sucks and side looks too drawn out to me.

    Actually watch out for Haval. Great Wall is doing a great job since they split it off as its own brand. The H6 sells around 300,000 units a year.

    It's the dumbest trend in the automotive industry. Either give us a real coupe or stop the nonsense, it's not fooling anyone.

    Re: Beijing 2014: Haval Coupe Concept

    Coupe is just a name to the Chinese it doesn't mean a body style like coachbuilders used to use.
    I have never worked out what the Sport is in an SUV and for that matter Utility, most are just 2000 versions of 1930 configurations. I am still confused as to what crossover is supposed to mean.
