Kinda look like an early Elantra up front, with a BMW bumper, and the Mercedes wagon back end of previous generation. Not a bad looking car, but they will have to work on the safety if they want to export this thing outside of China.

Actually, save for the W211-ish rear quarters, the car, as all Brilliance designs, is a pretty original one, penned by Giugiaro. Of all Chinese automakers, I have the highest hopes for Brilliance, and can't forgive BMW for not letting them take Rover. Those cars as Rovers, with more up-to-date Rover/BMW engineering, could've been a true rebirth of the British (Leyland) Empire...

I see some heavy BMW influence.

Only Chinese....:rolleyes: Definitely looks like Brilliance is doing best of the Chinese automakers so far in terms of design, this isn't bad looking.

Hopefully they work to improve their horrible safety as much as they can to avoid being called B***S***4 for the name of the car.

It's a good design, and surely, if they do export it to North America, it will be a best looking Asian car in its debut year. I am not sure about the Japanese, but I heard their FIRST cars to US wasn't pretty, and for Koreans as well, their first Excel was not considerred as a GOOD looking car, just ordinery. This Brilliance BS4 looks way better as a first car to be sold in North America if they make it.

I too, believe, Brilliance makes the most unique design for a Chinese company though they maybe derivative and just as bad as Hyundai's new Genesis sedan which is nothing more than a mish-mash of other brands, I do like them more than their Chery's which were nothing more than a ripped off Mercedes, Kia, and Daewoo among others, and tacking their logo on and pretends as if it was originally designed by them in the first place.
