Somebody! Stop that van! The weird-lookin' van, yes, that one. It stole the styling straight off a BMW! Those kidney beans in the front are a dead giveaway."
That's an extremely exaggerated reaction that we might expect from a car dude, if somebody ever saw the Jinbei Haixing X30 out on the streets. In reality, it didn't technically "steal" anything, it's just heavily influenced by the German brand, and acceptably so. The car was built from a subsidiary of Brilliance Auto, which has a partnership with BMW for the Chinese market. This little nugget's got a 1.3L engine that puts out just 87 horsepower. How cute.
