The sedan is codenamed the CP2, and measures (LxWxH) 4480mm x 1770mm x 1462mm, and hsa a wheelbase of 2640mm which puts into into the B-segment against the Mazda6, the VW Passat, and other similar sized vehicles. Pricing has not yet been announced, but a conservative guess maybe in the 100,000rmb to 120,000rmb area. <p><IMG SRC="http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d156/shimon340/changfeng-cp2-factory-spy.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d156/shimon340/changfeng-cp2-factory-spy1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d156/shimon340/changfeng-cp2-factory-spy2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d156/shimon340/changfeng-cp2-factory-spy3.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d156/shimon340/changfeng-cp2-factory-spy4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Changfeng appear to only make a number a variants of an old Mitsubishi model.<p>Don't really understand the point of copying like this. I suppose its a compliment to Volvo's design and the fact the S40 is popular in China (built in a joint venture with Changan Ford)

Re: Changfeng clones the S40 (VolvoD)

Looks more like a copy of a Hyundai Sonata. There are only a few Volvo-esque points in a few specific areas. Overall I don't think it'd be confused with an S40 on the street. I've seen much worse actual cloning (bastardization?) examples (of Cherokee, Protege, Corolla, X5, etc) while on my travel through China.

Re: Changfeng clones the S40 (biotek)

Hmm. This'll probably date me (yet again <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> ), but that Geely "Lolls Loyce" calls to mind the "Rolls Royce" front trunk kit that you could get for a VW Beetle. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
