Despite the X7 being the subject of an intense legal dispute, LandWind dealerships are now selling various kits, including grille and badge, to further the illusion of an Evoque. What is even more alarming is that these kits appear to include a green oval ‘Land Rover’ badge.
The LandWind and Land Rover argument started back in November, when the X7 was unveiled bearing more than a striking resemblance to the popular Evoque. With Land Rover’s objections quashed by Chinese authorities, LandWind has now gone one step further.
The only difference between Land Rover’s UK-built and Chinese-built Evoques is the joint venture name badge. However, the X7 is a completely unrelated car under the Range Rover-esque bodywork. The X7 is actually longer by five centimetres.
With reports of X7s featuring bubbling paint issues and panel gaps that would put even the roughest of Land Rover Series vehicles to shame, there really is no comparison.
