Chinese car companies are notorious for copying (or stealing) the designs of western carmakers, and these latest images from China’s BYD CAR show that they aren’t afraid to hold back either. The model above features an almost identical Mercedes CLK front-end and Renault Megane CC rear.

BYD has been around since 1968 and is mostly recognized for the manufacture of batteries, but the company still decided to copy the BMW logo with its own take on the famous badge. No company is safe from BYD’s imitative designs. Their website reveals cars that resemble models from Toyota, Daihatsu, Honda, Mercedes Benz, Buick, Subaru and the aforementioned BMW.

If China truly wants to compete on a world stage in the auto industry, the government has to be a lot tougher in controlling these manufacturers.

  1. Yes, BYD has successfully copied all the fragile, potentless styling of the RX body. The girls should love it, and out in the woods the fawns will probably suckle at its door handles.

  2. Chinese cars are not copycats but are of original designs. It may look similar but are not of illegal means.

  4. This is an original design of the greatest creativity. Consumers want the highest quality at the lowest price. Targeting BYD and China because they see the success of BYD and other chinese auto brand will fail. BYD is a great auto brand. BYD AND CHINA ALL THE WAY!!!!
