Landwind Fashion

Chinese manufacturer Landwind are entering the heated midi-MPV market with the Fashion, which is available with either five or seven seats. This pitches it directly against the Renault Megane Scenic and the Opel Zafira, which in particular is enjoying buoyant sales. The Fashion will hope its low starting price of about US$16,000 will help it steal some of those customers, though taller ones may be put of by a tail-gate that only opens to face height. The Landwind Fashion adopts a suitably European aesthetic (it was designed by IDEA in Italy), albeit with a rather dated interior.

Powering the Fashion is a 1.6-liter or a 2.0-liter putting out 96PS and 140PS respectively. Key dimensions are: length 4410mm, width 1768mm, height 1640mm.
