    The proportions recall the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the face looks like a Volvo and the tail lamps are very Peugeot-like. Yet, all in all it’s not that bad…

    The title should be “At the detroit motorshow the chinese company presented the E-Jet, a copy of the Mercedes CLA concept”…

    @Matt D: Frankly all I see is Mercedes CLA, the front grill, the headlights, the proportions, the side surface treatment… The back headlights do look peugeot, I´ll give you that, but the rest is CLA, if you place a Mercedes logo on that grill, you would see how many people would say it´s the new CLA. 😛

    Oh, I thought this is a small Merc and maybe the title is wrong.

    I agree 100% with all above. But copying is not only chinese. The Clio’s rear reminds of the ibiza’s, and so many other examples. Anyway I do think that chinese car makers should bear in mind that out of China copying is cheating. In China might be different and yes, their inside market rules.
