The Chinese new Bestune B70 copies the design of the Cadillac CT5

The Chinese sedan Bestune B70 presented today has a very similar appearance to the American Cadillac CT5. This is especially true of vertical headlights. The car was shown at the Beijing Motor Show (China).

Chinese automakers have a nasty habit of brazenly “borrowing” design elements from well-known brands and using them in their cars. The latest example of this is the third-generation FAW Bestune B70, formerly known as the Besturn B70. This car, which was presented at the ongoing Beijing Motor Show (China), is very similar to the American Cadillac CT5.

The similarity in their design is easy to notice, although FAW has made considerable efforts to give the design a certain zest. The B70 gives a better idea of ​​the American CT5 in terms of its profile. Here it is easy to see the shape of the interior of the B70 and the fact that it has the same rear end as the Cadillac.

The lighting elements also look the same, although they better match what is on the new CT4, as the B70 mimics the “high” design of Cadillac.

However, despite all the similarities, there are small differences. At the front, the headlights frame a vertical radiator grille, which is not at all similar to what we see on Cadillac models. A similar story in the rear of the car – a full-size light element covers the taillights, which go into the car body.

The new B70 is equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 169 horsepower. The engine will run on a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the Chinese Songsan Summer is copying the classic Volkswagen T1 minibus. One of the most original novelties of the Beijing Motor Show 2020 is a retro copy of the legendary German Volkswagen T1 minibus. It was this model that once became a real symbol of its era.
