Remember Jiangling Motor’s Range Rover Evoque “clone,” the Landwind X7? Well, the model has received a facelift in an attempt to distance itself visually from its British counterpart.

The exterior revisions begin at the front, with the X7 receiving a new grille, headlamps and bumper. If you look closely, both the upper and lower grilles feature a mesh with an oval-shaped pattern as well, as reported by CarNewsChina.

Meanwhile, the rear of the X7 has been totally revamped with wider taillights that are linked by a chrome trim piece. The liftgate also get reshaped here, with the number plate holder pushed further downwards, and all the badges have been repositioned too. Further down, the exhaust outlets are no longer integrated into the lower apron.

Looks aside, the X7 also gets a new 1.5 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 160 hp, which forms the entry-level version in the range. The previous 2.0 litre turbo with 188 hp (detuned Mitsubishi-sourced 4G63T) will continue to be offered. The updated X7 will reportedly be priced from just under 100,000 yuan (RM63,199). Interested?
