It's got a 2.4-liter Mitsubishi motor, an extremely low price, and that's about it.

Mass production of these VWs started in Asia in 1985 and they are just going out of production at the end of this season!

3.) BYD F6
We remember the BYD F6 best from the time the time we got driven through the Detroit car program in a single. They truly are perhaps not awful vehicles, and generally are pretty typical on the ground over in Asia.

2.) Geely Panda
Look at this thing. It is China's first five-star crash score vehicle and it's also, as you can plainly see, freaking adorable. As of 2010 they will have also been selling them on the net. The engine is only a 1.3-liter, but whom cares whenever automobile can be so cute?
1.) FAW Warning Sign
It's good to end up being the king. These things will be the vehicles for heads of condition and you also usually see all of them in parade regalia. Under the hood you can get a 5.9-liter V12 and there's a good amount of room in the back the civilian variation, The whole thing isn't low priced, at about a half million Euros, but it is one damn good vehicle.
