A number of Chinese cars in the 1950s and 1960s got their start from American and Russian designs, but the country is still having trouble advancing its own design language. China has the single largest automotive market in the world, but automakers still routinely "borrow" exterior designs from western companies, though the practice has become more controversial in 2017 than in the past.

Just recently, Land Rover and Chinese automaker Landwind (no relation) got into a legal skirmish over the Landwind X7's more than passing resemblance to the Range Rover Evoque. That skirmish ended predictably — Chinese courts sided with Landwind, and Chinese consumers can now buy something that looks a lot like an Evoque for a third of the price.
