Chinese automaker Sichuan Yema has locally launched the T70 which combines styling cues from various models.

If the company's name rings a bell, that's because the Chengdu-based carmaker has already ripped off the design of the Lamborghini Urus with a new SUV based on an archaic Austin Rover Maestro platform. Now, they're back with a new model that looks a lot like the Volkswagen Touareg but with a Land Rover front grille and Jeep Grand Cherokee-like taillights. Step inside the cabin and you will notice that even the infotainment system sends a strong VAG vibe.

As far as technical specifications are concerned, the Yema T70 is powered exclusively by a four-cylinder 1.8-liter engine developing 131 bhp (98 kW) and 170 Nm (125 lb-ft) sent to the wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox. The same engine can be had with 158 bhp (118 kW) and 215 Nm (158 lb-ft) coupled to a six-speed CVT wrapped around in a body weighing 1,565 kg (manual version is 50 kg lighter).

The Yema T70 is 4555mm long, 1835mm wide and 1715mm tall and rides on 17-inch wheels wrapped around in 225/65 R17 tires. It has an independent front & rear suspension with a MacPherson front and a multi-link rear arrangement, along with a hydraulic steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
