Now, we've seen some pretty bad Chinese copies of American vehicles (blatant Ford F-150 ripoff (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/31/chinese-carmaker-blatantly-copies-ford-f-150/), anyone?), but this is just... ew. What you're looking at here is a yet-to-be-named crossover from Chinese company Dongfeng (http://autoblog.com/tag/dongfeng), clearly stealing many of its design cues from the decidedly handsome Cadillac SRX (http://autoblog.com/cadillac/srx).

According to Car News China, this Dongfeng... thing is likely based on the last-generation Kia Sorento (http://autoblog.com/kia/sorento), a vehicle that is still manufactured in the People's Republic as part of the Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia joint venture. The crossover will reportedly launch in the first half of 2013, powered by a Nissan (http://autoblog.com/nissan)-sourced 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
