Huansu’s C60 Hyosow is heavily inspired in looks by Lamborghini’s new SUV but gets a 194hp, 2.0-litre engine, unlike the Urus’ 650hp, 4.0-litre V8 unit.
There has been no shortage of car clones coming out of the China. We have seen a Chinese carmaker copy Range Rover’s Evoque and Tesla’s Model S; there was even a firm that was fined for copying BMW’s logo. Well, the latest copy comes in form of a Lamborghini Urus. The vehicle in question has been made by Huansu, one of several brands under the major Chinese automaker, BAIC Motor. The model name is reportedly C60, but it also has the name Hyosow on the back.
In terms of design, the Chinese brand has done very little to differentiate it from the Lamborghini. The SUV has a grille that is very similar, but gets its own LED fog-light layout. The lines towards the side of the car are similar but tweaked mildly in order to seem like it is not a blatant copy. The same can be said about the tail-light and rear design – it has just been mildly reworked. Overall, the car shares its silhouette with the Lamborghini but gets significantly smoother lines instead of the sharp ones seen on the real deal.
This SUV uses a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine that makes around 194hp. The Lamborghini Urus on the other hand, uses a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 developing 650hp. The Huansu C60 Hyosow is expected to be priced around $20,000 (approx. Rs 13.4 lakh), making it 23 times cheaper than the Lamborghini Urus that is priced at Rs 3.10 crore (ex-showroom).
