The Hong Kong – Shenzhen-Macao International Auto Fair saw the unveiling of the Chery A5 1.5 L Automatic which comes in 3 trims namely the Standard, Elite & Luxury Edition.

Let’s give a round of applause for the arrival of the pink lady bug (Chery QQme or S16) slated to launch in June 2009. This 4 –seat 2 – door minicar has a 2315 mm long wheelbase & will be equipped with a 1.3 –liter Gasoline Engine which generates peak power of 62 KW. In the safety department, this lady in pink comes with airbags, ABS + EBD along with reversing radar. Source : Sina via

Personally I feel the Mini inspired interior design language is a small step forward in terms of the quality of materials used but I just can't swallow the Grandma's Rocking Chair door handle that makes the door panel look like a smiley with one red eye.
