Click above for a gallery of the Chery Faira range

Chery will show off its new Faira range of five compact cars at Auto China this week, and thanks to the gang at Autoblog Chinese, we have some decent-sized photos. to share. Power across the range comes from a 60-hp 1.3L ACTECO four-cylinder, though China Car Times says that the sporty Faira YY (above) could get a 1.5L. The rundown on the models is as follows:
  • Faira: 3-door two-passenger hatch. In the gallery, it's the blue one with the big smile.
  • Faira JJ: 5-door crossover complete with matte fender cladding. Not likely to provoke exclamations of, "Dyn-o-mite!"
  • Faira HH: 4-door notchback sedan
  • Faira YY: Sportier-looking 3-door. If it gets the 1.5L, it would likely have 80 hp or so.
  • Faira 5-door: Pretty self explanatory. We don't know its letter designation.
Interestingly, all five Faira models have unique fascias. Some obviously share headlights, but the grille shapes and placements vary. We'll hopefully have more on these when Auto China kicks off in Beijing this week. Until then, you can check out all five Fairas in the gallery below.

      At least it's got a bold design like a misguided Citroen.
      It might be no better then a Daewoo but at least it does not look like one.

      Massive design infringement from the likes of Toyota, Chevy and Fiat.

      "Faira" sounds what this vehicle will explode into when the driver crashes it due to not being able to see out the tiny windshield.

      When it comes to Chinese built cars I'd rather have a Chelfing Automotive Lunge SUV anyday...

      I wonder how fast this tin can will crush on a 10 mph impact?

      I wonder how Japanese and Korean automakers are reacting to all of this China car development. I do not see the Japanese home market going for Chinese cars -- but the worldwide competition is going to be fierce in the next ten years.

      We in the U.S. are in so much trouble. The U.S. and EU basically gifted all of this advanced automobile technology to the Chinese. High gas prices are going to force everyone (in the world) into smaller, cheaper cars. Japanese cars will soon be the BMWs and Audis of small cars at current price points, while the Chinese will be the Hyundais and VWs.

        A lot of people have been saying this, but I contend that Chinese automakers have many more hurdles to overcome than Korean and Japanese automakers had. Chinese industry is chaotic, and designing safe, original vehicles that are going to appeal on a worldwide market in my opinion is going to take Chinese companies much longer to figure out.

        Show me a Chinese car worth selling in the states in large numbers, and you'll change my mind, but I don't really see that happening as fast as many are saying...

      If I were the Koreans, or Peugeot/Citroen, or SEAT, or Fiat, or............
      I would be very worried.

      If the Japanese cars were not supported by a ridiculously undervalued Yen, China would be on their heels already.

      the rear quarter reminds me of a mazda 2 in the 3/4.

      Yellow car looks good. I would think about buying a chinese car when they come stateside. If anyone thinks that is supporting communism, you are dumb.
