Li Nian Everus Sedan – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Beijing Motor Show is well under way, and Honda is showing off a new concept slated for the Chinese market. Called the Li Nian Everus, the car is the fruit of a partnership between the Japanese automaker and its Chinese partner, Guangqi Honda Automobile. We don't have too many details on the sedan other than the fact that at this point, it's nothing more than a concept.

Judging by the renderings, we're tempted to guess this thing has more than a little Civic DNA swimming around in its blood stream, though it looks like Honda raided the Acura design department for the car's less-than-traditional nose and rear-end.

Speaking of the Civic, it would make some sense if Honda swapped a little sheet metal and called it a day. Honda's compact is sold under the Dongfeng Honda banner, leaving Guangqi Honda Automobile without a comparable model. Our guess is that when the Everus comes to market, it will be slightly more upscale and boast more standard niceties than its sibling.

      There are no words that can accurately convey how atrocious this thing is.

        Well the name, plumb year (the direct translation) pretty sums up how ugly it is. How does a fruit and year have anything to do with this car?

        Goes from kinda cool to blimp to ugh, front to rear.

      That's just a Honda City with a different nose and tail. It slots in under the Civic in the line-up, and is based off the Fit/Jazz platform. I think it's been on sale for close to a year, if not more, in many parts of the world.

      If you want to see the real thing instead of "concept renderings" just Google the Honda City. Jeez Autoblog.

        It USED to work fine, until about a week ago. Now every time I hit the gallery it just brings me back to the main page.
