Chery is looking at dropping its Pininfarina-styled M14 on the US market soon. Chinese news agency Xinhua is all like "later this year,"
but this year is like "see ya,"
so maybe by "this year"
they really mean "next year."
Either way, we'll be happy to take one for a spin while bearing in mind the convenient fold-up design
we've seen from Chinese cars
being crash tested
recently. They've made some improvements, and they'll continue to get better on the safety front. With the M14, Chery actually has an attractive car on its hands, even if the lines are derivative of other vehicles. Powertrains are either a 1.6L or 2.0L engine with the choice of manual or CVT transmission. While we're not holding our breath for this car under the Christmas tree, it'll stir some interest whenever it does arrive in the U.S.
