New Chinese auto brand Hubeing a subbrand Beijing autodemonstrated in his first crossover Hu Ansu S55 all the characteristic features of the design of Japanese Lexus. Such indiscreet theft has recently been noticed a lot, especially in the Chinese car industry, but, probably, the Chinese designers have surpassed themselves by the example of this model. That only is the grille in the form of an hourglass, this is exactly the element on which it was possible to unmistakably guess the Lexus. The headlights of the Lexus were also characteristic, and today these pure Japanese “eyes” we see in the latter-day Chinese. It's easy to make a mistake now. The Chinese have brought chaos into established stereotypes, and, as always, they will get away with it again. Stamping new sub-brands is not engaged in China, only lazy.

Under the hood Hu S55 there is a 133-hp turbocharged engine, working in tandem with a five-speed manual transmission. This is a gasoline engine. Its volume is only 1.3 liters. It is clear that all-wheel drive here and does not smell. Have Senna X55 under the hood is a stronger, 1.5-liter engine with a turbine, showing the power of one hundred and fifty horses.
