Hongqi H7 R&D

I asked my mom to scour the Chinese video sites for videos of Hongqis at the APEC Summit. She found this instead. The H7 is based on the Toyota Crown and is supposed to compete with the Audi A6L.

I hate to make you jealous, but my Twitter profile pic is me sitting in the back of a Hongqi H7. :) It was...a most regal experience. It also reminded me that while all comrades are equal, some comrades are more equal than others!

@Ed Kim: Lucky bastard. I heard the car is meh, but the back seat is pretty dope. Confirm?

The back seat was indeed dope. Although I can't say it was any better than the back seat in, say, an Infiniti Q70 LWB.

The best feature, which is common in Asian executive cars anyways, is the power front passenger seat controls for the right side rear passenger, who can max his/her legroom by moving the front passenger seat out of the way.

Also, the materials and build quality were as good as any Lexus - not surprising as the car is heavily based on the Crown.

Here are pics!
