Hafei Loujun

Hafei Loujun was one of many compact minivans on display on this year's Auto China 2006. Located in a rather obscured area of the main 1A hall at the show, Loujun in many ways deserved a better stage. Surprising many of the observers, Loujun was designed by Pininfarina, and the overall styling displayed solid volume with crisp and refined surfacing.

Standing just around 4000mm, thus in a tough position to compete against of Japanese minivans, the key styling theme of Loujun was to give a solid stance. With 17-inch alloy wheels supported by large wheelarches and a pronounced sill volume running from the front to the rear bumper, the vehicle indeed stands firm to the ground.

A single, robust shoulder line running down from D-pillar and wrapping around the vehicle acts as the styling 'anchor', that defines the boundaries for details such as the headlamps and radiator grille. The rear-end styling is simple and effective, where the shutline boundaries, which runs around the rear fender sets the boundary lines for the tailgate opening, tailamps and the two-tone rear bumper.
