It is based on the Frontera. Apparently, they're going to try selling the 'Landwind' SUV here in Europe once it meets EU crash regs (apparently, they've got it to match the three stars of the Frontera it's based on now! Though if you ask me, we should be expecting a lot more than that of a new car now. I wouldn't buy one.)

Looks like the McLaren F1 is a pretty safe car to have a crash in; shame a carbon fibre monocoque is so expensive
