2017 CopyCat Awards
"Not all snowflakes are the same, but yours is too close to another."
2017 was a great year on record for our CopyCat Awards. That is because we only handed out four (4) in total. Only one (1) product on this years CopyCat list is borrowing a profile. This means the other three (3) are almost exact copies. 2017 would have been a banner year, if all of the awards were handed out for part copies. But with full on copycats in our midst, 2017 was just another year in automotive design.
2017 Changan CS95 (copy of a 2016 Ford Explorer)
from issuing a CopyCat Award.
If Changan was owned by Ford, then this model would be acceptable. But since they are not, this model would be classified as a CopyCat. Since Changan decided against any major overhaul of the Explorer (minus the front grille), they have received this award. Guess we will have to wait until next time to see if they learn their lesson.
