Introduction

We all know people like this. They are well-qualified, have good jobs, dress impeccably, have all the right accessories and know all the cool places to be. But do you want to hang out with them? Well, err, it's like, I mean . . . . maybe.

The name is quite pretty, is it not? It’s called the Jade, and as you might know, the Chinese love the rock.

It’s no wonder then, that the Jade is one of the best selling cars in China, where its name inspires awe and desire even before customers see the car.

Based off the Stream platform, it’s designed to be 4+2 seater, something unique I think most would find. After all, 2+2s are common, but 4+2? You can now take more kids than the average hatchback would, but not have to buy a full on MPV that’s slightly cumbersome to drive. So let’s find out just what this cool piece of kit is all about....
