This paper reviews the general preferences of Chinese car consumers. Using an upper-medium car pre-launch as a case study, this paper examines upper-medium car segment consumers' local tastes, helping car manufacturers to make informed judgments about local preferences and price elasticity, and forecasts what the likely acceptance of a car would be if brought to the Chinese market. The results aim to improve car manufacturers' competitive positioning in local markets and positively influence their market share standings.
