Chana Taurustar is a microvan released by Chang’an Auto on November 16, 2010. It is essentially a deluxe version of the Star S460, both sitting on a 2605mm wheelbase and employs an 82kW 1.3 liter. Chang’an Auto launched for the Taurustar a distinct logo, which mirrors that of Lamborghini. The adoption of the copycat logo, ridiculed by many, was intended to highlight the microvan’s premium position, its being the flagship in the Star lineup.

In the first half of 2014, Changan Auto ditched the controversial “Taurustar” nameplate and logo, and re-named the van as “Chanan Star 7”.
