The Eastar is a mid-size sedan manufactured by Chery Auto. A clone of Daewoo Magnus, it was first released on June 3, 2003. In June 2007, Chery launched a wagon version of the sedan, called Eastar Cross. Due to low demand, production of the 7-seater variant was ended in 2009.

As Chery’s flagship model, the Eastar has performed poorly in the market. Over the years, Chery has cut the price for the top version from over 200,000 Yuan to 135,800 Yuan, and kept upgrading the powertrain and styling. But none of the efforts has succeeded in lifting sales. In the first ten months of 2013, only 498 deliveries were made.

Chery started to export the Eastar in 2006, shipping over 2,000 units to overseas markets in that year.
