SAIC is working on a facelift for the Roewe 550. New car will get an updated front, updated back and an improved interior. Biggest news however in the gearbox department.
There will be the 5-speed manual but the old 5-speed automatic will not return. Instead there will be a brand-new 6-speed dual clutch transmission that, according to Chinese media, has been developed with GM. Engines will be the same, 1.8 with 133hp and 1.8 turbo with 160hp.
