Facelifted Roewe 550 without camouflage in China
Published on August 6, 2012 by W.E. Ning
Surprising pics of the new Roewe 550, parked in some kinda booth in what appears to be the Shanghai subway. Somebody must have made a mistake at Roewe because the facelifted 550 hasn’t officially debuted yet. The new 550 is expected to be launched on the China car market in September but it so arrived a bit too early. We don’t mind…
The facelift includes a new grille, new head lights, new tail lights and new bumpers. The grille has much more chrome than before because Chinese car buyers are still very chrome-crazy.
Current Roewe 550. Price starts at 126.800 yuan and ends at 189.800 yuan. Price for the facelifted 550 will be about the same.The facelifted 550 will also get a new 6-speed DCT gearbox that is developed in cooperation with GM. Engines will be the same as in the current 550; 1.8 with 133hp and 1.8 turbo with 160hp.
