Roewe is going to launch a new seven-seat SUV in China. The new car finally replaces the aging Roewe W5, pictured above. It will be called the Roewe RX8 and it will be launched on the Chinese car market late this year. The RX8 will compete with cars such as the Trumpchi GS8 and Haval H7L. Power will come from a new variant of the Roewe 2.0 turbo.
Last year we had spy shots of a new Roewe W5 Open Police Patrol Car, based on the Roewe W5 SUV. Happily, it is in production now, and they are selling to police corps all over the country. Above the new fleet for police in the city of Fuzhou in Fujian Province.
The facelifted MG GS SUV has been launched on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 98.800 yuan and ends at 168.800 yuan. The facelift is rather extensive and includes a new grille, new lights, new bumpers, and an updated interior. Strangely, MG didn’t bother to change the alloys, look:
The Roewe i6 has been launched on the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, and it has become one of the best looking Chinese sedans ever. It comes in two flavors: the i6 petrol version and the ei6 hybrid.

And here we have the first photos of the new Roewe i6, set to debut on Friday on the Guangzhou Auto Show in China. The Roewe i6 is the successor of the Roewe 550, and formerly known as the Roewe 550L. There will be two variants: a petrol powered i6 and a plug-in hybrid ei6.
The Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) has officially announced that it has ended production of the Roewe 750, and that means the Rover 75 is finally dead. The 75 was manufactured from 1998 until 2005 when the MG Rover Group went bankrupt. SAIC bought the rights to the 75, but they didn’t get the Rover name and therefore had to create the Roewe brand.
This is the new Roewe 550L for China. It will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and launch on the Chinese car market in early 2017. It is a fine looking car with a wide grille flanked by LED lights and shiny bits in the bumper. Wheels however seem a tad too small.
Alibaba and SAIC have jointly launched an ‘Internet Car’ in China, Alibaba says. The term internet car refers to the Internet of Things (IoT) where everything is connected; your smartphone with your car, your car with your home, and your home with your phone.
Alibaba has nothing to do with the actual car. It was designed and developed by the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). It is marketed under SAIC’s Roewe brand and sold via Roewe’s existing dealer network.
Roewe has released the first photos of their new Roewe RX5 SUV, looking fresh and somewhat dignified. The Roewe RX5, not to be confused with the new Fengshen AX5, will debut on Monday on the Beijing Auto Show and launch on the Chinese car market in the second half of the year.
The spectacular Roewe Vision-R Concept was unveiled today on the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, looking sleek and sporty and swooping, and she is is very pretty too. Roewe says the Vision-R previews the future design direction of the brand, and we add that this is essentially the next generation Roewe 950, which will be based on the 2017 Buick LaCrosse.
