Spy Shots showing a brand new variant of the good old Roewe W5 SUV. This is a typical Chinese open police patrol car. Vehicles like this are used within big cities for regular police patrols, especially in city centers and around important locations. And an open police petrol can also be used as a parade car.

The facelifted Roewe 950 sedan has been unveiled on the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show. The 950 is the slow-selling flagship of the Roewe-brand owned by Shanghai Auto. The 950 is based on the Buick Lacrosse that is made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. The facelift includes new headlights with LED strips, some smaller changes at the rear, and a new 2.0 turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.
The Roewe W5 Urban Concept debuted on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show. The Urban Concept previews the upcoming facelift for the Roewe W5 SUV, and design elements of the concept will also be applied on other future Roewe cars. The facelifted Roewe W5 will hit the China car market late this year.
Roewe has released the first teasers of a new concept SUV that will debut on Sunday on the Beijing Auto Show. The concept previews the facelifted Roewe W5 which will be launched on the China car market in the second half of this year. Some design elements of the concept will also be applied on other future Roewe cars.
The engines will be used in current and future Roewe and MG cars, and will also be used in future China-made Buicks and Chevrolets. The agreement is basically a license deal for SAIC to use GM’s new family of ‘Modular Ecotec Engines’ in various MG and Roewe branded cars.
New rumors in the Chinese automotive press saying the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) wants to revive the once famous ‘Shanghai‘ brand. Media say that the first car to be Shanghaied is the slow-selling Roewe 950. To prove the facts the story comes with photos showing a Roewe 950 with Shanghai badges.
There is however a small problem with these photos: they are exactly two years old. They first appeared on the Chinese interwebs on January 6 2012, fueling similar rumors about the resurrection of the Shanghai brand, but that never happened. In November 2012 we saw spy shots of a Roewe 750 with Shanghai badges, again with rumors about the Shanghai brand, but again nothing happened.
It is very well possible that SAIC is still considering reviving the brand. Rumors usually come from somewhere, but sure it is certainly not! We will keep an eye on new developments…

Roewe has applied for patent on a facelift for the Roewe W5 SUV. The facelifted Roewe W5 is expected to debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show in late November. The facelift includes a new heavily chromed grille with a huge Roewe logo in the middle, and a slightly revised front bumper.
