The facelifted Roewe 750 debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show. It got a new front, new light clusters at the back and a completely new dashboard. The new car will be listed on the Chinese market in June. Engines: 1.8 turbo and 2.5 V6. Price will start around 150.000 yuan and end around 250.000 yuan.
The all new Roewe 750 is still at least a year away. Roewe brings a facelifted 750 to the Shanghai Auto Show to keep sales up a bit until the replacement arrives. The facelifted car was expected a year ago at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show but didn’t make it there. Now it is ready and the biggest changes are up front and in the interior.

The current Roewe 750 is based on the ancient Rover 75. The new 750 will be based on the made-in-China Buick Lacrosse. Earlier we saw renderings from the new 750 that looked like a Lacrosse with different badged. According to these very first spy pics Roewe does try a little bit harder to make their new top car look special.
Earlier we heard the new Roewe 750 would be based on the Buick Regal from SAIC-GM. New info learns that Roewe might use GM’s Epsilon-II platform on which the Regal is based. But the bigger Buick LaCrosse is also based on Epsilon-II and it seems that Roewe wants that one. At least, according to these renderings that turned up on the internet.
Last month we heard that the next generation Roewe 750 will be based on the made-in-China Buick Regal (Opel Insignia). Today we have the first sketch of the new car which will debut sometime in 2011. It loox a lot like a sportback, very trendy indeed. More news as we get it.
The Roewe 750 Hybrid has been around since the 2006 Beijing Auto Show, now in 2010 it loox like Roewe will finally launch it. The ‘D’ is the name does not refer to ‘diesel’ but to a trim-level, other levels being S, E, and EX. The hybrid will get a BSG (Belt driver Starter Generator) system from UK’s Ricardo and batteries from US’ Johnson Controls.
The next generation Roewe 750 will be based on the platform of the China-made Buick Regal. The Ragal is made by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) is also the owner of the Roewe and MG brands. This means that the next generation MG7 will very likely be based on the Regal-platform as well.
The Regal is basically a rebadged Opel Insigina, the Roewe 750 a rebadged Rover 750. The deal makes most sense for SAIC. Not much for GM because it only helps the competition getting better. The new 750 will debut late 2011.
The facelifted SAIC-Roewe 750 was expected at the Beijing Auto Show but did not appear. Roewe took another four months to work on it but today it stil didn’t hit la market yet. It though seems almost time now bacause for the first time we got the new car in all its naked glory.
The facelifted SAIC-Roewe 750 was expected at the Beijing Auto Show but didn’t make it. Earlier on we saw spy shots of an almost naked new 750, now we have a camouflaged car but better pictures. Changes are small, it will get new lightclusters, bit different bumpers and an updated interior.
