Surely CCT readers will understand by now, that the Roewe 550 is one of China Car Times favorite new cars of late. We hear critisisms of the 550 such as ‘the chrome front is ugly‘, the ‘rear end is ugly‘ what a bunch of moaners! The 550 is expected to launch at the Beijing Auto Show making it just over a year since the Roewe 750 2.5 V6 was launched, the Roewe 750 1.8T is also expected to be launched at this years Beijing Auto Show.
Due to our distinct like of the Roewe 550, we dont really need any excuse to post any pictures of it! The Roewe 550 was spotted out filming a TV commercial, and a passerby happened to take a few photos!
The Roewe 550 has a 1.8 turbo assisted engine under the hood (the same as the much larger MG7/Roewe 750 1.8T) and is expected to come in at the same price as a mid range Ford Focus (120 – 160k rmb) Would we have one? Probably, probably even more if it were to receive the MG sports treatment.
