    It's the Roewe 250 that some believe to be a rebadged Punto, not the 350 Wink

    This has a lot of legroom in the back compared to the ZS that it may be based on...

    The interior looks good in those photos, except for the fake wood. The big slab of brown plastic (wood) around the transmission selector looks really bad to me.

    So this explains why when you google for MG6 you get fridges! They're pretty cold too!

    This article from the Sunday Times says this could be very dangerous, that Ford and Audi are introducing it and:

    Enabling vehicles to be connected to the internet is rapidly becoming the
    hottest area of research for car makers. It has also caught the attention of
    Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One supremo. His interest in Saab, the
    struggling Swedish car maker that looks set to be closed down by its owner,
    General Motors, appears to be driven in part by its suitability as a
    test-bed for the new technology.

    so are there two sorts of grey?

    The Roewe 350 out and about:














    1.5L model will feature a five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmission


    Depending on configuration, high model has five-spoke aluminum alloy wheels




    After many spy shots of camouflaged Roewe 350s, today we have for the first time one with no camouflage. In addition to real vehicle pictures, as well as the different configurations of the test vehicle spy photos. In order to help you learn more about this displacement of 1.5L, the official listing of the Department of transport are exposed the CSA7150MC and CSA7150AC product codes, the estimated price in 10,000 range.

    Compared with the earliest version of the spy photos, the final production version of the Roewe 350 of the radiator grille design has changed, with the Roewe 550 is not similar to the previous design, but will be reduced to one grid bar, but the gull-wing shape still has 550 elements, while the shield-type LOGO from the front side on the bonnet has moved into the grill area. The use of a chrome grille also to highlight the atmosphere.

    Type along the headlights on the brow of the frosted area, such as lights front and side of the hood sleek lines link up, but the headlights and the Roewe 350 is not configured lens, you can also see that this model will further reduce costs in order to achieve high cost-effectiveness. Body side of the waistline distinct tradition of adhering to the 550 models, side turn signal is still designed in the traditional fender area. Depending on configuration, the high distribution models will be used five spoke aluminum alloy wheels and low models will be equipped with steel wheels with eight spokes supplemented by imitation plastic decorative covers.

    The Roewe 350's tail was designed with only one side of the reversing lights, tail logo represents the 350D. Roewe cars in right middle and high with the habit of naming cars, but the identity is proved 1.5VTI The first 350 vehicles will be listed with the current configuration 15S4U naturally aspirated engine. In addition, there may be high with models equipped with rear camera, in order to achieve reversing visibility.

    From the interior part of the look manual and automatic models to configure the level of a current, low-distribution model using the ordinary CD audio, steering wheel does not operate buttons, fabric fabric seat; and high vehicles will be configured with DVD multimedia navigation system, multi - function steering wheel, leather seat fabric. Moreover, according to the different models, interior trim panels have silver metal and red-brown imitation "Fang Taomu" decoration to choose from.

    The Roewe 350 dash still reflects the Roewe models have been full-time flagship digital concept dashboards Analog tachometer on the left side is the right of the LCD screen is huge integrated road and the figures show that the speed table functionality. Audio system, DVD player out of the traditional, but also features an integrated phone, Bluetooth functionality and navigation features.

    With the 1.5L naturally aspirated engine, it will be a five-speed manual gearbox and four-speed automatic transmission, which will be the recent upcoming Roewe 350 model power system configuration. As before the rumors of a new 1.5T turbocharged engine, as well as the seven-speed DCT dual-clutch transmission does not does not appear possible for the launch timescale.

    The internal version of the Roewe 350 sedan, code-named AP11, in the SAIC Roewe A platform is also planning a series of products, followed by launch will be the hatchback version of the AP12 models. The follow-up there is the Tourer version code-named AP13 and the AP14 cross SUV version and a series of planned models.

    The IS12 Roewe SUV based on the Ssangyong Kyron model is also expected to launch this year.

    New pictures:


    Roewe 350 & Roewe 550











    More real photographs of the Roewe 350. Completely receded camouflage, we can more clearly see the details of the Roewe 350 and the specific configuration, however the engine is still a mysterious parameter. At the same time we have exposure of two new models. the 350D and 350C with the level of configuration details.

    While the 350 shares the radiator grille and chiseled waistline and some other characteristics of the Big Brother Roewe 550 model, with its location as an A0-class model the 350 will assume more of the popular vehicles location to enhance sales. However, the first face 350 to be a lot of moderate, compared to 550 cars with their highly aggressive campaign style, the 350 through the lack of sufficient personality, will be able to win wider recognition of the crowd. Meanwhile, the the selling price of the Roewe 350 will be more close to the people through a number of more practical configurations of the specification to be realized.

    The ordinary reflector headlight does not use a lens light group, there will be no xenon light source and LED elements appearing. However, we noted that it is using boneless wiper blade design, and design of front and rear disc brakes with 205/55R16 tires in conjunction with 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, the lower model with steel wheels and plastic decorative cover configuration.

    Roewe 350 taillight while in the details can still see some lines similar to 550, but the overall style has undergone significant changes, compared with 550 full of convex rounded shape, 350 models is more chiseled, in the boot cover the edge of the hem to create a more prominent form. At the right rear the chrome font 350D and 350C can distinguish high and low configurations different models. In addition, there is one detail can be distinguished 350D model is a license frame chrome trim strip above the bottom of the LOGO will be integrated with a reversing camera, while the 350C version, only with three probes reversing radar configuration.

    For location and price control model to consider Roewe 350 will not appear electrically adjustable front seats and other luxury configurations. Of course, they will hot have the independent rear air-conditioning vents, but there will still be the twin folding cup holder armrests. Rear room, while not luxurious, but compared to other models for the same level, it is still remarkable.

    In the engine configuration, not the previous rumors of the 1.5T turbo engine yet, and not follow MG MG3SW with the 1.4L engine, but a brand new 1.5L VTi engine. This type of four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine 15S4U with peak power reached a 78kw (106 hp).

    350C and 350D models through the interior details of the comparison we can clearly distinguish differences in the level of the configuration of different models. 350D will be configured with multi-function steering wheel, MP3-format DVD with GPS navigation capabilities, but also can achieve visual reversing function, air-conditioning is also equipped with automatic temperature control. While the 350C models are just ordinary silver trim steering wheel, and CD audio head, of course, can also support MP3 and WMA formats, in addition to in front of the gear stick will be inside the storage interface and USB interface, audio input, air-conditioning with manual control knob.

    Roewe 350 from the instrument panel, or the number reflects the Roewe brand been promoting the concept of full-time numbers, in addition to the pointer speed table also retained the situation, the other all have been digitized, the speed of the table also appear in the huge numbers of traffic situation, the computer screen on. Steering wheel to the left is a fog lamp button on the lower part of the design of a more convenient card slots and storage grid can be stored for daily use access cards. And then at the bottom is the fuel tank cover and engine cover to open pull switch.

    Boot to open the door through the driver's seat position of the round push-button electronic control, central location and the doors on both sides of a total of handbrake has designed as many as four water-cup holders. Roewe 350 model in addition to configure 1.5L naturally aspirated engine, the transmission should be temporarily does not appear in CVT versions, but the five-speed manual version and the four-speed automatic transmission version. DSG will appear in later models.

    I noticed a thread on the MG-Rover forum:

    Roewe 350 roll out on 17th March, launched on Beijing auto show.



    While it is true that the Roewe 350 will be launched at the Beijing Auto Show 2010, the date of this show is 25th April to May 2nd with the press day on April 23rd.

    The shows website: http://www.china-autoshow.com/2010beijing/index_e.asp

    There will be no roll out on 17th March, however there will be a press day to disclose both NAC and SAIC "2010 developments plans", there will also be some real information on the Roewe 350 - we have only had leaks so far.

    Current information is that at launch there will be a NASP 1.5L version with both 5 speed manual and 4 speed (low cost) automatic. A 1.5L turbo DSG Automatic will follow later in the year.

    SAIC says it will build a version of the Roewe 350, pictured, in Longbridge, England.

    SHANGHAI -- Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. plans to build and sell a right-hand drive version of its newly unveiled Roewe 350 hatchback in England, said Chen Zhixing, executive vice president of SAIC.

    Chen, who is also head of SAIC's own brand vehicles, made the remarks at the ceremony held last week in the east China city of Nanjing marking the new car's roll-off from the production line.

    The new car, which rolled off the production line at SAIC's Pukou plant in Nanjing, has a wheelbase of 2,650mm. It is 4,520mm long, 1,780mm wide and 1,500 high. It carries a 1.5-liter gasoline engine and a five-speed automated mechanical transmission.

    Pricing information of the Roewe 350 remains unknown. Chen didn't provide a timeframe for the car's production in England.

    At present, SAIC has a plant as well as an r&d team in Longbridge in England.

    SAIC sold some 90,000 units of its own brand cars in China in 2009, including both the Roewe- and MG-branded models. The company, a General Motors Co. and Volkswagen AG partner in China, expects to double the sales of its own brand cars this year.

    In January, SAIC said it plans to sell UK-made MG cars in Europe at the end of the year. Assembly of MG-series models, including the MG 6, would begin at its Longbridge plant in England late this year, SAIC Chairman Hu Maoyuan told Reuters on the sidelines of Shanghai's annual People's Political Consultative Conference.

    Hu said MG models would not only be sold in Britain but also in other European countries through the existing MG sales network.

    SAIC became the owner of MG Rover's 10,000-unit Longbridge plant in Birmingham, central England in 2007, after a merger with its much smaller peer, Nanjing Automobile Group. Nanjing had aquired MG Rover in 2005 after Britain's last remaining domestic volume carmaker collapsed through financial difficulties.

    SAIC launched its first self-developed car, the Roewe 750, based on technologies acquired from MG Rover, in March of that year, followed by the Roewe 550 and MG 6 models, popular with young, elite professionals in China.

    One option for SAIC is to make complete knocked down (CKD) kits for the models in China and have them assembled in the UK-plant, Hu said in January.

    A Euro version would have to have either a proper belt or no belt at all these days to meet regulations. I imagine they have taken that into account when designing it and there is a mounting point for a middle belt even if its not used in the Chinese version.

    Hu said MG models would not only be sold in Britain but also in other
    European countries through the existing MG sales network.
    but the existing non-UK European MG sales network means K&C Garages, Dublin, and Avtostil, Minsk!

    presumably the xpart centres will form the core of a new network...

    I suspect there are a few others that are signed up but not yet open for business as MG dealers, we know for example that something has been organised in Spain/Portugal.
