    As there is no forum for this maybe a mod can make one? Looks like a Ssanyong to me - well the W5 at least Shocked

    Right, let's have a look.

    EDIT It wasn't me that did this for you BTW...

    I first thought it was a good car for speed cameras - white at the back and grey at the front! Laughing

    OK, Now I am confused and at the same time convinced that there is only the W5 and no such animal as the W3!
    At the show I never actually looked at the rear-end of the silver-grey one and only the white one. On looking at my photos again and enlarging the white one it is definitely badged as a W5 and is the SsangYong Kyron chassis from the 2008 take over by SAIC.(Edit No take over as Mahindra actually bought it early this year - more confusion)
    Looking at the link that Windy posted, the other is labelled the W5 Concept! This must be the design that Roewe have been working on since early 2010.
    I was told by show staff that one was the W5 and the other the W3 but now assume they were wrong and that there is no W3 (yet)so the section title is correct with just W5.

    Sorry for the confusion on my part and please put it down to old age,too much beer or plain stupidity (be kind though) Laughing

    You may be right this time and the confusion was partly due to the MG3 and partly the exhibition hall called W3, but then again, there is a whole thread on the Roewe W3 here: http://club.autohome.com.cn/bbs/thread-c-2297-10253692-1.html, with a possible suggestion that the W3 is the MG version. The only place I have seen SAIC mention W3 I took to be a typing mistake.

    So it the confusion continues Laughing

    As the SsangYong platform uses a sourced Mercedes engine what will Roewe use I wonder?

    It has the well known 1.8T from the Roewe 550, plus the larger 3.2L Tornado XGI Straight 6 engine which appears to be Mercedes technology, not sure who actually makes it.

    ● Roewe W5, listed later this month

    W5 Roewe Shanghai Automotive will be listed later this month, will push both 1.8T and 3.2L displacements, 5 models, the estimated price at between 17-30 million, and its joint ventures directed at the city rivals SUV models.

    Ssangyong-based Roewe W5 enjoy riding, the length and breadth were 4676/1888/1765mm, wheelbase 2740mm, belongs to a large SUV. Chassis suspension, it was the double-wishbone front suspension and five-link rear suspension, in addition to the two drive types, there are four-wheel drive, all models using the P-4WD four-wheel drive system.

    Power, the use of 1.8T Kavachi turbo engine and 3.2L Tornado XGI high-performance engine, the former maximum power 118kw/5500rpm, peak torque 215Nm/2000-4500rpm; which maximum output is 162k/6000rpm and 310Nm/4600rpm. Matching is 5 speed manual, 5-speed automated manual 6-speed automated manual, and three transmissions.

    Comments: Roewe W5 is a cross-professional SUV, is different from the pursuit of mainstream urban SUV driving comfort, the Roewe W5 also has good off-road ability, its body structure HFA and P-4WD four-wheel drive system is a highlight. Roewe sale price of 17-30 million, with the Honda CR-V and Volkswagen Tiguan models such as closer.
