    Good question, I guess someone is confused about which has the double sword grill - new or old!

    Or maybe the W5 stole its sword, that seems to have more than enough What a Face

    So if that 550 is to be sold alongside the others, it's going to look like the odd one out until its facelift!

    Or are you talking about the 550?

    The number of grill swords indicates the status of the car,

    Currently the 350 is the smallest, lowest status Roewe and has one, but is changing to two.

    Maybe there is a Roewe 150 with one on the way?

    The 550 has 3.

    The new 750 for some reason also has 3 giving it the same status as a 550.

    And the W5 has 4.
