    That looks really smart.

    I wish they would release Roewe as the less sporting brand/cheaper brand to MG across Europe.

    Equipped with dual-clutch, Inkanet voice control and Fixed cup holders,
    The New Roewe 550 will be unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show


    At the Auto Shanghai, Roewe will exhibit the new Roewe 550, the new Roewe 550 continuation of existing acclaimed design, body lines are still simple and smooth atmosphere, Smart and young atmosphere, in contrast. Car the biggest changes is equipped with a dual-clutch transmission.

    Compared to the old, the front face of the new Roewe 550 is more cutting-edge, high waist on both sides of the body has been extended to the front bumper lower grille and new U-shaped line to greet on, however, seem vitality and confidence, while the side air intake to further strengthen the layering on the body on the basis of maintaining the original pattern. However, black front grille is some alternative, and I believe that the production car will still put people more favorite chrome grille.

    The headlight shape is the most obvious change of the front face of the new Roewe 550 headlights at the lower edge sharpening processing, Breton intervals lengthen, further sharpening too mellow original form, it is more aggressive.

    And kind of new Roewe 550 is also reflected in the door hinges on a lot of the same level models canceled because of cost considerations and the three-door hinge, the new Roewe 550 is still using a three-stage hinge. This hinge not only more durable, but also to open more texture behind closed doors.

    Roewe 550 of the old section of the interior has been is a classic in its own brand, the overall style of the new Roewe 550 interior is not as much change, but significantly improve the detail texture detail design, SAIC did spend a lot of thought. The new 550 interiors abandon the original shape too linear characteristics, the use of more curves and gentle way, feeling more smooth and natural, and the high cost of the matte plating also greatly enhance the visual pleasure. Console elevation than the old operator interface closer to the driver and passengers, handling feel more comfortable.

    The center console button to display the new Roewe 550 is equipped with the inkaNet systems display larger than the classic, screen colors more rich soft. Board trip computer can access various driving reference information (average speed, instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, mileage, mileage), can also be personalized feature set (with my home, speed limit warning, smart wiper car search instructions, automatic latch).

    The multifunction steering wheel with integrated many buttons in addition to the common multimedia control, cruise control, there control inkaNet voice input button.

    New Roewe 550 digital dashboard changed little, but more delicate, careful observation can be found speed pointer 550 words.

    The center console regional integrated changes in the core of the new Roewe 550. It is understood that the new Roewe 550 has been upgraded to a six-speed wet dual-clutch gearbox, the comfort flexibility with manual transmission and automatic transmission, but also provide uninterrupted power output, the structure of the wet gearbox reliable , offers a guarantee. You can see, this gearbox is not only to provide a manual mode, but also special snow mode. Transmission seat rear middle button to display the new Roewe 550 at the same level has been the first to configure the electronic handbrake, which not only increases the ease of operation, more tidy in the control area, and also provide a fixed cupholders.

    Bias comfortable leather seats styling direction, electrically adjustable button styling is quite distinctive. The car is also equipped with iso-fix child seat interface, more suitable for home use.

    Yes, sort of makes the current one look like a first attempt Laughing

    You never know, maybe Europe will get it as the MG550 as many other countries do, including some European ones although not currently EU ones.

    It's got longer and taller!




    It is understood that the new Roewe 550 appearance adjustment to body size, length increased 24mm, In addition, the transmission part of a six-speed DCT dual-clutch transmission will also facelift.

    Aspects of body size, compared to current (4624/1827/1480mm), facelift Roewe 550 (measurements were 4648/1827/1483mm) increase in length of 24mm, height 3 mm, but the wheelbase still keep in 2705mm. Inside, the new Roewe 550 also has changed little, in addition to new electronic parking brake and fine-tune the shape of the dashboard and center console button, the rest is basically consistent with the current.

    Current 550 is equipped with 1.8L two 1.8T engine, maximum power of 98kW (133PS) to 118kW (161PS), the new two engines will continue to be used, but the driving part, remain 5MT transmission, the original 5AT will facelift said the 6-speed DCT dual-clutch transmission; addition, the new car will also be introduced since the engine stop start technology has been further control fuel consumption.
