Roewe 550 to be sold in June at 130,000-180,000 yuan.

Quote:
At this Beijing auto show, SAIC launched the all-new compact sedan Roewe550 as its global premiere and will deliver it to the market in June this year.

Gao Weiming, general manager of the technical center of SAIC, said Roewe 550 will be the most intelligent car of Chinese-made mid-class sedans and thus is called the "D5 all-time digital sedan." Sources from SAIC said the model is expected to be sold in June at prices between 130,000 yuan ($18,570) and 180,000 yuan.

As a "D5 all-time digital sedan," Roewe550 demonstrates its digital intelligence through its driving management, information display and entertainment aspect. The integrated in-car entertainment system will offer the RMI (Roewe Multimedia Interface) digital multimedia interactive system, which combines integrated information delivery systems, GPS and information functions. The Dual-Bus digital intelligence driving management enhances the reliability of vehicle information transmission and lowers the failure rate of electric system. Moreover, the Syn-Tech upgrade module provides varies of individual module choices.

In the safety aspect, equipped with USD vehicle body and Slip control system (SCS)—ABS+EBD+CBC+MSR+TCS+VSC, Roewe550 meets the five-star-level crash requirements not only of China New Car Assessment Programme(CNCAP) but also of the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP).It is also equipped with racing-level four-wheel independent suspension system and powered by a Kavachi1.8T high performance all-aluminum cold turbocharging engine which generates an output at 118kw and consumes only 6L in 100km. The emissions meet European IV standard.

According to Gao Weiming, the hatchback Roewe550 has been designed besides the going-on-sale notchback Roewe 550. He also said that a 1.8L engine is offered for choice besides the 1.8T engine of Roewe 550.

The Roewe 550 will be officially launched for the market at a SAIC show in June 2008 according to our sources. The 550 was shown to the world at the recent Beijing Auto Show and gained wide attention from both domestic and foreign visitors to the show, many acclaimed the Roewe 550 as the finest Chinese made vehicle to date, and who are China Car Times to argue with that?

The Roewe 550 is an ‘intelligent sedan‘ according to SAIC, this comes in form of the D5 digital dashboard which is also known as a driving management system. What this exactly does, is still a bit of a mystery to China Car Times. Obviously its based on the infamous talking Maestro, a distant cousin of the modern day Roewe 550. The D5 digital dash offers the RMI (Roewe Multimedia Interface) which is a DVD screen, GPS navigation, an ‘information delivery system‘ The autobox transmission is also hooked up to the D5 system, which apparently lowers the risk of electrical failure.

Cool stuff aside, the Roewe 550 does have a safe and boring side (although, there is nothing wrong with that) The 550 does come jam packed with every safety acronym they could think of: Slip control system (SCS) ABS, EBD, CBC, MSR, TCS, VSC. The 550 is also built to European NCAP 5 star crash test safety standards, as well as the Chinese CNCAP 5 star safety standards. The 1.8T engine, a modified K-Series engine (hint, no blowing head gaskets) has been upgraded to Euro 5 emissions standards, and is very fuel efficient with it needing only 6l of fuel for 100km of travel.

And in other Roewe 550 news: SAIC are busy working on a hatchback version of the Roewe 550, and possibly an SUV. Who said they didnt get their monies worth out of the Rover-MG fire sale?

Default Roewe 550 Sports

Roewe 550 Sports.

Article at China Car Times:

China Car Times once said the Roewe 550 was the most beautiful Chinese car to date, however, since these photos came to light of a ’sports’ 550, we retract our statement. The 550 Sports is not an improvement on exterior aesthetics at all!
The black one on the left is the sports version, and the right one is the original version.

IMO the black one looks way better than the silver one.

Nice midsize sedan there. I would love to read a Motor Trend magazine comparo between this sedan and the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Mercury Milan, Kia Optima, etc. This car's body design trumps some of the midsize sedans available in America right now. If I were SAIC I'd look in to making this car available for sale in the United States.
