Not bad. The rill is very Chinese looking though and will need to go if it's being marketed as 'British'. The exterior will appeal in China but may struggle in the UK as we tend to prefer Hatchbacks to saloons. It's also difficult to figure out wo it will be competing with? In the Premium sector people want recognised brands, Lexus has really struggled here for example. In the sector below everyone buy's hatches......hmmm

Love the interior but will it make production? Looks like it's been designed in the West overall. Which is a good thing.

That looks quite good, front end seems a bit fussy.
The overall proportions (and the rear door & C-pillar) makes me think of the Lexus IS350.

:lol: you have done no beter than me at trying to make the auto translated language easy to read! It seems it's not possible to do.

The CGI pictures look a bit messy to me, I'm looking forward to seeing the real thing at the show, I expect it will look rather better, maybe with the paint on the hood matching that on the bumper.

Don't know where they are going to put the number plate? Unless its a V shaped one...

Thanks for the detailed pictures - I've used them on my news thread on the mg-rover forum :)

Hmm, the front end is kind of stange (but attractive looking), It doesn't look very British nor very Roewe so I think we'll see that go. Interior is nice too, but don't expect anything that fancy or high-tech, this is a Chinese car afterall. I wonder if we'll see it at Shanghai(hopefully).:cool:
It's good to see the discussion is coming back again, can't
wait for the Shanghai motor show.
