Roewe is the luxury brand of Chinese automaker SAIC Motor and it is at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show as well to introduce its new car for the E-segment, the Roewe 950. The new model is pretty different from the previous cars we have seen from this manufacturer, in terms of both aesthetics and mechanics: the 950 has been developed on GM’s Epsilon II platform, and for this reason it has a lot in common with the Buick LaCrosse.
Measuring 4,992 mm in length, 1,857 mm in width and 1,502 mm in height, the car is actually quite big and this reflects in its roomy and comfortable cabin, which comes with a dashboard that is very similar to the one of the LaCrosse. The engine range of the Roewe 950 will be initially made of three petrol units, all of which of General Motors heritage: a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder, a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder and a 3.0-litre V6 with direct injection. Prices will range from 23,000 to 38,500 Euros.
