Roewe to get own version of Buick Regal

Even in the vehicle-hungry Chinese automobile market, there are winners and losers. SAIC has seen its passenger vehicle sales fall to just under 91,000 units for the first seven months of 2011. That's a two-percent drop versus 2010, and the company is making several moves to reverse that trend. Forty-five billion Yuan will be poured into research and development over the next four years, and the sales figure are also likely to get a shot in t

Shanghai Preview: New MG6 is... nice

This is the MG6, and it's a good looking car. As the sporty version of the Roewe 550 (another good looking car), the MG6 gets a tauter nose with new lights, a slightly more upswept swage line, and a fastback rear end.

Now the Chinese automaker is finally tipped to launch its first hybrid as early as next year.

Rendered Speculation: MG TF is coming...

There's a new MG TF on its way to replace the current TF, which is once again rolling out the doors at its Longbridge, UK ancestral home.

Rendered Speculation: Roewe SUV

Roewe, SAIC's renamed Rover, has an SUV in the works. Details are scant, though it's reportedly based on a Ssangyong model. We think the Ssangyong Kyron is hiding under the Roewe's handsome sheetmetal. The Kyron carries its Mercedes-esque sty

Roewe W2 concept a Chinese delight

We've had our fun with Chinese-designed cars before, but it looks like someone over at Roewe knows what makes a decent-looking car.

Roewe developing Focus-fighter with ex-Rover employees
