Roewe 750. 2006–16 (prod. n/a). F/F, 1794 cm³ petrol, 1794 cm³ petrol–electric hybrid (I4 DOHC), 2497 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Rebodied Rover 75. SAIC acquired the rights to the model in 2005 and proceeded to make its own version of the 75’s platform, lengthened by 100 mm. British consultants Ricardo2010 did restyle and update. However, SAIC was forced to create a new marque, Roewe, after Ford bought the Rover brand; Roewe logo has the same shape as old Rover Viking longship one. Two noses: small grille for lower-spec; large grille (à la last Rover 75 V8) for higher-spec. Not as well built as old 75 according to early reports, with less safety equipment than western markets expect. Minor facelift for 2011; mild hybrid from 2011.
