Roewe SUV “smart car” launched with Chinese online giant Alibaba, running Alibaba’s YunOS (operating system) that connected it to other devices via the internet.

Wheelbase at a generous 2,700 mm, more than rivals such as Ford Escape (C520) and Toyota RAV4 (XA40), helping interior space. Conservative styling. Turbocharged units gave good power, mated to dual-clutch transmission. Plug-in hybrid, eRX5, used the 1·5-litre engine as support. SSA platform shared with MG GS. Two-litre deleted for 2020.
