The Roewe 750 is a car produced by Roewe in the People's Republic of China, based on the Rover 75.

Overview[edit]

Launched in October 2006 and codenamed SAC528 during development, the wheelbase of the Roewe 750 is stretched by 103 mm (4.1 in) compared to the Rover 75.[1] The drivetrain is a 2.5L V6 petrol engine, based on the Rover KV6 engine and the gearbox is a brand new 5-speed automatic. The company claims that 85% of the car is improved. Later, a 1.8T (turbo) petrol engine based on the Rover K-series engine, delivering around 150 bhp (112 kW; 152 PS) was introduced. The standard 1.8T version Roewe 750 was priced at 210,000 Yuan (US$29,000 or £14,500) in January 2008.[2]

The upper-end 750i adds GPS and television/DVD as standard features. Prices range from 181,800 Yuan for a L4 to 268,800 Yuan for a loaded 750i.[citation needed]

SAIC Roewe claim acceleration from still to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.5 seconds for the 1.8T Manual, 11.5 seconds for the 1.8T automatic and 10.2 seconds for the V6 automatic, fuel efficiency of 6.0 and 6.4L/100 km respectively, and top speeds of 205 km/h (127 mph) for the four and 220 km/h (137 mph) for the V6.[3][4]
