The Roewe 750 is an executive saloon that was produced by Roewe in China between 2006-2016, 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.[2] The drivetrain is a 2.5L V6 petrol engine(184bhp), based on the Rover KV6 engine and designated NV6, 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 160 bhp (119 kW; 162 PS) was introduced. The standard 1.8T version Roewe 750 was priced at 180,000 Yuan (US$29,000 or £14,500) in January 2008.[3]

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]
