But to the best of my knowledge roewe has been around for a while,
Car looks excellent IMO,

the front end looks like a VW ripoff and the interior looks like a E90 3 series rip off. With all the money the chinese cars companies are saving on R&D, I am sure when they make it to NA, they will price them below KIA, Hyundai, etc. Remember this is how the Korean car companies started.......

Just bunch of folks that bought out the bankrupt rover and used their existing technology, repackaged it a bit and sell it.

it drives like a rover handles like a rover and it'll break down like a rover.

korean took 20+ years to build decent vehicles...you can see 4 different stages...late 80s, pre-95, pre2000, 2000+

now let's see the chinese market...
here is the first stage (few years ago, it's all about copying)


it is going to the second stage (horrible design, but you can see some attempts and improvements)


I am guessing few years later, like 2010-2015...Chinese automakers will come up with something like the Hyundai Pony or Scoupe that will compete with others in the market, oh yeah, they will catch eventually.
