I agree....a very Hyundai hint to the appearance....
I'm seeing a lot of 2012 Azera up front
Some of you are under this ridiculous Foxnewsesque belief that all Chinese companies just steal stuff left and right. Yes, many Chinese companies steal technology, but NOT those engaged in joint-ventures with foreign manufacturers. Would YOU remain business partners with someone who stole from you? Hell no. And neither would any carmaker. SAIC didn't just go and rip off the GM platform and make its own car. It paid GM for the privilege of using the LaCrosse platform and buys the powertrains from GM. So GM gets a cut off of every 950 that Roewe will sell. It's no different than GM paying Suzuki for the rights to build and sell all those Geo's in the 1990s.
And lest we forget, GM was losing its ASS around 2008, when the LaCrosse was under development. If my sources are correct, GM didn't have the money to continue LaCrosse deelopment, so SAIC picked up the tab and in return, GM gave SAIC a "share", if you will, in the LaCrosse's design, which SAIC used to create the 950.
I hope that made things a little more clear.
A sub brand of sorts for Buick in China - not named Chevrolet..... gotta' love it and give great thanks for both parts of that.
Kinda' a better 'new' Impala....... for them.
Chinese Government will appreciate all the above.
Looks like a good move +........ with additional great potential for later.
Now all we need is GM to get Chebbie all lined up with Wuling and then ..... nothing but silk.
