Underwheeled??

Is it just me or does the car look like it is in need of chunkier profile tyres?

Another Euro looking all the same box. With a funny name. The SsangYong buyers will love it.

Could be based on the Opel Antara

Given that SAIC say that the wheelbase is greater than 2700mm could it be that the car may be based on the Opel Antara rather than the MG GS floorpan?



According to Wikipedia the MG GS wheelbase is only 2650mm unless they managed to stretch this for the RX5?

Whatever they are using it is probably miles ahead of the old Ssangyong Kyron platform that they were using for the Roewe W5

The Roewe looks very VW to me, like a Tiguan when you look down the side from the front.

Roewe RX5 1.620 sold in 2016 July
Quote:
Also unveiled at this year’s Beijing Auto Show, the RX5 is a much-anticipated and very sleek addition to the Roewe lineup, the Chinese version of the defunct Rover marque, now owned the SAIC Group. Dubbed by the brand as “the world’s first mass-produced super internet SUV”, the RX5 is the first model equipped with the Yun OS software jointly developed with Chinese tech Alibaba, the Chinese Amazon. Roewe wants to attract a younger audience with the RX5, targetting the 26-35 year-old age bracket which has traditionally been the territory of SAIC’s other main brand, MG. The RX5 is indeed based on the same platform as the MG GS but priced higher at 97.800-177.800 yuan (US$14.750-26.800) vs. 84.700-153.700 for the MG GS.

This way, the RX5 competes with the entry-premium Chinese SUVs, such as the hugely successful GAC Trumpchi GS4 (99.800-153.800), Haval H6 Coupe (118.300-159.800), Geely Boyue (98.800-157.900), Leopaard CS10 (96.300-146.400), Qoros 5 SUV (119.900-178.900) and even the Haval H7 (145.300-165.300). On the other hand, although pricey for a Chinese SUV, the 4.54m long RX5 remains a very good deal when compared to China-made foreign offerings which demand a similar price for a distinctly smaller car such as the 4.29m Honda Vezel (118.800-175.800 yuan), 4.29m Mitsubishi ASX (93.800-150.000), 4.27m Hyundai ix25 (95.800-168.000), 4.28m Buick Encore (99.700-164.900), 4.27m Kia KX3 (85.800-159.800) or 4.17m Suzuki Vitara (99.500-158.800).

Sales-wise, the Roewe brand has recently been re-energised by the new 360 sedan that peaked at a cool 8.437 units last January, however still far from the brand’s nameplate record of 15.883 sales hit by the 350 in December 2013. But Roewe has never been able to rely on solid SUV sales, with the antique W5, a rebadged Ssangyong Kyron, never taking off since its 2011 launch. In this context, the 1.620 sales delivered by the RX5 for its inaugural month are actually a good performance already: the W5 has not signed a four-digit month since April 2014 (1.121) and only beat the RX5 July figure once: in January 2014 when 2.014 units found a new home. But the RX5 can – and should – go much higher, potentially to 5-digit monthly sales. The MG GS’s record is 6.741 back in December 2015, and a similar score hit regularly would already be a gage of success for the RX5.

Bar for success: 6.500 monthly sales

I wonder if it will come to the UK as an MG and must be a candidate for Thailand's under-utilised right-hand drive factory?

It's by far SAIC's biggest-selling own brand car in China.
This August, the five top-selling SAIC own-brand vehicles there were:
Roewe RX5 8,539 (So easily surpassing the 6,500 bar-for-success level mentioned above)
Roewe 360 5,378
Roewe 350 3,543
MG GS 2,920
MG GT 2,625
