China's Roewe calls on GM for platform and parts, revealing a new 950 flagship in Beijing.

The Roewe mid-sizer is closely related to Buick’s successful LaCrosse sedan, but uses all-unique bodywork and interior.

Based on GM’s Epsilon II architecture, the 950 will also be available with a range of GM-supplied engines including 2 and 2.4 litre fours, and a GM's 190kW 3.0 litre V6.

The 950 is the first obvious fruit to be borne of Roewe’s parent company SAIC’s joint venture with General Motors.

This relationship signifies an official sharing of designs, which is ironic for a market notorious for copycat models.

The Roewe brand was formed by SAIC using the remnants of Rover after its collapse in 2005.

Roewe has since produced a range of models mostly based on previous Rover designs, with the exception of the SsangYong Kyron-based W5 SUV model.

Australia will see its first mainstream Epsilon II-based models in the form of the upcoming Holden Malibu, and the local launch of the Opel Insignia.
