The Beijing Motor Show is right around the corner and the wraps are starting to come off models schedule to debut at the show. The latest preview is of the Roewe 550 sedan, a rather impressive design from a Chinese automaker.

The 550's exterior is a sleek design with a high beltline. Its lines are taut and its wheels fit snuggly in the car's wheel wells. The front end styling has a hint of Volkswagen in it, but for the most part, the Roewe 550 has a design theme all its own.

On the inside, the 550 continues to impress. Its gauge cluster is a very unique setup, with a center-mounted analog tachometer housed under a wide hood. Continuing the luxury theme is a center-mounted LCD navigation screen just above the center stack.

Interior materials and fit and finish appear to be top notch, especially for a Chinese built vehicle.

Not much else is known about the Roewe 550, but more should be revealed after the car's official unveiling in just a few days.
