The models of the brand owned by the SAIC concern completely redrawn the front end, there are other new things, including in terms of technology. The old SUV from the range, most likely, will not disappear.

The Roewe RX5 Max SUV launched in China in 2019, it is created on the same platform as the “just” RX5, which appeared three years earlier. The cross with the prefix is ​​larger and more expensive, and it initially had its own design, which, however, does not at all prevent the Roewe brand from considering cars as members of the same family – their sales are summed up. Last year, the older SUV was refreshed: it got a new grille, plus there was less chrome on the outside. At the same time, the pre-reform crossover did not disappear from sale, but in order not to confuse the Maxes, the restyled one was given the “surname” Supreme. And now the SUV has been updated again, only much more seriously: photos and characteristics of such a model appeared in the database of the Ministry of Industry of the PRC.

The cross received a two-tier head optics: LED strips of running lights are located on top, which are interconnected by a shiny plate with the Roewe inscription, below are the main headlight blocks (in the top version, they are also, of course, on LEDs). The radiator grill was extended in breadth, in addition, it was “dropped” to the lower edge of the new bumper. Also replaced the hood cover, rear bumper and mirror housings. The lanterns have the same shape, but the filling is different. And the RX5 Max now has retractable door handles. By the way, the two-story optics, hood, mirrors and handles are exactly the same as those of the recently declassified Roewe Jing cross-coupe, so these SUVs are relatives.
