Chinese SAIC MG 550 and MG 750 in Oman

While the Rover-derived Chinese Roewe models, rebadged as MG, are still undergoing testing in the UAE before its imminent launch, the MG 550 as well as the MG 750 are already on sale in Oman via an official dealer.

As one of our readers, Harish, pointed out, local Omani dealer Mohsin Haider Darwish LLC is offering the compact MG 550 1.8T and the midsize MG 750 2.5 V6 only, each in a single trim level, and both built in China.

The 2011 MG 550 1.8T comes with a 160 hp 1.8-litre light-pressure turbo 4-cylinder engine, 5-speed automatic, 16-inch alloys wheels, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, cruise control, stability control, two front airbags, ABS with EBD, fabric seats, one-press engine start with the key still requiring insertion, steering-mounted radio controls, power windows and mirrors, automatic climate control a/c, CD/MP3 stereo with 8 speakers, keyless entry, illuminated sunshade mirrors, digital gauges and fog lights.

The 2011 MG 750 2.5, based fully on a facelifted Rover 75, comes with a 185 hp 2.5-litre V6, 5-speed automatic, 16-inch alloy wheels, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, cruise control, dual front airbags, stability control, ABS with EBD, leather seats, power-adjustable driver’s seat, adjustable steering wheel, steering-mounted radio controls, automatic climate control a/c, CD/MP3 stereo with 8 speakers, sunroof, keyless entry, auto headlights, cooled central cubby box, illuminated sunshade mirrors and parking sensors.

Prices are reportedly higher than expected, starting above the equivalent of Dhs 60,000, though we don’t have confirmation on that. The warranty is for 3 years or 80,000 km.

What do you think?



  1. Looks in and out is good. It can easily catch up in the market if its reliable enough and interior plastics doesn’t fall off in GCC’s heat.

  2. I just saw it yday outside my house , white in color, it looks good !

  3. This car is also launched in Sudan with MG550, MG750 and MG6

  4. Even though everything is pretty much made in China these days, I don’t think people are ready to accept cars just yet, at least not at that price.

  5. This car is a lost identity.. Its made in china and has an MG badge which is anything but related to the car..

  6. I want the pection at the EMAIL


  8. Test Driven this vehicle for da past 2 days…Working in the automobile industry

    Its a shit car…total crap da chinese have made…

    No pick till u pump the accy till da floor
    interios cannot withstand the heat of the gulf
    A/c cannot cool in extreme conditions..


  9. The price of the vehicle is around 50k to 60k in uae……maybe if it was between 20k to 30k, people would think of buying it


  10. Personally I love Chinese cars because I used in Oman for many years .
    Now I am in Pakistan so I wants to bring Chinese cars here
