Despite the brand’s bet on crossovers and SUVs, MG now has 2 passenger cars in its lineup.

In China, the presentation of the new crossover MG 5 took place. Recall that earlier this brand was British, and now belongs to the SAIC concern. The new car was the first to be made in a new style for the brand. At the front, the radiator grille displaced downwards and the bonnet with a low leading edge are striking. The shape of the headlights complements the aggressive appearance.

Correctly speaking, the MG 5 is not made in the body of a classic sedan, but in a fastback, as it has a sloping roof. The dimensions of the car are 4675x1842x1420 mm with a wheelbase of 2 680 mm. The interior of the novelty turned out to be bright and rather unusual – we note the multimedia system turned towards the driver, as well as contrasting colors in the interior and a virtual instrument panel.

The MG 5 engine range will consist of two power plants – the base will be a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine with 120 hp, and a more powerful turbo engine will be able to produce 172 hp.

In combination with the first, a variator works, and the second relies on a robotic gearbox.
Car sales in China should begin in November this year. It is noteworthy that the MG 5 EV is already on sale in the British market, but there it has a fully electric motor and even a different emblem.

Previously, the web showed renders of the new coupe-like crossover Haval H6x, which should hit the market soon enough. The design of the car turned out to be quite interesting – the shape of the tailgate differs significantly from the classic coupe-crossovers.
