    Didn't one of the blogs from China Car Times or someone like that reference the car being launched with a new 1.4 Turbo (probably SGE)?

    Most reports say it will be a 1.5T which I assume is a turbo version of the 1.5 NSE found in the MG3.  

    The images we have seen before certainly look like the normal 1.5 with a turbo added: (MG5 1.5T)



    Very different to the new engine:


    The engine doesn't even seem to be in the same place!

    Seems like it is shaping up into a pretty nice car especially if they use the worlds biggest shoehorn to fit that 2.0 turbo engine in it then you will have a proper sports sedan.

    SAIC 1.4T engine with new MG5 sedan exposure



    Shanghai Automotive Class A sedan version of the car, including the Roewe 350 and a hatchback version of the MG 5 two models have been upgraded in recent facelift, the main matches are a new 1.5T turbocharged power. And the next, MG brand will launch A-class sedan type, not just fill the current MG brand at this level vacancies MG brand will bear the burden of overseas markets.



    Because by the British MG brand in the overseas market Roewe brand influence has incomparable advantages, so the current car models in Shanghai are also relying on the overseas sale of the MG brand, so the development of a main home consumption A-Class sedan, MG brand is also necessary to compensate for the vacancies in the market.



    The new sedan also used MG5 and Roewe 350 current, and the same vehicle platform MG5 are McPherson independent front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension of non-independent. The front face of the new sedan MG5 is also designed with the same strain of MG5, MG octagon LOGO flat contour extends out of the grille, headlights and sharp triangular profile of the composition of the front lines.

    Slightly different, the sedan model with a vertical bar grille off, LOGO around the grille size is larger, the whole LOGO wrapped in black grille. Besides the lower front bumper grille also used through design, on both sides of the circular front fog lamps are integrated into one area. In fact this new front face design will also be used in the subsequent mid-term facelift MG hatchback models, the current configuration of the front face of the new hatchback model is being carried out simultaneous testing.



    But from the engine cover outline view, is not shared with the hatchback design, seen MG5 sedan version of the hatchback is not a simple extension based on, but a new design from start to finish. However, the same vehicle platform, such as tire specifications and other aspects still has a lot of commonality, the same 205/55 R16 specifications, in addition to five parcels of aluminum double wheels , but also in the low distribution models on steel wheels and plastic cover with decorative applications .





    The entire body sedan models presented low to high before the streamlined shape, and the whole tail is very obvious fastback styling, rear windscreen extends almost to the end face of the trunk lid. But does not use MG6 sedan MG5 hatchback trunk lid as designed. Body waist divided into two low to high before, lumbar cord directly into the contours of the rear light clusters, taillight design group is a major highlight of the MG5 sedan models, using a one-piece design, the whole profile consistent with the contours of the headlights and front grille composed echoed around the show. The entire bar-type taillights group may use the wide LED lights, it will have a strong impact on the visual effects.



    MG5 hatchback models in interior design similarities, mainly on the part of the control panel, a significant modification. The rest, such as instrument panels, door trim panels and so shared hatchback design. As SAIC multimedia technology, MG5 sedan models will configure its iVoka intelligent multimedia interactive system on the high version.

    Roewe 350 and MG5 current just facelift 1.5T turbocharged engine, maximum power 95kw/5500rpm, peak torque 210Nm/2000-4400rpm, with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a six-speed manual gearbox. However, this new sedan MG5 will enable a new 1.4T turbocharged engine, we hypothesized that the analysis of this engine is likely to adopt direct injection technology, and will match the new 7-speed dual-clutch hand from One gearbox. This will bring new models to better fuel economy.
