    SAIC A0-level car "naming" MG MG3 exclusive exposure

    The new SAIC A0-class car is finally named MG MG3.

    Sina Auto News from the Fiat Punto PUNTO to the Roewe 150, from the Roewe 150 and then to MG2 an MG ZERO, thanks to SAIC rather "messy" and order the gift of naming cars, even though many automobile industry do so, can be dangerous Touyunnaozhang we do not know why, let alone the ordinary people. In fact, our request is simple: is this the latest MG car class A0, can you tell us a truth, which name in the end is? !


    SAIC A0-class car finally naming MG MG3
    We got it the first time the non-disguised spy photos, and processing directory, now you can responsibly tell you what is not called 150, not what MG2, cars were called MG3, then!

    A map with the truth of! That paragraph was not familiar with the failure of MG7 also okay, if you look very attractive on that section of the eyeball MG6 slightly some impressions of it, can identify a black car in front of this lineage, because from the front part to its front face and MG6 was almost the same, we will not elaborate further on this, interested in what a friend can be compared.


    SAIC A0-class car finally naming MG MG3
    Exposure of their identity is the most crucial tail, the big red "3", as if all the people to overthrow the previous speculation and imagination, until the media called MG2 statement also proved unfounded, and SAIC this car models from the "2" upgrade to "3", so of course, to the car after leaving a smaller foot level of the room.

    Given the possibility of many people also understand that this car is not out, we feel the need in this life experience to talk about it clearly. SAIC before the acquisition of Nanjing Automobile has started the development of models A0-level work is of course the usual, that is has acquired the brand directly to the joint venture partner or a mature platform "used", launched a little after transformation "joint venture Background own brand" models. MG3 platform from SAIC's joint venture partner, American General and the Italian Fiat SCCS platform jointly developed, in this platform are people familiar with the birth of a new model Sail, there are people more familiar with the Opel Corsa and not very familiar with the Fiat Punto.


    MG MG3 model parameters
    SAIC had intended to build its own Roewe 150 A0-class model, but the acquisition of NAC followed by "sharing" to be used in the MG above, which have seen today MG3. Judging from the body parameters, 3999mm × 1728mm × 1517mm, and 2520mm wheelbase are in the areas of domestic A0-Class front of (body size and wheelbase is greater than the benchmark model class-Fit (word of mouth configuration Gallery Forum)), since the Roewe 550 (configuration Gallery reputation Forum 4S shop) for SAIC to learn and master one of the major domestic auto market success of magic: longer, so its class in the leapfrog, apparently MG3 also SAIC's good to have inherited the mantle.


    MG MG3 dynamic parameters
    Parameters from the engine, we also found that the current in the MG3 on the power system have been identified from the SAIC, Nanjing plant NSE their small-displacement engine, with its latest model Roewe 350 above that Taiwan 1.5L engine with variable valve timing the same code with the 15S4U. Transmission may also directly copied from the Roewe 350, on which sets of 5-speed manual.


    SAIC A0-class car finally naming MG MG3
    For the people who, MG brand awareness sort of a small, or even as too "small minority" of some unimportant or trivial sense, even with a "MG" power and prestige are also very pretty like "noble" gas After the Chinese name. Former club NAC SAIC bought the bag to be after the start systematically SAIC Roewe and the MG's were integrated, making the formation of the two brands complement each other mutual non-interference in another situation: Roewe main British aristocratic qualities and modern fashion combination of science and technology, and put the focus more on the MG sports highlight the unique style and unconventional personality. The same platform with the Roewe 550's MG6 although can not be called mainstream, but has been barely surviving on the MG can be considered for the beginning to pick up. MG3 at this time gave us the arrival of a signal: A0 level in the domestic market, MG also have the big move it!

    I think it may be saying that the MG3 fails to have a family resemblance to the MG7 while there are similarities with the MG6 but the actual words don't seem to make much sense to me.

    As for the American General, I think there is speculation and rumours in there, SAIC are doing a good job of keeping up the interest Wink

    well I see "above steam" and "majestic" there too. The autotranslate has just overheated!

    . 在欧洲上市的 MG3车型将会在英国西米德兰兹的长桥工厂生产,车型将在2012年正式上市,售价预计在5900英镑,约合6万元人民币。
    MG3 model launched in Europe will be in the UK West Midlands's Longbridge plant, vehicles will be launched in 2012, prices are expected to £5,900, about 60,000 yuan.

    Don't buy a watch off these people or it might be a Sago Quartz. I bet the autotranslate knows where Birmingham is! though I have no idea what "West" is in Chinese...

    I see only Fiat Panda 1.1 and Kia Picanto 1.0 for that, list prices £7,665 and £6,895 respectively. The MG3 could be cheaper than a Perodua! or is that price before taxes?

    Longbridge factory production models will be in 2012, prices are
    expected to 5900 GB pounds, about 6 million RMB.

    Not that cheap, surely?! Is that just a simple exchange-rate conversion to GBP? If it's that cheap I'll have two!

    And more good news for Longbridge.

    Well the info did apparently come "from the relevant channel" so maybe we should assume MG will be making "affordable sportscars" again - the modern midget? The power output of the base model maybe supports that idea...

    There has been no mention of one, but the MG3 is not all that small. How about an electric micro MG in a few years time?

    Electric MG? It would need to be a high-performance one to appeal to me Smile

    I'm really excited for the future of Longbridge. It looks very bright indeed. Do you think that the MG3 will reach the heights of the old MG ZR?

    The MG3 will certainly outsell the MG ZR as far as global sales go, in the UK there is a lot of competition, we will have to wait and see.

    Wartburg got away with putting the radiator behind the engine

    Why is it some journalists talk about an electric engine? Can't they tell the difference?

    The electric T27 is being developed as a partnership between Murray’s design company and
    Zytek Automotive, who are designing an all-new electric engine and gearbox.

    The latest MG3 spy photographs


















    With the integration of SAIC and MG after the full integration of the two independent brands in collaboration the introduction of complementary products is more harmonious, MG brand development model has been fully integrated into the existing planning system of Roewe models but with a more sporty, personalized market position. More models are to be enriched to the MG brand system.

    Model code IP12 Roewe 550 hatchback became FastBack coupe type MG6, and ZP11 of A0-class hatchback car may be the original entry-level model Roewe 150, which has now been identified will be the latest generation of the MG3 model, it has already been logged in the 214 Ministry of Industry directory, plans in September this year, officially on the market.

    The future development of the MG brand is not only here, Roewe 350 A-Class car platform, code-named AP12 hatchback model has also been gradually emerging, is expected next year to become MG5 capacity to the market (first public appearance on 21st April). In the future there will be a small SUV, code-named AS21 model, as well as the code AP13 tourer version of 350 series models are expected to augment the MG brand, in 2-3 years, MG7 and Roewe 750 model will be followed with a facelift and updating, and then will be completely taken away from old models of British MG descent. Further strengthen MG brand cars camp, the future of these new cars will become its own brand cars SAIC's main camp and impact on the overseas market.

    In particular the upcoming MG3 model, the Beijing auto show, we have taken the lead exposure of the car was eventually locked "MG3" the model name, followed by Beijing Auto Show, the new car to MG ZERO concept car unveiled the identity of , to the recent inclusion in the Ministry of Industry MG3 model directory, model code and the dynamic parameters of exposure, the next is in the second half of the formal market, and will be introduced this year, MG brand in the most important new models.

    MG3 Although the positioning A0-class hatchback, but the extension before the Roewe 550, Roewe 350 at the same level up the design concept, the body should be stronger than the equivalent wheelbase model, which is MG Roewe and most own brand, the brand can and joint ventures competition an important factor to keep fighting. Skoda Fabia crystal sharp compared to the 2465mm wheelbase, and Shanghai Volkswagen will be put into the fifth generation model 2470mm wheelbase POLO, MG MG3 reached a near-wheelbase A-class models 2520mm size, body length and breadth dimensions 3999 × 1728 × 1517mm is obviously better than the equivalent models. Respectively before and after a 1505mm wheelbase and 1493mm, configuration 185/65R15 wheels, high electric sunroof with models equipped with the same level models are bound to be reflected in the configuration advantages.

    214 from the latest Ministry of Industry and directory of view, this new car will be code-named CSA7153 Roewe 350 model configuration and the same 1.5L engine, which sets the four-cylinder models, code-named 15S4U maximum power to 80kw/6000rpm, maximum torsion moment also reached 135Nm/4000rpm. Manual models configured with the same five-speed MT transmission, curb mass reached 1140kg, Automatic models use a more economic AMT transmission, rather than the Roewe 350 AT 4-speed automatic transmission, curb mass 1150kg, compared with the Roewe level model lighter by nearly 130kg, which will bring more car Hatchback MG3 this outstanding power performance.

    Today this group of the latest spy photos appear to factories, front and rear bumper and the headlights have been finalized, the new front face of continued MG6 models similar style, large size before and after the bar and grille guard plate surround, but also reflects MG3 new car than the end of the exposure test Roewe 150 sports car more stylish side. All black interior with white multifunction steering wheel and audio panels, into the ipod and other fashion network elements, all of which contribute new car as soon as possible with young consumers in the open market.

    For this transfer of MG brand new car we should be no stranger to the car after several Sohu interpretation, from the earliest 150 model Roewe brand, to the MG brand may be under the existing model MG2 MG3SW new models of the evolution of line is very clear, but today we have the latest spy photos gave us two revealed a message that this is considered MG2 before the new car models will eventually naming MG3, spy photos tail fonts although somewhat vague, but the words still faintly visible MG3, and MG6 indicated method is very similar models, MG metal fonts and red "3".

    Today's no camouflage really making the exposure, as we interpret according to the analysis before the spy, the former face is completely transformed into a similar style models with MG6, narrow grille set with the at Guangzhou auto show has just released the new MG Silver logos. Black headlamps, huge black bumper grille branded new car will sport the brand style. Column A very special black coating is easy to make people think of Swift and other models, look at the overall structure from the MG3, and indeed quite the former somewhat similar. Benefit from the C pillar rear end of the lid-shaped taillight design vertical bar, to ensure a great opening. The new rear bumper protection plate is a large area of black cars from the MG Roewe transfiguration of a significant change in the post.

    And the previous analysis is different, and will be naming MG3 and the original MG MG3SW models have some overlap, it is easy to produce the same car in different segments of the singular model. Is the original MG3SW will launch soon in the MG3 leave the stage? Actually not the case, according to sources, this original code S261 in the A0-class car, and just listed Roewe 350 model is actually the same technology platform, code-named later models adjusted to ZP11. This new MG3 is expected to be listed in October, according to SAIC's recent planning, MG 3SW this year will launch a small facelift model, maintained marketing, and therefore recent classes, the MG3 and the original new Some MG3SW will fight side by side.

    Re: The New MG3

    Recently, on the Beijing-Shanghai highway (Shanghai to Suzhou) the occasional new MG3 SAIC MG road test team, and clearly captured the only mildly disguised MG3 road test the new spy photos. From this series of spy photos, some of the details can be predicted that the upcoming new MG3 except perhaps ordinary edition, will be launched over the same period its CROSS (cross) version, and main entry family cars market. MG3 details on the new spy photos, please see the above graphic part.

    Earlier, according to the information exposure, SAIC MG MG3 model is brand new debut 2010 Beijing International Auto Show has been the MG zero concept car production version. It uses the classic five-door hatchback car hatchback body structure, vehicle dimensions are: length 3999mm × width 1728mm × high-1517mm, wheelbase models reached the same level the more prominent 2520mm level than the level of POLO , Jing Rui and other models to be superior.

    Despite the earlier period of time, the new MG MG3 on the road test report has appeared continuously, but the network from easy car to take pictures of this view, MG3 has entered the market before the final test phase data, most of the camouflage car clothing has been launched to, the rest of the body before and after the bumper stickers does not affect the overall appearance of our understanding of MG3.

    Spy photos from the first face models of view, it is almost exactly the original MG zero concept car, which blackened headlight contour, chrome-plated grid and the grid under the signature of the hexagonal (octagonal?) air intake, etc., regarded MG zero concept car design elements migrate to a more reasonable production car.

    Of course, in addition to and MG zero concept car has a very high similarity, the mass production version of the MG3 has also done a little from a cost point of view changes, such as smoked black headlights do not use LED or Xenon headlamps design, but with a common crystal drill-type halogen; conceptual outer rearview mirror camera was replaced by ordinary mirror. In addition, because the reason to test the car, including some junctions, joints, paint and other delicate degree of mass production in cars has a certain gap distance.

    Although the picture through this series of spy photos we can not determine what the chassis of the vehicle with the design, but it is understood, the new reference is the original MG3SW MG3 and the Fiat Punto chassis structure and others, using the former McPherson Independent suspension, after the drag arm semi-independent suspension design. This suspension is in order to ensure the car with comfort and control and integrated level of the premise, the maximum cost of vehicle control, thus bringing the price down even lower.

    I suspect a combination of pedestrian safety and trying to match the MG6 while appearing as a junior model to the six.

    The three has never had the bonnet lines, that was just the Zero which achived them by lowering the bonnet and loosing pedestrian impact room:

    You never know, they may turn up on the british version or maybe the turbo version - the equivalent of the MG ZS 180 body kit; but if they do then I think they could do with being a little less strong than on the concept car.

    yes very true they could. I think it still looks good even without the bonnet lines.
