    MG5 Spy Images






    Concept 5 / MG 5

    A few days ago, Sohu cars obtained MG5 mass-production cars test spy photos, from the spy photos MG5 mass-production version still keeps many features of MG5 concept. MG5 production models are expected to in Guangzhou auto show officially unveiled at the end, before that let us take a look at MG5 mass-production version are what are important characteristics.

      SAIC MG launched MG5 in Shanghai motor show concept car, this is SAIC acquired after Nanjing Automobile launched the third MG brand of products. Although MG5 is capacity of a concept car unveiled in Shanghai motor show, but MG5 production plan has been basically completed and MG5 tests are conducted for a long time. MG5 is SAIC roewe 350 on the basis of research and development of a compact crossovers, the production platform will be shared with the MG3, although the MG3 is a small car, but MG5 is a compact hatchback car.

      MG5 exhibited by the Shanghai motor show concept car is still fresh, full of personality-compact hatchback design highlights of sports style, but as a concept car of MG5 more exaggerated on the front face design. This exposure test car spy photos despite the large number of camouflage, but shooting details quite rich, from which we can still see the design of mass-production MG5.

      Front part, MG5 test models has remained virtually a concept car design structure, but production models closer to the practical. Headlight parts replaced ordinary light bulbs, lights outline design change is very low. Front grille and replaced with ordinary network structure, the MG6 quite similar. It is worth mentioning is that MG5 test models of inlet design remained a concept car under as it is, huge air intake to maintain the exaggerated shape style, and grille, fog lamps have been modified into more elements of mass production. In addition, the front part of the engine cover after very severe of camouflage, it is not the design features.

      Body side, MG5 production test models and MG5 concept is almost exactly the same. Concept car on the side there is a very obvious high waist line, this line before fender had been run through to the tail lamp part. In spy photos can still probably see this line still exist, while side skirts the lower inset design features still got reservations, however due to the test vehicle with a greater camouflage of possible Visual effect is not obvious.

      The door handles and body side rear-view mirror and concept cars are completely different, after all, a concept car designed by door handles and mirrors too conceptualization. Door handle with black, because the body color is not determined, and therefore cannot determine whether the door handles and mirrors and body color. And can determine is that the rear view mirror integrated turn signal.

      Test vehicle tail style and concept cars are basically the same, between MG6 and between the MG3, is full tail, MG5 MG6 concept car tail design quick-back style and hatchback MG3 type that is not the same, MG5 tail in between, is full. Judging from the spy photos, although disguised at the end of a heavy, but the overall style and concept cars are basically the same. And judging from the thick c-pillar, volume production vehicles and concept cars have also remained consistent.

      Taillight parts and concept car's style is different, and this style seems to have a little bit similar and MG6, white under the tail light using red color styles. MG5 test car had the licence box seems to be designed in the boot of the door, and not designed on the concept car licence box. In the lower part of the bumper, MG5 test vehicle used a black shield, on both sides joined the Kindle tablet, and exhaust pipe using a trapezoid design was placed in the rear right side. In addition, we can clearly see three bumper back a car radar sensors.

      Interior all black style shows the movement of MG5 on display at the Shanghai motor show concept car did not debut interior design, and we won for the first time in this spy photos of MG5 interior styling. Judging from the spy photos, MG5 MG6 and MG3 and interior are completely different, and because MG5 is coming from roewe 350 development, MG5 interiors and roewe 350 with many similar.

      Including LCD screen and air-conditioning regulation areas and roewe 350 with more distinction, MG5 is clearly to be a little change, but also more full than the roewe 350 looks and integration. In the lower part of the console, including ashtrays and shift Rod parts MG5 and roewe 350 is basically the same, even gears Rod styles are the same. Besides steering wheel and dashboard styles MG5 more movement than the roewe 350, especially dashboard uses a barrel design, motion effect more visible.

    Left: roewe 350 inside of the door on the right: MG6 inside of the door
      MG5 will be dominated by movement, which is not only reflected in the double-barrel design on the Interior, and all black in the car interior style are further demonstrates this. Including seats, center console, door inside, are dominated by black. In addition, car door handle and we also found MG5 MG6 quite similar, and not using roewe 350 design style.

      MG5 is equipped with navigation, large-screen LCD, multifunctional steering wheel, and power Windows configurations, can be seen from the limited Interior spy photos MG5 is equipped with navigation, large-screen LCD, multifunctional steering wheel, such as power Windows. In addition, the car is also equipped with an automatic transmission, and distribution and Gear Shifting styles from stalls, 4-speed automatic transmission with the roewe 350 is very similar. Outside the car, we also found this MG5 is equipped with backing radar, rear view mirror integrated turn signal. Also under the aluminum alloy wheels, and are equipped with a disc brake system. In addition Sohu automobile before exposure of an MG5 configurations, including using the 1.5L engine and may use 6AT transmissions, in addition to exposure of a number of security configuration.

      MG5 exterior and interior style, MG5 will again be dominated by exercise-induced, the main young market, seems to marketing strategy and MG3 similar. Judging from the SAIC MG3 rhythm, from concept car to production car debut and listed about a year, we forecast MG5 mass-production models will choose the official Guangzhou auto show debut, and the listed date is about in the first half of next year.

    "This is the third MG-branded product launched since SAIC acquired Nanjing Automobile"? MG6, new MG3, MG5?

    That seems a reasonable translation Smile

    As to "multifunctional steering wheel, and power Windows configurations,". I was thinking that the Inkanet was Google Android powered, not Microsoft Windows! But maybe they mean the glass things in the doors.

    I wonder if it will actually arrive for Guangzhou, I think it might be Shanghai next year since the predicted launch date is June next year. I think it must be being delayed by the need to build a new factory for it as the car must be more or less production ready now. Maybe the small SUV concept for Guangzhou?

    The rear lights look more reminiscent of the MG6 saloon rather than the fastback to me.

    Why build a new factory in China! when there is one ready and waiting in Birmingham. It would be great for Britain to get to build it first, while they build a new plant in China. Well one can dream ( can't they )

    I'm not sure that Longbridge could keep up with the numbers required for China! Pukou can't keep up with demand for the Roewe 350 - hence the need for another even though the MG5 is very similar to the R350.

    Although Pukou is supposed to have capacity for 200,000 cars per year so I'm not quite sure why it can't keep up scratch

    I did not mean for Britain to produce cars for the Chinese market, just Europe. Also just pointing out that their is enough spare capacity in Birmingham to accommodate this. China does not need to first to produce a new model all of the time. Very Happy

    I expect that we will get the new TF first.

    But which country is the better one for testing out a new model and removing all the teething problems? Probably the one with the smaller market, except that they are only just reintroducing the brand here.

    Looking good, I like the interior changes, very similar to current Vauxhalls, but with less buttons thank god. Actually according to G shaw that makes it cheap as it doesn't have many buttons lol.
