    Here's the article:

    http://www.chinacartimes.com/2012/01/17/mg6-turbo-diesel-spotted-china/

    If you listen to European MG fans all they want is a diesel, and perhaps an automatic gearbox, the current MG6 made in MG UK from kits sent from China offers neither, and thus there hasn’t exactly been Apple-like queuing to buy the MG6. Europeans love their diesels, UK’ers love their diesels even more, so for MG to launch without one is a little unforgivable but these spy shots from Auto.163 apparently show a turbo diesel MG6 readying itself for a UK launch. Of course the diesel unit is being tested in China ahead of the engines being shipped to the UK, now where the engine is from is still a mystery, SAIC were romantically linked to a diesel engine manufacturer in China for a few months but apparently the deal was denied, so the mystery continues.

    Rumor has it the engine is a 1.9L turbo diesel unit, but Chinese media haven’t yet received engine statistics but when they do, you can be that we will be the first to tell you.









    We have learned that the above car is now running with a six speed gearbox rather than the rather decrepit 5 speed manual currently used and supplied by Aisin. The new six speed manual raises more questions than it answers, is this a stop gap measure before the release of the dual clutch tech automatics later in 2012?
