    MG6 2013 minor facelift & DCT/6 Speed transmission

    The MG6 facelift exposure second half



    In October last year, SAIC MG6 launched the annual change models - 2013 models MG6. Of this annual facelift the MG6 models compared to the old models, a major upgrade that intake grille to the chrome trim and body with a "shark gills" decorative. In addition, new models of white, orange, gold and red colors body can choose a black roof design. In the configuration, the increase in new car to the front parking sensor, front seat heating function.

    Dynamic part of the 2013 models MG6 still offers the choice of two power 1.8DVVT and 1.8T engine. 1.8L naturally aspirated engine with maximum power of 133 hp and maximum torque of 170 Nm; 1.8T turbocharged engine maximum power of 160 horsepower and peak torque of 215 Nm. They match the five-speed manual and five-speed manual transmission.



    The MG6 a small change models

    However, with the the MG6 models of brothers Roewe 550 upcoming mid-term facelift models, has just launched the the annual facelift of MG6 will get the upgrade again, launched mid-facelift models will be followed by the Roewe 550. MG6 mid-term facelift what upgrade? A few days ago, we get a small facelift MG6 test spy.



    The MG6 a small facelift

    From the the obtained test car spy point of view, a small facelift the MG6 in appearance should not change compared with cash or in the test car did not reflect the specific changes in the appearance. Only the logo on the tail the SAIC and MG6 DVVT, identification by the left and right sides of the license box to move to the left and right lower part of the taillights, which will make the logo more prominent.




    The MG6 a small facelift interior

    In the interior part of the facelift MG6 test car's interior layout is basically the same and the cash. The detail is worth noting is that the shape of the shift lever. The small spy photos facelift MG6 for automatic models. But its shift lever shape and the current model manual and automatic models shape differences. And this should be is the the MG6 small facelift to upgrade launched a six-speed dual-clutch DCT transmission flag.




    The MG6 a small facelift

    In addition, although from the outside to see the facelift MG6 control configuration is not upgraded. But I believe that the final launch of the commercially available version of the small facelift MG6 should be updated in this regard. In addition, in the vehicle's instrument, facelift MG6 should also be subject to modification.

    Facelift MG6 is expected to be launched in the second half of this year market, its price should be flat and the existing price range; course, equipped with six-speed dual-clutch DCT transmission cars has improved in the price, but it should be amplitude little

    I hadn't realised that the base models in China have manual transmission.

    But look here:



    we know the practical "big red button to stop" feature never makes it into production, Wink but also "no handbrake" as we were expecting!

    I don't think it's a manual but an auto if you look closer to the side of the gear leaver. If it is 6 speed I hope they add it to the diesel engine and bring it to the UK then more options for disabled drivers like me

    the blurb suggests that is an auto:

    The small spy photos facelift MG6 for automatic models.

    What I meant, when there is talk of a 6-speed replacing a 5-speed, is that the Chinese-spec base models are manuals, which I had not realised (thanks Ash, Mr. CCT)

    A Motability car really should have an automatic option...

    I've got some good news for you then Very Happy, the Dual Clutch Auto boxes have started to leave the factory:



    China's first self-dual clutch transmission off the assembly line in SAIC's new factory


    A few days ago, the first real sense of the automotive industry in China has independent intellectual property rights and its own brand of car dual-clutch transmission assembly (DCT) DCT new factory in Shanghai Automotive Transmission Company off the assembly line and batch production. The DCT transmission developed after more than three years, the cumulative invested billions of dollars, to reach the world advanced level.

    The transmission is the heart of one of the components of the car, dual-clutch automatic transmission with its advantages of fuel economy, a sense of control, leading the "New Wave" of today's auto industry development. Whether a joint venture brand or brands, imports are matched by the automatic transmission. 12 own brands in 2008, the National Development and Reform Commission led composed of medium Alliance Investment Co., Ltd., a joint venture with the United States to master the key technologies of the dual-clutch transmission BorgWarner to jointly develop domestic dual-clutch transmission assembly. At that time many experts are skeptical of the autonomous enterprises can eventually mastered DCT core technology in the industry.

    SAIC transmission company responsible person, SAIC DCT project using the most stringent in today's international automotive electronics product development processes, to master the technology to make a product in just one year, repeated testing, validation spent more than two years, more than the development of vehicle To be long. Final mature product off the assembly line, SAIC the first to break the monopoly of foreign technology in the field of electronic control, to fill a number of gaps, and successfully applied for over 10 patents for inventions. SAIC passenger cars, the new downline double clutch transmission assembly will carry on this year plans to launch the Roewe 550 facelift models.

    Good news in a way but it has to have CO2 of less than 120 as a company car..but heading in the right direction.

    Thank you once again for another great piece of news.

    Another piece of the jigsaw will fall into place when

    when an automatic duel clutch transmission becomes available.

    Although time is of the essence in this area. Also a larger petrol engine

    is also urgently required as is often mentioned on this site.

    Slowly but surely MG seem to be making steady progress.
