    MG's new SUV, spy photos for Shanghai Motor Show?


    MG domestic sales MG3, MG5 and MG6 models. These are all cars from the product line seems to lack an SUV. It does not matter, SUV soon. Because we have recently captured the spy photos of a the MG brand new SUV models.

    This car is a lot like Ssangyong Korando?

    Yes, it is a lot like. Look almost exactly the same from the rear. In fact, if you know that the the SAIC acquisition of Ssangyong, MG belongs SAIC this will better explain more. MG SUV of this essentially is the Korando. Throughout the resources owned by SAIC in the case of MG in urgent need of a SUV, Korando more than almost only the best choice.



    The [MG a new SUV spy photos]



    Ssangyong Korando, multi】

    Design, the new car before the face evident MG styling features. Small V-shaped grille and hexagonal position reserved for the MG car standard has exposed the true identity of the car, it also demonstrated the MG brand and lively personality.



    The [MG a new SUV spy photos]



    Ssangyong Korando, multi】

    The Body posted SMTC is what does that mean?

    The SMTC mean SAIC Corporation Technology Center Enterprise Standard (Enterprise Technical Standard of S AIC M otor T echnical C enter). This not only once again confirmed that the new car identity, but also shows that SAIC final quality testing is being carried out to the car.

    This car with the engine?

    Because the relationship of the platform, the first course there will be the use of in the Korando more than the 2.0T petrol engine, the diesel engine is expected to temporarily will not be introduced. In addition, we also speculated MG This SUV is likely to be equipped with SAIC's 1.5T turbocharged gasoline engine and dual-clutch automatic transmission. This will not only make the new car with lower prices and better fuel consumption and performance, apparently very favorable sales.





    【Figure MG new SUV in overseas Test spy photos, once by some media mistakenly believe facelift of Ssangyong Korando multi]

    Editor Comments: The market is always broken down gradually. After 20 million-level SUV market saturation, the major brands to establish their status to the 15 million level SUV market, a growing number of excellent models. MG new SUV competitors do Keangkela, Peugeot 3008 and many other models. Reference to imports of the Ssangyong Korando more than the entry price of 149,800 yuan, can speculate the the MG SUV starting price is expected to control 13 million, first, no matter how new car true colors, at least this price sounds very attractive.

    So, what do we think of this then?


    I hope that the front end gets a bit more restyling than just a bit of a grill and a badge in such an awkward shaped space

    I think they should give it a family resemblance to the XROSS since from the grill badge it is an MG. Need to see it without the disguise before making a judgement though. I guess most of the work has been done by the same team that did the W5, and they didn't manage to change that much from it's ancestor!

    The W5 does seem to have got a decent following, the fact it is derived from a Ssangyong doesn't get mentioned and I suspect sales are production limited, they certainly increassed when they moved the factory and have been flat recently.

    Could do with the 1.9L diesel engine for the UK...

    Doesn't appear to be space for a reasonable sized MG badge on the back, it needs a big one along with an MG style exhaust and a bit of a difuser Neutral

    I was just reading that sales of SUVs (particularly small ones) have almost doubled in Europe since 2007 and that no manufacturer can afford to be without one. MG need this car here before the MG5.

    The new Vauxhall Antara comes from Korea, but its successor will be made in Europe.

    Since they have only disguised the front, maybe all the modifications to the sides and back are not on there, if they are testing engine and chassis then there wouldn't be any need for them but there would be need for the new grill and splitter at the front to test engine cooling. Being an MG, I think it may look somewhat different when finished even though the W5 didn't.

    They need to be this bold; they need to make a car that actually looks like this, not a watered down version of this. Like the disappointing transition the MG5 went through from concept to reality for example.

    There are not that many auto shows left other than in China! Australia has cancelled it's show this year. China is the world largest car market.

    At least SAIC do turn their concepts into reality unlike MGR.

    From all accounts the Ssangyong based car isn't going to receive much changes so where does this new concept fit in?


    One other point to note is that the Icon was based on the 3 whereas this new concept is being touted as being based on the 5, so it doesn't replace the Icon as such.

    I dont think 'real' sports saloons are the priority of the new MG.

    I dont mind though, as long as they do retain a bit of sportyness.

    The 6 seems to strike a nice balance.

    I think the 6 goes further towards sportiness than MG saloons have for very many years. Not since the days of Cecil Kimber have MG Saloons had obviously different body shells to their sister non MG cars. The only thing it is missing compared to past MGs is a more powerful engine than the non MG version but the 1.8T gives perfectly decent performance, as does the diesel which is only found in the MG version. I still think the MG6 will get a more powerful engine when the NLE is released next year. MGs have never had excess power except for the 6R4 and that was only because regulations required it.

    Looks like it will come after the MG5, first production end of next year so presumably the Icon will be first too, but it does get the new 2L Turbo direct injection NLE engine for those that want some power.



    April 20, SAIC MG brand's first new urban SUV concept car MG CS will be unveiled at the Shanghai International Auto Show. It is understood that the SUV dimensions and CR-V, Tiguan similar to, the feeling of real car than the picture is much larger, equipped 1.5T/2.0T direct injection turbo engine, matching DCT dual-clutch transmission end of next year, the fastest mass production.

    MG CS concept car located in the largest share of the compact SUV market in the body of the vehicle revealed a large area of the use of the shard design England facet aesthetics in this model on its head. Headlight shape, is a lean and pure triangular pieces composed in the sun can be a reflection of the ever-changing, quite the personality, in addition to many other details can be bright spots.

    These pure British Department of Design from SAIC's global design director Tony and his MG the hands of the British design team, this group of talented elite in the inherited traditional and innovative awareness, MG personality, temperament, create force, "the spirit of the brand demonstrated most vividly.

    MG CS is still in the concept stage, shape may change part amount. very very attractive concept car from the point of view, SAIC does not allow consumers to be disappointed.

    Surely the Icon was just a design exercise - there's no way that'll make production. It was just a 'canvas' for a lot of 'design language' I think; showing how classic DNA can be utilised on a new model. It doesn't fit with anything else they've made or styled.

    More importantly, are those computer generated images of the CS actually of the same car seen photographed above? In other words, have they done a computer model of what they want the CS to look like, but the reality is a new front bumper on a SSanyong Korando?

    There is no official information on the Korando images, just speculation, it might just be a test bed for the Icon's powertrain, or maybe more likely it is the Roewe W3 with a misleading grill, the W5 already being SsangYong based. The current images are too early for it to be the CS, spy shots of that shouldn't appear until around a year from now. The MG CS is rumoured to be based on the MG5 AP11 chassis which has always had an SUV in the plans so probably has no connection with the Korando.

    As far as I know the Icon is still in the plans and should be ready before the CS but I haven't seen confirmation for a while.

    Only a few days left before the show...

    What makes you think that a UK spec MG3 would appear at the Shanghai Show scratch

    No doubt they will have some sporty looking MG3s but I doubt there will be anything labelled "UK Spec."...

    OK, the MG6 Magnette did make its first appearance at Guangzhou, as did the MG6 Diesel, but Guangzhou is not the biggest Chinese Show of the year and they have plenty of new stuff for Shanghai.

    Well, there are images of a partially disguised MG3 knocking around that looks alot more Euro spec that what we have seen before.

    Also, on MGs website I had a live chat with Doug Wallace yesterday and he said that the UK MG3 would be unveiled on April 20th and in UK showrooms for late Summer.

    Also, on MGs website I had a live chat with Doug Wallace yesterday and he said that the UK MG3 would be unveiled on April 20th and in UK showrooms for late Summer.
    I wonder if it will be available in China too like the MG6 Magnette is.

    UK MG3 unveiled on 20th? Must be at the Shanghai show - most peculiar.

    I must say I find the multiplication of MG/Roewe/Ssanyong platforms a little bewildering. Not to mention the MG6/Roewe 550/MG 550 etc etc. They really ought to tighten that up - hopefully they will be a little more co-ordinated for the 'next generation' cars as just sticking the octagon on the Roewe totally undermines any progress they make with the MG brand as a whole.

    Anyway, thats a little off topic...

    So what we're looking at are computer generated images of the CS which should be translated into an as-yet unseen MG? And the MG version of the Ssanyong Korando is something else entirely? Whatever it is, I hope it comes to the UK as the MG6 is about as visible as the reborn TF was.
