    MG5-1.5T version equipped with six-speed manual gearbox listing by end of year


    SAIC MG MG5 is the flagship of a hatchback compact car, the main sport compact hatchback segment.  Recently, the online auto market site from SAIC passenger Chen Ji, Senior Manager, Marketing Communications Industry Department learned that the end of the year MG5 family would have "new arrival" equipped with 1.5T engine MG5 will be listed, in addition to turbo engine, matching 6-speed manual gearbox is also one of the highlights of this model.  We speculate that, MG5 1.5T is expected to be in late November at the Guangzhou auto show debut.

    Appearance, MG5 1.5T models remains a personality "anger" front face, the biggest change is the installation of the lower lip chrome trim, the appearance of the vehicle to meet the people's aesthetic needs.  Rear does not change, just the right logo adds Turbo words, show car's power, body size and wheelbase models are consistent with the 1.5L.

    Interior, nothing has changed, we have obtained this set of spy photos should be low with manual transmission models, so the car does not load iVoka human-computer interaction system, but with ordinary sound system replaced, the figure of the red button to test the car's emergency stop button, the production car is not.

    Power, the new MG5 will be equipped with 1.5T engine, maximum power of 99kW, the maximum torque of 200Nm, with matching gearbox has also been fully upgraded for the six-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed automatic transmission, while the new 6-speed temporarily not equipped with dual-clutch gearbox.

    MG5 in carrying a new turbocharged engine with the new gearbox after, in power there will be a significant improvement, more in line with the car, then the positioning of urban young.  Easy to see Shanghai Automotive respond positively small displacement supercharged big trend, the market reaction after the release we'll see!

    And 1280 Kg so 0-60 in about 8.5 seconds, about the same as the MG6.

    Wonder why they don't round it up to 100 KW ?
