China-owned MG Motors is returning to this year’s edition of the Shanghai Auto Show with a new interpretation of a compact SUV. We’ll remind you that MG premiered the Icon study at the same event last year, but whereas the former had three doors and a retro-flavored styling with references to older models of the British brand like the MGA and the MGB GT, the new CS has five doors and more contemporary details.
SAIC Motor group, MG’s parent company, said that the new CS Concept, the first real-life pictures of which surfaced today, previews the British company’s “first production urban SUV”. While no launch date was offered, if SAIC Motors has indeed made the decision to produce the CS Concept, we could see it in showrooms in China and Europe within the next two years.
At this time, no more information has been given about the CS Concept, though, power will likely come from one of SAIC’s more recent turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engines.
