MG Motors Reveals All-New 2018 MG6 In China

Under the patronage of SAIC, MG Motors has developed an entirely new MG6, which will go on sale in China this year, before being exported to the UK in 2018.

Visually, the compact four-door model has a grille that appears to have been inspired by the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Concept, projector headlights with incorporated LED DRLs, and a fastback profile that’s reminiscent of its predecessor.

Inside, the new MG6 has a minimalistic dashboard design, large turbine-shaped side air vents, the Zebra 2.0 infotainment system, an interactive LCD instrument panel, 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel, push-button start, sport front seats with manual adjustment, leather trim with contrast stitching, and carbon-like inserts.

The new MG6 is based on the same architecture as the Roewe i6, which debuted at last year’s Guangzhou Auto Show, with two powertrain options: petrol and hybrid.

Car News China reports that MG’s latest model is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 170hp to the wheels through a standard 6-speed manual, or an optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

When it goes on sale locally in the coming months, it’s expected to be priced from around $18,000.

    I thought it was a Mazda at first glance. Very nice non the less.

    That grill is directly stolen from Benzo. But overall I love the shape and the interior looks clean and well thought out.

    This is really good

    meh.

  • sidewaysspin

    The exterior is totally nondescript could be just another Hyundai or something like that.

    God, I love a red interior.

    more of the same cut and paste copycat crap. next!

    Honestly? It may resemble a lot of other cars, but if this sold in the US for $19,000 and came equipped like that demo model, it’s hard to think it wouldn’t be an absolute hit.

  • LWOAP

    MG is still around? I had no idea. Then again, I thought Daihatsu was dead so you’ll have to excuse my ignorance.

    you need to give MG a chance yes its now Chinese but if they can do this and the XS what are they going to achieve in the next few years

    MG SAIC need to start again and they have yes the MG3 6 and GS were very basic and not worthy

    this and the XS are a good step in the right direction.

    The side profile with that odd roofline and confusingly disappearing swage line is pretty unattractive.

    I like the simple basic design of the dashboard. Unlike other cars today that have the tablet sticking out at the top, this one has it in the middle where it doesn’t gather attention. The exterior is influenced by other cars, but still attractive.

    • Gooseman

      although i agree with you that having the tablet embedded in the dashboard looks more elegant, there is a reason most cars have it further up. It helps the driver as he doesn’t have to take his eyes too far off the road, making it a bit safer to drive

  • Vassilis

    This seems good!

  • haudit

    The interior looks like a quantum leap over the rather cheap, insipid design the first generation MG6 was saddled with, but the exterior is somehow less dynamic, and far less well proportioned than its Roewe stablemate, the i6. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2ccad10610e671567f2012ec64a8d8c28f66092b5085681bb61c101e4b3ed4b8.jpg
