MG X-Motion Concept Will Lead To A 2019 Production SUV

MG has officially unveiled its X-Motion Concept at the Beijing Auto Show after a number of teaser images got us excited about the model.

Set to act as the brand’s range-topping SUV when it reaches the streets in production form next year, the X-Motion will initially seat five people but there’s a possibility a slightly larger variant could be introduced at a later date.

Like other recent MG models, namely the ZS and GS, the X-Motion Concept has an eye-catching and somewhat appealing design. For example, the front end has more than a touch of Mazda to it with sleek headlights that seamlessly connect to the large front grille and pronounced nose.

Production model will look far less interesting

Elsewhere, the X-Motion has black wheel arches and very small side windows, particularly for second-row passengers. The rear of the concept is made up of Infiniti-esque taillights, dual circular tailpipes, and a small roof spoiler.

The road-going MG X-Motion will be powered by a 2.0-liter petrol engine but power and torque figures for this unit have yet to be confirmed. Nonetheless, the automaker has confirmed that it will introduce electrified powertrains at a later date.

Elsewhere, the vehicle will be available in two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive and come complete with features including adaptive cruise control.

Keep your eyes peeled for the production X-Motion later this year.

    MG are getting really good at “borrowing” styling cues from other manufacturers,and reinterpreting them into something attractive, if not especially distinctive or original.
