The MG Icon SUV debuted today at the Beijing Auto Show. The Icon is design-wise inspired by the good old MGB GT. It is very much still a concept car in loox but MG has plans to actually make it, to compete with fine cars such as the Nissan Qashqai and Mazda CX-5.

The MG Icon SUV stands on the same platform as the Roewe 350 and MG5. The Icon is powered by a 1.5 turbo, fortunately no electric blablabla here!, that poops out a decent 135hp and 200nm. This same engine will also be available in the 350 and MG5 in the near future. Well, it is a nice looking thing but all a bit too messy, especially up front. When MG cleans that up they might have a winner ’cause cool it is for sure.

Interior very good, sporty, modern and still classic. Red leather seats hark back to old MG’s.

    The front end is nice, but the back just look like a Juke knock-off.
