The vehicle needs more power to carry all that extra plastic! Fortunately that’s exactly what it will get. The MG5 Sport will be powered by the new 135hp 1.5 turbo, mated to a six-speed DCT. Now, 135hp might sound like nothing, and it is nothing, but the standard 1.5 only poops out 109…

The 1.5 turbo engine will also be available in the standard MG5, without the extra plastic, which thus will be lighter and faster. But spoilers are coolio!

Interior standard MG5, a bit too boring compared with the exterior. 6-speed DCT.

    The 1.5T will need more like 150-160 hp to lug around that car. SAIC better boost the power and fast.
