Spy Shots: MG5 GT is Naked in... England

This is the new MG GT, formerly known as the MG5 Four-door Coupe. The car was spied in Longbridge in England by readers of the MG UK forum, likely in town for shooting promo pictures in a genuine British setting. The MG GT looks like a fastback but is in fact a sedan, check that part of the ass above the crazy rear light.

The MG GT will debut in China on the Chengdu Auto Show in September with a launch on the Chinese car market scheduled for October. The GT is based on the same platform as the MG5 hatchback and the Roewe 350 sedan. Power will come from a 109hp 1.5 and a 129hp 1.5 turbo, and from a brand new GM-sourced 1.4 turbo with 140hp and 200nm, which will be the top-of-the-line engine.

The GT looks best from up front. Price will start around 120.000 yuan and end around 150.000 yuan.

Extra large MG logo in the grille, a feature we will also see on the upcoming facelifted MG6.

    Wheels are again a tad on the small side.

    The location is Cofton Park directly opposite the main gate for MG at Longbridge

    Thanks, Roger! I am surprised, probably they took a plane full of Chinese journalists with them. So my judgement was too quick, sorry!

    Small wheels are good, lower profile tires ride more comfortably.

    I thought the MG5 was to have a boot. On Top Gear, it looked as if it did! Whatever happened to all those Rovers we were meant to be sent?
