Meet the MG GT for the Chinese car market

Spy shots showing the new MG GT in China, parked inside the exhibition center for the looking Chengdu Auto Show where it will officially debut tomorrow.  The MG GT looks like a fastback but is in fact a sporty sedan, 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. Price will start around 120.000 yuan and end around 150.000 yuan. The MG GT will be launched on the Chinese car market just before the end of this year, and it will go on sale in the U.K. in June 2015.

    How many cars does MG sell in Europe (UK only?) annually?

    And when will they start to market it in the rest of Europe? Why the hesitation?

    Is it “only so good” – that just the UK customers can accept it? 🙂
