MG GT is Ready for the Chinese car market
Published on September 30, 2014 by Tycho de Feijter
This is the new MG GT, looking completely ready for its launch on the Chinese car market on November 1. Price will start around 120.000 yuan and end around 150.000 yuan. The MG GT officially debuted in a box on the 2014 Chengdu Auto Show.
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. At launch the MG Gt will only be available with a new GM-sourced 1.4 turbo with 156hp and 235nm, mated to a equally new seven-speed DCT. In 2015 the well-known and much-cheaper 109hp 1.5 and 129hp 1.5 turbo will join the line-up. The MG GT will be exported to the U.K. starting in Q1, but only with the 1.4 turbo under the bonnet. No word yet about a diesel.
Size: 612mm/1804mm/1488mm, wheelbase is 2650.
Rear light defines rear. Exhaust pipes are hidden on the right side of the black bumper.
