The MG3 Xross is another new cross-vehicle at the Chengdu Auto Show and again with something funny in the name. Until now we always assumed it would be called ‘XCross’ but instead it is ‘Xross’, the C has gone missing. New name kinda weird, would sound like ksross. MG probably thinks Xross is very cool. Well, the vehicle itself loox cool indeed with huge pieces of grey plastic, black plastic, in bright orange and a massive roof rack to transport the cow you killed while camping in the wild.
