2013 MG5: first images revealed

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 12, 2012

As excitement for the arrival of the MG heats up, official images of the five-door hatchback have been released recently. The MG5 will be launched in the UK market 18 months from now and will be offered in China very soon. From these pictures, we see that the C-segment-sized hatchback is equipped with angular headlights and it even has prominent creases along the bonnet and front wings.

The model intended for China will be powered by a 1.8-litre petrol engine that delivers about 105bhp. European models will be offered with a lineup of engines, which is expected to have at least one diesel unit. There were speculations that it would be available with a range of downsized petrol engines with capacities between 1.0 and 1.5-litres.

Its power outputs range from 115bhp to 162bhp. Both MG chief Dave Lindley and head of design Tony Williams-Kenny are directly involved with the European development program.

This car offers trim and suspension settings that are significantly different from Chinese market models. It’s likely that the MG5 will be offered just as a five-door hatchback. The MG5 name implies that its dimensions will be between those of the MG6 and MG3, which will be launched in early 2013.
