This is the first MG Motors SUV that will be launched in India on the second quarter of this year (June). Let us be clear that this is not the product in its final spec and form as the final SUV that will launch the MG brand in India is based on this and is expected to be largely looking like this but will be localised and changed for the Indian market.

In terms of dimensions has a length of 4,655 mm, width of 1,835 mm and height of 1,760 mm. It looks big and striking with sharp headlamps and a big grille. The interiors are sporty and well made with a neat stack of buttons and a big touchscreen. Equipment levels are generous with LED daytime running lamps, four air bags, leather seats, panoramic sunroof, Harman Infinity sound system, electronic parking brake and more!

The space inside too would be massive considering the size and wheelbase plus it has a flat floor. In China this SUV comes with a 1.8L or 1.5T turbocharged engine, and a six-speed manual, automatic or DCT transmission. But for India it would be expected to come with a diesel and a petrol- all BS6 compliant with manual and automatic options while the SUV will be expected to be FWD only. We also expect MG to have aggressive pricing with 70-80 percent localisation plus it will have adequate dealers (50 at start to 300 in few years, expecting) to support it as well.

So the first product from MG seems promising and it will be the biggest and most spacious yet priced very aggressively!
