The British-style Hatchback MG5 hits the Market


In 2012, with the London Olympics gaining momentum and attention around the globe, the fashion of UK design is also set to sweep the automobile industry. The UK-style cross-class MG5 hatchback, which combines the sporty character of a coupe with the practicality of a sedan, has formally hit the market.

The MG5, developed on SAIC's Global A platform, is targeted at the A-class sports sedan segment. The MG5 is equipped with a 1.5 litre fuel efficient, low-emission engine, as well as a 5-speed manual transmission and a 4-speed automatic transmission. It fully caters to the needs of those young buyers who enjoy a fashionable lifestyle and wish to show their distinctive personality, and is tailored made for those IT elites and professionals with its cutting-edge design, refined style and hi-tech features, which will make the car a preferred choice among those high-tech addicts.

A distinctly British sports design Brings out the charm of speed and refinement

In the automobile industry, UK design is unique, and UK-style cars are always distinguished by their distinctive, cutting-edge designs. While continuing to offer a refined appearance, the MG5 demonstrates an all-new design idea that goes beyond regular UK design concepts to imbue the car with the charm of speed in each and every detail.

In terms of its overall contours, the MG5 has opted for a hatchback body style, which is popular in Europe, while also adopting pioneering UK design concepts. With sharp, smooth body lines and swooping flowing contours, the MG5 combines the elegance of curves with the robustness of straight lines and strikes a fine balance between dynamism and elegance. The projector-type headlamps, unique in its class, also adds to the beauty and active safety features of the car. What makes the MG5 truly eye-catching is the meticulous workmanship apparent in every inch. Its imported, perforated calfskin seats are reminiscent of the elegance of an English knight, with a sense of impulse and adventure concealed beneath an aristocratic air, while its genuine leather multi-purpose steering wheel also provides a sense of quality. The MG5's extraordinary quality can be felt everywhere, from its sleek surface to the high-tech texture of the dashboard, as well as the details in chrome decoration parts. Such refined workmanship sets MG5 apart from the rest in the A-class segment and is arguably the most exquisite hatchback in the mid-size car market.

During the design process, the careful study of aerodynamic body lines has provided MG5 with extremely low drag coefficient. The super-low air resistance can not only reduce aerodynamic drag, but also boost fuel economy and improve handling stability. Additionally, its near perfect 50/50 axle load ratio improves handling performance and speed limit when cornering, which has accentuated the MG5's sporty nature and demonstrated the sports car design craftsmanship of MG that has endured over 88 years.

All new technologies and comprehensive accessories offer good value and excellent driving experience

The MG5 is a true "smart car" with its functional hi-tech features readily accessible and within reach, which perfectly meets the demands of those young buyers who possess distinctive personalities and seek a fashionable lifestyle. Moreover, with the excellent hi-tech experience it has created, the car is also well-suited for those IT elites and hi-tech addicts.

Additionally, boasting the longest wheelbase in its class, spacious interior, as well as double five-star safety rating, and comprehensive accessories rivaling those offered only in luxury cars, MG5 will be able to deliver excellent performance in all aspects. The MG5 has a 2650mm extra-long wheelbase which ensures driver and passenger comfort. In line with European standards and UK design, the MG5 adopts the most stringent double five-star safety standards, namely the C-NCAP and the European Pedestrian Safety Protection standard, and with its reinforced USD body, the car is extremely safe and durable while remaining light and agile.

The debut of the MG5 on the market will satisfy, with its comprehensive strengths, customers' demands for both fashion and high-end quality, meanwhile fully demonstrating the forward-looking visions and extraordinary strength of those buyers.
