MG have only just reemerged onto the British car market after being sold to Chinese manufacturer SAIC years ago. Their first effort, the MG 6 has gone down well with those looking for high levels of equipment at a price that undercuts the competition. At the Shanghia motor show the iconic British brand showed their clear intent to expand.
First up is the MG 3, a take on a space of the market that Mini has long since dominated. This little hatchback will be equipped with a 1.5 litre petrol four cylinder engine that produces 104BHP. To start from around £10,000 the 3 will have three trim levels names TS1, 2 and 3. If MG play their cards right it could be a real competitor to Skoda’s Fabia in terms of value for money.
The star of the show stand however is this, the MG CS Concept SUV. Its striking design clearly shows it to be the Nissan Juke rival that has been rumored for some time now. The compact five-seater has already been confirmed for production and an inside source tells us test mules have been in the UK for a number of months even before the unveiling of the concept. There is currently no word on engines but the CS will be hitting the roads at some point in 2015.
