Interiors of India-bound MG Motor’s premium sedan leaks out

Autohome have posted spyshots of the India-bound MG Motor’s premium sedan, the next-gen MG6. It’s appears to be a significant improvement all-around from the current MG 6. The second gen model (codename: IP32) will make its world debut on 25 August at the 2017 Chengdu Auto Show, local media reports say.



Compared to the outgoing model, the new interior has a more upmarket and a certain European feel. It features an angled centre console housing a large touchscreen, minimal button count, EPB (electronic parking brake), MG ZS-inspired 3-spoke steering wheel and a large colour MID between the two instrument dials. The model spotted has an all black interior theme, but we expect beige+black and other dual tone options to be available.

The exterior draws design inspiration from MG’s latest design direction, which was previewed by the MG E-Motion concept. There are cues from the MG ZS SUV, such as the wide hexagonal mesh grille directly flanked by headlights with circular LED DRLs, and a sporty bumper with silver underlining. It will retain the fastback rear-end, as evidenced by the open tailgate.



Engine lineup is reported to include a 1.0L 3-cylinder turbocharged DOHC petrol engine with 125 hp at 5,200 rpm and 170 Nm peak torque between 2,000 – 4,700 rpm, as well as a 1.5L turbocharged DOHC 4-cylinder petrol engine with 169 hp at 5,600 rpm and 250 Nm at 1,700-4,400 rpm. If launched in India, a diesel option will be offered. In the U.K, the current MG 6 packs a 1.9 DTi-Tech turbodiesel with 148 hp and 350 Nm of torque.

The new MG 6 will compete with the Honda Civic, Ford Focus and the EU Skoda Rapid.

the only fast thing about the back is how fast yuo can run away from it , absolutely no practiclity about it , what ever happened to opening a boot thats the size of the rear end so you can actually put stuff in it without been a contortionist.

Can't tell anything about the back from this image- shot with quite a wide lens up close to make the car look more aggressive (or just possibly because the photographer had no room to step back).
Either way, messes with perspective so I wouldn't worry about the rear hatch size from this shot.

According to a post on a motorsport forum, according to top brass at MG it won't be coming here so won't be entering the BTCC with it next year.

Just saying like, even though the last press release committing to a further 3 years in the BTCC did mention working on a new vehicle sometime in the next 3 years.

So will it come to the UK and will it be the new BTCC car for next year or the year after? And will 888/BMR ditch MG etc etc.

I do love the Btcc rumours threads as most of it is complete bowl locks and some bits prove to be correct.

In my view it is another step forward. Other than the hideously large front grill that seems to afflict many cars these days it's inoffensive. Depending on the UK spec it might be something that I would consider. It's pitched into a tough market sector though, so it will have to be good to be average if you know what I mean.
