Bear in mind that its the Chinese spec and that the UK version may well get interior changes, like the 6 did.
Has anyone suggested: that car needs bigger wheels?
Actually, if there was one thing that MG Rover did, they knew the sports hatch segment really very well, and sold cars whos wheels filled the arches and look extremely purposeful. Even the "lowly" 1.4 looked as good as the 160 - bar a bit of body attenda and different style wheels. This was genius.
I hope that MG in the UK (and Europe eventually) can refocus their cars towards the enthusiast driver's market. That's where MG's niche lies. MGs have never been mass market, and perhaps if that is the market SAIC want to crack, it may be time to consider reviving one of the heritage brands. Morris might be neat, although with Longbridge being the production base, an Austin would be a better idea.
I know they won't do this, of course. Reestablishing MG is proving hard enough without trying to revive a long-dead brand - and it's very expensive. But in the long, long term? I think this is a better idea - better even than trying to launch Roewe over here.
Hmm - not sure where that tangent came from - sorry. Back to big wheels on the MG5...
