Bit pointless trying to get JLR to do a deal over the ROVER brand to sticker up the new MG's is what I ment.

Is it just me but does anyone else think the 2013 Renault Clio sport resembles the MG5 ?

yeah guess so, but to be honest most euro targeted boxes look the same to me.

Front end looks rather similar, a bit of a mix of the old MG6 front (the old Corsa style coloured strip above the badge) mixed with the meaner headlights and large central badge-into-bonnet look of the MG5



Rear end not so much, more classic Clio influenced I think.

What this kinda proves again is that the MG5, if released now would be pretty much on trend (if the awful rear end is fixed up) but waiting 2 years as SAIC seem to suggest it'll look old hat as this Clio will be mid-cycle by then and getting a facelift...

The Clio is being launched in 2013 , and I thought the MG5 was being launched then also but last quarter, but agree that if it comes after the most comments will be they copied the Clio , even though it will have been launched 18 months earlier in China!

Nice to see the Classic Clio shape is still there.

latest pic of the MG 5 looks like it has spoilers and the seats have red centre inserts.

Some nice red brake would finish it off a treat

Cant wait for this. Very tempted to get one early 2014 when, hopefully, the new range of engines will be available. 1.5 turbo ftw!

I like the front splitters but the sideskirts look a bit tacked on, if they didn't go up at the sides they'd be fine.

The sideskirts look wrong, it's the crease it's too close to the swage line. If it was plain it would work

Those skirts look like cheap tat you'd get from Ripspeed & co. The Chinese can't design body kits for toffee, let the UK guys sort out something more subtle and fitting for the car.

Are there any photos of the back of this sports version?

Can't believe this is going to take over 2 years to release though, MG need it now.

Jesus .. That bodykit looks a bit erm like an afterthought. My Lancia Delta Turbo in the 1980's had sideskirts that looked like they belong better than that, and they looked stuck on. The Chinese sure do have a different take on what is normal these days in car styling. It looks like they have been inspired by a 1980's Richard Grant Bodykit catalogue.

I wonder the back end still looks like as interesting as the normal model.

Hmmmm, Im not normally one for negative comments on here but I agree with the comments about the skirts and the kit! It looks awful. I hope it looks nothing like that when (if) it finally makes it to the UK.

Why no pictures of the rear?

Why are there no pictures of the rear end so that we can see if they added any spoilers to the back or added a different rear diffuser?

Cheers..
