The most recent teaser was a short clip that started with the words “THE WORLD OF MG IS ABOUT TO OPEN ITS GATES,” followed by a bright yellow car zooming by and the text “2 DAYS TO GO.” The teaser revealed a few key characteristics of the featured automobile, and it became certain that the vehicle is going to be MG GT even from a top-down position.
Since its pictures were released to the public a few months ago, the MG GT — also known as the MG 5 — has been a hot topic among car enthusiasts. With its launch, the car will be a C-Segment compact sedan that will compete with the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, and Hyundai Elantra.
It will be available with two engine options: a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine with 119 hp and 135 Nm of torque, and a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 173 hp and 230 Nm of torque.
In the foreign market, the MG GT is available with either a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission, however the CVT is most likely to be marketed in Pakistan.
Six airbags, an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and the MG Pilot package, which includes autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and front and rear collision warning, are among the vehicle’s other impressive features.
