2010 Mg 6
Posted on

Looks like a compact hatchback, competitor to Focus&co. Will this car complement MG's offer instead of old British MG5?

Re: 2010 Mg 6
The previously shown MG5 won't see production, it was merely an MG ZS to bulk up MGs range at the Beijing or Shanghai (can't remember which) car show. The design for the ZS (as previously mentioned elsewhere on here) was owned by Honda and when MG Rover collapsed in 2005 Honda engineers visited the Longbridge factory and destroyed all the tooling, and they have since refused NAC permission to use the IP for the car.

There's apparently also a new MG5 due next year, along with the 6.

Auto Express Car ReviewsText: Paul Bailey / Photos: Larson20th November 2008Get ready for a new British-built MG hatchback! Its three years since the last ZS rolled off the production line, but MGs Chinese owner plans to launch this stunning model in 2010, pitting it against the next-generation Vauxhall Astra, as well as established players such as the Ford Focus and VW Golf.

Auto Express has learned from MG insiders that Nanjing Automobile Corporation (NAC) is set to introduce the new hatch initially in China. It will then roll out the same model this time built at MG Rovers old home of Longbridge in the West Midlands Europe-wide.

Based heavily on the Roewe 550 saloon, the car has a pert rear, and an aggressive front end more in tune with the sporting ambitions of the MG marque. Its Chinese-built N Series engine (a development of the original K Series) comes in both naturally aspirated and turbocharged 1.8-litre forms. Outputs will range from 120bhp to 160bhp, and there are plans for a 200bhp hot hatch, too.

The MG will feature stiffer springs with compliant damping, and suspension settings are currently being honed in both China and the UK. Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp (SAIC) joint venture partner and the owner of the Rover brand has tasked staff at Leamington Spa, Warks, with testing these sportier settings. Roewe 550 test mules have been seen pounding around the Millbrook proving ground in Bedfordshire.

Its believed that the Longbridge-built model will be renamed in the tradition of the post-2001 Zed range, and will undercut its mainstream rivals. NAC-MGs sales and marketing director, Gary Hagen, recently stated that he was looking to position the cars with value for money in mind.

The new MG will look different in European and Chinese forms, with the Longbridge machine being specifically tailored for the western market. NAC-MG UKs finances are currently somewhat limited, and a significant financial injection from China will be needed to ensure that the plans for Longbridge will come to fruition. However, top brass understand the value of building MGs in the UK to retain brand credibility.

Next year is expected to be a quiet one for Longbridge announcements. SAICs Leamington Spa staff will move en masse to the Product Development Centre at the historic facility. And a mainstream version of the TF roadster will be rolled out early in the year, maybe followed by a facelifted version created to coincide with MGs 85th birthday celebrations.

MG6 Sedan - Unveiled!

February 26th, 2009
The first picture of a future MG6 sedan have been leaked to the internet via the website. Further details on the MG range have not been released, but its widely rumoured that the MG6 will carry the Roewe 1.8T engine, as the MG6 is essentially an MG edition of the popular Roewe 550.

In 2009, SAIC plans to sell 45,000 Roewe vehicles, where as MG have been given a much lower sales target of just 10,000 vehicles. In 2008, Roewe sold 26007 vehicles, and MG sold 9232.

With cars such as the above MG6 hitting the market soon both in China and the UK/EU, its expected that the MG brand will jump far ahead of its Roewe counterpart.

Now the question remains, will the thousands of drivers across the EU who currently drive something from the MG Z Range trade their motor in for an MG6?
