NAC MG5 is just revived MG ZS which on the other hand is nothing more than sportier version of Rover 45 presented in 1999.

And the 400 was based on the British 1995-2001 Honda Civic Liftback, which was also available as stationcar (Aero Deck):




And the Rover 400/Honda Civic liftback & Aero Deck were both based on the Japanese 1992 Honda Domani:

NAC MG planning whole new MG5?

Quote:
Previously, NAC MG were planning to produce the MGZS as the MG5, the MGZS is essentially a Rover 45 body with a sports engine and interior but the age and design of the ZS has come into question at NAC MG. The Rover 45 was launched in 1999, and is clearly showing its age in 2008, the only solution for NAC MG was to scrap plans to produce the MG5.

The Chinese press have reported for some time that the Roewe 550 will be rebranded as the MG6, leaving the MG5 moniker empty. The Chinese automotive press reported yesterday that NAC MG are working on a 1.5 Turbo motor which will be put into the MG5. The MG5 is reportedly being reworked from the ground up, including a new platform.

NAC MG and SAIC reportedly have quite the portfolio of engines now they have merged together, they have engines ranging from 1.1 to 2.5l and are capable of producing 250,000 engines per year, this year NAC MG are investing in new engine lines to produce small displacement engines and expects to have the capacity to produce 300,000 engines per year. NAC MG are working hard on researching 1.5 and 1.6 Turbo engines which would fit into the future MG5.

An MG spokesman, Mr. Huang Ke Ji, was quoted as saying ‘We believe the MG5 platform from Rover [The MGZS] is too old fashioned to be launched into the modern 2008 market, thus we have begun to design and develop a new platform on which to build the MG5′

MG wont be the only company producing small displacement turbos this year, JAC are reportedly working on a 1.3T, Great Wall have a 1.5T up their sleeves, and Fiat will bring their Linea to China with a 1.4T later this year.

The MG3 SW is reportedly going on the market in May 2008, after being delayed, and the MG7 Automatic will be on the market in the last quarter of the year.

Is MG5 going to be produced after all?
http://auto.sohu.com/20081225/n261407546.shtml

Quote:
On the south cooperation, adhere to the SAIC Roewe and the MG brand of two-line, the Roewe, who have embarked on the Grand differentiated product line. Grand positioning of more movement, in particular the emergence of MG5, the more vivid illustration of this trend.

Earlier, rumors had Roewe 550 will share a platform with the MG5, because on the reasons for South cooperation, MG5 project will be stranded. Recently, some from official sources to make these allegations be proved unfounded, MG5 independent platform for the development of the whole project is making steady progress. Development projects, Sohu vehicle access to its exclusive as the spy.

MG5 is a based on the Rover 45, MG ZS platform that is the four-door sedan car, which was originally scheduled for sale at 9995 pounds to 16,200 pounds (equivalent to approximately RMB 100,000 -16.3 million). The main vehicle is Rover in the 400 on the basis of the re-designed to improve on, and the Rover 400 from a technical and we are more familiar with Japanese cars - Honda Civic. As early as 2005, therefore, intends to purchase South gas MG, Honda in the study, Honda has taken up to the manufacture of the Rover 45 and ZS-type equipment and design drawings. In mid-2005, Honda's withdrawal of its ownership in the Rover's Longbridge factory equipment, and burned some of the key drawings, blueprints and equipment for the Rover 45 and MG ZS production has a vital role. That is why the slow progress of the development of the MG5 an important reason.

At the same time, NAC MG has also said that in the former MG Rover 5 of the Department of R & D platform and then re-create a new 5-Series platform. According to relevant personnel said that the South's research and development departments after the merger, SAIC will MG5 platform launched on the basis of the Roewe 350 hatchback version of the sedan version, and even sports wagon version. Its production has been identified will be placed on Nanjing MG the second phase of the new production line.

Aspects of modeling, MG5 will inherit the family of MG's consistent descent, but simple is not simple. The low-key front spoiler and, smooth body design, and prototype cars, the first grid into a cross-shaped grille. From the huge wheel and on Kuan Tai will be able to realize its extraordinary grip. The short tail did not damage the quality of the vehicle than at the same time, through the vertical height to provide sufficient storage space. Although there is no vehicle too much publicity, but its true that the use of a large number of the popular movement elements.

MG5 priority will be carrying 3 powertrain, are 1.5L, 1.5T, 1.5CVT, divided into six main transmission speed manual and six-speed automatic two. In addition, the Shanghai auto show MG5 parameters in a single MG5 will carry a nominal 2.0 emission diesel engines. But given the current form, taking into account the cost, SAIC may also be present with its Roewe 550 in the 1.8 pragmatic and 1.8T powertrain.

According to the NAC program, MG5 Nanjing will serve as a platform for 000 Jue A level 4 of the first models in the Shanghai auto show in 2009 with the Roewe 350, MG6 appearance together. Pricing will range 9-120000 yuan for the Chevrolet personalized PK needle into a strong arm. I believe it, many indulged in precision control of the Department of German consumers will have more than a good choice.
