Cool Nanjing to make MG Streetwise

Nanjing is launching a version of the old Rover Streetwise in China as an MG.
(http://jalopnik.com/cars/spy-photos/...na-239080.php).

Considering Nanjing still builds a car based on a 1984 Seat, the Streetwise is like a car of the future
Haha, I love Jalopnik ,they're so funny.

I think it might turn into an Austin not an MG.


Yes, I like Jalopnik as well , but they have made a mistake - that car has got very little to do with Honda, even the 1995 version was designed by Rover - the connection with Honda was the previous one to that which was a joint design.

You may be right about the badge mg-zs but after photoshoping it, Nanjing printed it out and stuck it on the car - the photograph is real!

Faux Crossover/Niche segment is wise to get into, its a profit business case

Streetwise certainly got Citroen and VW fired up enough to bring out their own versions.

Recently shown to NAC management, this MG-badged Streetwise has reportedly been greeted warmly. Especially as demand for smaller cars is set to explode in China in the coming years.

Nanjing seem intent on slapping an MG badge on ANYTHING they see.

I think even they'd draw the line at an MG Punch!

That poor MG badge; it has been stuck on pretty indifferent automobiles in the past, but pretending a Rover 200 with large bits of plastic stuck on it is now an MG is absolutely cringe worthy. It does the marque no favours at all.

The last proper desirable MG was the MG RV8.

Now your credibility is truly shot! RV8 desirable? Take a 1962 body shell, leave the cart-horse suspension at the back, make a few styling tweaks to the wings and lights etc and stick some walnut and leather inside the cockpit, then give it some outdated cast-off V8 block and sell it for similar money to a TVR! Not surprising the British stayed away in droves and left it to the Anglophillic Japanese to take most of them.
