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

British MG ZS

And the Rover 45 was an updated version of the Rover 400, introduced in 1995:

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:

A couple of comments here...that front end almost has a Chrysler look to the grille.

I like the metallic blue color and the overall shape of the car.

I own and am currently driving a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS(hence my CCF nickname)and this car does not resemble a Mitsu Lancer or Galant much at all.

So, is this a 2008 MG5, available now for sale in several markets around the world?

Not sure about the last picture.

And we all know that the new cars from NAC-MG are all based on the 'old' MG cars.

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.
