The premium mid-size sedan market, while popular internationally, it has been quite sluggish on the Indian sub-continent. They are slowly losing their charm in growing markets like India & Nepal with the competition being limited only to a few cars like the Honda City, and the Hyundai Elantra. However, it seems interesting things are brewing over at MG, as a couple of pictures have leaked online which showcase the next-generation MG5 Sedan.
As per the leaked images, the new model will have radical changes compared to the current-gen model. You now get sharper-looking headlamps with LED projectors and LED DRLS, along with turn indicators that are mounted around the air vents on the front bumper. The grille is also new and larger. Moving to the side, it gets a coupe-like silhouette with a sloping roofline and a higher beltline.
At the rear, you get wraparound tail lamps and twin exhaust ports. Overall this new model is sportier, full of sharp streaks and angles; while the outgoing model had a boxy silhouette with straight lines. The 2021 MG5 will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged direct-injection gasoline engine and will be offered in two states of tune. There’s a 120 PS motor option and a 173 PS peak power option.
