MG Motor will be launching a new SUV in Nepal in the second half of 2019, the launch will likely take place around June. So far, based on the images teased by MG, we know that it will be a fairly large SUV, bigger than the Honda CR-V and will be competitively priced on launch. We also know that will be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine which has been confirmed. A petrol engine has not been confirmed yet but MG did hint at either a 1.5-litre or a 1.8-litre petrol powerplant that could be introduced at launch.
But what we didn’t know was when will we get to see the SUV for the first time, until now. MG has now told us that the Nepal-spec SUV could be unveiled as soon as April 2019. MG has also confirmed that it will be showcased as a 5-seater SUV and will be launched in the same configuration in Nepal. In addition, a 7-seater option will also be launched but a few months after the initial launch only.
We had a chance to get close to the MG SUVs and we can safely say that the Baojun-based SUV will be a premium product in its segment and will likely offer premium interiors with soft-touch plastics, touchscreen infotainment, bucket seats, leather upholstery and electrically adjustable driver’s seat. Also, did we mention MG seems to have a thing for sunroofs?
