Found on .org but thought I would let you now.
Yes but even 18's LOOK small because the the body is so big.Only 18" wheels!
The smallest engine in the MG6 will be the turbo 1.8!I think I read the biggest engine will be the turbo 1.8 in the MG6
The one I looked at, while not up to the standards of a Rolls Royce was better than I had expected and considerably more refined than a ZS on the road.and that whilst being pretty well appointed (for a Chinese car) the build quality was not great (on the show car).
The MG6 was designed from scratch at Longbridge.This version has been developed for Europe by a small (former) MGR team based at Longbridge to setup the car, suspension etc for our roads and driving tastes but clearly they are still under Chinese limitations.
Have they said that they wont fit a V6? They have said that they will be fitting their new 3.5L V6 the new 750.I think if it was (just) a Rover and at a decent price it would sell OK but MG is supposed to be the performance mark and I cannot see anything exciting here either.... not when MGR were working on a supercharged ZS KV6 with 230 BHP+ before the demise and Honda's sibling, the Accord, has the Type R.
It's the British company, MG Motor UK, that decides what goes on sale in the UK.I don't think the Chinese understand what MG means.... maybe the read the old anecdote MG car = My Grandad's car.
Have they sold many TF's does anybody know?
.......totally agree with this.Styling is horrible & if they think that will sell to a uk market there in for a big shock.Yes but even 18's LOOK small because the the body is so big.
We keep hearing NanjMG are gonna get the styling sorted for the UK market but all we ever see are boring versions that are so unremarkable to look at.
Don't talk about Ford Paul. Thats swearing in this house now.:lol:
I think more than anything I'm just upset. I really wanted to like this car when I first heard about it. I hoped that it might have gone down the route of the Type R Accord only more beefy looking - maybe like a baby XF and with some real grunt. I was going to buy one and then laugh at Bilbo's Mountune Ford as it disappeared from my rear view mirror. A British designed sports saloon fit to wear the MG badge. But no.The problem is that Rover is no longer so the MG marque has to cover both Rover and MG.
