Least it will get people talking.

I like the retro MGB grill.

Rest of it........................... think its one to see in the flesh, before passing any comment.

Is it possible we could have some slightly larger pictures?

Hideous - its what Stevie Wonder would make if someone descrbed a Juke to him over a very poor short wave radio.

WTF are they doing with the MG name...

By some sheer fluke Stuart Adamson summed it up years ago:
"So leave me with my dignity
Leave me with my pride
Even though the best of me
Is broken up and put aside
Don’t go dragging my name around
Don’t go dragging my name
Don’t go dragging my name around
If there’s one thing that I won’t stand
It’s you dragging me all over God’s land"

Nissan Juke is what I thought too.

I think they need to have some success doing what they are supposed to do (roadsters and sports versions of family cars) before they start doing stuff like this.

Well, as it is based on an MGB GT it doesn't quite fit with your "roadsters and sports versions of family cars"!

Here is a "slightly larger picture" of the rear for Gary :)

(He must have a big screen :confused:)

I guess I'm the only one that thinks t looks pretty cool then :dunno:
I'd guess so tbh

Doesn't help in that they've done the usual Chinese thing and simply photocopied the front of a Mini.

Looks more like an MGB than a Mini to me!

Only if you choose the only angle that makes it look anything like an MGB.
Going by that theory if I nail an old B grille to the front of my pushbike it'll look just like an MGB?

Oh, hang on I can see it now.......

Sorry, sarcasm filter slipped there for a minute.

So this:

MINI

looks nothing like this:

MG Juke

These pictures may be the wrong way round but not sure tbh. I'm no fan of BMW but they should go gunning after saic for this

I think its time to declare whereabouts in MGs photocopying (sorry, "design" dept) you work Windy.

Juke, Ds3, Evoque, mini, mgb, all rolled into one. At least someone appears to be getting up to speed with current designs. Its quirky and could catch on I think.

I think this is the way forward :D
(a bit of fun with Photoshop)
Ah, a V8 in the front and a V6 in the back. Should be interesting :D

Here are a couple of mine that I did a few years ago...



I think mine have the opposite problem to yours!

Yeah it's based on an MGB GT but it's pulling the whole idea of an MGB GT completely out of shape, by making a Juke rival out of it.

I do think it looks smart (better than the 6 and that dreadful 3) but I still think they've lost focus doing stuff like this.

Well you couldn't make an MG. B GT these days, it would break hundreds of regulations and score zero in pedestrian impact tests.

The Icon concept is supposed to show the future direction of MG design and their second generation of new MGs.

Looks better the 6 and 3 at least.

Designed for USA in mind crossover styling umdertones of MGB but more Volvo styling in my mind.

Thats hope it all continues for MG.
