Who says badge engineering isn’t alive and well? We’re getting the MG5 next year, but here’s a taste of that car…
…in the form of the MG350.
The Chinese export MG 350
We’ve already given coverage to the Roewe 35o on AROnline, but it’s interesting to see that in those export markets where the Roewe name doesn’t work, and the MG cars developed in Shanghai are still some time off, they’re getting the Roewe cars with MG badges slapped on them. It’s possible to buy an MG 550 and 750, but here we take a close look at the 350, which in the coming months will spawn the new MG5.
We hope that the real Octagon badged car is somewhat more Euro-friendly to look at. Especially as we’ve seen that car close up, and it certainly looks, feels and sounds promising, even without the USP of having the world’s first Android powered infotainment system. Enjoy the gallery.
