Words: Adam Sloman Pictures: Autocar/MG
UK weekly car magazine Autocar has unveiled these official images of the forthcoming MG5 in its latest issue and online.
The MG5 is due for launch imminently in China, with Autocar suggesting we can expect the hatchback here in the UK in 2013, though currently it’s unclear which will arrive first, the 5 or the smaller, supermini class MG3.
The MG5 continues the family look of the 6 and 3, with it’s large, prominent MG badge drawing the eye immediately and it’s altogether more interesting that the rather plain Roewe 350 upon which its based.
In terms of size it’s the closest MG have come yet to succeeding the brilliant but underrated ZS. Let’s hope it boasts the same rewarding drive the Honda-based hatchback offered.

UPDATE: Over night official images of the car have been released online in China. We’ve updated the image gallery to include these pictures from Autohome.com.cn
