Despite the arrival of undisguised cars shown exclusively to China Car Times last week, the MG5 proved elusive at this year’s Guangzhao Auto Show. The website had shown the vitally important new car, praising its styling – although AROnline‘s readership was more reserved.
CCT’s Ash Sutcliffe writes, the MG5 is quite possibly the most anticpated car of the year, the concept was unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year and was widely believed to be at the Guangzhou Auto Show this week, especially as we got early shots of the cool looking hatchback ahead of time.
So you can imagine the disappointment this afternoon when I rushed to the MG stand at the end of a day full of appointments to find the MG5 concept and end car missing from the MG stand. The MG stand had only the MG6, MG3, MG3 XROSS and then it was over to the shared Roewe stand where nothing was new either.
