Facebook user Morris Garages, based in Azerbaijan has posted what appears to be a set of images for an MG5, which is being PDI’d for the showroom. These are the clearest images yet of some of the interior features, as well as the under-bonnet view. With its smooth and inoffensive 1.5-litre power unit, it’s going to have a hard job convincing European hatchback drivers that this is a sporting alternative – but with the 2.0-litre turbo waiting in the wings (as well as 1.9-litre TD), this perception will change rapidly. It is thought that these alternative power units will be available from launch in the UK, sometime in early 2013.
Here’s the gallery.
