MG Motor SUV interiors spied while testing in Gujarat

MG Motor SUV interiors spied while testing in Gujarat

-    Will arrive by second-half of 2019.

-    MG will bring in a premium SUV to rival the Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier and Hyundai Tucson.

-    Manufactured at MG’s new plant in Halol.

MG Motor is busy testing their first product for India ahead of next year’s reveal. Announced in October this year, the MG’s first product will be a premium SUV in the leagues of Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson and the Tata Harrier. A highly camouflaged prototype was spotted once again prowling the streets of Gujarat and this time around, we got a peek inside the cabin for the first time. 

The yet-to-be-named MG SUV will be based on the Baojun 530. Baojun is a sister brand to MG in China under the SIAC parent company. The 530 in the Indian-spec will get MG’s grille and other cosmetic changes. It will be manufactured locally at the carmaker’s newly founded plant in Halol, Gujarat. 

The prototype spotted in the country is still under heavy camo. But we can see sleek LED daytime running lights above the headlamps. The massive MG grille is unmistakable seen under the camo. At the rear, the sleek LED tail lights are slightly different from the Baojun 530 but they look so much more upmarket and stylish. The five-seater is seen to have a thick D-pillar with large overall proportions. This would help it in India since the car buyers in the country have a strong affinity towards imposing SUVs. 

The cabin seen here is heavily cladded too, but we can safely say that the centre console of the SUV will have a large touchscreen infotainment system. The circular knobs below the screen are in a rudimentary state at the moment, but we can also see chrome insert on the passenger side and a flat-bottom multifunction steering wheel. The cabin will come with all the bells and whistles such as smartphone connectivity, climate control, electric seats, six airbags, and a 360-degree camera which will be first in its class. 

The MG SUV will be revealed by the middle of next year and is expected to hit the streets in the second half of 2019. It will be joined by an EV in 2020. CarWale went to China recently with MG to get a behind-the-scenes peek at what to expect for India and you can read about that here.
