  • MG Motor's newest car brings no-compromise offering to the compact sedan segment, packed with luxury car features. 
  • Available from USD 9,900
  • British-born brand enjoying impressive rise in popularity around the region
 
(29 July 2019, Middle East) MG Motor has confirmed that the all-new MG5 will go on sale across the Middle East this August, with prices from USD 9,900 for the entry level model up to USD 12,600 (excluding VAT) for the top of the range. Ensuring that the region's car buyers will no longer have to compromise when choosing a compact sedan, the all-new MG5 brings together spacious sporty styling with an impressive list of hi-tech features and entertaining performance and handling.
 
The arrival of the all-new MG5 is the latest stage in the exciting expansion of the British-born brand's Middle East car lineup, and comes at a time when more customers in the region are buying MG cars than ever before.
 
The new MG5 is totally new from the ground-up, with a sporty look that perfectly suits those with an active lifestyle. At the front, the lightening blade design LED headlights, daytime running lights and chrome Wingspan grille make a strong visual statement, while the double curve of the side panels serves to accentuate the new model's sports credentials.
 
Designed with the tech-savvy millennial audience in mind, the MG5 is equipped with a raft of cutting-edge features. The on-board infotainment system includes a 10.1-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Cruise control comes as standard, while push button start, keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seats with manual lumbar support for both driver and passenger, a rear-view camera and a 360o surround-view camera for ultimate safety are also available, depending on model.
 
Despite sitting in the highly competitive compact sedan sector, the MG5 is particularly roomy. At 4601mm long, 1818mm wide, 1489mm high, and with a 2680mm wheelbase and 512 litre boot, the new model benefits from best-in-class interior space. It also offers a premium travel experience courtesy of the carefully designed, extra-comfy seats and use of soft-touch material around the cabin.
 
In the Middle East, the MG5 will come with a lively yet efficient 1.5L petrol engine delivering max power of 118hp and up to 150 Nm of torque, and mated to a fuel efficient CVT. An entertaining driving experience is bolstered by MG's XDS system for enhanced cornering, a choice of three steering models and ESP traction control across all trims. Superb handling is further prioritised by the fitment of Michelin tyres available in the lux trim.
 
Ready to tackle the challenges offered by the Middle East's roads, the MG5 is big on safety. Passive safety features include a high-tensile steel cage-style body, the use of advanced laser brazing technology to enhance overall vehicle strength and stiffness powered by curtain airbags. An auto-hold function, ABS, EBD and a corner brake control all contribute to active safety.
 
Tom Lee, Managing Director for SAIC Motor Middle East, parent company of MG Motor's Middle East operations, commented: “The arrival of the all-new MG5 is yet another signal of our commitment to car buyers in the Middle East. MG Motor has been steadily making its mark over the past couple of years by offering customers an increasingly diverse range of models, equipped with unparalleled levels of advanced features and at prices that are hard to match.
 
“With the MG5, we are taking things up another level and making a real statement of intent. This new model is a true game changer, and will be pitched directly against less well-equipped models from the established brands. With an extremely competitive price, in a segment that is dominated by fleet sales, the MG5 is a true challenger model that will hold great appeal among its young target customers.” 
 
The British-born car brand enjoyed a great 2018 in the Middle East, with record sales registered despite the challenging market conditions. With a network of dedicated retail partners across the Gulf region, boasting 21 modern showrooms and 21 service centres that all deliver the highest standards of customer service, the brand is rapidly expanding its presence.
