International Automaker to launch new SUVs in Pakistan
While the reveal of the MG HS crossover SUV has been getting a lot of hype, the automaker also has an amazing global lineup with other great cars. Last night, Javed Afridi, the owner of JW Park Motors and MG Pakistan, shared a video and images of two new MG vehicles, the MG 6 Sedan and the MG RX8 SUV, on his social media. ------------------------------
The MG 6 is a compact sedan that competes against the likes of the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic in the international market. As evident in the video, it has a sleek and attractive exterior design, and the cabin is finished in leather along with silver and silver trim-pieces.
It features two big screens, one on the dashboard and the other in the gauge cluster, and a Germanic steering wheel with control switches.
This sedan comes with a variety of powertrain options in the international markets as per the need of a particular market. Its most common powertrain which is also offered in the Middle Eastern market is a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine that makes 169 hp and 250 Nm of torque and is mated to a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.
The MG 6 is offered as a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) unit in the Egyptian market at a starting price of around 284,990 EGP, which is just over Rs. 2.9 million.
Not to be confused with the Mazda RX8, the MG RX8 is a midsize 7-seater family SUV that is also popular in the Middle Eastern market and competes against the likes of the Kia Sorento, the Toyota Fortuner, the Hyundai Santa Fe, and the Mazda CX-9 SUV in the international market.
The photos reveal that it has an impeccable fit and finish similar to the MG 6. However, while the exterior design is not particularly exciting as it is a simple, rough, and tumbled-looking SUV, the interior is relatively better.
