MG Motors has globally unveiled its latest SUV, the MG One on July 30, 2021. The British automaker has teased the SUV several times ahead of the official global unveiling. The new MG One SUV will be available in two trims namely Fashionable and Sporty.
The SUV is based on the brand’s new Sigma architecture. This architecture will create an interior space efficiency of up to 70 percent. It further comes with a powerful chip technology coupled with an active digital ecosystem. The creases and character lines on the body of the SUV give it a sporty touch. In terms of design, the new SUV gets a tapering roofline that swoops downwards towards the rear. Upfront, it flaunts a newly-designed 3D grille. In addition, it gets a set of 18-inch alloy wheels. Moving on, the user will get a choice of customization options on the SUV. Feature-wise, MG has not revealed anything yet. However, we can expect the car to get a large touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, wireless charging, panoramic sunroof, powered front seats, among many others. Besides these, the SUV is available in two color options namely Bubble Orange and Wilderness Green.
Performance-wise, the MG One is likely to come equipped with a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine that also does duty on the MG Hector. The engine is expected to generate a maximum power output of around 180 bhp and a peak torque of around 250 Nm. Transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed manual and a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The SUV will initially go on sale in the European markets. If at all it is launched in India, it will go up against the likes of the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, Renault Duster, and the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun.
