SAIC-owned Wuling motor company just took the wraps off its new SUV, which is based on the Baojun 530, at the ongoing GIIAS motor show in Indonesia. The Baojun 530 SUV will form the basis for the first model from MG Motor India. The name isn’t out yet, the company is, for now, calling it the “Wuling SUV” in the Indonesian market.
The India-bound Baojun 530 made its China debut in March 2018. With its large dimensions and long equipment list, MG India will look at pricing this SUV just below Rs 20 lakh. In China, you get the car with a pair of petrol engines – namely a 1.8-litre naturally aspirated unit and a 1.5-liter turbo-charged one. For India, MG might use a Fiat 2.0-litre diesel engine option from FCA India.
The car will be produced at SAIC’s plant (formerly owned by General Motors) in Halol, Gujarat. The company has also showcased the E100 small electric car at the show.
