MG Motor reveals details of new SUV

DUBAI, August 27, 2019

British automotive brand MG Motor has revealed the first details of its first seven-seat SUV - MG RX8 -  as the brand prepares to introduce it to showrooms region-wide in September.

Prices start from $21,850 for the entry level model up to $25,700 for the top of the range trim.

A robust and spacious SUV – with the largest wheelbase in its segment - the new seven-seater introduces MG Motor to a segment it has previously never been present in.

The MG RX8 is a fully equipped 4x4 with six different driving modes. Its strong truck chassis frame is capable of handling the toughest off-road terrains, and is powered by an efficient 220HP 2.0-litre turbo engine.

Its spacious modular interior features adjustable rear seats and the largest third-row space in its segment. An array of premium materials including wood grain and soft-touch trim gives the RX8 a high-class feel.

And, modern features such as a 10-inch touch screen in-car entertainment system, ventilated seats and wireless mobile device charging capabilities make the RX8 the perfect partner for an active family.

Tom Lee, SAIC Motor regional director, parent company of MG Motor, said: “For the first time in our 95-year history we are introducing a seven-seat SUV.”

“With the new MG RX8, we are making a bold move into a segment we’ve never operated in before, and I am confident that this car will make an impact amongst its competitors,” he said.

Lee continued: “This year sees us introduce three fantastic new products to the Middle East – the MG RX8, MG HS and MG5. With these new products, our Middle East model line-up is stronger and more appealing than ever. The MG brand is growing in the region, and across the globe; our total global sales for the first half of 2019 exceeded 120,000 units.”

“As we enter unchartered territory for the brand with the new RX8 I am confident that we can offer a robust, practical and well-equipped SUV in a segment which is remarkably popular here in the Middle East,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
