MG6 Facelifted in China, Geely Binrui Rival
Some Malaysians may be familiar with the MG brand. This British car manufacturer has received a 2nd (or maybe 3rd) lease on life under Chinese auto giant SAIC. Their C-segment sedan, the MG6 just got its mid-life facelift which brings a new, aggressive look, a new nomenclature system, and some updates under the hood.
It’s notoriously tough to get accurate press information on Chinese market vehicles, especially when it’s a China-only vehicle. This is why the images of the MG6 facelift are so low-resolution. The information and photos come from this Chinese website. Besides the design revision, the 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine’s output has increased from 124kW to 133kW. Information on the facelifted PHEV version of the MG6 has yet to be leaked.
Here’s a list of accessories and options that also come with the revised MG6.
It looks like we got a bunch of rim designs, in differing finishes from white paint to dual tone alloys and more. Body coloured door handles and chrome door handles are available too. A C-pillar mounted badge in either black or chrome is seen as well. Wing mirrors in black and even one with what looks like a blind spot camera can be seen. An alternative, sportier looking black grille is shown along with what looks like tinted headlamps and tail lights. These are shown with other blacked-out trim pieces. There also seems to be a little spoiler for this fastback design.
Unfortunately, it’s very unlikely this will come to Malaysia. MG have yet to make a right-hand drive conversion of the MG6. It’s more likely Proton will work with Geely for the Prevé/Suprima S replacement model.
While MG vehicles aren’t currently sold in Malaysia, their crossovers are available in neighbouring markets like Singapore, Thailand, Brunei and even Indonesia. Again, the MG6 is not available in any of these right hand drive markets.
