The MG6 sedan has finally launched in China after months of speculation. The MG6 sedan is based on the Roewe 550 sedan but taking on the MG corporate beak and also a new seat or rear lights, it looks very different to its almost bland appearing 550 cousin now:
The MG6 sedan will share its powertrains with its fastback sibling, which is a 1.8 naturally aspirated block and also the 160bhp turbo assisted model. Pricing was not announced at today’s launch at the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo, but it is expected to be similar to the fastback model, so in the region of 128,800rmb to 192,800rmb. As with the fastback MG6, the design was carried in the UK by SAIC’s MG-Motors design team who are also responsible for the soon to launch MG3 and Roewe 550. A UK launch of the two cars is expected to take place in early 2011, but MG fans will be able to get a taste of both of them at this years Top Gear Live! event at Earls Court in November.
