The All-New 2022 MG GT – ‘a rebellious sports sedan’ has launched in the Kingdom.

MG Motor unveiled the all-new MG GT, reflecting the Britishborn brand’s commitment to diversify its line-up with a sporty new model. The new model offers a fresh new alternative in the sedan sector, with its aggressive sporty looks and 1.5L and 1.5T powertrains for optimum power and performance.

Inspired by the classic two-door MGB sports car, the all-new MG GT is the third sedan to join MG’s growing line-up of cost-efficient and high-value-for-money cars.

The new 1.5T MG GT is equipped with a highly-efficient fourcylinder turbocharged engine and a DCT gearbox, which delivers maximum horsepower of 173PS and 250Nm maximum torque to accelerate the car from 0 to 100km/h in eight seconds.

The 1.5L model is equipped with a fourth-generation, fuel efficient, 118 PS 1.5L engine and an iCVT gearbox. Both models boast an XDS curve dynamic control system, which adds to the driving experience. The dynamic performance is further assisted by the sports chassis, which is of aerospace-grade aluminum and has a compact structure, resulting in high driving comfort and stronger handling stability.

The model is the brand’s first sports sedan to feature the third generation of its family design language. A large ‘Digital Flaming Grille’ is separated from the narrow LED headlights, enhancing the powerful and dynamic presence. Complementing the strong downward-pressing bonnet, the rear features a slightly upturned ducktail, which reinforces the sporty look. An end-to-end chrome line along with the wide shoulder of the car and optional tomahawk alloy wheels (Michelin Tyres), add to the premium look and feel.

The dynamic look and feel are reflected in the interior, which is available in contrasting red or black. The seats’ structure adopts a design layout that considers the principles of ergonomics, providing optimal comfort for the driver and better support for the body. A large 10-inch touch screen is fitted as standard, with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, enabling drivers to seamlessly use their smartphones with the car.

Befitting MG’s reputation for offering great value, the new MG GT is equipped with a range of technologies that reflect the company’s forward-thinking approach. The model comes with a body electronic stability control system, and a PDC rear reversing radar, as well as MG Pilot intelligent driving assistance system, a 360° view monitoring system, cruise control and forward collision warning, among other features.

Tom Lee, Managing Director of MG Motor Middle East, commented: “The all-new MG GT serves as testimony to our challenger brand status as we continually seek to exceed expectations, while also introducing a new direction in regard to our design language. The model is a well-equipped car that will further enhance the diverse nature of our exceptional line-up in the Middle East. It is also the ideal model for younger buyers who are looking for a cost-efficient, sporty car that delivers strong performance and provides drivers with an exciting driving experience, while simultaneously reflecting their rebellious spirit.” ✤
