The SAIC subsidiary MG is preparing a new top model for the domestic market. The MG 7 does not come as an electric car.
Only absolute insiders should still remember the MG 7. After the BMW era with the British, they left the Rover 75 and its sister model MG ZT. New owner SAIC formed the MG 7, which was offered from 2007 to 2013. Now SAIC is launching another MG 7 – but this time a completely new one.
Sports sedan for the upper middle class
The first teaser images and drawings for the design patent application give a foretaste of the upcoming sports sedan, which should take the position of the new top model at MG. The MG 7 is planned for the Chinese home market. The 7 Series should not make the leap to Europe. Here the Chinese rely more on electric models such as the MG 4 Electric, the MG 5 Electric and the production version of the Cyberster Roadster.
The MG 7 presents itself as a hatchback sedan with extremely long overhangs at the front and rear, which will probably be five meters long. The side windows are frameless from MG. The front is characterized by a low-slung nose with a wide radiator grille and slit-shaped LED headlights. Four oval tailpipes and a spoiler tail on the small tailgate characterize the rear view together with a continuous strip of lights. There also seems to be an optional large, attached rear spoiler.
There is no official information on the drive concept. However, the large radiator grille and the clearly visible exhaust tailpipes clearly indicate a combustion engine, possibly as a plug-in hybrid.
With the MG 7, MG is launching a new top model. For the time being, however, only in China. The hatchback has a sporty design and should come with a combustion engine.
