Today MG Motor unveiled its all-new SUV, the MG GS.
It took place at a preview event at the London Motor Show.
MG also announced the GS will come with the British manufacturer’s first automatic transmission.
The SUV’s top specification model will be available with the option of a DCT gearbox.
The GS (pictured) will also come with a1.5-litre turbo petrol engine and will be available in three different trim levels.
Matthew Cheyne, head of sales and marketing for MG, said: “When considering transmissions and engine choices, we listened to our customers and looked at market trends.
“It’s not only a momentous occasion to unveil our first SUV, it is also a significant moment to announce our first automatic – something many of our customers have been waiting for, and so we’re thrilled to be offering it to them.”
MG said that when prices are announced in June, they will reflect the “family pricing strategy”.
“Regarding how much this fantastic new car will cost, it will be consistent with our other models. We’re proud of the fact our prices are transparent. When we say our cars are affordable, we mean it. The price structures are easy to understand and have no surprise additions.
“When we officially launch the GS next month, people will be able to find out more about the car’s performance and when they can get behind the wheel of one.”
