Interiors of India-bound MG Motor’s premium sedan leaks out

Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Autohome have posted spyshots of the India-bound MG Motor’s premium sedan, the next-gen MG6. It’s appears to be a significant improvement all-around from the current MG 6. The second gen model (codename: IP32) will make its world debut on 25 August at the 2017 Chengdu Auto Show, local media reports say.

Compared to the outgoing model, the new interior has a more upmarket and a certain European feel. It features an angled centre console housing a large touchscreen, minimal button count, EPB (electronic parking brake), MG ZS-inspired 3-spoke steering wheel and a large colour MID between the two instrument dials. The model spotted has an all black interior theme, but we expect beige+black and other dual tone options to be available.

The exterior draws design inspiration from MG’s latest design direction, which was previewed by the MG E-Motion concept. There are cues from the MG ZS SUV, such as the wide hexagonal mesh grille directly flanked by headlights with circular LED DRLs, and a sporty bumper with silver underlining. It will retain the fastback rear-end, as evidenced by the open tailgate.

Engine lineup is reported to include a 1.0L 3-cylinder turbocharged DOHC petrol engine with 125 hp at 5,200 rpm and 170 Nm peak torque between 2,000 – 4,700 rpm, as well as a 1.5L turbocharged DOHC 4-cylinder petrol engine with 169 hp at 5,600 rpm and 250 Nm at 1,700-4,400 rpm. If launched in India, a diesel option will be offered. In the U.K, the current MG 6 packs a 1.9 DTi-Tech turbodiesel with 148 hp and 350 Nm of torque. 

The new MG 6 will compete with the Honda Civic, Ford Focus and the EU Skoda Rapid.
