After teasing us with a couple of renderings last week, the Chinese owned British manufacturer, MG (Morris Garages) has unveiled its stunning urban SUV, the MG CS Concept at the Shanghai Motor Show.
Judging from the photos, the design of this concept, said to be penned by a top design team led by MG Global Design Director Anthony Williams-Kenny, did not veer away much from the sketches previously shown.
The front fascia features headlights with multi-faceted ‘shard’ structure that supposedly refract light in different colours and shape. It also has an aggressive large central air vent flanked by two smaller chrome and red rimmed vents that seems to continue on to the side sills and ends at the rear vents that mirrors the front. The taillights also features the ‘shard’ structure. The red highlights, also seen on the roof rails, wraps the outer rims of the 20 inch alloy wheels.
The overall silhouette of this concept is said to give the side profile a distinctive, sporty style and youthful appearance with creative design, style and charisma that dominates the look of this latest MG.
Still in concept stage, MG did not reveal anything on its powertrain. It is, however, expected to create a sensation among young, fashion-conscious people and will expand the global reach of the MG brand.
MG TO UNVEIL URBAN SUV CONCEPT AT SHANGHAI SHOW
20/04/13 — A stunning MG urban SUV concept car will be unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show.
It will be the world premiere of the cutting-edge MG CS concept, designed to slot into the compact SUV sector, one of the fastest growing areas of the global automotive market where style and sports utility dominate fashion trends.
It’s the latest result of a massive investment in the brand by MG’s owner, the giant SAIC Motor group, and previews MG’s first production urban SUV. It will be unveiled on the firm’s stand at around 3am (BST) on April 20, Press Day at the Shanghai Show.
It has been penned by a top design team led by MG’s Global Design Director, Anthony Williams-Kenny. The MG CS oozes British design flair while embracing the sporting DNA of MG, an iconic brand.
The MG CS has many strikingly unique features, including the headlights which have a multi-faceted ‘shard’ structure which refract light in different colours and shape from the side, but coalesce to form the iconic MG’s trademark octagon from the front.
A strong horizontal emphasis gives the side profile of the MG CS a distinctive, sporty style and youthful appearance. Creative design, style and charisma dominate the look of this latest MG.
MG has a rich history of daring designs that break new ground and sophisticated UK design has carried through to the family of new generation MGs. These include the MG6 production car and the MG ZERO concept car, which pointed the way to the MG3 production model.
There has been much speculation about an MG SUV and this model is expected to create a sensation among young, fashion-conscious people. The MG CS concept will expand the global reach of the MG brand.
