The other cars around which the MG6 is slotted are the MG GT, which is a compact sedan, and the MG5, a compact hatchback. If looked at carefully, it can be noticed that the car's design and quality have improved over the course of the year. The first generation of the vehicle started production in 2010, and the second generation underwent production in 2017 after taking some more time to come into existence. Undoubtedly, the vehicle has evolved over the course of years in terms of both design and performance.
The latest model of the MG MG6 is here, and it is a potential option to consider if you are on the lookout for performance-driven compact cars. The new model of the MG^ comes in tow variants – The AT Alpha and the Trophy AT. Let us now take a look at all the essential specifications of the vehicle in detail.
The MG MG6, in addition to sporting a fantastic design, possesses a lot of potential under the hood too. Inside the machine lies a very powerful 1.5L, turbocharged inline-four gasoline engine. There are a total of 4 cylinders and 16 valves present. The impressive engine has enough potential to easily create a power of 162Hp/5600 rpm and an impressive torque of 250/4300 rpm. The vehicle also features a 7-speed double-clutch transmission, which makes sure that you get the power you need when you strike the throttle. When the car takes to highway roads, it shows that even though it is designed as an executive sedan, it has the potential to outclass even racing cars. The response to throttle movements is insanely accurate and quick even when the car is operating in normal mode. The steering is a breath of fresh air as well since it allows the car to pass through roads where there is a traffic jam swiftly.
If you think the normal mode makes the car worth the bucks, you should try the Sport mode. When you switch to sport mode, the speed gauges feature a red glow, and the throttle response subsequently becomes significantly more responsive as well. This car has excellent handling as well, due to the presence of an independent suspension. The rigidity of the framework facilitates the car to minimize body roll. The transmission gearbox is good since it lacks the classic stutter during starting and halting the car. When it comes to fuel efficiency, the car can become quite thirsty if you continuously roam around in city roads. In simpler words, the MG MG6 gobbles up around 6.5l per kilometer at an average speed of 16 kilometers per hour. The fuel capacity of this car is 50 liters, which is appreciable. There are tons of safety features embedded in the car. They include – Anti-Lock Braking System, ESP, CBC, TCS, etc.
What the MG MG6 indeed aims at can be determined by looking at the interiors of the car. The interior furnishing has been done with pure perfection and finesse. The leather seating following the subtle color combination of black and red makes the appeal of the car elevate even further. The faux fiber carbonated trim on various components, including the central console, placed centrally, the column for doors and shifter column spell out perfection and ooze out class. The presence of such elegant colors makes you feel that you are driving a premium-ranged car.
When it comes to Ergonomics, the car checks the right boxes here as well. The power-adjustable seat of the driver provides unmatched comfort, and the steering wheel feels comfortable to hold due to its flat-bottom. The fine bolstering of the front seat makes sure that you stay in place during sharp turns. Three average-sized individuals can fit in the rear spacing area without facing any sort of inconvenience, but the rear seats will feel a lot spacious of two passengers are seated. The plus-sized driver might feel a bit discomfort in the driver's seat. There are tons of multimedia and cruise-control buttons, and therefore, it is safe to say that the MG MG6 comes loaded with essential technological in-car features. The LCD touchscreen helps you out in several ways. The rear AC vents provide relief to the back-seated passenger during scorching summers.
The external design of the MG MG6 hint at its sporty intentions. The lengthy hood and the short-heightened deck at the back provide to the car an athletic vibe and an aggressive stance. There are hints of design inspirations from other sedans, but the MG6 makes sure that it maintains its originality by the addition of its own features in terms of design. The hexagonal-shaped grille spells out perfection. The stardust grille (MG likes to call it that) features the official emblem of MG, which hints at subtle marketing. The large projector-style headlights represent a 'London's Eye' aesthetic to the audience. What makes the headlamps even more impressive is the integration of daytime-operating lights. The backside, however, sports a simple look. The LED taillights are simple in terms of design. The presence of faux exhaust ventilators at the bottom backside diffuser is an extra addition, without which the MG6 can manage just fine.
When it comes to the presence of lines and stripes, there are very few of them present on the outer body of the car. However, the absence of lines does not deteriorate the overall imagery of the car, and the MG6 maintains with ease the sophisticated style it portrays. Lastly, the set of wheels that come with the car provides such a good grip. The dual-tone 18-inch wheels made out of alloy contribute to adding to the car's natural aggressive stance. To conclude, The MG6 outshines in terms of design and feel.
