The adversary for Toyota Corolla will be here in Australia by late 2022 or early 2023. The MG 5 was uncovered in China over a year before however, Australia has to wait until 2023 to get in the driver’s seat of the new MG vehicle.
MG Australia may have blasted up the sales charts and landed as best 10 for volume this year, but we are sure it will not let its positioning slide in reverse.
The MG5 will be from Thailand and pointed directly at the small sedan category like the Toyota Corolla.
MG Australia’s head Peter Ciao recently affirmed to continue the budget-friendly approach of the brand.
Australia’s official details about MG 5 are very few at this stage. Yet Chinese and Thai have indicated what to expect. Here is everything we know so far and be ready to use Car removal services in Sydney to buy the brand new MG5.
The Australian adaptation will be a sedan with power coming from a 1.5-litre engine created by MG’s parent organization SAIC, including an 89kW normally suctioned variant and a punchier 129kW super. This 1.5-litre non-turbo would put the MG 5 well behind the small sedan class on power and force as the Toyota Corolla is 125kW/200Nm. However, the remaining parts hypothesis that is yet to be confirmed.
The size would be 1842mm wide, 4675mm long and 1473mm high (with a 2680mm wheelbase). It’s probably going to be classed as an average size car when it shows up in Australia as much as the same way as a Toyota Corolla. The aspects make it 45mm longer and 82mm wider than the Corolla or 14mm shorter in overall length.
