Inspired by the classic 1962 two-door MGB GT sports car, the all-new MG GT is a coupe-like fast back sedan to join MG’s growing line-up of cost-efficient and high-value-for-money cars. We drove a bright yellow all-new MG GT with fresh, dynamic looks and a fighter jet inspired cabin that delivered its promise of a thrilling drive experience.
Embracing MG’s latest design ethos, the all-new MG GT reflects the British-born brand’s commitment to diversify its line-up by unveiling a sporty new model. The all-new MG GT offers car buyers a fresh new alternative in the sedan sector, with its aggressive sporty looks and 1.5L and 1.5T powertrains for optimum power and performance.
The drive experience is great for young adults who strive to own a powerful sedan that meets their aspirations and want to feed their rebelliousness and daring mindset.
A large ‘Digital Flaming Grille’ is separated from the narrow, LED headlights, enhancing the powerful and dynamic presence of the car.
Complementing the strong downward-pressing bonnet, at the rear the all-new MG GT features a slightly upturned ducktail, which reinforces the sporty look. An end-to-end chrome line along with the wide shoulder of the car, and optional tomahawk alloy wheels add to the premium look and feel.
The dynamic look and feel is reflected in the interior, available in contrasting red or black. The seats’ structure adopts a design layout that considers and takes into account the principles of ergonomics, providing optimal comfort for the driver and better support for the body.
A large 10” touch screen is fitted as standard, with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, enabling the drivers to seamlessly use their smartphones with the car. Offering great value, the all-new MG GT is well-equipped with a wide range of technologies that reflect MG’s forward-thinking approach.
The MG GT also comes with a body electronic stability control system, and a PDC rear reversing radar, as well as MG Pilot intelligent driving assistance system, a 360° view monitoring system, cruise control and forward collision warning among other features.
The all-new 1.5T MG GT is equipped with a highly-efficient four-cylinder turbocharged engine and a DCT gearbox, which delivers maximum horsepower of 173 PS and 250N.m maximum torque to accelerate the car from 0-100 km/h in 8 seconds. The 1.5L model is equipped with a fourth-generation, fuel efficient, 118 PS 1.5L engine and an iCVT gearbox. Both models are equipped with an XDS curve dynamic control system, which adds to the driving experience.
The dynamic performance is further assisted by the sports chassis, which is of aerospace-grade aluminum and has a compact structure, resulting in high driving comfort and stronger handling stability.
Overall, the all-new MG GT exceeded all our drive expectations and is a beautifully designed, well-equipped car that is perfect for young buyers who are looking for a cost-efficient, sporty car that delivers strong performance and provides them with an exciting driving experience.
