MG Motor has showcased its first sedan for our market at the Auto Expo 2020. Called MG RC 6, the new sedan is expected to be a fresh and attractive staple in the market.
MG Motor is bringing in a flux of new vehicles to the 2020 Auto Expo. One of the most talked-about displayed models is the new RC 6 sedan. Developed from the Baojun RC6 sedan which is on sale in the Chinese market, the MG RC 6 is a unique combination of a sedan, coupe and an SUV.
To the side profile, MG RC 6 seems to get the inspiration from the BMW 3 Series GT with the sloping silhouette toward the rear end, which showcases a cross between a sedan and coupe design. Along with the coupe-like sloping roofline, the MG RC 6 also gets a distinctively ground clearance of 198 mm, gaining an impressive road presence for a sedan. With such a high stance, the MG RC 6 shows resemblance to an SUV. Altogether, MG RC 6 demonstrates a unique mix of both sedan, coupe and SUV design.
Regarding the dimensions, the RC 6 sedan measures 4,925mm long and its wheelbase stands at 2,800 mm. Compared to other sedans in the market, the MG RC 6 clearly gets some advantages.
In line with other design from the British car manufacturer, the RC 6 carries various shiny chrome bits along its body, especially on the front grille. On the insides, the bling factor will be toned down to a more conventional design. However, the highlight of the interior lies in the dual-screen interface with one touchscreen for the infotainment system and the other for the instrument cluster. It is expected to go big on the connectivity features just like other previous MG models.
Under the hood, the MG RC 6 will keep a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine which is currently powering the MG Hector. This petrol engine will come with a mild-hybrid version along with a 2.0-litre diesel engine.
Reportedly, the new MC RC 6 is likely to hit the market by March 2021. The sedan will be priced competitively. Based on the feedback gained from the Auto Expo 2020, MG Motor will give some final touches to the RC 6’s interior before officially going on sale.
