MG is working on a hatchback based on the new Roewe 350, the project is code named AP12 and the new car will debut at the end of 2011. Price will start around 100.000 yuan, in line with the 350. The AP12 will be MG’s second hatch after the MG6, which is based on the Roewe 550. (The poor photoshop is my work…)
