The MG GT looks like a fastback but is in fact a sporty sedan based on the same platform as the MG5 hatchback and the Roewe 350 sedan.

At launch the MG Gt will only be available with a new GM-sourced 1.4 turbo with 156hp and 235nm, mated to a equally new seven-speed DCT. In 2015 the well-known and much cheaper 109hp 1.5 and 129hp 1.5 turbo will join the line-up.

The MG GT will be exported to the U.K. starting in Q1 2015 but only with the 1.4 turbo under the bonnet. No word yet about a diesel.

Size: 612mm/1804mm/1488mm, wheelbase is 2650.
