Title: SAIC MG6 Saloon to enter British market in 2011
Post by: amgba on January 12, 2011, 11:40:07 PM
The MG6 Saloon will enter the British market in 2011, and be delivered to MG dealers in China at the end of November or early December this year, Mr. Chen Zhixin, Executive Vice President of SAIC Motor and General Manager of SAIC Motor Passenger Vehicle Co., said on October 18 at the UK Pavilion of Shanghai Expo, wccdaily.com reported Thursday.

Together with Ms. Carma Elliot, Consul General of the United Kingdom (UK) in Shanghai, Mr. Chen Zhixin unveiled the MG6 Saloon (sedan) at the UK Pavilion on the same day, saying that six Saloon models featuring 1.8L and 1.8DVVT engine will be available in the domestic market.

The MG6 Saloon with a 5-speed manual or Tiptronic automatic transmission measures (LxWxH) 4653mm x 1827mm x 1480mm and has a wheelbase of 2750mm (much longer than same-class models). The 1557mm front track and 1555mm rear track offers the Saloon more inner space and makes it look more practical and steadier- and thus more suitable for family use.

Adhering to a sporty look of the MG models, the MG6 Saloon resembles both the MGFastback hatchback and Roewe 550 and is well positioned to meet the vitality, fashion and personality requirements of the consumers.
