MG has confirmed the CS "urban SUV concept" will be presented next week at 2013 Auto Shanghai, following a leak several days ago.

It will serve as a preview for the firm's first production SUV and will be showcased on April 20. Its styling is the work of a design team led by MG's global design director Anthony Williams-Kenny. The headlights are described as having a "multi-faceted shard structure which refract light in different colors and shape from the side."

Other details are not known at the moment but the CS should be an evolution of last year's Icon concept revealed in Beijing. Chances are it rides on the MG5's platform and is powered by a 4-cylinder, 1.5-liter turbo gasoline engine rated at approximately 135 bhp (101 kW).
