An undisguised pre-production 2014 MG5 sedan was photographed somewhere in China ahead of this year's launch.

About a year ago there was a rumor concerning a new MG5 sedan and it turns out the report was true as we are looking at the 2014 MG5 sedan. It's not your everyday sedan as it comes with an almost fastback-like rear-end featuring a high-positioned trunk which likely has a negative effect on visibility. Those taillights send out a bit of a Mazda6 sedan vibe and are interconnected by a red bar.

It uses the same platform as the MG5 hatchback and Roewe 350 sedan so expect the engine lineup to include a 1.5-liter with 109 bhp (81 kW) and a 1.5-liter turbo with 129 bhp (96 kW). An official reveal is scheduled for September at the Chengdu Auto Show, with sales to commence a month later. Prices should start at around 120,000 yuan and go up to 150,000 yuan.
