MG has released the first teaser image of the Euro-spec GS crossover. Set to debut at the London Motor Show in May, the model was previewed by the CS concept and should be virtually identical to the Chinese-spec model that was introduced at 2015 Shanghai Motor Show. As a result, we can expect an angular front fascia with a slender grille and sweptback headlights. The model should also have plastic body cladding, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, and a dual exhaust system.

MG has released the first teaser image of the Euro-spec GS crossover.

Set to debut at the London Motor Show in May, the model was previewed by the CS concept and should be virtually identical to the Chinese-spec model that was introduced at 2015 Shanghai Motor Show.  As a result, we can expect the model will have an angular front fascia with a slender grille and sweptback headlights.  The crossover should also have plastic body cladding, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, and a dual exhaust system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but the Chinese-spec model can be equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that develops 165 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.  Customers can also order a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with 217 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.  Depending on which engine is selected, it can be connected to a six-speed manual, a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.  Front-wheel drive is standard but all-wheel drive is optional.

The GS is being billed as a "real turning point" in the company's history and MG Deputy Design Director Martin Uhlarik remarked “We truly believe that we have created a competitive car that shows MG as forward-thinking, consumer-conscious and a great producer of cars that can appeal to anyone at any point in their life.”

The MG GS will go on sale in June and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
