MG Icon SUV concept drawings leaked
China Car Times has today published official drawings of
the new MG Icon SUV concept. Details are limited at this stage, but the concept
is based on the MG5/Roewe 350 floor plan. It is understood that it will be
powered by a new 1.5li turbo engine, at least for the China market.
The first 4 pictures below have been taken from the China Car forum thread on the subject. More images are available in this Image Gallery.
Here is a discussion on the MG-Rover.org forums. Predictably, some love it and others absolutely loath it.
What do you think? Send comments to me at email@example.com and I will include them on this page. Without your name, if that is what you want.
