A New MG Sports Car is Coming

Rumor / Comments

Unfortunately, there's a catch.

MG fans weren't the happiest bunch when the brand name was sold to Chinese automaker SAIC back in 2005. Since then, that classic range of two seater sports cars has been entirely replaced with sedans and hatchbacks. In other words, today's MG shares only its name and logo with the MG of yesteryear. However, there's word coming now that MG is working on a new coupe that could be called the MG 4. It could share a platform with the MG 5 hatchback along with its 1.5-liter engine.

It's also possible a 1.8-liter turbocharged unit could be offered. As of now there's no talk of a potential convertible variant. However, and this is a major however, this MG coupe may not even be sold in mainland Europe or the UK. The US? Nope, MG has no plans to go to North America. So where could this revived MG sports car go on sale? Yep, you guessed it: China, and China only. Apparently MG's current owners don't have the balls to take on the Mazda MX-5 after all.
