MG has evolved its Icon Concept presented in China last year, with a new urban SUV concept set to debut at next week’s Shanghai Auto Show.
Last year, MG arrived at the Beijing Motor Show with its Icon crossover concept that, although was well received, needed to be toned down if putting into production was under serious consideration. With the Chinese-owned marque attempting to take advantage of its buoyant home market, MG will unveil its CS Concept at the Shanghai show next week, which it hopes will attract fans of the Nissan Juke and its funky crossover ilk. From these solitary images, the MG CS Concept appears to have coupe-like crossover stylings with large wheels and a plunging roofline.
The Icon’s MGB GT-inspired nose has gone, as has its suicide doors, and overall the concept looks a lot closer to being production ready with its mainstream-looking twin tailpipes and rear diffuser. There’s no mention of powerplants or when MG will put the MG 5-based crossover into production, but more information is anticipated in the coming days.
