Like the iconic British sports car used to zip and zoom around in the past, the new MG is overtaking many models in the Qatar car market. You can judge the best of the attractive new range of models by taking the versatile RX5 for a test drive at Auto Class Cars, exclusive agent on Salwa Road. They will also offer you amazing deals.
A great combination of sporty elegance and practical design, the new RX5 is a versatile and capable SUV that incorporates some of the latest automotive technology available. Intelligent and spacious, comfortable and stylish, the all-new MG RX5 is exciting to experience; there are five trim levels available with ever-more choice in technology the further up the range you go.
The new MG RX5 comes with the option of two engines. The first, a 2.0 Turbo delivering 350 Nm of torque and 221 hp, races from 0–100 kph in only 8.2 seconds; the second, a 1.5 engine with 169 hp and 250 Nm of torque, returns impressive fuel economy of only 6.8 litres per 100 km. Take your pick depending on your requirements – performance or consumption – and discover how MG can do both very well.
A clever remote smart application will allow the driver to operate vehicle functions such as remote start and stop air conditioning, vehicle tracking and aftersales appointments. It even reminds owners of the services needed for the car. Appealing to the hi-tech generation, there is a 10.4” high-definition infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Navigation on the COM and LUX versions and an 8” colour navigation system for STD models.
Even the entry-level model has the comprehensive equipment levels of the MG line-up. Owners benefit from automatic air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, cruise control, multi-adjustable front seats, and a remote boot opening function as standard. When it comes to safety, ABS, EBD, Auto Hold, a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Hill Descent Control are all included.
Drivers of the top-of-the-range models are really spoilt, with electric folding wing mirrors, LED headlamps, electrically-adjustable driver’s seat, more airbags, and a huge panoramic sunroof with anti-trap mechanism all standard, as is MG’s smart All-Wheel Drive system.
ENGINE 2.0 Turbo (also available 1.5 Turbo)
MAX POWER 221 hp (84 kW)
MAX TORQUE 350 Nm (111 lb-ft)
TRANSMISSION Intelligent Aisin four-speed automatic plus manual mode gives smooth changes.
EXTERIOR With a sporty SUV aesthetic, the RX5 will catch the attention of car watchers everywhere. Subtle chrome finishes, quality paintwork, and a distinctive front grille with the iconic MG logo embedded in the centre all ensure it looks like a model with exceptional capability. And so it is. Violin-style curtain tail-lights and LED daytime running lights are both smart and elegant in appearance, so there’s no doubting the appeal of the MG RX5.
INTERIOR A cavernous interior is both comfortable and flexible. Adjustable and fold-flat seating in two-tone leather quickly and simply free up more boot space for weekend adventures. With more than enough room for five, the panoramic sunroof accentuates the sense of interior space while powerful air conditioning creates the perfect climate. The driver-centric dashboard, featuring an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation, as well as the intelligent one-touch rear hatch, are further design measures that demonstrate the carefully considered attributes of this contemporary model.
SAFETY/SECURITY Front, side airbags; three-point seatbelts; ABS, EBD, traction control; keyless operation; disc brakes all round; rear camera and parking sensors; high strength reinforced body.
