The newly revamped MG RX5 is so stylish, with an even more appealing sleek look. You will fall for the top-quality well-crafted and brand-new interior brimming with new technology and safety features.

Fall in love with the brand-new 3D geometric grille that will turn heads. The slender waistline seamlessly connects the front and rear and extends the visual length of the car while the strong shoulder line creates a powerful posture. While firmly planted on the road, with the larger and more sporty front grille, together with LED headlights and daytime running lights, the new design makes the RX5 look like it’s going fast, even when standing still.

Powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, you can really enjoy your driving as you hit the road and feel 171 hp and 275 Nm of torque come alive under your right foot. Zero to 100 kph in around nine seconds is great for what is also a family SUV. Top speed is 190 kph but you can also enjoy driving in congested city streets or a relaxing journey on the highway with the cruise control that is fitted as standard.

Comfortable interiors

The designers at MG wanted to create a truly natural and comfortable cabin space. The interior cabin is padded with soft materials and aesthetics to deliver 360° comfort for the driver and all passengers. The ergonomic gear lever wouldn’t look out of place in a spacecraft, while the central armrest is level with the door armrests ensuring a design more akin to that of a comfy sofa. There are plenty of storage spaces which makes every trip in the RX5 a little bit more convenient.

From the moment you sit inside the newly enhanced cabin, on the supportive luxurious seats, it becomes a difficult place to leave. You can admire the entirely new dashboard design, and navigate through a plethora of features on the new 14.1” tablet-inspired touchscreen display, as well as a 12.3” fully digital navigation cluster right in front of the driver. The standard cruise control, push-button ignition, keyless entry, rearview camera and 360° park view camera all give the driver full control and peace of mind. The impressive specification levels include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and GPS navigation

Last but not least, no matter where you’re heading in your MG RX5, it has everything needed to keep you and your passengers safe, thanks to front and side airbags, and six airbags including two curtain airbags available with the top trim.

Eight safety functions

RX5 sits firmly on the road with an upgraded suspension that has optimised top bracket stiffness and high-grade shock absorbers to eliminate excess shaking, vibration, shocks, and rattles. Feel confident with the 65% high-strength steel cage body structure that can minimise the impact and excess energy from any collision.

When navigating those tight spots in the city, do so with complete ease, with a full 360° parking camera and surrounding parking sensors. The standard Electronic Stability Programme includes eight safety functions such as the ABS, EBD, EBA, ARP, CBC HDC, TCS and BDW, enhancing driving stability in extreme road or traffic conditions.

So, you are allowed to fall in love with its sleek looks every time you lay your eyes on the MG RX5. Combined with a wide variety of advanced tech and safety features, the RX5 makes driving an absolute pleasure.
