    MG, the storied British marque best known here in the United States for its tiny sports cars, is now part of China's SAIC, and sports cars aren't the plan moving forward. Instead, MG now sees itself as a mainstream brand with stylish vehicles not unlike those offered by Mazda or Volkswagen. Our latest spy shots show an upcoming MG crossover SUV. It's a small crossover whose styling was previewed by the X-Motion concept car, unveiled at the 2018 Beijing auto show last April. The lines of the production version stay close to the concept, though finer details like the lights and fascias have...

  • MG TF

    For a whole generation of drivers, the name MG conjures images of two-seat British roadsters. They might not have worked every day and leaked like a colander when it rained, but when they worked they were a load of fun. MG might finally be returning to those days, with rumors that the now Chinese-owned company is working on another two-seat roadster. Auto Express describes the car as a spiritual successor to the MG TF, a mid-engined sports car sold in the 1990s and 2000s that for a time out-sold the Mazda Miata in the U.K. Speaking to the British magazine, an insider confirmed that MG bosses...

  • MG's Icon crossover concept.

    While MG may not have returned to its former glory under Chinese ownership, the brand appears to be both healthy and eyeing future market growth, as evidenced by a new compact crossover concept to be shown at the Beijing Auto Show. Called the Icon, the concept bears a striking resemblance to the MGB GT, a tiny hatchback that enjoyed reasonable sales on both sides of the Atlantic in the late 1960s and 1970s. Seen as a practical-but-sporty alternative to the MGB roadster, the GT offered up four (small) seats, a versatile rear hatch and all-weather comfort. The Icon is said to represent a...
