    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 isn't known for crossovers and sedans like it sells today under its Chinese owner SAIC. The British brand is best remembered for spritely roadsters of the 20th century, and according to MG, the brand will return to its roots.

  • MG E-Motion concept, 2017 Shanghai auto show

    Remember MG? The British brand known for its spritely roadsters has long been out of the Brits' hands, as it's been owned by Shanghai, China-based SAIC Motor since 2006. Since then, we're sad to say, MG's offerings have been a far cry from what the brand was always known for. Things may be starting to change, however, as MG has unveiled a handsome sports car concept ahead of the debut on Wednesday at the 2017 Shanghai auto show. Unlike MG's mainstream MG3 and GS on sale today, the E-Motion boasts swoopy, crisp lines and promises to deliver serious performance from an electric powertrain; MG...

    MG returning to its roots, developing 2-seat roadster

    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...

    MG Shows Off MG3 Trophy Hot Hatch Concept

    It's probably fair to say that the last few decades haven't been great for the MG brand. Perhaps with cars like the MG3 Trophy Concept the once-famous British sports car brand has a brighter future ahead of it. The MG3 Trophy is quite appropriate for the brand's more recent history, in fact, since...

    MG Unveils Sporty Crossover, Subcompact At Shanghai Auto Show

    The classic MGB sports car nailed the formula for affordable fun back in the 1960s and 1970s, but the decades weren't kind to it, nor eventual owners of the MG name, MG Rover.

  • MG's Icon crossover concept.

    The Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet, in the eyes of critics, is the answer to a question that absolutely no one is asking. The topless crossover is plagued by funky looks and a more-than-slightly-ambitious sticker price, which begs the question, “could a more attractive and reasonably priced convertible crossover be a hit?” If Auto Express is correct, we may soon find out. Word is that MG is looking at a roadster version of its Icon crossover concept, shown at this year’s Beijing Auto Show. That doesn’t mean that the hard top version is off the table, and instead MG is...

    The term “barn find” generally applies to cars found in barns, garages and outbuildings, not buried beneath them. Necessity is the mother of invention, though, prompting one doting MG 14/40 Mk IV owner to dismantle his car and bury it beneath a newly-constructed cowshed, rather than...

    First New MG Model In 16 Years Goes Into Production In England

    The long, sad, failure-ridden story of what used to be England's auto industry has filled many books, and drained many pints of both ale and oil.

    A few years back there was a flood of news about MG planning a raft of new models together with its Chinese parent company Shanghai Automotive (SAIC).
