Is this confirmed for the UK now Miles? Thought that and the ZS facelift were Europe only?

It's a shame there is no towing homologation, could've tempted me away from a Skoda Enyaq!

Long range has come a bit late, MG5 was on my list of possibles, but it lost out to an E-Niro a few months ago

Good that they’ve got the active safety features in now, but it really should have launched like that.

It’s a great value deal with a lot space, it’s just a pity you have put up with 20 year old Asian eco car looks as punishment for that.

Badly needs that facelift.

Well that'll put off prospective owners, all the current ones seems to claim "I didn't want any features where the car tried to drive for me, i'm a better driver than all other motorists!" :ROFLMAO:

It's got the same face as a 2014 VW Passat.

Check your prejudices.

I didn't know car predjuce was a thing...

I see lots of comments saying that, but other than a stripey chrome grill, for me, it just isn't anything like it. The Passat actually has decent proportions and is generally just much more modern and fresh looking. The MG5 is just badly proportioned and has a real whiff of a generic Korean car from almost 20 years ago.

What's really puzzling about it, is that in Chinese market the latest MG6 is a great looking, fresh car. It's almost like they are palming off the older stuff to the UK market.

It looks so generic and bland that you could pretty much argue any sort of unambitious design over years had some similarities. That's the point really. You could use Goggle Image search I'm sure...

Asian, Korean, "any sort of unambitious design".

So a Passat then!
