With its new seven-seater RX8, MG is trying to enter a class where it has never been before. Distinguished by the larger wheelbase and the widest third-row space available in its class, and thanks to its strength and spaciousness, this vehicle directly bookings a unique position from its competition.
The new MG RX8 is another major step in the re-emergence of the British-born auto brand, which is changing perceptions among new car customers around the region thanks to its highly advanced and well-equipped model range of sedans and SUVs.
The robust yet simple design of the new RX8 puts it at a distance from competitors. From the front, the vehicle shines through a dual-engine hood, a silver bottom lip, a sleek chrome grille and LED fog lights in a matrix pattern, all of which make an impression. The majestic presence and smooth body lines are complemented by signature features such as chrome twin tailpipes, LED taillights, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights as well, and 20-inch aluminum wheels depending on the trim. A choice of six exterior colors is available.
Inside, the MG RX8 reinforces the brand’s reputation for providing premium finishes at regular prices. The use of a selection of the finest materials, including longitudinal wood, chrome and soft-touch cladding, gives the RX8 a very sophisticated feel.
Customers can choose from three attractive interior color schemes. MG has also partnered with German company Bader, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium leather in the automotive sector. In addition to this, the LUX equipment category is equipped with ventilated seats to ensure that passengers enjoy the best travel experience and nothing else.
The RX8 is powered by an efficient 2.0-liter petrol turbocharged engine that delivers 220 horsepower. The engine incorporates Net Blue Technology and generates a maximum torque of 360 Nm. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifting.
The MG RX8 includes a wide range of standard safety features such as front, side and curtain airbags, front and rear sensors with a rear view camera, Active Rollover Protection and Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Additional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems – ADAS, such as the Lane Departure Warning System, appear on the LUX model.
