(Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 18th December 2017) MG Motor has launched its new compact SUV MG RX5 in the Middle East. Revealed at this year’s Saudi International Motor Show (17th-21st December), MG RX5 will go on sale across the region from January 2018, marking the latest exciting stage in the rejuvenation of the famous brand.
Speaking at its show reveal in Jeddah, Mr. Tom Lee, Managing Director of SAIC Motor Middle East, the parent company of MG Motor, said: “The MG RX5 is the latest model to join MG’s exciting range of cutting-edge vehicles, and embodies the positive, new direction this famous brand is taking. As MG strengthens its on-the-ground presence across the Middle East, we believe that this new compact SUV possesses all the attributes to push the brand to the front of mind of the region’s car buyers.”
The MG RX5 boasts an attractive, futuristic design that is instantly recognisable, notably at the front where the stylish square LED headlamps, imposing wing-shaped grille and innovative foglamps endow it with real on-the-road presence. Sporty five-spoke, two-tone 18” rims combine with a sharp waistline that rises from front to rear, enhancing the dynamic look. At the rear, a chrome plate stretches out to the dual tail lights, significantly extending the vehicle.
