2010 MG 6 – Click above for high-res image gallery

The last new MG was the MGF sportscar way back in 1995, and oh, what a difference 14 years makes. The MG6 is the first new MG by the company's new owner, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. (SAIC), and they've chosen a four-door liftback for their coming out party. About the size of a VW Golk/Skoda Octavia, the MG6 will be powered by either a naturally aspirated 1.8-litre four-cylinder with 133 brake horsepower and 135 pound-feet of torque, or a turbocharged 1.8-liter with 160 bhp and 158 lb-ft. Shifting is said to be via five-speed automatic.

The MG 6 will go on sale in China first, but it has reportedly been engineered to meet global safety standards and is expected to be exported. SAIC hasn't given any numbers or even locations for export yet, but the company president said they plan to produce it in the UK by the end of next year.

      VW Golk, awesome, that must be a Euro only model. Oh wait, the autoblog editors missed another one. Does anyone proof read blog posts?

        "About the size of a VW Golk/Skoda Octavia.."

        A VW Gulp typo sounds better.

        Are you high? Not even close. There is nothing being produced today that is more hideous than the Pious.

      I am immensely pleased to see "Morris Garages" on that plate... when the rumors popped up of them changing the acronym to "Modern Gentleman" or whatever, I nearly popped a fuse.

      Now, I love ridiculing Chinese cars that are hideous, or blatant ripoffs of Western or Japanese designs... but this is neither... it's rather unoffensive, but not too boring, either... and it doesn't appear to be whole-hog cribbed from another manufacturer's design bureau... sure it has some styling touches here and there that are similar to established cars, but in this current car industry, that happens all the time.
