MG Roadster may return as convertible crossover
MG may resurrect an icon, but this time as an drop-top crossover.
Auto Express is reporting out of the United Kingdom that MG will bring back the MG Roadster based on the MG Icon concept first shown in China last year. That four-passenger hard top SUV was tall in drive height and short on details when it was shown, though it was supposed to pay homage to the MGA and MGB GT.
The Roadster, along with the hard top model, will likely arrive in 2015, Auto Express reports. Like the hard top, the convertible would offer a modern interpretation of the MGB with key styling cues such as the long hood, octagon emblem and distinctive styling.
Auto Express says that the Roadster would have a starting price of around 14,000 pounds or $21,800, though any reliable details are going to be hard to come by until this rumor finds some firmer ground.
