(25th October 2021, Kuwait) MG Adel Alghanim has introduced the new MG GT, reflecting the British-born brand’s commitment to diversify its line-up by unveiling a sporty new model. The new MG GT offers Kuwait car buyers a fresh new alternative in the sedan sector, with its aggressive sporty looks and 1.5L and 1.5T powertrains for optimum power and performance,
The MG GT, which is inspired by the classic two-door MGB sports car, is the third sedan to join MG’s growing line-up of cost-efficient and high-value-for-money cars. With the brand’s focus on younger buyers, as demonstrated by its “Do More” campaign, the MG GT is set to resonate strongly with this demographic, reflecting their independence, aspirations and passion.
The new 1.5T MG GT is equipped with a highly-efficient four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which delivers maximum horsepower of 173 PS and 275N.m maximum torque to accelerate the car from 0-100 km/h in 8 seconds, and comes in two trims: COM and LUX. The 1.5L model is equipped with a fourth-generation, fuel efficient. Both models are equipped with an 8-speed intelligent iCVT gearbox and XDS curve dynamic control system, which adds to the driving experience. The dynamic performance is further assisted by the sports chassis, which is of aerospace-grade aluminum and has a compact structure, resulting in high driving comfort and stronger handling stability.
The new GT is the brand’s first sports sedan to feature the third generation of its family design language. A large ‘Digital Flaming Grille’ is separated from the narrow, LED headlights, enhancing the powerful and dynamic presence. Complementing the strong downward-pressing bonnet, at the rear the MG GT features a slightly upturned ducktail, which reinforces the sporty look. An end-to-end chrome line along with the wide shoulder of the car, and optional tomahawk alloy wheels, add to the premium look and feel.
The dynamic look and feel is reflected in the interior, which is available in contrasting red or black. The seats’ structure adopts a design layout that considers and takes into account the principles of ergonomics, providing optimal comfort for the driver and better support for the body. A large 10” touch screen is fitted as standard, as is a remote boot opening function,
Befitting MG’s reputation for offering great value, the new MG GT is well-equipped with a range of technologies that reflect MG’s forward-thinking approach.
