MG has teased a new model which will sit at the top of its range. The new MG7 ICE-powered flagship sedan is set to debut on August 17 in China as the first product from the Black Label series.
From the profile, the MG7 adopts a low-slung fastback silhouette, similar to the Audi A7. The body is quite muscular with strong dynamic lines and pronounced rear shoulders. At the front, the LED headlights are slimmer and more aggressive than anything we have seen from the brand to date, with the large grille and side intakes looking similar to the MG Cyberster concept. The rear end has full-width LED lights, an integrated ducktail spoiler with active aerodynamics, plus quad exhaust pipes showing its ICE-powered nature.
In the teasers published on Weibo, MG didn’t reveal many details about the model but confirmed it would be available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. As reported by Car News China, the pictured 405 VTGI Trophy variant will produce 254 hp (189 kW / 257 PS) and 405 Nm of torque, with the 2.0-liter engine mated to a nine-speed ZF automatic. There will also be a lesser 300 VTGI variant with a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine from the smaller MG6 producing 183 hp (136 kW / 185 PS) and 300 Nm of torque, mated to a seven-speed DCT auto. Finally, more powerful plug-in hybrid variants are expected in mid-2023.
