The all-new MG7 sedan has just break covers in its home market of China. The new flagship sedan which will reside at the top of MG’s model range is the first product from its new Black Label series which is targeted toward young consumers.
Wearing black trim and black MG badges, the Black Label refers to a line of new high-end vehicles with added luxury and sportiness compared to the regular MG lineup. Measuring 4,884 mm long, 1,889 mm wide and 1,447 mm tall with a 2,778 mm wheelbase, the new MG7 adopts a low-slung fastback silhouette, depicting a muscular body 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, flanked by large grille and side intakes. The rear end has full-width LED lights, an integrated duck-tail spoiler with active aerodynamics. The MG7 features interesting design elements such as frame-less doors, star-shaped matte gray rims with red brake calipers, racy lips and quad exhausts.
Inside there is a stylish dashboard with 33-inch integrated display screen and a 14-speaker BOSE audio system, a flat-bottomed multi-function steering wheel that is wrapped in perforated leather, a chunky gear lever, sporty seats, ambient lighting and panoramic roof. The interior is available in two color themes– red and green.
MG7 sedan is available in two versions. The 405 VTGI Trophy version is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged engine delivering 257 hp of power and staggering 405 Nm of torque. This engine comes paired to a 9-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The lower variant is 300 VTGI which is powered by a 1.5L turbo engine with 185 hp and 300 Nm, and is mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox.
More powerful plug-in hybrid variants are also expected to arrive by mid-2023. The MG7 will go on sale in Chinese market towards the end of this year and is destined to be introduced in markets where ICE engine cars are still in demand.
