  • 2018 Facelift

    So what do we all think of the 2018 Facelift?

    This is the most significant facelift since the original Chinese spec got a make over to the 'Euro' look back in 2013

    The changes at the front are obvious, gaining the new family look first shown on the MG 'ZS' SUV in China at the start of the year.

    Internally, the coonsole looks the same, but the seats are different. This might be a case of Chinese / Thai spec seats just being fitted to the mule

    Interestingly, the door cards are covered over, so they may be hiding some updates.

    This car is without the 'Sport' bodykit, but that may not be reflected in the final version. The rear boot handle being deleted seems the most obvious change, with the new finger-gap now recessed into the bumper.

    The keenly eyed may notice that the rear glass has changed shape and the metal work of the bootlid has been changed to emphasise the crease.

    Perhaps the change to annoy people the most, seems to be the deletion of the rear wiper, as per the MG6 facelift a few years back, which also saw some cost cutting exercises.

    The light clusters are also different, loosing the vertical white strip, but this may just be an adaption of the Chinese spec lights from the original MG3. The reverse light lens is now clear/white, which could help the poor lighting while reversing at night.

    It's possible that the rear diffuser has been updated, but the poor picture quality makes it difficult to tell.

    There's an MG 'ZS' SUV steering wheel being fitted here, but largely the dash seems unaltered for now. The centre console and door cards are covered over, so we may see some updates, but I expect they will be minor.
