Have you noticed just how many MG’s are on the road these days? Manufactured in Rayong as a joint venture between SAIC (China) and CP (Thailand) the new MG’s are starting to grow on me (like a skin rash). The smaller MG3 looks too much like all the other eco cars, but the MG5 impressed me at the Bangkok International Motor Show and has started to appear on our local roads in appreciable numbers.
Unfortunately for SAIC/CP, the name MG conjures up two seater sports cars and not four place sedans. However, it is now many years since MG produced a real sports car and we should just be thankful that SAIC have kept the nameplate going.
