MG GS SUV Prototype Spied

The prototype of the MG GS SUV has been spied on the road recently in the UK. The new 5-seat SUV, scheduled to go on sale in 2016, was seen undergoing road trials in Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire. This will be the first time in the company’s history that MG has entered the hotly contested SUV market.

Reports on sightings fo the prototype have come from both AutoExpress and AutoCar. The most recent photos captured show the prototype SUV with far less camouflage to disguise its appearance.

The production version of the GS was styled under the stewardship of MG design boss Anthony Williams-Kenny, in a collaboration between the company’s Shanghai and Longbridge design teams.

The first-ever MG SUV adheres closely to the look of the well-received CS concept, with a highly contemporary look featuring a clear family resemblance to the recently introduced MG3, MG5 and MG6.

The production GS is expected to be unveiled fully at next year’s Geneva Motor Show in March, and will go on sale soon after that priced from around £14,000. The smaller Juke rival, unnamed as yet, won’t be seen until 2017.
