When it comes to buying a car, you can never have too many options to consider. MG Philippines knows this, and as such, it is expanding its local subcompact sedan lineup with the addition of the MG 5 Core Plus.

The MG 5 Core Plus, with a P748,888 price tag, now sits in the middle of the model range. Under its hood is a 1.5-liter gasoline engine capable of up to 112hp and 150Nm of torque mated to a continuously variable transmission.

Despite the affordable price, the MG 5 Core Plus comes equipped with a handful of notable convenience features and tech. This includes cruise control, a tire pressure monitoring system, a reversing camera, and a neat 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The cabin also boasts two additional speakers for an improved entertainment experience.
