Following the reveal of the new electrified wagon version of the MG 5 in the UK, the carmaker has now pulled the wraps off the next-generation sedan, this time on the other side of the globe. At the 2020 Beijing Motor Show in China, to be exact.

The all-new MG 5 looks a heck of a lot sportier than its predecessor. In terms of design, it’s far from looking like an entry-level sedan.

MG didn’t release a lot of photos of the interior, but it appears the all-new 5 will see some changes here as well.

The digital instrument cluster seems to have been tweaked, too.

Unfortunately, the carmaker’s website doesn’t have the full specifications, so we still have no word what engine the new 5 will arrive with. There are some reports saying that naturally- spirated and turbocharged versions of a 1.5-liter petrol mill will be available.

What do you think of the all-new MG 5? Do you think MG Philippines should bring this in?
