MG Philippines is energizing its local lineup with the introduction of the GT. Once the vehicle arrives in January, it will no doubt be the brand’s sportiest offering to date. And with a starting price well under P1 million, the competition better take notice.
Two variants of the 2023 MG GT will be available locally: The Alpha and Sport. You can check out their prices below:
MG GT 2023
- MG GT Alpha - P938,888
- MG GT Sport - P1,098,888
The Alpha will come packing a 1.5-liter gasoline engine capable of up to 111hp and 150Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the more expensive Sport units get a 1.5-liter turbo with 159hp and 250Nm. The former has shifting duties managed by a high-speed intelligent continuously variable transmission (I-CVT), while the latter uses a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). Also worth noting is that it uses disc brakes on all four wheels.

All units share a similar feature package, though higher-end Sport units get more advanced safer bits like lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and intelligent high beams. A 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard in all MG GTs.
If you ask us, arguably the biggest draw with this model is the exterior design. It balances aggressiveness and class perfectly thanks to sleek swept-back headlights and a massive front grille surrounded by matte black plastic. The interior flaunts a stealthy vibe and gets a good mix of dark plastic and contrasting trim.
