NEW MG CARS AND SUVS AT MIAS 2023
At MG Central, MG Philippines will publicly launch two exciting vehicles: the 2023 MG GT Sport Sedan, and the 2023 MG ZS Nite Edition Crossover SUV.
LIVE TO DEFY: THE 2023 MG GT SPORT SEDAN
MG Philippines’ latest vehicle offering—the 2023 MG GT Sports Sedan, is sleek, sporty, stylish, and state of the art. It embodies its product tagline “Live to Defy” by offering Filipino motorists a vehicle that will challenge their notions of what a sedan can and should be. The MG GT defies the conventional idea of sedans within a similar spec and price range, flaunting impressive power figures, large exterior and interior dimensions, a comfortable cabin, advanced safety elements, and modern driver convenience features, serving a slick alternative that defies the ordinary. Overall, the MG GT offers Car-C specs and features but with a Car-B price tag, countering the commonplace notions that are usually associated with many subcompact sedans.
Underneath the hood of the MG GT Sport Sedan lies the heart of an athlete: a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that produces 161 Ps and 250 Nm of torque. This finely tuned engine gives the car quickness and agility off the line, as it propels the vehicle from 0-100kph in just 8.5 seconds. A smooth shifting, 7-speed Twin Clutch Sportronic (TST) Transmission equipped with paddle shifters ensures that every revolution of the MG GT’s spirited engine is efficient, while keeping its power band optimized.
The MG GT’s sporting qualities progress from underneath the hood to the car’s exterior, where aggressive body accent lines and a swooping fastback profile reinforce its athletic stance. Up front, a 3D Digital Flaming Grille is bordered by full LED headlights and daytime running lamps, defining the car’s sporty front fascia. At the rear, bright, highly-visible 3D LED Racetrack Taillamps cut through the darkness, a ducktail accent on the trunk adds a premium touch, and a split tailpipe give the car an energetic finishing note.
The MG GT Sport Sedan comes in two variants: the naturally aspirated Alpha variant, and the Turbocharged sport variant. See below for the MSRP of these exciting vehicles:
MG GT 1.5L Alpha - MSRP P1,015,888.00
MG GT 1.5T Sport - MSRP P1,193,888.00
CROSSOVER TO THE NITE: MG ZS CROSSOVER SUV NITE EDITION
The MG ZS Crossover SUV is MG Philippines’ best-selling model, consistently taking the lion’s share of the yearly sales volume for the brand. A combination of stylish, good looks, cabin space, a fuel efficient engine, and an unbeatable value proposition have endeared many Filipinos to the ZS, as one might notice with the growing number of these crossover SUVs plying our streets.
To further up the ante and introduce even more value to this already loaded package, MG Philippines introduces the new ZS Nite Edition: a model refresh that offers a bold and sporty take on a fan favorite that is even more feature-packed, so you get more bang for your buck.
The ZS Nite Edition takes its name from the numerous blacked-out accents on its exterior, including a newly-colored Stardust Grille, trim, and alloy wheels. The dark accents contribute to the car’s already sporty appeal, giving it a more edgy look that looks good whether day or night.
Aside from exterior upgrades, the ZS Nite Edition also features new tech enhancements such as a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto; a reversing camera; 6 cabin speakers for a full sound experience; and a power liftgate to give you easy access to the vehicle’s cavernous trunk.
The ZS Crossover SUV Nite Edition is a standalone variant. See below for the MSRP of this exciting vehicle:
ZS Nite Edition 1.5AT - MSRP P1,018,888.00
