British brand, Chinese manufacturer and digital cockpit — MG crossover


The British brand belonging to the Chinese concern SAIC was still in the summer of the One model, which should be the main weapon to capture the European market. But all the details became known only now.

In August, the Chinese pleased the public with spectacular design exterior

If the external appearance of One many features resembles a larger MG Pilot, then the novelty is indigenously different from it, and from the minivan Roewe IMAX8, which has borrowed a crossover a promising SIGMA platform (SAIC Intelligence Global Modular Architecture).

The main decoration of the interior, almost devoid of physical buttons, in accordance with the modern fashion, is a glass panel with a diagonal of 30 inches. It combines a 12.3-inch instrument panel, a multimedia screen of the same size, a little turned to the driver, and the touchscreen to the left of the steering wheel to control the light, mirrors and some other features.

The steering wheel itself is also not quite ordinary: his rim is hidden around the chore not only from below, which is often found, but on top, and under the right spin there is a button, one of the few, with the inscription Super Sport. The decision is clearly highlighted from the car of the Spanish brand Cupra, and even outward One great reminds the crossover

Alas, real sportiness here is not so much: under the hood — 1,5-liter turbo engine of the MEGA TECH series with a capacity of 181 hp It is aggregated not with a robotic gearbox, as it was assumed earlier, and with the variator, and this tandem accelerates the car to 100 km / h per 8.4 seconds. It is noteworthy that the exact same passport speaker has a 150-strong crossover

From other details you can mark the wheels with a landing diameter of 18 or 19 inches, a relatively modest trunk (336 liters) and autopilot of the second level. In addition, in the rich list of basic equipment — the engine start button, leather seats with electric drive ahead, panoramic roof and decent Yamaha acoustics. Perhaps, for other markets, the configuration will be revised, because while the crossover is available exclusively in China at prices from 17,000 translated into dollars.

And what else
