A new digital computing design method was adopted for the all-new 2023 MG RX5 in order to develop its youthful, dynamic looks. This is most noticeable at the front, where the new, eye-catching and wide three-dimensional geometric grille is flanked by sleek, full crystal LED headlamps with C–shaped daytime running lights. The rear echoes the front, with a solid and stable stance. The new designed LED taillights inspired by High-speed Quantum Energy Block bring an impressive visual effect when illuminated and the “Twin-Aero” rear spoiler enhances the sporty image of the vehicle.
Designers of MG’s newest SUV were inspired by the intelligence and originality of home design to create a truly natural and comfortable cabin space. The aesthetically-designed cabin is padded with soft materials to ensure total comfort for occupants during their journey. The central control panel integrates a stylish, hi-tech 14.1” HD vertical touch screen, that floats up and over the redesigned dashboard. The ergonomic gear lever wouldn’t look out of place in a spacecraft, while positioning the central armrest level with the door armrests ensures an ergonomic design more akin to that of a comfy sofa. There are plenty of storage spaces and even a wireless mobile phone charger on top-of-the-range models.
MG cars are renowned for featuring the latest safety technology and the all-new 2023 MG RX5 is no different. Occupant safety is prioritized by the installation of a body structure that comprises over 65 percent high strength steel to minimize the impact of any collision by absorbing the energy.
