MG sets its sights on Nissan Juke with ‘urban SUV’ concept

Time 9:36 am, April 15, 2013

71177mgMG has unveiled a sporty ‘urban SUV’ concept car, unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show.

Aimed squarely at the likes of the Nissan Juke and Vauxhall Mokka, the ‘CS’ concept is designed to fit into ‘one of the fastest growing areas of the global automotive market’ – the mini-SUV segment.

Penned by a ‘top design team’, lead by MG’s global design director Anthony Williams-Kenny, MG says that the CS ‘oozes British design flair while embracing the sporting DNA of MG’.

Up front, the ‘shard’-like headlamps set off the sharp face of the CS– featuring the trademark MG grille, as seen on the MG6, and red highlights around the fog lamps.

From the rear, the CS is even more striking – with twin exhaust pipes and sharp lines that are more reminiscent of one of BMW’s SUVs than something with an MG badge.

MG are yet to confirm whether the car will make it into production, but with a history of doing so – the firm turning one of their previous concept cars, the MG ZERO, into the MG3 hatchback – it’s not out of the question.
