According to sales consultant MG, the brand will launch the RX5 model in September 2023. The seller also added that the model has currently completed the registration process in the Vietnamese market.
MG Vietnam has not confirmed this information. The dealers have not revealed the specific parameters and equipment of the MG RX5.
Thus, it is likely that the RX5 will launch alongside the MG HS. In terms of segment, the RX5 is almost at par with the HS.
For reference, in the Chinese market, the RX5’s dimensions are 4,571 x 1,855 x 1,719 (mm), with a wheelbase of 2,708 mm. Thus, the car is comparable to C-shaped SUV/crossover models sold in Vietnam, such as the Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage or Peugeot 3008.
The price of MG RX5 in the Vietnam market has not been revealed yet. There is information that in line with MG’s “inherent tradition”, this SUV is priced best in the segment. However, MG Vietnam is yet to confirm the above information.
After the transition period, MG Vietnam is taking several new steps to broaden its product range. Apart from the HS and RX5, the sales consultants also said that MG7 and MG4 will also be released by the end of 2023.
