The MG 3 Xross crossover has been officially presented to the public at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, and even if we don’t know if the model will arrive in Europe, its interior and exterior design says it has all the potential of doing it.
According to the manufacturer, the MG 3 Xross takes its power from a 1.5 liter 16-valve VTi engine, which is developing a total output of 107 horsepower at 6.000 rpm and has a peak torque of 99 lb-ft available at 4.500 rpm, mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, sending power to the front wheels. The MG 3 Xross can reach a top speed of 113 mph and is able to return 43 mpg (UK) for the manual transmission version, while the one fitted with the automatic gearbox can reach 111 mph and is returning 43 mpg (UK).
Even if the regular version of the MG 3 is also available with the 1.3 liter engine, the crossover won’t get it. The new MG 3 Xross is 4.079 mm long, 1.739 mm wide and 1.528 mm high, which means that it’s 88 mm longer, 11 mm wider and 11 mm higher than the standard MG 3. The wheelbase remains unchanged for both models, which measures 2.520 mm. The crossover version of the MG 3 has a cargo space which is offering 256 liters with the rear seats up and 938 liters with the seats folded.
