At the 2012 Beijing Auto Show MG will present the Icon Concept, a midsize SUV with a design inspired by the brand’s classic model.
At the upcoming Beijing Show (25 April – 2 May 2012), MG is unveiling the Icon Concept, which – as the name suggests – adopts a design influenced by MG’s heritage.
More specifically, the front end with the round headlights and chromed grille and the fastback rear end have some reminiscences of the MGB GT of the 1960s.
The interior is more futuristic and features a symmetric dashboard with integrated LCD displays.
Among the main design elements are the metal-finished stripes that run in the door panels and along the lower area of the dashboard and the three circular air vents at the center of the dashboard, visually recalled by the steering wheel center piece.
The rear seats can be folded to leave space for a flat cargo area.
According to the first information the car – developed by SAIC designers – is based on the Roewe 350 and could be launched on the market with a 1.5 liter gasoline engine and a choice between front- and all-wheel drive transmission.
