In terms of looks & design ,it’s almost as similar as Tata Harrier design where main headlights are DRLS with turn indicators & low/high beam headlights are placed just below the DRLS. In lower most LED Fog lamps are placed. It’s good to see that, the maximum lights are LED’S both in exterior & in interior.
Side profile is longest in it’s segment that’s why you don’t feel any issue related to leg room.Apart from that Height is also more than sufficient, therefore headroom is also very good. Glass area is massive & sunroof is longest compare to any other car so it’s fell more airry & spacious. 17 inches of spoked diamond cut alloy wheels mounted on the rims which make’s a SUV to roar on the roads.
Back profile is too busy due to so many chrome treatment ,long tail lamps,& large glass area but it feels different signature of MG just like another powerful brands like Mercedes & Audi.
It bad to see the width of the car is shortest so it’s seems there may be some problem while seating 3 persons at the back & feels quite congested.
