MG GT gets a Chinese name
MG GT, a high-performance and fashionable mid-range vehicle from SAIC Motors, got a Chinese name--Mingjue Ruixing -- on May 7. It is the company’s second vehicle to be named in Chinese, following the MG GS, whose Chinese name is Mingjue Ruiteng.
Ruixing means forging ahead with determination. It explains the GT’s unique look and sharp character as well as its commitment to young love. The Chinese name inherits the spirit of the MG brand and expresses the GT’s fashionable look and ultra-high performance. As a fourth-generation MG GT vehicle, the vehicle fully expresses the passionate and challenging individuality and confident attitude of the younger generation. As brand representative Zhao Youting says, the MG GT was born for youth.
In addition, Ruixing sums up the most attractive highlights of the MG GT—the sharp and avant-garde British design, effective and environmentally-friendly dynamics and cutting-edge intelligent science. The vehicle features sculpture-like sharp lines, a fastback, a straight air-inlet grille and suspended blade intranet design. The whole design is rich with tension and reflects a British style that sets the vehicle apart from others.
The MG GS uses SAIC’s NetBlue, a highly effective new-generation powertrain, with an SGE 1.4 TGI engine featuring a series of advanced technologies, including cylinder direct injection, turbocharging, dual variable-valve timing and engine stop-start. The engine’s maximum power reaches 150 horsepower, with 235 NM in maximum torque, putting it on a par with leading brands worldwide. It is paired with the brand new TST 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, with less than 0.2 seconds of shift time and a sensitivity that is comparable to an F1 vehicle. This optimal combination results in acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometers in 9.5 seconds and 5.9 liters/100 km in fuel consumption, which can fully satisfy young consumers' needs for power, energy conservation and environmental protection. The MG GT provides all-round safety for passengers. It is equipped with the inkaNet4.0 intelligent network travel system and has passed the C-NCAP 5-star anti-collision test.
To the younger generation, MG brought in changes making the GT no longer out of reach. MG has focused on developing a Dream Car for youth through brand new design language, a strong powertrain and intelligent science and technology. The MG GT realizes the dream of the younger generation, thanks to its great look, performance and value. It enables many young people to experience the excitement of traveling this big world whenever they want.
