Default Nanjing MG - MG7 sedan

MG7 Spy Photo - http://www.chinacartimes.com/wp-content/mg7.jpg


More info - http://coolbrit.net/blog/2007/...ster/

"Things are progressing at Nanjing-MG, their MGTF is ready for production and rumors over at enthusiast website MG-Rover.org suggest theyre gearing up to relaunch an updated range of sedans too. ChinaCarTimes.com recently spotted the new MG7 sedan, which is expected to launch soon after the TF roadster. High-performance Z variants tuned by Lotus might also be in the works for buyers who require sportier driving characteristics"

MG's tuned by Lotus sound like a great combination!
The rest of the article has information about future MG's for North America.

Disappointed that they're not changing the styling. How will customers differentiate it from Roewe's 750?

The Nanjing looks a bit different now and why ruin a perfect shape anyway?

They should put the twin headlights from the old MG ZT back.

Soo the Nanjing remains an original Rover and the Roewe is a facelifted one? Confusing, but good to have an "normal" Rover 75 left. O hope they keep the "old" interior, too.

To be honest it really isn't known what they will be changing or not changing. Apparently the European version of the TF will be updated from how it looked when MG-R went belly up, but the Cars in China will be the version that has been shown in the recent press photos.

I'd be very suprised if the the MG7 is not an updated version of the MG ZT, after all Nanjing pretty much have access to all the developments that MG-R had in the pipeline. My guess is that most of the Updates that SAIC have used on the Roewe 750E were likely designed by MG-R for their own update of the Rover 75.

A Chinese MG ZT is not necessarily a bad thing as long as they make it the same way the Britons did. Or will they make them in UK?

Apparently those nice chaps at BMW have agreed to allow Nanjing to use all the BMW proprietary technology previously used in the Rover 75/MG ZT in the MG7 - things like the M47R diesel engine in 114bhp and 131bhp states of tune, certain elements of the electrical system derived from the previous 3-series and the front-drive variant of the famed Z-axle rear suspension.

Well, it's been rumoured that quite a lot of the old Rover 75 production line remains in Longbridge, so it seems likely that European market MG7's will eventually be assembled there using parts sourced from China.
