It looks like it won't only be the 2020 ZS that will be making its way in the Philippines soon. After giving their very popular B-segment crossover a facelift inside and out last August 2019, the 4-door MG6 is also set to get an update.
Just yesterday, images of what appear to be the 2020 MG6 have made their way onto the internet. If the images are legitimate, MG appears to have given their fastback an Audi-like makeover.
The MG6 fastback gets a new pair of sleek LED headlights, a bolder front grill with a large MG logo, a sportier front bumper, a slightly tweaked rear bumper, new alloy wheels, and bigger exhaust pipe finishers.
Aside from giving it a nip and tuck, MG also introduced a plethora of optional exterior upgrades. These include accented door trim pieces, shark-fin antenna, a sunroof, as well as a rear wing. For those that prefer the fastback with a more sinister look, the MG6's front grill, trunk lid trim, and window décor can be specified in black.
Under the hood, the 2020 MG6 will be powered by a new 1.5-liter turbocharged, direct-injection engine dubbed the 330 TDI. While it may be similar in size as the outgoing version, the new motor will supposedly produce 178 PS; 12 PS more than the current 1.5-liter turbo. With the new engine, MG claims that the MG6 will have a claimed top speed of 210 km/h, and average fuel consumption of around 16 km/l.
There is no official word as to when the updated MG6 will be released. But given that the leaked photos appear to show the production car in full, it may not be long before the automaker officially unveils it to the public. As to when it will be arriving in the Philippines, we'll venture a guess that it will be either late in 2020, or in the first semester of 2021.
