Stylish and smart sedans: MG 5 vs. 6

MG is covering all bases from crossovers to sedans. The British/Chinese carmaker's 5 takes the mainstream market, while the 6 covers the upscale side of business. 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How much is the MG 5?

    The MG 5 retails from P659,000 to P939,000. This subcompact sedan features touchscreen infotainment and LED lights.
  • What is the price of the MG 6?

    The MG 6 carries a price tag of P1.069 to P1.189 million. The compact sedan features niceties such as a sunroof and a red-and-black leather interior.
  • The 5 wears a stylish exterior within its subcompact body. The front fascia is adorned with LED headlamps and DRLs, a wide chrome grille with horizontal slats, and fog lamps with chrome surrounds. 

    Moving to the side profile of the 5, character lines run across the length of the car, which complement the C-pillars and a set of 15- or 16-inch alloys wheels. The rear end of the 5 flaunts a pair of curved taillamps and a subtle trunk-lid spoiler.

    The 5 may be an entry-level MG, but it's far from lacking any attractive equipment.

    Inside, you'll find a wealth of toys, such as: three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, push-button start/stop function, automatic climate control, a large 10-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and powered driver seat. The equipment list is topped off by a sunroof.

    Moving on to the 6, it's as stylish as its smaller sibling. The 6 is immediately recognizable thanks to its fastback shape, with its sloping roof line creating a seamless line with the trunk led. 

    Up front, a bold chrome grille is flanked by a pair of projector type headlamps which also have built-in LED DRLs. Like the 5, the 6 wears its fog lamps on either ends of the bumper to give the fascia a wider, more aggressive appearance. MG 6MG 6

    Shiny silver details, such as the skid plate, fender detail, and door handles, lend classiness to the 6's styling. The sleek rear end meets upswept LED taillights on either end makes up the rear end of the car. The 6 rides on chic, 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels. 

    Inside, swathes of two-tone black and red trim is in keeping with the 6's upscale positioning. The drivers views a seven-inch virtual instrument cluster, while infotainment comes by way of an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay.

    MG 6MG 6The steering wheel’s flat bottom gives a sporty intent, with added multi-functional controls to keep up with the times. The front seats are powered, and even feature lumbar support for the benefit of the driver's and passenger's lower backs. A sunroof lets more light in the cabin. 

    The MG 5 and 6 are not only stylish and well-equipped, but these two sedans offer substance, too. Their spec sheets, as provided below, reflect that quality.
