RX5 Overview

The Philippines market is driven by cost-effective and efficient cars, especially SUVs and MPVs. Thus, a lot of automakers have been focusing on inflating the market with quality cars, like the Mitsubishi Xpander and Toyota Rush. Among the many, the MG RX5 stands tall with its uncompromising features and an engine that could put its competitors to shame. 

Priced at just a little over PHP 1,000,000, the MG RX5 is the perfect blend of a powerful engine and design that could charm. It has been one of the reasons that helped the automaker end 2019 on a high with a good sales number. It is available in both manual and automatic trim levels with different variants.

MG RX5 Interior & Features

The cabin of the MG RX5 looks extremely sophisticated with a combination of beige and black colour all around. The 3-spoke steering wheel has control buttons for the music system as well. The infotainment system is nicely stacked with a touch display and a lot of controller knobs and buttons.

The air-conditioning system gets automatic climate control for the optimum comfort of all the occupants. There are AC vents at the rear too. All the windows are power operated and the same provides testimony to how plush and feature-rich the car is. The seat upholstery is very comfortable and adjustable, while the driver gets a height-adjustable unit.

RX5 Exterior

The MG RX5 has a butch appeal all across. The front fascia is extremely sculpted with chrome embellished horizontal slats on the front grille. The projector headlamps' setup has LED DRLs integrated on them. The headlamps are adjustable and there are fog lamps as well. The brake lights at the rear get LED treatment, which further enhances the overall appeal. 

The lower manual transmission trim runs on 17-inch alloy wheels, while the higher automatic variant rides on bigger 18-inch alloys with 235-section tyres. The SUV measures a little over 4.5 metres in length and has a wheelbase of 2.7 metres. The presence of roof rails means camping is always on with this car.


MG RX5 Ride & Handling

Being a spacious 5-seater SUV, the MG RX5 handles really well. It is long and has good wheelbase. That, combined with a high ground clearance of 175 mm ensures that the car glides on bad roads and feels stable on a straight line, irrespective of the speed.

The suspension setup is put together well. The MacPherson Strut front and Multi-link rear suspension pull out a very comfortable drive. However, the set up is not very spongy and does not feel bouncy on bad roads. The high power production helps the SUV achieve a top speed of 208 kmph.

RX5 Engine & Fuel Consumption

The MG RX5 does not lag behind with the engine as well. It is powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that can churn out a maximum power of 166 bhp and the highest torque of 250 Nm.

The produced power is sent down to the wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox on the lower trim and 7-speed automatic stick on the top trim. The availability of humongous torque at a very low engine RPM in a very linear way is what keeps the drivers interested at all times.

MG RX5 Braking & Safety

The MG RX5 is built with an uncompromising eye on the safety department. It maintains its stability on the highways, thanks to the sticky tyres and stable steering. 

Inside the cabin, the MG RX5 gets dual airbags for the driver and front passenger as standard. As for the braking department, the anti-lock braking system and electronic brakeforce distribution ensure good stopping power. Other sensors include vehicle stability control, parking sensors, crash sensors, traction control, and tyre pressure monitoring.


RX5 Verdict

The MG RX5 competes directly against the Mitsubishi Xpander and Toyota Rush. However, though it is slightly more expensive than the competitors, the features and higher power delivery make it the most preferable option to choose from.

However, the only drawback that the buyers may consider is the lack of airbags for the windows and rear passengers.

    I earlier had a compact hatchback which offered decent riding. I wanted to shift to a bigger car with more features. Big SUVs are highly expensive. But the MG RX5 suited my budget. I have been driving the car for more than 3 years and am extremely satisfied. There’s lots of space in the cabin to fit 5 adults. The Read More

    The MG RX5 is one of the finest cars in its segment in the Philippines market. I can say that after buying the car and driving it for over 9 months. I bought the car primarily on my wife’s insistence when we were looking for a family car. The MG RX5 is a really great car and a value for Read More

    The British carmaker has come up in a great way with an array of cars targeting all sections of customers. The RX5 has a nicely balanced styling. It’s neither too aggressive, nor very subtle. The headlamps and taillights all add to the fancy bits and ups the looks. The interior is rather simple and made up of hard plastics. It’s Read More

    The MG RX5 is a car like no other. Being one of the most premium forms of SUV offerings, some of the words that I can use to describe this car are: Versatile, Capable, Sporty, and Fun. I’ve been using the car for over a year now and have used it to cover 1000km around the Philippines. I must admit, Read More

The infotainment experience is nice Read More

    I am a proud wonder of the MG RX5 and have been driving it for two major reasons. The car is a complete package in terms of performance, mated to looks. It is a powerful beast that can never go ignored on the street of the Philippines. I did receive quite a lot of praise on my choice and that Read More

    MG cars look very stylish and appear to be expensive. But when I enquired about the pricing, I was surprised to find out that the MG RX5 is not as expensive as it seems. It is a 5 seater SUV that is very powerful on the engine and has loads of features inside the cabin. The engine makes 166 hp, Read More

    I was looking for a car that I could gift to my father, and my friend suggested me to consider buying MG RX5. However, it was the first time I heard the name of this brand, so I was a bit sceptical. When I saw the design and spec sheet of the car, I was very surprised and decided to Read More

    I was not much aware of MG brand and their cars off late. Recently I was conversing with a friend at party who works for this particular company. He gave me some good idea and a positive impact about this car. Since I was already in the verge of changing my previous car, I thought why not to opt for Read More
