Introducing the MG GT: Bangladesh’s next staple sedan
A nation moving upwards deserves a car that symbolises and personifies it. The MG GT, also known as the MG 5 in many global markets, is here to do exactly that. For generations, MG has been producing some of the fastest and meanest vehicles in the world. From its earliest days, their cars have been designed to conquer race tracks all over Britain and now, they have translated that racing DNA into a beast fit for everyday usage. The MG GT comes in two variations, the CVT and DCT, both designed to deliver peak performance in the most unforgiving conditions and make you look stylish while doing so.
The MG GT might be classified as a sedan but it reflects every ounce of MG's sporting heritage in all of its glory. Boasting a futuristic outlook, it comes packed with a 1.5L turbo engine capable of producing a maximum torque of 150/4500 RPM (in CVT) and 250/3000-4000 RPM (in the DCT). What all that translates to is you will never be left without power at any point in your drive. It is tailored to perfection for anyone who loves to drive with 17" alloy wheels and has been designed in a way that overcomes every possible barrier or obstacles you might face on the road. The MG GT has three different driving modes — ECO, Normal, and Sport — so you can choose how much fun you want to have with it.
It's not all about looks and performance though. MG wants the GT to become the next staple and has left no stones unturned to ensure that it is an ideal fit for any household. It is packed with safety features such as airbags, automatic locking doors which activate as soon as the vehicle starts moving and 3-point seatbelts in both the front and back. It also has some amazing entertainment options such as a 6-speaker entertainment system with 3D sound effect (only in the DCT) and a 10" multi-function colour touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Not just that, but it has an extremely cool and convenient feature in the form of audio controls on the steering wheel which allows you to toggle your playlist with ease while driving.
What's even more amazing is the price point of both vehicles. The CVT is priced at Tk 36 lakhs and DCT at Tk 39 lakhs, making them the best possible option in its price segment. The MG GT also comes in 4 exciting colours for you to choose from. Each vehicle also comes with a 5-year warranty (or 100,000 km mileage, whichever comes first) and also 6 free services. A 10/10 on looks, performance and everything in between. Truly a vehicle in a league of its own at a very reasonable price point.
