British carmaker MG has showcased the performance-spec avatar of 6 Saloon with the iconic XPower badge. In its second generation, MG6 XPower has an overpowering look with an ultra-wide body design and an aerodynamic body kit. Its sleek character lines and lower posture are perfectly complemented by a carbon fiber rear spoiler. The blackened taillight adopts the exclusive “X” shape.
The overall interior is designed with contrast stitching having green and grey highlights. The three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel is covered with Alcantara leather while the inner door panels are decorated with high-end suede material, which has an excellent texture.
MG6 XPower also provides unique “X” family customization with the logo appearing in many places such as sports seats, side skirts, center armrest, and the door sill. MG6 XPower further provides each owner with a limited-edition number.
The MG6 XPower comes equipped with a 305 PS high-performance plug-in hybrid system, including a 1.5T Trophy in-cylinder direct-injection turbocharged engine and a high-power permanent magnet synchronous motor, which achieves a peak torque of 480 Nm and accelerates to 100 kilometers in only 6 seconds. The new car comes loaded with a 10-speed EDU second-generation intelligent electric drive gearbox.
In terms of braking, the new model is equipped with the imported racing-grade 920E 6-piston fixed callipers specially designed for the XPower family. The newly designed floating brake disc is matched with the newly upgraded front and rear caliper brake system to achieve a high-precision braking effect, achieving the performance at 33 meters from 100 kmph to 0.
The new car is equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport CUP2 high-performance semi-hot-melt patterned tires, which use dual-tread formula technology. The outer side of the tire adopts a “polymer chain” elastomer; the inner side uses a harder elastomer to bring more precise steering and driving control.
By adjusting the spring, the overall posture of the MG6 XPower body is reduced by 10mm, and a larger shock absorber structure with a leapfrog configuration is adopted to increase the lateral rigidity, better support performance, faster vehicle response, and improved driving comfort and stability.
