Meet the New 2020 MG 5 at the MG Live! Free Concert this October
If you didn't catch its "first look" at the recently-concluded 2019 Cebu Auto Show, then here’s your chance to see this stylish, class-leading, British-heritage subcompact sedan up close and in the metal: The MG 5 makes its Metro Manila public debut at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center from October 3 to 6, 2019, and will be flanked by other models in MG Philippines’ current lineup such as the MG ZS crossover SUV, MG RX5 SUV, and the MG 6 fastback sedan. The MG 5 enters a very competitive subcompact sedan segment, but it has what it takes to stay a cut above the rest. Best-in-class length (4,601mm), width (1,788mm), and wheelbase (2,680mm) result in impressive legroom for both front and rear passengers, not to mention a more commanding stance on the road. It features a fuel-efficient 1.5-liter DOHC 16-valve naturally-aspirated engine that produces 112 hp and has a best-in-class torque output of 150Nm, and is mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or automatic CVT with manual mode. The MG 5 also features first-in-segment features such as a user-friendly 10-inch touch screen infotainment head unit that can run both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; 360-degree vehicle view, which gives drivers a bird’s-eye view of the car, making it easier to negotiate tight parking spaces and obstructions in low speed traffic; a power driver's seat for optimum comfort adjustment; and auto on/off LED headlamps.
To celebrate the MG 5's Metro Manila launch, MG Philippines is mounting the latest leg of its ongoing free concert series, MG Live! This latest edition of MG Live! powered by Phoenix Pulse Technology will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2019, at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center, and will showcase a full set from OPM hotshots IV of Spades. "We at MG Philippines have always regarded MG Live! as a celebration of the vibrance and the youthfulness of modern MGs, as well as the rich musical talent inherent in the Philippines," says Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, President and CEO of TCCCI-MG Philippines. "This edition of MG Live! is particularly special because it highlights our latest sedan, the MG 5, which is a model that we at MG Philippines recognize as an important participant in the highly competitive subcompact sedan category, and a vehicle that speaks to an even wider audience. This event is our way of bringing the MG 5 and all of our cars closer to the local market in a manner that all Filipinos can relate to--through music." Aside from the free concert highlight, MG Philippines will make the MG 5 as well as the other cars in its stable available for test drive. Patrons simply have to visit the MG Philippines display at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center from October 3 to 6, 2019 and schedule a test drive with their MG model of choice (last call for test drives will be at 5 PM every day.) October is also a very special month for TCCCI and MG Philippines, as the former celebrates its 10th-year anniversary, while MG Philippines marks one year under TCCCI. In under 12 months, MG Philippines has mounted national launch campaigns of four unique cars, has rolled out numerous aftersales complements, and has strengthened its dealership network, now with a total of 11 dealerships nationwide (with seven more dealerships expected to be opened before the end of 2019.) MG Philippines' premium aftersales offers and services include a five-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first), and one-year free periodic maintenance service (PMS) to set your mind at ease. MG owners can also download the My MG mobile app which allows them to easily schedule vehicle servicing appointments from the convenience of their smartphones. They can also use the app to book a visit from a Mobile Garage service caravan that provides MG owners with vehicle home service for major technical issues. MG HERO Services, on the other hand, provides 24/7 roadside support through the MG Philippines hotline (+632 328 4664). The latest edition of MG Live! happening this October is going to be a lively event; a fitting occasion to launch the new 2020 MG 5 sedan, a new and competitive player in the field. The all-new 2020 MG 5 is available in the following variants, at the following price points: MG 5 1.5 STD 5MT - PHP658,888 MG 5 1.5 COM CVT - PHP848,888 MG 5 1.5 STD CVT - PHP718,888 MG 5 1.5 DEL CVT - PHP938,888
