The 1.5-litre motor pumps out 169 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque while the 2.0-litre power unit churns out 221 horses and 350 Nm of torque.

Mated to a smart all-wheel-drive system, the MG RX5 launches form 0-100 km/h in 8.2 seconds. The intelligent system also offers impressive off-road performance on select models along with a new generation of electromagnetic torque management.
