The MG RC6 is a rebadged model of the Baojun RC-6 sold in China operated under the SAIC umbrella that is owned by the state itself. The RC6 might be making its way into India, and if launched, it will rival the likes of the Skoda Superb. The RC6 looks pretty grand upfront, with a massive grille stealing the limelight from the headlamps with surround DRL’s. The side profile looks oddly proportioned as if the car does not know if its a coupe or a luxury sedan.

Dimensionally the RC6 is 4925 mm long, 1880 mm wide and 158 0mm tall. What these numbers mean is that the car is slightly bigger than the Skoda Superb, which is what this would be rivalling against.

The rear is pretty sophisticated looking but maybe is a tad too high for a sedan in this segment. These cars are meant to look discreet, yet imposing. This car is certainly testing the boundaries of that. One thing this car gets right is the interior. The interior is largely dominated by the single sheet of glass that houses 2 displays for the infotainment and the gauge cluster. The design is sophisticated and the interior is well finished and has lots of technology.

The car is powered by a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine that makes 155 HP and 250 Nm of torque. The car can be had with a CVT or a 6-speed manual transmission.


The MG eMG6 has a peculiar name. Firstly the naming scheme is like ‘Ferrari LaFerrari”, and secondly because this car is not electric, its a plug-in hybrid. Naming aside, the design is quite similar to the Genesis G70, which is quite similar to the BMW 3 series. The front holds nothing special except a huge grille, which apparently the Chinese like, according to BMW.

The taillights, however, show a strong resemblance to the Mercedes C-class. Overall this car’s design works and in this red colour will certainly turn heads. There really is not much to this car, as it’s not coming to India and instead is a showcase of MG’s mettle in making sedans and plug-in hybrids. MG wants to focus mainly on SUV’s in India, which makes sense, as they are a recipe for good sales with the current buyer sentiment.
