The brand MG is as old as they come. Dating back to 1923 the British automaker (now under SAIC's wing) is making its India debut this year! Yes, while earlier reports suggested that the first MG Motors cars will roll out in 2019-2020, the brand seems to have revised its strategy and now will launch its first car for India, an SUV, in 2018 itself.

Dial in the fact that the ZS has … [Read more...] about MG Motors To Launch SUV In India This Year!
