MG models come with a superior interior which has been revamped to fit the modern style. Unlike other competition, MG opts in for a modern look over aggressive design. Frankly, it is refreshing to see a different approach in terms of design. Since it’s a new brand making its debut in Nepal, it is yet to be seen how it will perform in the market. It is especially important as it will go head-on against Honda Creta and Toyota Rush. As for the MG as a global company, MG has already established a manufacturing plant in Thailand, to expand its network in Southeast Asia. Furthermore, the company has shown interest to invest in a production facility in India.
