July 14, 2022 by
The practical, fully electric MG 5 Estate car has been revamped for 2022 with new looks and upgraded tech. Read on for full details…
- New MG 5 Estate on sale now
- Costs from £30,995
- Revised design with new bumpers
- Extra standard equipment
- New vehicle-to-load feature
This is the updated MG 5 Estate car. It comes with plenty of upgrades over the old model and is on sale now, priced from £30,995 – that’s about £1,300 more than the outgoing car.
The most obvious upgrade for the new MG 5 is its brand-new face. The old car’s characterless fake grille has been chucked out and replaced by a much more modern bumper with a few contrasting black trims.
Check out this review of the outgoing MG 5 to see how different the new car looks…
The MG badge has migrated upwards onto the bonnet and the new LED headlights have a tapered triangular design that emphasises the car’s width. Sure, it won’t turn as many heads as something like the eye-popping Hyundai Ioniq 5, but it’s certainly a huge improvement over the previous car.
The new MG 5 comes in a choice of trim levels – simply put, the more you want to pay, the more kit you’ll get as standard.
MG 5 SE – from £30,995
The SE model comes as standard with a reversing camera, adaptive cruise control, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
MG 5 Trophy – from £33,495
Upgraded ‘Trophy’ versions cost £2,500 more but add 17-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, a 360-degree surround-view camera system and a larger 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Leather seats are also standard and come with electric adjustment and a built-in heater in the front– handy on cold winter mornings.
Speaking of which, you also get automatic climate control to heat the rest of the cabin.
MG hasn’t just thrown more toys at the new 5 Estate, it’s also given the car a new vehicle-to-load charging feature.
Think of this as charging in reverse. Instead of juicing up your car’s battery, you can use the MG 5 to recharge other electrical gubbins, from laptops to electric scooters – anything that uses a conventional three-pin plug.
MG hasn’t confirmed whether it’s changed the MG 5’s batteries or motor, so you can expect this new model to deliver the same 214 miles of claimed range. Charging it from 0%-80% full using a fast CCS public charger should take around 50 minutes, just like in the outgoing car.
