(8 January 2024, Middle East) British-born automotive brand MG is expanding its comprehensive range of sedans and SUVs in the Middle East as the brand kicks off 2024 with the launch of the new MG Whale SUV Coupe.

The futuristic design and the daring coupe-like silhouette of the MG Whale embody the youthful and progressive spirit of the people who live and work in the vibrant cities of the region. The whale-inspired details like its signature front grille and baleen daytime running lamps help convey the playfulness, intelligence, and grace of its namesake. Other marine-related cues include whale-fin door mirrors and a whale-tail spoiler and gearshift.

Additionally, traits like the two-tone glossy black roof, matte gold bumper accents, chrome dual exhaust pipes, and silver decoration add to the visual appeal of the SUV Coupe. The car also rides on stylish alloy wheels, which have a large 19-inch diameter indicating its stylistic dominance over its competitors.

The SUV Coupe offers a well-laid-out, premium quality cabin that will ensure daily commutes and long journeys are quiet, hassle-free, and comfortable, thanks to features like electric seat adjustments with memory seats, dual-zone air conditioning, and a power-operated panoramic sunroof.

Passengers will also be entertained and remain connected thanks to the superlative technologies and features like the nine-speaker BOSE sound system, 256-color ambient lighting setup, and the seamlessly integrated dual 12.3-inch curved panoramic screen.

The comprehensive list of safety features includes an HD 360-degree surround view system and a host of active and passive safety features and electronic aids to make the journey incident-free as well as comfortable. Moreover, the MG Whale is built on a chassis with a high-strength structure that is rated for high levels of torsional stiffness, which will provide maximum protection and a dynamic advantage.

The sleek SUV Coupe is driven by a powerful 2-liter turbocharged engine producing 231 HP and 370 Nm torque, which is coupled to a reliable eight-speed automatic gearbox. The forced-induction motor provides the torque necessary to transport five passengers and their luggage swiftly and efficiently, while the low-displacement configuration aided by the eight speeds of the modern transmission helps minimize fuel consumption.

Tom Lee, managing director of MG Motor’s Middle East operations, said: “MG’s campaign to deliver great value SUVs continues with the launch of our all-new Whale model.

The MG Whale will be appreciated by those who are progressive and believe in self-expression. The emotive design language draws cues from the whale to reflect power and grace in its lines. It also offers an exceptional list of comfort options with an affordable package to cater to the demands and needs of our customers in the Middle East.”

The starting price for the MG Whale is $23,700 (excluding taxes) and prices for each market will be announced shortly. The new MG Whale models will also benefit from the brand’s acclaimed six-year/200,000 km warranty.
