Again, disclaimer, I don't know how to insert the video link.
Hopefully you all can view this review of both vehicles in question.

Price seems to be the greatest dissatisfaction with the Vezel.

My Guess is $290K for the fabric and $330K for the leather. Thy look like they have the same engine and safety features, the main difference is the sunroof and seats.

Heard they have a December shipment.

Those MG’s will implode on its owners just now and the dealer will have an influx of these pos cars taking up the majority of time of their master techs thus limiting resources to their other brands.

The EMA should look into the effects of more cars rotting in bushes throughout our island which MG wishes to contribute in exponentially. New MGs will meet old rotting MGs in the bush, how ironic.

Kia finally has a brand that they would be more reliable than, it’s a major selling point for Kia sales reps now that MG has arrived.

That's right! MG's are actually Chinese made wheel barrows with a temporary engine carrying a bunch of bogus parts. Difference between a wheelbarrow in the bamboo and a MG is that the latter can be registered.

Sadly the Nissan QG, QR, HR and MR are garbage next to CA, GA and SR engines so MG's with HR and MR swaps might still be considered garbage cause supply of said SR's would be more of a problem as time passes.

Phillip, go caroni and take that to admin on the left. Walk with yuh evidence and your matter would be solved.

yup can't beat the days when Nissan was Nissan. I was joking about the swap, I assume with proper maintenance met at the correct intervals the MGs should hold up (key word *should*) . The problem is that the new MG people most likely aren't car people or probably didn't have guidance from a real car person. I guess time will tell

When the designers of the Ford EcoSport, Nissan Latio and bucktooth BMW’s saw some of these new Kia designs, they went back to their bosses and asked for a raise. Even a drunk armless Mazda designer can do better.

The QG engines were very good engines. The QR wasn't all that great but the MR were good replacements.
I have been tinkering with a HR and have solved many inherent problems to the extent that coupled with the CVT makes a very enjoyable drive with even the CVT woes also being addressed.
Very few nissan engines were bad from the start but like many if no attention is paid to them they must have parts failure.
My biggest gripe with the GA DNE versions was the integrated MAF in the throttle body. While being a compact setup the cost of replacements got expensive. The GA16DE Vtc was a baby SR and and excellent engine all round.

SR engines will always live long and prosper!

SR is life
Hands down my favourite engine of all time. Can't wait to get my hands on one soon to mess around with.
Going to take that N/A SR title once and for all


Edit
You say SR and yuh boy get too excited. Drove that HR powered car already and it runs real good. Some good torque available under your right foot and with the lowered ride height it's a very enjoyable drive.
