With a wheelbase of 2,705mm, length of 4,287 mm, a width of 1,836 mm and just 1,504 mm in height, the five-door hatchback is perfectly suited to its competitive environment. The low height of the car is made possible by its particularly flat battery. The MG4 uses the flattest battery developed to-date; with a height of just 110 mm, it’s even the thinnest battery in its class.

The MG4 offers a comfortable and spacious cabin with enough space for a family of five, while maintaining sleek and sporty proportions. The luggage compartment capacity is between 363 and 1,177 litres by volume. In addition, its balanced 50:50 weight distribution allows better handling, more direct steering movements and fast cornering. In combination with rear-wheel drive, the new MG4 ensures optimum driving pleasure.

The MG4 uses several advanced driver assistance and safety systems.

While the MG4 Lux, Extended Range and XPOWER, MG Pilot also boasts Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and Lane Change Assist (LCA). In addition, it warns for crossing traffic behind the vehicle thanks to Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and for oncoming traffic when opening the doors due to Door Opening Warning (DOW). A 360-degree camera shows the driver the environment all around the MG4 on the display.
