It’s no surprise that MG will be returning to Malaysia – the C-segment MG HS and MG ZS EV have been caught several times on Malaysian soil.The missing piece to this puzzle was the origins of MG vehicles, would they be imported (CBU) from MG’s plant in Thailand or locally-assembled (CKD)?While younger readers may not have heard of the MG marque before, it does have an interesting history.

The MG Linghang is the X70-rivalling MG HS with a new face

While the rest of the world is singing praises on how the MG HS has a front that reminds them of the Mazda CX-5, in China, there is a new facelift for the rival to the Proton X70 and Honda CR-V.It also has a new name too.
