However, this isn’t the first time Javed Afridi has teased launch of new MG vehicles in Pakistan. The Pakistani entrepreneur has previously teased many cars, including the MG3, MG5 and MG6 Sedans but none of the vehicles have ever been confirmed by the company itself.

MG RX8 SUV looks similar to the Toyota Land Cruiser in terms of interior but in a completely different segment. The vehicle features a simple yet trendy interior with stitched fabric seats.
The vehicle is powered by a 2.0L turbo petrol engine capable of producing 224hp and 360Nm of torque while equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle comes in two variants, including a 4×2 rear wheel drive (RWD) and a 4×4 option.
However, it is still too early to tell when this vehicle will be hitting the roads of Pakistan as there has been no official announcement by the company yet.
