The very first SUV model in concept form made a debut at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show. Christened the Icon, it has fetched quite some inspiration from some of the very famous cars of the brand, like MGA and MGB GT. The small sized SUV has been designed in an attention grabbing way and comes added with some freshness in terms of styling.
Icon bears a striking resemblance to the Nissan Juke, but definitely comes tagged with a lot attitude. The design is very promising and has been brought to life by the MG global design team. It is under 4 meters long and has been based the B platform of the MG3. The rear hinged doors in the back of the eye catching SUV will delete the B pillar. The doors allow easy entry and exit, which is quite a pleasant trait.
The British automaker has focused on classic designs and styling, which is clearly evident from thin and lateral grille, round headlamps and narrow tail lamps. Icon SUV Concept can comfortably seat four people, while providing a generous headroom and leg room. The rear seats can be folded in case extra cargo space is required when out for shopping or going for a vacation. The SUV concept has been specially made to celebrate the 50 anniversary of MGB in a memorable way.
