Since it’s launch in Pakistan, MG has become a preference for many car enthusiasts. The Chinese-owned British company debuted in the local market a compact SUV, The MG HS. It goes without saying that the HS was a huge success as Pakistanis generally have a liking for SUVs. Recently, MG has been teasing the audience with a series of short videos with the most recent one opening with the text: “THE WORLD OF MG IS ABOUT TO OPEN ITS GATES”, shortly after which a yellow car zooms over it. Does this mean that we will be seeing MG GT in Pakistan soon?
