MG X-Motion concept unveiled

The MG X-Motion concept has been given a full debut at the 2018 Beijing motor show. Stylistically, the concept takes themes established by last year's E-Motion electric coupe and scales them to suit a crossover. Up front, the X-Motion features a fascia heavily inspired by Mazda, while the "stellar field" grille insert calls to mind a number of Mercedes-Benz models. There's also more than a hint of Infiniti in the profile and headlights.
