Write up of a test drive from AR Online:

Interesting to note that they had decided to go with the pre-facelift design of passenger airbag.

Use of walnut in different places.

That apart Mrs Lincoln, did you enjoy the play

This was from 2007 (although the two comments are from this year)

Wonder if it still looks like this now or if they have made radical changes?

And, to be honest, front end?

Personally, I like the newer front end better than their previous one. It sort of gives the car a smoother and more modern look.

Yep, I can see what you are saying there - it is better than the previous one!

But I still don't think it looks as nice as the original 75 MK1.....!

I like both the external and interior look, brings the car upto date, but just wish the dash had more wood.

Most probably not. SAIC copied just the outer shaping when constructing this car. They didn't have access to any plans back then. The MG7 has been build with the old tooling by formerly NAC, meanwhile bought by SAIC.

Looking at the exterior, I kind of like it from a "Modern" persepctive, but I much prefer the 75's "Classic" lines. The interior is nice, but again, from a modern perspective. The thing is, that this Car is designed for Modern buyers etc, so if you kind of take that into account, its a cool looking car.

I do think though, the front has a rather "Audi" feel to it, which isnt bad in itself, but to us who love the look of the 75's front end, would be a turn off.

The 75 is now a part of history, it was never going to be recreated in its former style, this is good for us owners as we get to keep a unique and beautiful marque, while the rest of the world get to look on with envious eyes as their £30k plasti kits rattle and creak in the sun and cold......:p

I am personally glad they did not do a nut and bolt copy of the 75 / MG range, as it would make our cars just run of the mill, while the 75 may live on in a new form, we have the original and best versions :D :D :D
Upgrades:

Fitted Electric Memory Seat, Leather Cubby Lid, Wood Dash, Message Centre.

Carl, I agree with you on these statements.
