The MG Baojun 510 will make its first appearance in India sometime in the second half of 2022. The length of the 510 SUV is 4.2 metres, and its wheelbase is 2.55 metres, putting it on level with rivals in its class. It looks a lot like the larger MG Hector, with which it shares many design cues.

The front fascia of the MG Baojun 510 includes swept-back headlights, a large grille, and thin LED daytime running lights. When viewed from the side, the car’s bulging wheel arches, sloping rear roofline, and boomerang-shaped tail lamps create a continuous curve.

The new Baojun 510 will likely use a 1.5-liter four-cylinder four-valve gasoline engine paired with a continuously variable transmission. The engine’s highest power output is 77 kW, and its maximum torque is 135 Nm between 3600 and 5200 rpm. As a result, the transmission’s smart operation modes—including regular, economy, and sport—are expected to come standard.

The MG Baojun 510 will face competition from the likes of the currently available Mahindra Marazzo, Nissan Kicks, Mahindra Thar, and Toyota Yaris Black Limited Edition.
