MG Motors have the tendency to develop products that strike a great balance between affordability, performance and practicality.
MG5 EV Estate comes packed with practical features and decent specs at an affordable price. There are not many EVs out there with the Estate (Station Wagon) body type. This lends a different layer of practicality which might be missing in modern electric cars because they are all aiming to be too unique, at least in terms of styling. Nevertheless, it might well be quite convenient to declare the MG5 EV as too subtle.
