Though it's only been on sale in Australia since April 2013, MG's MG6 has already been on sale overseas for four years.
That means it's well overdue for a facelift to smooth out the crow's feet and tighten the skin, and these photos released overnight show the freshly-updated MG6 that will go on sale next year.
The facelifted MG6's new front end features reshaped air inlets, integrated LED daytime running lamps and a slightyl tweaked upper grille, and is topped off by new headlamp clusters with revised internal 'jewellery'.
Alloy wheel designs for the top-spec GT variant shown here have also been updated, while around the back there's a new bumper design and tail light lensing.
All sheetmetal is unchanged, and the interior will also be largely familiar - albeit built with better materials, according to MG.
One major change to the cabin however is the provision of an electronic handbrake, which will free up more space on the centre console. The touchscreen infotainment system in the MG6 GT will also be upgraded
Mechanically, the MG6 will continue to be offered with a 1.8 litre petrol engine , which produces 118kW at 5500rpm and 215Nm between 1750 and 4500rpm
A five-speed manual continues to be the only transmission available, and power is taken to the front wheels only.
There's no word as yet on when the facelifted MG6 will arrive in Australia.
