MG Roadster SUV Is Further Proof Of Humanity's Decline

Illustration for article titled MG Roadster SUV Is Further Proof Of Humanity's Decline

If you're in need of definitive evidence that human civilization is on a downward spiral, look no further than this.


AutoExpress reports that the famed MGB roadster is due to make a comeback in a big way. And by big, I mean that it's going to be a crossover SUV, not a small sports car. They have some concepts of how the car is supposed to look, but think of the MG Icon concept from the April Beijing Motor Show but without a roof and you'll be on the right track.

"MG hopes to appeal to a new generation of enthusiasts with this modern-day interpretation of legendary sports cars like the MGB," AutoExpress says. "Our exclusive images show how the car could look, and it's set to be a huge hit for the reborn company."

It's a hit alright. I feel like I was hit across the face with a baseball bat when I saw this.

On days like this, boys and girls, I wish I was writing for The Onion and could simply make this kind of thing up as hilarious satire. Unfortunately, it is real. I guess it makes sense — someone has to build something that competes with the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet.

Anyway, nobody tell BMW that MG is doing this. I have this weird feeling they will rush out to build droptop versions of the X5, X6, X3 and X1.

I've seen a Murano Cross Cabriolet in person. After the heebie-jeebies subsided, I imagined what would happen in an accident. The image was of the vehicle sliding across the pavement on it's non-roof grinding the occupants into a tasteless paste.
