The car features a boxy design with a 3-door layout

While quirky and unlike anything else in the market, one can definitely say that the car looks contemporary in its own right. The car gets design features like LED daytime running lamps that run across the face of the vehicle and into the ORVMs along with connecting tail lamps. While the rest of the car is boxy, and not appealing in the traditional sense, it looks like something that people could get used to and even come to like over time. 

Standard Safety Features

The Comet is available with a variety of safety features

The younger crowd will appreciate the variety of bright, fashionable colour schemes and stickers that the car is available in. The MG Comet EV comes with safety features like Dual Front Airbags, ABS+ EBD, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, and Reverse parking camera and sensors among others. What will also be appealing is the car’s interior which looks very well-built and premium.
