First there was the GS, which along with the MG3
saw MG's UK sales rise by six per cent last year.
Designed for fun motoring, the MG3
offers buyers a wide choice of personalisation packs which allow you to add your own stamp on the car with different graphics, wheels, coloured mirror options and interiors.
If you choose the MG3
or the brand new MG ZS, there is no deposit to be paid.
That said, it's perfectly fine for negotiating the town and city traffic in which the MG3
is likely to be spending most of its time and, thanks to a well-balanced chassis, there is some driving enjoyment to be had.
This acquisition marks AEP's second transaction with ESJ Capital Partners and MG3
models in the range also come with loads of personalisation options, with graphic packs allowing drivers to customise their MG3
to their own taste and style.
But the MG3
is not a sports car and those characteristics probably wouldn't matter that much to the average driver.
The cars themselves - both the initial MG6 and the recent MG3
- were actually well designed (at Longbridge in fact) and drove well enough, but were let down by old-fashioned and thirsty engines which didn't fit the British market or local petrol prices.
While sales of the MG6 saloon/ hatchback have been modest, the MG3
was universally well received following its launch in 2013.
Still, because the MG3
looks to undercut many of the established names, this rather blended styling is perhaps to its credit.
MG, a China-based automaker, has upgraded its MG3
supermini for the United Kingdom market.
In addition he gets the chance to give the MG3
the ultimate test drive and races in one of the fastest MGs ever made.
