MG 6 now offers ‘more MG for your money’

MG has given its 6 large hatchback a complete overhaul – four years after the model was first launched – to make it more appealing to budget-focused customers.

With rivals from Ford, Vauxhall and Skoda cited as its main competitors, the new 6 majors on offering the most bang for your buck, with this hatchback offering much higher levels of standard specification than its predecessor, with prices that have been slashed by up to £3,000 – now starting from £13,995.

MG has also slimmed down the 6 range. While previously buyers could choose from petrol and diesel engines along with hatchback and saloon body styles, the Magnette saloon and the petrol engine have both been phased out. Other changes include stronger acceleration from the 148bhp 1.9-litre diesel engine plus greater fuel economy and lower emissions.

The new car is now capable of sprinting to 60mph in a reasonable 8.4 seconds, and can return 61.4mpg. CO2 emissions of 119g/km mean that car tax will set buyers back £30 per year. MG has also given the car sharper styling inside and out, along with improved levels of standard kit.

The entry-level S model is available for £13,995, while the mid-range TS weighs in at £16,195. Meanwhile, range-topping TL trim costs £17,995. All models include heated front seats and 16-inch alloy wheels, while TS trim adds part leather-effect trim, rear parking sensors, cruise control and automatic lights and windscreen wipers, plus a touchscreen media system with a digital radio, Bluetooth and sat nav. TL trim, however, adds luxuries such as full leather electric seats, xenon headlights and a reversing camera.

The updated MG 6 is on sale now.
