Zippy, nippy, and stylish, the MG3 is a great value hatchback with a lot more zing than many of its competitors. With a well-deserved update to bring it from attractive to irresistible, the MG3 now shows off a wealth of features while upholding incredible affordability. MG is so confident in the reliability of their smart-looking supermini that a generous manufacturer’s warranty comes generously tied in.
The allure of the MG3 is highlighted by its peppy 1.5-litre VTI-tech engine and responsive, slick-action manual transmission. There’s good reason for the single choice of engine across the MG range; it is an absolute pleasure to drive when you experience its precise handling and refinement that exist in cars well above its price class.
A fine-tuned suspension heightens the MG3’s poise for acceleration and sharp manoeuvres, reminiscent of the sports car characteristics that are imbued into MG’s heritage. The MG3 also succeeds in allowing you to find comfort when taking it further with fully adjustable seat and steering wheel settings. A solid road grip and low body roll will enhance the sporty feel of the MG3, but if you decide to turn to its performance as a day-to-day commuter, the MG3 will cover this base too with an economy of over 42mpg.
As one of the best-value supermini hatchbacks on the market, the MG3 upholds this promise in more than just its driving profile and features. With a design that’s more than just a pretty face, the MG3 comes with a broad array of customisation options, from colour profiles to wheel rims and trim levels – including the Excite, Exclusive and Exclusive Nav. What’s more, the MG3 sits in a low insurance bracket, making its day-to-day premiums an attractive buying option.
A balanced, sportified styling sets the MG3 apart from its rivals, but this alluring first impression is found inside too, with a roominess that deepens its value tremendously. A 285-litre boot space is more than welcome within its supermini category, but an increase to 1262-litres with the seats down takes the cake. A great deal of passenger and driver space is available in the MG3, and well protected - with six airbags, tyre pressure monitoring, hill control assistant, and stability assistant on standby.
The MG3 takes its value to a new level with an interior that provides all that you could ask for in its bracket. A modern, easily navigable 8” touchscreen integrated with Apple CarPlay/Andriod Auto comes as standard, offering the best of your phone’s handiness on the big screen; just one of many up-market features that come tied into its generous bundle. High-mounted tail lamps, USB and aux sockets, and LED daytime running lights are a few more standard additions to get you even more excited. Moving to the MG3 Exclusive, your value is expressed further through cruise control, reversing camera, sports seats and a boomier sound system.
