Even entry-level cars are comfortably equipped, featuring Bluetooth connectivity and LED headlights and daytime running lights. Step up to Excite spec and you’ll get to prod a crisp eight-inch colour touchscreen with DAB radio and steering wheel audio controls. Satellite navigation isn’t yet available, but you do get Apple CarPlay to use your smartphone’s apps on the screen. To get cruise control, six speakers and a reversing camera, you’ll head towards the range-topping Exclusive trim.
Walk into our MG dealership with £10,000 and we won’t take it all off you. Explore models start from just £9,495, while the higher trim levels cost £11,295 and £12,795 respectively. Value is still the calling card of the MG 3, and you’ll be able to choose a five-year no deposit, 0% APR deal to keep costs down. All models also now feature a seven-year warranty, and very few companies will offer that.
The MG 3 has always been quite a handsome car, but this facelifted model ups the appeal. With steeply angled headlights and a large grille, it’s far more aggressive and sporty looking than the outgoing car. Within these new looks, MG has managed to retain the space of the interior and the capacious boot.
These changes should help the MG 3 sell in larger numbers. MG says it’s confident that the car will fly out of dealerships and, if you like what you’ve seen so far, please book a test drive. The new MG 3 will be available to buy from Hartwell from September 2018.
