The new range of MG models, that have been designed and engineered at our 69-acre site in Longbridge, Birmingham, include the MG3 and MG6. The MG6 was the first in a new generation of MG cars and is a contemporary fastback, specifically designed to meet the varied needs of our busy customers. Launched initially in 2011, and followed by the new MG6 in 2015, it encompasses everything you'd expect from great British brand. The MG3, which was launched in 2013, is a supermini packed with more fun, practicially and specification than any of its rivals, and at just a fraction of the cost.
The iconic British MG brand can trace its history back to 1924 and is world famous for making stylish cars that are fun to drive and own and are sold at remarkably affordable prices. Modern MGs, which are designed, engineered and finally assembled in Longbridge, Birmingham, continue this long and rich MG tradition.
Two cars currently come off the Longbridge assembly lines: the MG6 and the MG3 with several models planned for the immediate and longer-term future.
The MG6 is a medium-sized fastback offering fantastic dynamic handling, high levels of interior comfort and a tremendously spacious cabin area with a cavernous boot. The MG6 won the category ‘£17,500 and under’ in the Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Awards in 2015. It also won the 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Best Handling Award.
The MG3 is a new generation supermini which brings fun and style to this sector of the market at very affordable prices. The 1.5-litre petrol-powered car can also be personalised, so owners have the option of giving their car their own style-statement.
