Does the new MG deliver enough to compete in the British market?

Our Verdict

Can the MG Motor MG6, the company's first all-new car under Chinese ownership, hit its mark?

    The MG6 is now a greener proposition than ever before, but its bland cabin aesthetics are still letting the side down

    As uneven as the hatch, so an excellent chassis, big cabin, crude drivetrain and patchy finish

Wouldn't touch it with yours.

I expect the Chinese to play catch-up even quicker than Korea. At this stage, however, I would like to see some reassuring NCAP results before letting anyone I cared about drive a Chinese car, even one built in Britain.

Chinese cars like this, are in my book, even worse than Korean cars. I would never buy one.

Also is it just me or does that interior look like a cheap knock-off of some of Renault and BMWs latest designs?

Oh and that engine/ gearbox lineup has to be the very worse of any mainstream car currently on the market, what a joke! They haven't got a clue.

I quite like it. It's not very radical, it's not going to be top of the class, but it looks reasuringly average. And that's a promising start. Hyundai and Kia didn't start out as well as this.

Looks good. An inch bigger alloys would add to the appealing looks. With a slick 6 speed manual it could be a winner.

Leave this forum and never return.

Why are the words "near luxury brand" in my head as I read the report?

29 January 2010

It's a Chinese specification vehicle.

It's been built for the Chinese market.

It was road tested in China.

UK-built vehicles will have different specifications, build quality and powertrains.

Some posters obviously haven't got the attention span to fully read the article and just wanted to provoke with a knee-jerk reaction against the MG brand.

I think it will do well with the right build quality and the right engines.

And the right price, and the right suspension, and the right dealer network...
