A revamped MG 6 will go on sale in April, with the most significant upgrade claimed to be to the 1.9-litre DTi-TECH diesel engine.
However, MG has not yet issued full details of the upgraded engine, saying that exact economy and emissions figures will be revealed at the car’s launch. MG has not said whether the current 1.8-litre turbo petrol engine will be part of the new line-up.
In addition, MG says “comprehensive updates have been made to the body styling of the car” plus “interior upgrades and enhanced equipment levels”. MG also claims that “a state-of-the-art navigation system will also set new standards”.
The only picture revealed so far is of a new-look headlamp.
The MG 6 went on sale in the UK in 2011, earning plaudits for its ride and handling characteristics but struggling for sales. At one time, discounts of nearly 50% on pre-registered cars were available.
Matthew Cheyne, MG’s Head of Marketing, said: “This is a totally different car to the original MG6 with a host of new technologies and major advances in every area.
“We will reveal the full story and prices when the car is unveiled shortly. But the New MG6 is a big leap forward from the original car which has been the result of thousands of hours of dedicated work from our designers and engineers.”
