MG3: Customise your buy

2013-06-13 14:51
The MG3 will be the second of a new generation of MG vehicles to leave the assembly line in Birmingham, central England, since the introduction of the 6 range of GT fastbacks and Magnette sedans.

The model will arrive in South Africa later in 2013 with at least two more new products joining the range in 2014. It will be powered by a 77kW, four-cylinder, VTi-TECH petrol engine and drive through a five-speed manual gearbox.


MG3 customers will be able to personalise both the exterior and interior of the new hatchback.

The model will be launched in three trim levels, with 10 colour options and a range of graphic packs.

Depending on the model choice, exterior highlights include 16” alloy rims, sport-design bumpers, sill extensions, rear spoiler, chromed exhausts and headlight surrounds.

Inside, the MG3 is available with aircon, six speakers, Bluetooth with audio streaming, USB/auxilary input socket, auto headlights and wipers and rear parking sensors. The car will have part fabric/part leather upholstery.

Roof, side and bonnet graphics will allow owners to personalise their car. Interior trim, wheels, vents, surrounds and mats will all be available in a choice of design

MG UK’s sales and marketing director, Guy Jones, said: “Sitting alongside the MG6 models it strengthens our range and will give us an even bigger target audience. Nowadays the possibility to stamp your own personal style on a car is widely appealing and the MG3 offers just that prospect.”
