MG3 refreshed for 2016

The MG3 hatchback has received updates for 2016.

The latest version of the 5-door city car will be available to buy next week, and offers customers better fuel consumption, lower tax and an updated personalisation range - which includes the launch of new combinations and roof colours.

The supermini, which now benefits from a more economical 124g/km of CO2 and a stop-start EU6 engine, also comes with a new chrome grille 'to complement the MG family face'. The MG3's Red Rose and Hello Yellow paints are now available with selected roof colour combinations of white or black.

Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing for MG, said: "The MG3 has continued its success from the day it launched in 2013 and, with all that it offers, it's easy to see why so many people have fallen for our fun-packed and stylish supermini. Now we're giving customers a little bit more, with the addition of some great features, but still keeping the price low; making it great value for money and setting us apart from our competitors.

The MG3 EU6 is the latest car to be launched from the Longbridge site. Customers can choose from the four models starting with the MG3 3Time which costs £8,399 OTR, the MG3 3Form from £9,599, the MG3 3Form Sport from £9,899, an MG3 3Style model from £10,49 and MG3 3Style Lux - which comes with the addition of leather seats and is priced from £10,999 OTR.
