The newly revised 2015 model year MG6 is available now priced from £13,995, making it substantially cheaper than the outgoing model. MG also claims it’s much better equipped, too.
From the outside, the car retains much of its original silhouette but now wears revised running lights, headlights, grille and bumpers.
The interior styling has also been tweaked, with upgraded materials, a new instrument cluster, an electronic parking brake that releases automatically, and the company’s new MG Touch system.
Developed in conjunction with NNG iGo and standard on all but the entry-level model, the system comprises a seven-inch touch-screen that provides access to DAB digital radio, Bluetooth, Mirrorlink and a series of apps, including a European navigation system that also includes 3D landmarks, speed limits, signpost information and full UK post codes.
MG says equipment levels have been upgraded across the range, with the base S model featuring heated front seats, 16-inch alloy wheels, a new electronic differential, and LED running lights.
The mid-range TS model adds part faux-leather seats, rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and more.
The top-spec TL model, meanwhile, includes full leather seats, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, rear-view camera, dual-zone climate control, electric seat adjustment and a new chrome grille.
Power now comes only from the 1.9-litre DTi-Tech diesel engine, the previous model’s turbocharged petrol unit having been dropped.
The diesel develops 150PS and 350Nm of torque from 1,800rpm, just as before, although CO2 emissions have been reduced by 10 g/km to 119 g/km, while combined cycle economy improves to 61.4 mpg.
Performance has also received a boost, with the 0-60mph time dropping by half a second to 8.4 seconds.
Prices for the new MG6 start at £13,995 for the MG6 S. The mid-range MG6 TS is priced at £16,195, while the range-topping TL weighs in at a competitive £17,995.
