The MG was once a famous carmaker in the UK but is now based in China and the MG6 is a British designed and engineered car that is aimed at reinstating the firm to glory once more. And, to be fair, the MG6 makes a decent stab at doing so: the handling is very good since the suspension is tuned to British roads and there's plenty of space on board too. In addition, the car is priced to sell and there's a lot going for it.
There are just two engines to choose from, a very good 1.9 litre DTi turbodiesel and a 1.8 litre turbo petrol that produces 158bhp and is coupled to a five-speed gearbox. The petrol engine will return around 36mpg while having CO2 emissions of 184g/km. The first thing to note is that the MG6 is much larger than many of its competitors - while it's aimed at the likes of the Ford Focus it actually matches the Ford Mondeo for its dimensions. The handling is actually quite impressive thanks to the suspension being tuned for British roads and the steering feels quite involved with good feedback.
Indeed, thanks to the suspension and antiroll bars the MG6 is a rewarding drive and certainly better than some of its rivals. The suspension also manages to iron out the rough roads, particularly potholes. The interior is well laid out and designed with plenty of space for everyone on board, especially tall adults in the rear seats. Also, the six speed gearbox is a good performer at speed on the motorway which helps to make it a smooth and comfortable drive. The vehicle is also a practical choice thanks to its big boot which measures 472litres which will increase to 924 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.
