Three is the magic number for MG

Three is the magic number for MG

MG has unveiled the prices and specifications of its affordable new MG3 supermini and every model is available for less than £10,000.

All the variants come with LED front lights, an electronic hill hold system, six airbags, electronic stability control, corner brake control and traction control, while all but the entry model MG3 3TIME are equipped with a DAB audio system.

The MG3 3TIME is £8,399 and it has a CD player with MP3 compatibility and Aux-in facility. The top-of-the-range MG3 3STYLE is priced at £9,999 and includes 16" "Diamond" alloy wheels and a sports body styling pack with rear boot spoiler and side sill extensions. It also comes with cruise control, automatic lights and windscreen wipers and rear parking sensors.

In between these two specifications are the MG3 3FORM and MG3 3FORM SPORT. The former costs £9,299 and adds air-con, Bluetooth and audio streaming and a leather MG-design steering wheel with built-in audio controls.

The SPORT version has all this and more with a sports body styling pack and 16" "Carousel" alloy wheels. The price for this one is £9,549. The low prices across the range could mean owners have a few pounds left in the bank to pay for their car insurance and breakdown cover costs.
