Civic send off for first MG6 dealer demonstrators
MG dealers were given a civic send off after they collected the first UK production MG6 models to mark the start of a new era for the iconic brand.
The dealers collected the first MG6 demonstrators from MG Motor UK’s factory at the MG Birmingham site then drove to Birmingham’s Council House where they were waved off by Mike Whitby, the leader of the city council.
MG dealers will now start taking formal orders for the all-new MG – the first in 16 years – and the first deliveries to customers will begin next month.
The sports fastback model was designed and engineered by a team of 300 professionals at the UK plant.
Three trim models of the 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol MG6 are available with prices ranging from £15,495 to £18,995 for the top-of-the-range highly-equipped TSE model.
As well as have a very high level of standard equipment, the MG6 has particularly low levels of insurance. The entry model MG6 S is rated 13E while the SE and TSE are 14E – comparable rivals are several categories above, making the MG particularly attractive from an insurance perspective.
