A 95 year reputation built on sporty and distinctive cars, MGs are both affordable and a joy to drive. The new MG3 is no different, it’s one of the best value hatchbacks on the current market and boasts a wealth of features to make your drive fun and distinctive.


The first thing to notice about new MG3 is its dynamic new front-end. The eye-catching “star-rider” grille perfectly frames MG’s famous octagonal logo, with expressive headlights and LED daytime running lights completing the look.

New MG3 is also one of the most customisable cars and is one of the best value hatchbacks in its segment, with customers having the choice of six distinctive colours, twelve graphics packs, and unique door mirror caps.


New MG3 has one of the most spacious cabins in its class, with class-leading head and leg room for five people. The boot space is also impressive, with a staggering 285 litres of capacity.

The New MG3 range also comes packed with a host of exciting technology, including Bluetooth telephone and audio streaming and USB as standard, with an 8” touchscreen and Apple CarPlay TM available on Excite and Exclusive versions.


New MG3 is packed with the latest technology – from the 8″ colour touchscreen with Apple CarPlay TM to its distinctive LED daytime running lamps, DAB radio and Bluetooth audio streaming – all within a compact and stylish package.

You’ve got your own style and sound so amplify it with your New MG3 – all without breaking the bank. The MG3 is one of the most affordable hatchbacks both to buy and insure thanks to its ultra-low insurance group 7/8E.
