Purpose

I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

MG grows as the market stagnates, thanks to the supermini MG3 and the All-New GS SUV.

MG Motor UK has hit the 2,000 sales mark for 2016 despite new car demand levelling in July.
Since the MG GS launched in June, customers have been flocking to dealerships and snapping up the latest addition even before the new registration plate in September. 

The sales of this affordable SUV have helped boost MG’s overall sales up by 15% from last year (year-to-date). The super-fun supermini MG3 has also continued to make a contribution.

Trade association, The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), described 2016 as having a healthy start but the market is now showing signs of cooling. Despite this, MG Motor sold 305 units in July – which is a 28% increase on last year. The industry average for this month was 0.06% and MG’s year-to-date figure was five times more than the industry average of 2.82%.
Interest in the brand, an affordable line-up, and great deals are all contributing to the continued success of MG. The quarter three deals currently running are as follows*:

  • MG is offering an £850 deposit contribution on all MG GS models
  • The SUV is available on 0% APR representative finance. This is available up to five years with a minimum 20% deposit

  • A £900 deposit contribution is available on all MG3 models
  • The MG3 is available on 0% APR representative finance. This is available up to five years with minimum 20% deposit

Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing for MG, said: “We’re so pleased that the year is continuing to go as well as it started for us. The MG GS has been a great addition to the model line-up and we’re thrilled to see that customers aren’t waiting for the new registration month to get their hands on it.”
