MG Motor UK MG3 1.5 VTi-TECH 3Style 5d (2015/15) - Owner Review

Spacious beyond belief, really feels roomy. Despite high emissions which will become irrelevant when the taxes change, exceptional ownership costs, low insurance big deal maker with two new drivers in household.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Different, more interested in driving than listening to biased journalists?

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
So far so good, cuts a dash..

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. Exceptional value for money and rewarding to drive. I am MG biased owning a 1949 MG Y Type, a BGT and selling a ZTT to buy this. I've had Alfas and Focus in the past and the MG3 is perfectly equal in terms of driver feel.

What are you likely to buy next?
If they keep this up then more of the same. I like the car more every time I go out in it, each day feels more like I made a good decision. If you like driving you'll love the 3.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Exceptional to drive, once you get your head around the sporting chassis. Can be firm but it wallowy and very rewarding. Have previously owned classic mini and mx5 and this car is an extension of them, all the fun at manageable speed. Feels fast when it isn't, which is way more fun than the opposite!

What's it like to park?
Doddle. PDC, great mirrors, need I say more?

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing significant, but rear wiper blade has rigor mortis, will replace it!

What's most practical about your car?
Spacious beyond belief, really feels roomy. Despite high emissions which will become irrelevant when the taxes change, exceptional ownership costs, low insurance big deal maker with two new drivers in household.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Fully loaded,DAB my favourite but Bluetooth and cruise equally useful.
