Thousands of F1 fans will be able to see the new MG3 at the British F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone on June 28-30, 2013.

The new MG3 has created a storm of interest following the recent unveiling of the full range of styling options available from launch.

Buyers will be able to have fun stamping their own character on their MG3, thanks to a personalization palette with 10 colour choices and a wide range of exterior graphics and interior finishes.

MG3, designed and engineered at the MG Birmingham plant, is a distinctive statement of modern British style and is designed to target young and young-at-heart buyers who want a really practical small car that is fun to buy, own and drive.

Exterior highlights include 16” Diamond cut alloy wheels, unique LED ‘hockey stick’ daytime running lights, sport-design bumper, side sill extensions, rear spoiler, sports-design rear valance, chrome exhaust finishers and MG insert headlamps.

Inside the MG3 is an easy-to-use air conditioning system, six-speaker audio, Bluetooth with audio streaming, DAB radio, USB/Aux input, automatic lights, automatic wipers, rear parking sensors, ‘ZERO’ design fabric seats and part-leather trim. 

This unique and contemporary style of the MG3 is the work of the 30 design staff and 300 engineers at SAIC’s UK Technical Centre at the MG Birmingham site in Longbridge, UK.

SAIC Motor is MG’s parent company and is the world’s eighth largest automotive company.

The MG3 will become the second in a new generation of MG vehicles to leave the assembly line at the Birmingham factory, following the introduction of the MG6 petrol and diesel range of GT fastbacks and Magnette four-door sports saloons.

Prices for the exciting MG3 range will be announced in August and the car will go on sale in September 2013.

“We have only just started to roll out the MG3 in the UK and already the reaction has been fantastic,” said Guy Jones, MG’s sales and marketing director. “We’ve even had people already putting their names down to secure one of the first cars.

“It’s distinctive, cheeky and will be a real fun car—the vast range of styling choices means the fun starts even when you’re ordering one. But at the same time it’s a very practical car and will offer one of the very best interior space packages in class,” said Jones.
