We’ve noticed that MG has been engaging in a lot of advertising lately and it has peaked our interest to see what all the fuss is about. What has changed and what’s new with this once very British car maker (now owned by Auto Shanghai). MG stands for Morris Garages and the brand dates back to 1924. For baby boomers and older generations, the MG was the sports car of dreams and aspirations – the TA and TC especially. The two-door, two-seater, low to the ground car which grew from a soft-top convertible to a number of hard-tops over time. In the 1970s it was all about the MGB.
Enough of reminiscing and flash-backs that was way back when. Fast forward to 2020-21 and what??? At Jade Car Loans we take an interest in the complete motor vehicle market so we were keen to see what the new generation MG has to offer our customers. The current advertising campaign appears to be associated with some great price offers. Match that with a Jade cheap interest rate car loan and that could be your new vehicle totally sorted.
Current MG Collection
The MG range currently available on the Australian market consists of a light hatch and a compact SUV with variants of each. MG appears to be ‘reading the market’ with the SUV.
For buyers that want a smart city runabout and for young drivers that want a small, inexpensive car, the light hatch will be welcomed. Especially as several other car makers seem to have ceased availability of this category in Australia as so many buyers turn to SUVs. The price range is in that very affordable category, especially for a vehicle with the pedigree and instantly recognisable badge that MG represents.
The light hatch, the MG3, is available in 3 variants: Core, Core with Nav and Excite. All have the 4 cylinder 1.5 litre petrol engine, 4 speed auto transmission, 5 doors with handy hatch, 6 airbags, ABS, 4 or 6 speaker sound system dependent on model with Bluetooth and USB, 60:40 rear seat folding and have a Euro 5 for emissions rating. Available in a fun range of colours including yellow, red, blue which will likely appeal to many buyers in this category.
At an advertised starting price for the Core under $17,000 plus delivery, dealer etc charges, the MG3 looks like one to consider for those that want a light hatch with a level of sports heritage and panache. The Core with Nav and Excite variants have added features and step up in price. Refer to the Jade Car Loans calculator to see how estimated repayments increase with the advertised pricing on the 3 variants.
The market has turned and MG has turned with it to SUVs. They offer 4 SUV models with variants in each so you’ll need to study the specs and features in order to select which best suits your requirements. The MG ZS EV Essence is the brands electric vehicle and presents an interesting package to consider for a currently advertised drive away price point under $44,000.
As expected, the other models are at lesser price points with the MG ZST with its two variants – Excite and Essence – starting at just under the $30,000 mark. The ZST has a 3 cylinder, 1.3 litre turbo petrol engine, with 6 speed transmission. Plenty of safety features to meet the expectations of a family drive buyer and the space and style for the business buyer. In a very crowded compact SUV market, the MG could be worth including on your test drive list.
