MG3 and MG3 Hybrid+ review

The great-value MG3 hatchback makes a triumphant return. This small but mighty car makes a powerful statement with its sporty and distinctive looks – and with a host of fun and innovative features to go with it, it’s no wonder this car has people talking!

Under the hood

MG adds to the range with the option of a new powerful hybrid engine in the MG3 Hybrid+, expanding your powertrain options. Each MG3 model comes with a 1.5-litre combustion engine or a 100kW electric motor in the MG3 Hybrid+ – both of which guarantee an efficient and smooth drive.

Practical matters

With a range of paint options available – Arctic White, Black Pearl, Southwark Silver and Brixton Blue – along with a sporty body design, the MG3 has a unique and charismatic look that extends to its driving performance, bringing the joy back to driving.

Stand out from the crowd with the 16-inch ‘Comet’ diamond cut alloy wheels, and with the MG3’s excellent firm suspension, it handles beautifully, so you’ll feel steady wherever you go. What’s more, enjoy an even more secure drive with the MG3’s array of safety features, including an anti-lock braking system, electronic brakeforce distribution, electronic stability programme, rear parking sensors for those tricky spaces and LED headlights that reliably reveal the route ahead.

Enjoy a smooth – and quieter – cruise around town in the MG3 Hybrid+. The electric motor allows you to drive on all-electric power at low speeds, so you can enjoy a more peaceful and eco-conscious drive.

The ins and outs

Modern, refreshed and fun, the MG3 has something for everyone and assures an exciting and entertaining journey.

The 8-inch colour touchscreen compiles all your connectivity needs into one place with integrated Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connection. Enjoy your favourite radio show, podcast or playlist on the four-speaker audio system (six-speaker audio system in the Exclusive Nav model), all in the comfort of the high-quality fabric upholstery – your travels will be fun-filled, spacious and comfortable.

Tailor every function of the MG3 to your driving preference with the six-way adjustable driver’s seat, and pack everything you need for your trips in the many convenient storage areas dotted around the cabin space of the MG3, including door bins, phone compartments, two cupholders and storage between the seats. This excellent cabin space gives way to the impressive 293 litres of boot space in this small but mighty car.

This supermini is not to be underestimated. The MG3 is packed full of fun features that translate to its exciting driving performance. Make it truly yours through personalisation of the body colour, adjustable settings and choice of engine.
