This isn’t your grandfather’s MG. These days, the longstanding British brand is part of the huge Chinese conglomerate SAIC – and much has changed. Instead of turning out racy roadsters and sporty saloons, it focuses on sensible family hatchbacks and SUVs, aiming to undercut more established competition by offering plenty for your money. The MG3 was one of its first models under this new ownership to enter the UK, and it remains the entry point to the range, costing less to lease than other supermins like the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo. It’s getting on a bit in terms of design and technology, but the MG3 still offers a smartly styled, well-priced and well-equipped hatchback package that even throws in a decent amount of driving enjoyment for good measure.
