Why Lease An MG3?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
Because the MG3 costs so little to lease, it ends up being compared to tiny city cars more than full-size superminis. And in that context, it’s simply one of the most spacious cars you can get for the money. In terms of both sheer size of the boot and passenger compartment – as well as the provision of in-cabin storage cubbies and cupholders – it acquits itself well. The 285-litre boot capacity is right up there with supermini class leaders, and it can be extended to a useful 1262 litres by dropping the back seats down. If maximum space for minimum outlay is a priority, you should look very closely at leasing an MG3.
The MG3’s outdated petrol engine does it no favours here, with about 43mpg fuel economy the best you’re likely to see. In the real world, it’s likely to be less and that’s because the 1.5-litre petrol engine needs to be worked hard to deliver its performance. On the plus side, you’ll be paying less to lease an MG3 in the first place than you would be for pretty much any of its competitors. And insurance and servicing costs are also pretty low – so you could very well find it all evens out depending on what sort of mileage you expect to be doing.
MG3 HatchbackThe MG3 is only offered in 5-door hatchback form – as is also the case with the vast majority of its city-car and supermini rivals.
High Performance ModelsAlthough the British-owned MG of old was always associated with sports cars, in its new incarnation under Chinese ownership, the brand is focused more on sensible and well priced offerings, so there’s no hot-hatch MG3.
The MG3 Vs Competitors
The MG3 is manufactured by a huge Chinese company that puts out millions of vehicles a year, using solid, simple and proven parts, so there should be no reliability worries. It also has a very long 7-year warranty.
There’s 285 litres with all seats in place and 1262 when the rears are folded, which are pretty good numbers for this size of car.
Just 2 – Excite and Exclusive Nav. As the latter’s name suggests, it adds standard satnav, as well as a better stereo, a reversing camera, cruise control and sports seats.
Yes, both trims have rear parking sensors, while the Exclusive Nav also gets a reversing camera with guidelines.
It’s much more practical than the city cars with which it competes on price, and pretty much as practical as superminis from more upmarket brands that cost several thousand pounds more.
The MG3 appeals as a great-value hatchback that manages to mix some attractive styling and a fun driving experience with its more down-to-earth practicality credentials.
