News : MG’s charity drive
If you’ve yet to drive an MG6 for size (and if so, why not… it’s not as if there aren’t enough opportunities for you), then MG has just come up with another reason for you. A fleet of the latest MG cars is touring the country in an initiative which hopes to raise thousands of pounds for two worthy charities.
Thirty MGs models are touring Britain in ‘The Great British Charity Test Drive’ in support of Macmillan Cancer Support and Help for Heroes. As the cars tour the country they will call in at motorway service stations and places of interest. They will also call in at most MG dealerships around Britain.
Anyone over the age of 25 who takes a test drive before the end of September will be able to nominate one of the two charities which will then receive a £5 donation from MG Motor UK. A great reason to try out an MG6 yourself – and maybe lobby your dealer for the earliest possible launch of the MG3 supermini and diesel-engined cars.
This comes on the back of the recent news that UK customers will be offered a special three-year fixed price servicing cover for £199 on all new MG6 models sold during the new ’61 plate month of September. MG6 GT fastback range starts at £15,459 for the S model, £16,995 for the SE and £18,995 for the TSE.
AROnline has already tested the MG6 and came away reasonably impressed at the value, pace and especially dynamics of the recently-launched car.
