MG Motor UK has issued a teaser image (above) of the revised MG6, which will go on sale next month.
The company claims that the new model offers major improvements in every area over the original version, which was launched in 2011.
The updated MG6’s 1.9-litre DTi-TECH diesel engine has been developed to give lower CO2 output and improved mpg, while comprehensive updates have been made to the styling. The latest MG6 also features interior upgrades and enhanced equipment levels which include what the company says will be “arguably… one of the best intelligent infotainment systems of any car in its class” and a “state-of-the-art navigation system [which] will also set new standards.”
Matthew Cheyne, MG’s Head of Marketing, said: “This is a totally different car to the original MG6 with a host of new technologies and major advances in every area. We will reveal the full story and prices when the car is unveiled shortly. But the new MG6 is a big leap forward from the original car which has been the result of thousands of hours of dedicated work from our designers and engineers.”
Cheyne believes that the revised MG6 should have a broad appeal to both retail and business customers, adding: “The MG6 was always a comfortable, roomy car and offered rewarding driving, but the [latest revisions] take the car to a different level again with a host of great improvements and advances, most of which have never been seen before on an MG.”
MG Motor UK will be releasing full details of the latest MG6’s performance figures, pricing and specifications shortly before the car goes on sale in April but, following the relative success of the pricing structure adopted for the MG3, the company may follow a similar strategy for the revised MG6…
