MG Motor UK might be preparing for the arrival of the new MG3, but slow sales of the MG6 range are still a concern for the company’s 30 UK dealers. With that in mind, the company has launched what it describes as a 0% VAT deal across the range, resulting in some tempting drive away deals for those who fancy one of the UK’s rarest cars.
The offer, which will run through July and August, is valid across the entire MG6 range, including the new DCI-Tech turbodiesels, and is described as the ‘0% VAT – No Exclusions’ deal. It will result in discounts of up to £3601. The entry level model, the MG6 GT petrol model in S trim, had a recommended on-the-road price of £15,455, but this is now cut to £12,968.58 – a saving of £2,486.42.
The top-of-the-range petrol model MG6 Magnette, which had a recommended on-the-road price of £20,350, will now cost £16,981.92 – a saving of £3,368.08. On DTi-Tech diesel models, the S trim, which previously cost £16,995, is now available for £13,808.58 – a saving of £3186.42.
By way of comparison, a Skoda Octavia 2.0TDI CR SE is around £18,000 via a broker; a Rapid 1.6TDI CR SE will cost you around £13,000 from the same broker and a Vauxhall Astra 2.0CDTi 16v Ecoflex can be had for £16,000 if you shop around. So that makes the larger MG6 good – but not brilliant – value at these discounted prices and still a lot of car for the money.
