One of Britain’s leading car rental firms will soon be running the MG6. Avis Rent a Car has taken delivery of 100 MG6 GTs and MG6 Magnettes. It is the first order of its kind for MG. The cars will be put on Avis’s national car hire fleet and customers will soon be able to hire the MGs. Both the MG6 GT and the MG6 Magnette are powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged engine.
The cars are designed, engineered at MG Motor’s plant at MG Birmingham where final assembly also takes place. Anthony Ainsworth, Commercial Director of Avis Rent a Car, said: ‘We are extremely pleased to see the iconic MG marque back again and know that our customers will be delighted to be offered the chance to drive an MG when they hire a car from us.’
Guy Jones, MG Motor UK’s Sales and Marketing Director, said: ‘We are delighted that such an important company as Avis will be promoting the MG6 as part of its fleet.’
