MG dealers will be offering buyers a chance to pick up a new 6 for £250 per month on its new contract hire scheme, MG Lease. The scheme will be offered throughout MG’s dealer network, and will be initially offered on the MG6 fastback in S and SE form, with the TSE to follow ‘within a few months’.
A three-year 30,000-mile contract hire agreement on an MG6 fastback S, including metallic paint, has a first payment of £734.97 + VAT and 35 monthly payments of £249.99 + VAT. These rates are supported by ALD Automotive, Europe’s second largest contract hire provider, which manages more than 900,000 vehicles worldwide.
Richard Bourton, MG Motor UK’s Regional Operations Manager in charge of MG Lease, said: ‘There is a huge potential for the MG6 to be marketed to the ‘user chooser’ company drivers who want to be seen to be driving something different from their colleagues.’ He added, somewhat mischievously, considering the 6 isn’t a rival to Ford and Vauxhall’s D-segment cars, ‘The distinctive MG6 will certainly stand out from the crowd in the company car park which is often dominated by Mondeo and Insignia models. I think the MG will have big appeal.’
This move comes in addition to the zero per cent deal on S-trim MG6 GT models (with a minimum 40 per cent deposit and payments from £154.55 spread over 60 months) and 3.7 per cent APR scheme available on all MG6 GT and MG6 Magnette models (with a 10 per cent deposit and payments from £249.00 spread over 60 months) offered to private purchasers which were announced earlier this week. Hopefully, all three deals will lift the MG6’s currently unexceptional sales figures…
