Blog: MG TF – what hope does it have?

OVERHEARD a conversation in the office today about the MG TF. Between disgusting sniggers, it seems that the journos discussing the car will be taking the negative approach in print, pushing it as an old and decrepid product for all they are worth. And all this without driving it beforehand.

To say I am disappointed is an understatement. To add that I am surprised would be an untruth. I think we all see it coming – the Chinese don’t have a chance with MG in the UK. I guess that also means we’ll be kissing goodbye to Longbridge not long after. Well done ‘colleagues’…

  1. “the Chinese don’t have a chance with MG in the UK”. Yet here we are 10/11 years later and they’re still plugging away! I’m seeing more and more MG3s around these days, although that might be because our local Arnold Clark is knocking out pre-registered examples at bargain basement prices. Saw my first GS this morning. Surprised by its size. Had thought it was a Mokka/ Ecosport competitor, in reality it’s more Tiguan sized isn’t it? It does make me wonder what exactly MG’s gameplan is. Why are they persisting in the UK while refusing to promote their products?
