Stumbled across this deal whilst eating my lunch... Seems like a lot of car for the money & comes with a 7 YEAR WARRANTY. Possibly not a "trendy" brand or badge but plenty of value for money in my opinion.

Pre reg 69 Plate car in good spec in the Excite version with 8" touch screen, parking sensors, 17" alloys, cruise control, climate control, apple play etc.

I actually drove the EV version of this recently, and from what I gather looks wise & tech wise it's very similar. Wasn't wow'd by it, but as a cheapish high seat position car, one that you can just drive from A to B & not have to worry about anything, it's fine...

More reliable than VW, seat, audi and BMW for a start

Saying a skoda looks better than an MG is like saying herpes is better than syphilis.

Not driven a £12k skoda or MG so can't compare refinement. Only new similar size skoda I see is a 1.0 fabia in S spec for £1000 more than this. 0-60 in 15 seconds - some 3s more than this. Thats bus performance.

I wouldnt want one, but seems a good choice if you just want something new, cheap with a good warrantee. Keep it 7 years then dont expect to get more than £1K for it. You probably wont be surprised or disappointed.

It's not that. It could have 10 years. The point is if it's not reliable you'll be in and out of the garage waisting time. Especially if you have a family with children. If you have all the time in the world and have nothing to do then you can think in that manner of way.
It's a shame fuel economy is terrible. Otherwise Could have been a bonus.

And my Audi
Brought one in April. Already done 3500 miles with it, no problem so far. We got it at the original price, which is £13k, so this one is definitely a steal.

For those commenting about reliability, owners hasn't reported any problem so far. If you look at similar comments from owners, Nissan Qashqai is far worse and had so many angry owners claiming to sue Nissan for damage. Well, that's bascially the reason we went for a new MG than a used Qashqai.

Surely the warranty is naff clutch is only good for three years

these are not Uk built its false advertising they do little more than fit badges. What the servicing costs?

these will only win against bmw,seat, Audi etc as the volume they produce compared to mg they have 2 models to look after pretty pointless statement
Have some heat. Checked MG up in Newcastle and no 20% off
When I tried a Richmond Motor group deal in the past I've been told that, that allocation is 'sold out' but here's a very similar but not quite as good deal. Good luck actually getting the car at this price...

Yeah because you can buy a skoda with similar specs for £12 grand. Point me in the direction where I can by the skoda and I'm in, I had a MG when they were MG I don't know much about these new ones but it's a lot of car for the money. Not saying I'd buy one but it's a cheap family run around with a 7 year warranty so should be trouble free motoring.

Is it this model that has no underseal, and the underside starts rusting after a year or so?

People keep going on about reliability with mg and build quality saic who own and build mg cars are one of the biggest manufacturing companys worldwide they are paid to make vw Skoda and some audi for the vw group my dad as owned a mg6 for 6 years and the only problem he as had is broken electric window cable he own a rover 75 before that and it was in the garage more than it was in the road! MG CARS ARE MORE reliable now than they ever were under ROVER! All MY MODELS ARE ALSO STILL BRITISH DESIGNED for price nobody can compete with mg apart from Dacia!

Being "better than Rover" as a good example of damning with faint praise.

If MG have a 3 year warranty on the clutch, that's actually not bad. Under most car warranties, the clutch is classed as as 'wear & tear' item, just like brakes & tyres.

The reviews of these say the engines are not great there have been issues with rust spots at contact points from the manufacturing process The crash tests are not great The dealer network is variable geographically and in terms of quality
However the cars are very well equipped and the easily viewed and touched trim items have a quality feel Some of the items such as the air vents are straight rip off designs from other manufacturers All in all it’s a cabin that’s not a bad place to be The only issue is two engines one a bit naff one very naff (and a “bargain” EV) Go and look and then find a better new car for £11,000

Yup, and Hyundai & Kia are renowned for putting cheap clutches in their 1.7 diesels that wear out very early on.

All my warranties have fully covered everything but tyres and clutch for the duration of the warranty I have a 4 year old car got a three year warranty with this covering it so clutch will be 7 years old

Untrue, crash test was great. check the video for yourself.

This comments from below YouTube video: "Euro ncap remove stars if all new car doesn't have lane departure and autobraking radar systems . It should have got a 4 star really ! . So for a really cheap car it is pretty safe . Ford Mustang got the same rating"

Now wrong with Skoda, Davia never
The Mustang is a very fast coffin.

The 2017 MG ZS test is 3* and is worse that a Dacia Duster of the same vintage even ignoring the electronic aids. 2019 tests are more stringent. It is a very good cheap car nonetheless. For me safety is my highest priority when buying a car for other people it may be different. As I said I liked it but I wouldn’t buy one (and didn’t -having cancelled an EV order).

This is just as much an MG as any other crap build quality Chinese manufactured car from Great Wall or equivalent. SAIC bought a name.

Delude yourself if you like.
3 star crash safety rating in 2019 is very worrying. Is it made of cheese?

70% driver rating and just 50% passenger. That's very low compared to the unreliable Audi, VW, Skoda and SEATs reviewed in the same year under the same criteria.
