MG relaunches in the UK

After three years of kit building the ancient TF Roadster, MG has officially relaunched itself in the United Kingdom.

To spearhead the "reawaking," the company introduced the Euro-spec MG 6 which was originally unveiled at Auto Shanghai 2009. While the Chinese and UK versions are virtually identical, the British MG 6 has a nicer interior and will be built in Birmingham, England.

Three different trim levels will be offered, but all models come nicely equipped with power windows / locks, keyless ignition, and air conditioning. Options include leather seats, GPS navigation, cruise control, and a rear view camera.

When the car goes on sale in April, it will be available exclusively with a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 160 PS (118 kW / 158 hp). Later, in early 2012, a 1.9-liter diesel will join the lineup.
