MG has officially unveiled the facelifted MG6, which offers “more MG for your money”.
The manufacturer insists the 2015 MG6 is a new model, but visual changes are limited to new LED daytime running lights and slightly reshaped bumpers. The company says “almost every area of the interior has been enhanced”, including the installment of a new instrument cluster and an electronic handbrake.
The most important technical improvement lies under the hood where the 1.9-liter diesel unit has been “significantly improved”. It still has 150 HP (110 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft), but now produces 119 g/km of CO2 (10 g/km less than before) and returns 4.6 l/100 km (61.4 MPG) in combined cycle. The 2015 MG6 is up to 75 kg lighter than the outgoing car and is 0.5 seconds faster in the 0 to 60 mph (0-96.5 km/h) acceleration, which now takes 8.4 seconds.
The MG6 will be offered in three trim levels – S, TS and TL with prices starting at 13,995 GBP (19,185 EUR) for the base model. The S variant comes with heated front seats as standard, 16-inch alloy wheels and an electronic parking brake. The TS adds part-leather seats, automatic lights and wipers and cruise control, while the range-topping TL offer full leather interior, HID lights, a parking camera and more.
