2020 MG6

2020 MG6

What do the Kia Cerato, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and MG 6 all have in common?  Yes, they are all a pretty handy set of wheels but they are also core rivals in the mainstream, mid-size car battlefield.  By no means are they the only medium-size cars in their class, however they offer serious levels of equipment, fine engines and are also reasonably priced – not the cheapest in their class but not the most expensive either.  What will make the 2020 MG 6 special in a market with plenty of choice?  Let’s take a closer look and see how the latest MG 6 stacks up in the modern world.

First of all the design is what can make or break a car, and with the new MG 6 we see that it delivers its ace game with its new fastback lines, sleek headlights and on-road presence.  I like the way MG have given this new model a further focused face with slimmer headlights and large, angular air intakes.  The flared wheel arches give a lower, meaner look, while the back end taillights look similar to some of the luxury Mercedes Benz sedans.  Taking that all in, and then blending it all together, makes for a good-looking new MG 6 that sits sweetly on a set of racy 18-inch alloys.

2020 MG6 Interior

Now for the interior; and in here the MG 6 continues the good vibes with its stylish design, comfort and practicality.  Flaunting itself off as a stylish upmarket luxury sports sedan the new MG 6 plays these cards well.  A gorgeous red and black leather interior really does tick the box.  It is glamorous and comfortable, the perfect match for a family-size sports sedan.  Accented leather stitching, carbon fibre inlays, a flat-bottom steering wheel and paddle shifters add to the MG 6’s aura.  There are one or two harder plastics which Audi would never consider, but that said the design and elegance is all there in the very likable new MG6.  MG has nailed it with their 2020 MG6.  It’s a great place to spend time in travel.

Making sure that you offer all the latest luxury features counts a lot in this bracket of car, so the MG 6 delivers the goods in spades.  A leather interior, a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way power adjustable passenger seat, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and a specially cooled centre console storage compartment has the MG6 impressing right from the word go.  An 8-inch infotainment screen has the latest tech that’s linked to a nice six-speaker sound system.  Apple CarPlay comes as standard.  Bluetooth communications, USB and iPod options are some of the features available on the entertainment front.  Rear seat passengers get a nice seating position, and three adults fit nicely along the backseat positions.

Look into the boot area of the new Fastback design MG6 and the luggage space is good for 424 litres with the rear seats and shelf in place.  The rear seats are 60:40 split, so the car offers options for carrying more luggage as well.  Boot access is made easy with the huge Fastback rear gate opening wide and high, and this feature becomes quickly likable.

On the safety front the 2020 MG 6 scores the top 5-stars, so with that comes some excellent safety features that includes a very rigid safety cage, electronic driving aids, front and side airbags, curtain airbags, isofix child seat anchorage points, a rear view camera, cruise control, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a speed limiter.  Hill Start Assist is another handy feature that comes as standard on the new MG6.

Jump into the comfortable driver’s seat, and you have in front of you what I rate as a very nice dash and instrument layout.  The chunky steering wheel fits sweetly into the hand, the dash design is simple making for easy to use functionality, and the driver’s display has tidy analogue speed and rev counters, but between these is also a digital display that you can refer to as well.  A switch has the digital display sifting between various information screens like speed, fuel, battery voltage, range etc.

Push the start button and the MG6 bursts willingly to life, and then quickly settles into a smooth engine note.  Out on the road, the ride comfort is good, handling excellent and the road noise very well muted.  Under the hood is a lively 1.5T petrol engine, the T standing for Turbo.  Power and fuel efficiency play nicely in the MG6, and there is plenty of scope for the driving enthusiast to have fun.  250 Nm of torque is accessible from low engine revs, and peak power is an impressive 123 kW.  These figures are linked to the road via a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic for a very smooth and quick gear shift.  The 2020 MG6 is good for sprinting from zero-to-100 km/h in around seven seconds which is nice and sprightly, beating any of its main rivals with ease.  On average, the MG6 fuel economy impresses with around 5.8 litres/100 km.

The Chinese made MG6 is a well-built car that delivers on all fronts, making it a go-to-option for those wanting a drive with style, modern features and that all important sporty flavour.
