Manual sales on the nose, even in the most price-sensitive segments

Manual transmission sales are dipping away across most segments when it comes to new car sales, and the effects are even being felt in the most price-sensitive parts of the market. The light car or city car segment has traditionally been important for manufacturers to offer cheap manual versions of their most affordable models to get buyers through their showroom doors...

MG Motor Australia says safety is a priority

When MG launched the MG 6 locally in 2013 there were some challenges, which ultimately contributed to the SAIC Motor-owned brand retreating from Australia. The MG 6 initially didn't fully comply with Australian Design Rules, and it scored a four-star ANCAP safety rating when tested in 2013...

MG GS SUV on the horizon for Australia

MG Motor Australia has relaunched the iconic British-born brand in Australia with the introduction of the 2017 MG 3 hatch and the 2017 MG 6 Plus fastback. There was something missing, however: the much newer MG GS SUV that went on sale in Europe earlier this year...

MG Motor Australia: 'It will be different this time'

MG has relaunched in Australia under the watchful eye of Chinese owners, SAIC Motor. SAIC is China's largest carmaker and, after taking over MG in 2006, an attempt to return to the Australian market through a local distributor operation was made back in 2013. After failing to make an impact, the iconic British badge has now returned, launching the 2017 MG 3 hatch and 2017 MG 6 Plus fastback in Sydney this week...

MG says three-star safety is 'no issue' for MG 3

Executives from MG’s parent company, SAIC, have defended the MG 3 and MG 6’s sub-standard ANCAP safety rating, stating the models are safe as they are. Speaking to media at the Australian launch of the new LDV G10 turbo-diesel van, Chinese executives said that their market research into the Australian market suggested buyers would still be accepting of the MG 3’s three-star and MG 6’s four-star safety rating, but also conceded that the company is working as fast as it can to improve those scores...
