MG? More like My God...

MG is a venerable British brand... wait, wait. MG was a venerable British brand, once upon a time. But it isn't that any more. The latest offerings to bear the MG badge simply don't live up to anything that you would expect of such an iconic marque. I mean, they are kind of cute. And I guess most MGs that have come before them have been cute, too...

2017 MG GS pricing and specs: Four-star ANCAP safety rating confirmed

The 2017 MG GS has snuck onto the Australian market under the cover of the Christmas and New Year holidays, stealthily avoiding market attention. Unusually for a new car, no press release was issued to announce the SUV's coming, but the GS has been among us since December...

MG ZS revealed ahead of Australian debut

The all-new 2017 MG ZS has been revealed, representing a styling and technology step beyond the company's first SUV - the mid-sized GS, revealed late last year. Importantly for the company's Australian operation, recently under new management, the ZS will come here late next year as a crucial new offering in the country's best-selling market segment...

MG 'ZS' compact SUV teased for Guangzhou motor show - UPDATE

After handing down a stylised sketch earlier this month, Chinese-owned British brand MG has now released two revealing previews of its upcoming compact SUV, reportedly set to wear the badge 'ZS'. Destined for the Guangzhou motor show on November 18, the new compact offering is being reported overseas as a rival to the Nissan Juke - which, although an ageing offering, remains the compact SUV to beat in the European market...

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...

2017 MG 3, MG 6 Plus pricing and specs: Reborn marque launches, again, in Australia

MG has launched the 2017 MG 3 hatch and 2017 MG 6 Plus fastback in Australia, marking the Chinese-owned British brand's latest swing at the Australian market. The storied brand's most recent appearance in the hugely competitive Australian market was through a local distributor, but it failed to make any real headway and cars were left unsold for months...

SAIC Motor announces MG plans for Australia

The largest automotive company in China, SAIC Motor, has announced it has established an Australian subsidiary that represents "a vital opportunity in strengthening connections and cooperation between the Australian and Chinese automotive industries"...

2016 MG GS unveiled in the UK

The MG GS crossover made its first public appearance outside of China when it debuted overnight at the London motor show. British versions of the GS will be exclusively powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. In China, the 1.5-litre turbo engine develops 126kW of power and 250Nm of torque. In Britain, the GS will be offered in three trim levels...
