MG MGB: Remembering an automotive icon

When confirmation came last week that MG was pressing ahead with its radical MG Cyberster all-electric sports car, a small nostalgic part of my brain kicked into overdrive.

Small SUV test: 2020 Hyundai Venue v MG ZST comparison

Chinese-owned British brand MG was on a sabbatical from the Australian market in 2015 and 2016, yet it’s now threatening to break into the top 10 sales chart. After just 600 sales in 2017, it’s currently on track to shift about 14,000 units in 2020. With 2018 registering a 401 per cent year-on-year increase, this isn’t a COVID-inspired trend...
