2012 MG6 gets better fuel economy, reduced CO2 emissions

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 12, 2012

Those who have recently bought the MG6 are likely to be pleased with the improved production methods that were used. In particular, the driver gets better fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions and lower road tax. And because of these new systems, the prices of the all MG6 GT and MG6 Magnette models are now lower. Most of the production improvements were carried out at MG Motor UK’s factory in Birmingham where final assembly and quality sign-off of the MG6 range is accomplished. The MG Birmingham site has two centres of excellence where 300 designers and engineers have been working to make these cars. The CO2 emission levels of the latest 2012 model year cars have decreased from 184g/km to 174g/km, cutting the Vehicle Excise Duty by one band.

This results to savings of £50 on the road tax for the first year and then it will just be £20 a year after that. The fuel economy rating is improved with the urban cycle going up from 26.1mpg to 27.7mpg (+1.6mpg). The extra urban cycle gets a boost from 45.2mpg to 48.7mpg (+3.5mpg) while the combined figure goes up from 35.6mpg to 37.7mpg (+2.1mpg). With these improvements in VED figures, there is a £40 reduction in the recommended-on-the-road prices for all MG6 models.

The entry-level MG6 unit is priced from £15,455 for an MG6 GT fastback in S model trim. These changes mean that the on-the-road prices for MG6 GT models in SE trim have fallen from £16,995 to £16,955 and the TSE trim model is cheaper from £18,995 to £18,955. The flagship MG6 Magnette model is priced lower from £19,995 to £19,955. Guy Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at MG Motor UK, said that the price adjustments for the MG when combined with the outstanding debut by Jason Plato and Andy Neate in racing versions of the MG6 at the Brands Hatch opening races of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship would be good news to all enthusiasts. Jason won the third race and is now at the top of championship points board. The next round at Donington is on April 15.
